    South Africa’s first smartphone factory – Photos

    Uhmmm do they not know about Xiaomi? I mean for R3999 you can get a really good Xiaomi that knocks the socks off most other devices in that price range and it looks modern with far more storage, better CPU and over just better for the same price? I mean R4000 for a Snapdragon SD435 phone with...

    Load-shedding escalated to Stage 2

    There might not have been load shedding but far flung areas had no or little electricity, in fact sometimes it wasn't even that far flung. The power grid wasn't always dandy either Northriding has been having power issues going on 25+ years. I know I lived there in the 90s right through to the...

    Load-shedding escalated to Stage 2

    I only had a lowly 133mhz at the time :-(. But still not bad for someone who fixed other peoples PC's to build his own :-).

    New fangled P1s in 1997? They'd been around for four years already, I remember in 1996 my school did a revamp of it's computer labs and all of the machines were replaced with new fangled P1-166mhzs which were 300mhz by the time I did Matric in 1999. We still played on the old 386 machines before...

    Just shows you, it's not speed that kills, it's the sudden stop at the end. I mean his heart did stop sooooo.

    Load-shedding escalated to Stage 2

    What? How did you do the coding portion? There were two exams for my comp sci in 99. The handwritten one and the programming portion.

    Beware fake telephone directory scams

    When I lived in a complex we saw maybe 3 getting delivered over the course of 7 years living there. Every year it just got thinner and thinner.

    Woolworths pulls bag with apologies...

    Reporting of an Accident - Is it a legal requirement?

    Yup, 180k fine or jail time. So rather report it. No drivers license is another fine but it will be smaller than the 180k.

    Is money (or the love of it) the root of all evil?

    Actually human greed is probably more likely the cause of it. Money is normally just a sort of IOU. In fact there probably isn't enough money in the world to actually give out physically, so it's just a bunch of 1s and 0s as a promise. If I swipe my card for R200 my bank promises you that it can...
