Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.
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.
Today, we bring you the very best of TL;DR Wikipedia, your rapid-fire guide to modern life.
TL;DR Wikipedia summarises common concepts with the brevity of an e-card, which makes sense as it’s a daughter site of someecards.com – and it has inherited its parent’s biting sense of humour.
From new services such as Apple Pay or products such as the Apple Watch, to fresh apps such as Tinder and internet staples such as Google, these glib tech descriptions might be tongue-in-cheek, but it’s the morsel of truth in each one that makes them more than just pithy placecards.
