    Rand hits R18 to the dollar

    13 years ago the Rand was at R6.58 to the Dollar and R10.57 to the Pound... We'll probably never again see those kind of rates, at least not in our life times.

    Which ride-hailing service do you think is the safest?

    Been using Uber since about 2016, not had any major incidents so far. Only had one issue where the guy got a flat 5 minutes after picking me up, but got a replacement car pick me up in less than 5 minutes. But yes, in this country, chances are that my luck will run out eventually.

    Load reduction started in Joburg today

    Everyone shitting and moaning about this, are any of you even in those areas that are affected by load reduction? Sure, the automatic shutdown of Geysers is a bit crap, but I'm guessing no one on here are in the areas that are affected by load reduction.

    Pretty much everything that was shown a Xbox Showcase over the weekend

    DA looks like a trailer for a Pay to Win Mobile game. Will see what the gameplay looks like, but I really do not have high hopes for it.

    Eskom warns that over 2,000 transformers are overburdened due to illegal connections and tampering

    Problem is, those overburdened ones are probably in areas where we live as well. City Power never compensated for the increase in housing in the suburbs.
