Gigglebit: Google maps West Philly to Bel Air

26 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? What 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.

This time of year, many people may be embarking on their summer holidays. Anyone contemplating a road trip, say, from West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Bel Air, California, need look no futher than Google Maps for directions.
