    Pre paid sim, buy data bundles for iPad

    Hi I'm looking to get a iPad. I will be using it on wifi at home 95% of the time so it's not worth getting a data contract because it will be a waist of data. I was thinking best would be to get a pre paid Cell C sim and to just buy data bundles for the times I'm away from wifi. Just want to...

    M-web 1 MB line upgrade not quite what I expected or is it just me?

    So like most 384 kb line owners I couldn't wait for the free Telkom line upgrade to 1 MB. It has been upgraded about 2 weeks ago and since then it has been kind of disappointing. About 2 or 3 times per day, the speed drops quite a lot and remains very slow for about a hour, with slow I mean even...

    The test patern/tone on VHS cassettes

    I think it's safe to assume that everybody born before the year 2000 has seen a movie on a VHS cassette sometime in their life and for older people it was a standard in their lives for a long time before DVD took over. We rented VHS movies and we also recorded straight from TV for personal use...

    This Sasol advertisement aired in the mid 90s back when most of us still only had SABC TV, think it was 95 or 96 and it was originally in afrikaans. So, as I remember the two grandparents had to look after the baby boy in his pram. He then filled up at a Sasol pump, then he said "Glug, Glug"...
