How Filipinos Google-searched this 2022

What were the top searches this year?

Published

The year 2022 has been nothing short of events that rocked the internet — from politics to sports, from pop culture to celebrities, and more. Google recently released its Year in Search 2022 which compiled the list of top items Filipinos searched for in the calendar year, and familiar search terms have emerged on top.

This year in Trending Searches, Filipinos keyed in “Halalan 2022”, “VaxCertPh”, and “precinct finder” the most, in that order.

Hit game Wordle came in at no. 4, while another, Axie Infinity, ranked no. 9. Shows like All of Us Are Dead, Encanto, and the keywords “Jeffrey Dahmer” also made the Top 10 list at no. 5, no. 8, and no. 10, respectively.

Rounding out the list is “Warriors vs Celtics” at no. 6, which of course was the 2022 NBA Finals series won by Golden State, and “Ukraine” at no. 7 due to the country’s on-going conflict against Russia.

To give you a better picture of how Filipinos searched in Google this year, here’s a complete rundown of each list:

Finally! Grab users may now pay directly using GCash

Much-awaited partnership

Published

GCash Grab

Grab Philippines and GCash have finally struck a partnership deal that will make payments on the superapp even easier and more convenient.

Starting February, users will be able to add GCash as a direct payment method on the Grab app, making cashless transactions on food and grocery deliveries, car transport, and other services cashless.

Prior to the collaboration, GCash users could only send money from their account to their GrabPay wallet, and vice-versa, causing a bit of hassle switching in between apps on one’s phone screen.

The partnership also means there will be no more transaction fees unlike before when Grab users have to cash in using their credit or debit cards or linked bank accounts.

Grab customers may also avail of GCash exclusive deals, and even get treats when they pay using the e-wallet.

Apple halts development of in-house chip

Broadcom is still in

Published

on

Apple is currently on a quest to reduce its reliance on third-party components for its devices. For the most part, the company is successful in doing so. Apple Silicon is already an important part of the brand’s identity — with work on more in-house components ongoing. Now, Apple is reportedly pausing development on one of its upcoming chips.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will delay the development of its in-house connectivity chip. In the meantime, the brand will keep relying on Broadcom for the same components, going into the iPhone 15 series.

To be clear, the paused component only deals with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Apple is still developing its in-house modem for 5G connectivity — according to outside reports, at least. While the Broadcom deal will still continue, Qualcomm might still get the axe after Apple develops its replacement chip.

Given the positive response to Apple Silicon, building more in-house components might ultimately work well for the brand. If anything, the company can rest easier by controlling how one of its components is produced.

Besides Apple, other brands are also developing their in-house chipsets to rival component makers like Qualcomm. Google, for instance, is doing relatively well with the Tensor lineup. Additionally, though the upcoming series will rely on Qualcomm, Samsung is currently working to bring the Exynos lineup to match current standards.
