Gigglebit: time-travelling gamer

18 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.

Today, one freaked out Xbox gamer found himself in the midst of a time paradox after he received a strange message from another gamer claiming to be him from the future.

Perhaps the more important question is, who exactly is Sandy Wilcox?
