Apple's (AAPL) tablet computer lost by a hair to No. 1 Chatroulette in Google's (GOOG) list of the fastest rising search terms for 2010. Twitter was No. 8 and Facebook No. 10. Android did not make the list.

In the consumer electronics category, the iPad was No. 1 and the iPhone 4 No. 2. Android didn't make this list either, but an Android phone -- the HTC Evo 4G  -- did.
