Year in Review 2012: Top 10 Searches
Chalk up another one for the voter: People may have been wearied by the negative campaigns, but they persevered through the slog of politics and made "elections" the year's most searched term. The fifth iteration of an Apple smartphone, a glorious gathering of athletes, the passing of a superstar, and a bevy of celebrities—including one duchess—also mesmerized online audiences in 2012.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told President Barack Obama on Wednesday that he hopes the U.S. leader will make sure that any final nuclear deal between Iran and world powers does not allow Tehran to stand at the "threshold" of being able to develop nuclear weapons. In a meeting at the White House, Netanyahu said preventing Iran from acquiring an atomic bomb was a critical goal that he and Obama shared but also urged the president to exercise "your leadership" in Iran nuclear talks to prevent Tehran from even having the capacity to develop such a weapon. ...

BOSTON (Reuters) - Cybersecurity researchers have uncovered a computer virus that spies on Apple Inc's iOS operating system for the iPhone and iPad, and they believe it is targeting pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. The malicious software, known as Xsser, is capable of stealing text messages, photos, call logs, passwords and other data from Apple mobile devices, researchers with Lacoon Mobile Security said on Tuesday. They uncovered the spyware while investigating similar malware for Google Inc's Android operating system last week that also targeted Hong Kong protesters. ...
- Spooky Quantum Physics Demonstration Tonight: How to Watch Live
Dive headlong into the weird world of quantum mechanics tonight (Oct. 1) with Harvard physics professor Subir Sachdev who will explain the link between the strange phenomena of spooky quantum entanglement and the wonder of weightless levitation made possible by superconductors. You can watch a live webcast on Live Science of Sachdev's presentation at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, tonight at 7 p.m. EDT, where he will discuss ongoing research with high-temperature superconductivity and will also perform a demonstration of superconductor levitation. "What I hope people will take away is some understanding of what quantum mechanics is really about and why it's so important," Sachdev said in a video trailer for the presentation. Sachdev will focus on how a greater understanding of the bizarre nature of quantum entanglement can lead to more-practical superconductors, which are materials through which electricity can flow without resistance.
