Yes, Google very definitely is an International entity, BUT I don’t think it has any particular or special affiliation or connection with London or even the U.K. So, why ‘Whitechapel’?

Yes, it might have been for the band. Possible.

Why am I intrigued. For us Brits ‘Whitechapel’ has certain definite connotations, chief among them ‘Jack the Ripper‘! Was that it? Nothing wrong. New processor is likely to be a RIPPER. If so rather cute & clever. There is also the Bangladeshi connection & it is possible that the Google team may have some of those as key team members.

I would love to know. I would love to be able to Google it. SMILE.
