If you find yourself at Exit 131 on the Garden State Parkway, you will be near Edison, Middlesex County, New Jersey. And you may ask yourself, "Why is this town named Edison?" And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful wife!" Thankfully, we are here to tell you that it is named after Thomas Edison who had his research laboratory there. In his Menlo Park laboratory Edison invented the phonograph and a commercially viable incandescent bulb.

Another interesting fact is that Edison was ranked #2 in New Jersey in Money Magazine's "Best Places to Live" in 2006.

Cyber X Designs carries on Thomas Edison's tradition of Jersey-based invention by inventing new web applications and scripts regularly. Though our office is not in Menlo Park, we are considering calling it the "Laboratory."
