Apple's iPhone 4S uses Crowdsourcing
Distributed Knowledge

The use of the term crowd-sourced as part of the in-phone display text on the iPhone 4S marks another landmark event in the adoption of the term crowdsourcing.

I’ve been taking note of any signs that give rise to the term crowdsourcing entering the mainstream lexicon. One interesting indicator is the statistics on the number of monthly searches of the term. Over the last twelve months the number of global monthly searches has nearly doubled from just over 60,000 a month to 110,000 month, today.

If you look at the peaks, not surprisingly, they coincide with news items that either report the use of crowdsourcing by big companies (i.e. [B] Microsoft) or by articles on crowdsourcing by big publications (i.e. [A] – Information Week, [D] – Business Week,  [G] – Forbes).
