Google Trends Rocks!

Google Trends launched today. It is a tool that reports the number of searches that people have initiated using Google search over the last couple of years. You type in any search term and it will return a chart that shows you how popular that term has been over the last few years. Additionally, if there are major spikes in the chart (due to drastic increases in the number of searches for that term) Google will attempt to line them up with events at that time that contributed to the increased popularity. It also breaks out the search popularity by cities, regions, and languages. On top of that, you can compare up to five search terms at a time.

For example (and a boring example at that), check out what I got for Paris Hilton:

I'll make sure to post any good ones I get. Any ideas?
