    Xiaomi Redmi Note 8

    Latest rumor says the Pro will have a Helio processor. While good for gaming, nothing beats a Snapdragon for battery life.

    So I went to Capitec

    The plot thickens. Now I know their response that they make no profit from the R65 is BS. I'm betting they are intentionally making the cards only last 12 months as an extra revenue stream!!

    So I went to Capitec

    Why should a client pay? If the client lost the card, they must definitely pay. But why is the card expiry the client's problem? It's not the R65. It's the point of having to pay for an expired card I take exception to and I refuse to pay it.

    So I went to Capitec

    2 things. Replacement fee for lost or stolen card is all good. Replacement fee for an expired card not good. FNB Easy account is a savings account and direct competitor to a Capitec Global One account. Both also use debit cards which expire. Only FNB replaces an expired card for free which is...

    So I went to Capitec

    As mentioned, Virgin Money expired card replacement is free including courier. My FNB easy account (R4.95 per month) gives me a free replacement debit card when the current expires. Capitec are the odd one out here.

    So I went to Capitec

    Yeah, their excuse is BS. As we all know, they print the card inside the branch while you wait. The cost to company per card is a few Rand. I would have no complaint if I had lost the card or reported it stolen, but they created the card with an expiry date, so in my books it's very simple: They...

    So I went to Capitec

    So Capitec want to debit my account R65 for a new card! I said to them, my card has expired. Didn't matter, they insisted one must pay for a replacement card even if the reason is expiry. Their Twitter SM team confirmed same with this bullsh$t: "There is a fee of R65 for this. Our card...

    Xiaomi Mi Box / Mi Box S [Android TV OS]

    My Mi Box 3 has started doing funny things with YouTube. If I seek forward in a video, it then reboots the device and it even landed on the boot recovery page with the android man once. Turned it off and on and it came back fine until I tried to seek again. Very strange

    The Official Xiaomi Thread

    I've bumped my 4 against multiple objects without any resultant scratches. My 3 has a deep scratch near the top from brushing a wall. The problem with a screen protector is you won't be able to swim/bath/shower with it on anymore.

    The Ford Ranger (T6) Thread

    GFV deals are great for business but if buying in personal capacity I'd weigh up the pro's and con's carefully. The 20k per annum mileage limit is fine, and the interest rate is good, but I don't know if I could just hand back a vehicle I had paid R375k on. The other option of refinancing is a...

    Dropbox Hits Record Low as Billings Offset Product Revamp

    Their entry level paid package is too large and too expensive. If they introduced a cheaper 100GB or 200GB then I'd pay just like I do for Google Drive. Dropbox strike me as arrogant by not offering smaller packages and their financial results are paying the price.

    Samsung launches Galaxy Note 10

    "Both devices boast high-end hardware, including WQHD AMOLED displays" Nope. The normal Note 10 has only a 1080 screen which is poor considering the price. Only the 10+ has 1440p resolution
