Gigglebit: every Apple fan boy ever

6 Jun 2014

Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Earlier this week at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference the tech giant revealed a few surprises on the software front in terms of iOS 8, Mac OS X Yosemite and a whole new software language, but alas, there just wasn’t that “one more thing” reveal that the late Steve Jobs was famous for. In the video below we look at a parody of how Apple fanbois (fan boys) around the world may have behaved during this year’s keynote.
