Fun With GoogleTrends

The geeks at Google have released a new toy: Google Trends. It allows you to look up the popularity of searchterms over the years, but the real fun lies in the fact that you can compare searchterm popularity of different phrases using comma’s. Here’s a couple:
- yin vs. yang
- the vs. and
- pro vs. con
- and my personal favorite: weapons of mass distruction vs. enron. :)
