    I tried to book online to renew my driver’s licence – What an epic fail

    Demand has always been there. With the normal queueing system people stood the whole day and then were sent back. With this at least you don't waste a whole day if you can't get a slot

    I tried to book online to renew my driver’s licence – What an epic fail

    Yes that would be good, I see that they do require the booking fee now. We still had to pay via credit card at the Licensing Centre when I did it. Hopefully it is the full renewal cost, then people won't bail out.

    I tried to book online to renew my driver’s licence – What an epic fail

    Did you think the slots will just be open the whole time? Centurion slots open on Monday at 8h00. It gets filled in about 30 minutes. You checking the next day is a bit optimistic. It also don't make sense to open the slots for the whole year with some people not going when they booked the...

    Electronic driver's licence coming to South Africa

    They do, the 3rd last digit is just 1 instead of 0 like citizens. We do normally follow Europe so if it work like that there it will probably still come later.

    Electronic driver's licence coming to South Africa

    I guess this is a step in the right direction, but shouldn't we just have a digital ID where all these things link to? Like with the ID it can then check the validity of your license, passport, vaccine id etc

    Apple Pay South Africa

    I would pay for it yes. There are many things people will buy just so you don't have to do something. People would change banks just so they can have Apple Pay and that is more difficult to do than get someone to pay R10K more for a feature on a car.

    ACSA acting like typical thugs

    I just checked. Only R34 for the uber, but it is about 14 minutes. For me it is just better to take the train. Less hassle. But it currently the trains are only running every 30 minutes as well (covid), so it might work.

    ACSA acting like typical thugs

    Trip from Rhodesfiled is like R62 and to the airport R200. How much is the uber to Rhodesfield? And is it worth the time?

    Apple Pay South Africa

    It doesn't, but it is part of my (their) empty pockets project. It in fact makes the largest difference in emptying my pockets by not having to carry my wallet. But Apple is also going in the empty pocket direction. All new BMW's have Apple Carkey compatibility where you can give access to...

    ACSA acting like typical thugs

    I have used one of this services before and had to give them my flight details. I don't know how they do it but they were waiting for me when I exited. If they follow the flight etc then I think it is fine, but if they wait till I get there it might be a problem. They also picked me up at the...

    Apple Pay South Africa

    I know that you didn't say that. But only having your phone instead of a wallet, keys and phone is also still nice. This probably won't be as convenient for you as you already made a concerted effort to reduce your carry around and doing this is probably not going to give you a big benefit. I...

    Apple Pay South Africa

    Most people I know are in my boat with Apple Pay. We just don't want to carry around extra stuff. I don't want to carry my car keys and wallet with me anymore. I can already replace those two with my watch that I already have (haven't pulled the trigger on getting a new car yet). I would...

    Apple Pay South Africa

    While I do agree with you on the Vitality stuff. I disagree with the watch things. Most people I know with Apple Watches wear them everyday. I don't have vitality anymore because of some of the things you stated and more, but I don't find any additional hoops I have to jump through for Apple...

    Mortal Kombat (reboot) 2021

    There is a lot of mortal combat in the movie. It is just Outworld trying to make sure that they win before the tournament.
