    Takealot vs Makro vs Everyshop online shopping and delivery test

    Agree here, if I had the choice between a range of suppliers at the same cost, I'd take Takealot for the convenience. And even if slightly more expensive, would still take for the convenience, unless they somehow started sucking really bad.

    Well you just have to go in with the right expectations, like in the early 2000's when kalahari.net was a thing.

    Wait... is there an actual testicle grooming kit? Update: No there isn't, but I wonder what this poor poor search bot was exposed to.

    Absolutely. Bought my first Xiaomi device 5 years ago and with the price I thought it would be the usual Chinese cheap crap but they do seem to want to deliver a good product. I know it's anecdotal but from chargers to phones to battery banks all my devices are still going after many years.

    I guess, I mean I can just treat the screen as a if it had a smaller aspect ratio, but something just bugs me about it, uniformity-wise.

    Eskom cuts Gauteng load-shedding to two hours

    From the perspective of Eskom it's load-shedding, as that's the intention. From the consumer perspective I agree it's a blackout or just simply.. a power failure.

    Eskom cuts Gauteng load-shedding to two hours

    I've lived in both 2.5 hour and 4.5 hour areas and not really sure which is worse personally. In Midrand we had 9 hours total on some days but on other days there was no loadshedding to compensate. 2.5 hour slots definitely make it easier to work around though. Backup equipment to keep your...

    Stage 2 loadshedding from today until... 11pm Monday

    This is confusing, we were supposed to be off from 7:00am to 9:30am but nothing happened. I almost feel disappointed, planning for a non-event.
