A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Wednesday, October 5th

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As we’ve reported before, our good friends over at Google are starting up a daily puzzle challenge. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. And much to our enjoyment, they’ve decided to share the puzzles with us at GeekDad (hmm… Google a Day? GD? GeekDad?), so each morning at 12:01am ET you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here. SPOILER WARNING: As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS! Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience. And now, without further ado, we give you… TODAY’S PUZZLE:

Bluetooth is a wireless technology, but the term originally referred to a king who erected two runic stones. What are these stones called?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (HIGHLIGHT TO SEE):

Get a list of countries by searching [countries in alphabetical order]. Zambia and Zimbabwe are the last two. Find a map including both countries and their capitals by querying [Harare to Lusaka] on Google Maps. Zoom out to the southwest and search the map with [UNESCO waterfall] to find Victoria Falls.
