What's hot according to Google

Today (at least I just discovered it today), Google launched a new service called Hot Trends, which is a part of Google Trends.

It basically lists down the top 100 searches for a certain day. However, it does not list down the top searches per se. According to Google Blog,

Hot Trends aren't the search terms people look for most often -- those are pretty predictable, like [weather] or [games] or perhaps [myspace]. Yes, [sex] too. Instead, the Hot Trends algorithm analyzes millions of searches to find those that are deviating the most relative to their past traffic. And the outcome is the Hot Trends list.
I'm not really sure if this will benefit a lot of users, but hey, it's a pretty nifty service.

Being in the know is hot these days.
