    Proposal to automatically pass failing learners back on the table for South African schools

    This government is a business whose sole purpose is to stay in power by collecting votes. As such, this strategy makes perfect sense.

    Takealot opens 25 new collection points in South Africa

    Until you get a message telling you that your delivery is scheduled for today and you wait at the office until 6pm and nothing arrives. At least with the collection points, you know it's there when they say it is.

    This years iPhone will come without a screen. Instead there will be a USB C port and a separate screen will be available for purchase. Of course this means you won't be able to use your screen and charge your phone at the same time, but for most users this will not be a problem.

    Apple has launched a new iPod

    Interesting perspective - I can also see some potential sales to people who have older car radios with an aux jack. Be interesting to see how many they will sell. I for one really don't need one and I honestly think that the market for this is really limited, specially at that price.

Pro tip : they are closed from 12 to 1 for lunch so don't get there at 12:05 like I did :(. None of the people I was with got a collection SMS, some had waited...
