The gadget world has been enthralled by the high profile bidding wars for Waze – Facebook, Google and Apple were all reported as positively frothing at the mouth at the idea of becoming owners. The deal has now been closed with a spectacular $1 billion (£643m) from Google. You can read Google’s official blog article on the matter here.
If you’re not familiar with Waze I can highly recommend it. It’s a super app that allows you to check traffic on your chosen route in real time with users further along the road updating with news of any jams, accidents and other hold-ups etc. Perfect when you need to be somewhere in a hurry and it works just like a Satnav giving you a choice of routes so you can find the one with the least issues likely to hold you up.
