Commerce, however, is never far from people's minds at this time of year and the glance at the lists of popular products searches shows that although there is a lot of economic gloom around consumer spending is still going strong :

- wii fit
- ipod touch
- xbox 360
- nintendo ds
- ipod nano
- nikon d90
- digital picture frame
and aside from a strong performance by people looking for Ugg boots it's games and gadgetry that is dominating the search lists.
