Online behemoth Google has released its most-searched terms for 2014. So, what were the Danes most interested in this year?
The newest iPhone, football fever and Robin Williams. 
 
Based on Google’s end-of-the-year list of the service’s most-searched terms, those were the things Danes were most interested in this year. 
 
The most popular search term in Denmark was ‘iPhone 6’, followed by ‘VM 2014’ – the Danish term for the football World Cup – and Robin Williams, the US actor and comedian who committed suicide in August. 
 
Perhaps not surprisingly for a country deemed the most connected in the world, beyond the newest iPhone’s top spot on the list two other items among the top ten searches were also smartphone-related: the apps 2048 and Flappy Bird took the fifth and sixth place. 
 
And the Eurovision fever that swept Denmark in May as Copenhagen hosted the annual (and in this instance very, very expensive) extravaganza was also evident in Danes’ Google searches. ‘MGP 2014’ – the Danish expression for Eurovision - and the contest’s winner, Conchita Wurst, were both among the top 10 search terms of the year. Denmark’s entrant in the song contest, Basim, was the third most-searched Danish man. 
 
Rounding out the overall top ten were searches for Ebola, the European championships in handball and DR's much-hyped television series 1864
