    Apple Pay South Africa

    Yes, maybe it is just a range thing. My watch is a series 2 so that might have something to do with it as well

    When colour becomes the deciding factor for iPhone's dominance

    No one I know buys iPhones for status. iPhones aren't even the most expensive phones you can buy. They literally buy it because it is easier to continue from their last one. You say that iPhone users just insults people when challenged, but just go look at the comments here and most iPhone...

    When colour becomes the deciding factor for iPhone's dominance

    Then my iPad mini 2 still gets updates even though it is officially not supported anymore. A security patch and a OS update is not the same thing. My iPad mini 2 got officially unsupported in 2019. That is 6 years support to the newest OS version. I still receive security updates every...

    Apple Pay South Africa

    This have happened twice now. My watch doesn't tap on the terminal but my card does. Both instances was FNB machines. I don't know if that is just a coincidence or if this is why they didn't want to roll it out yet. Or maybe it just didn't pick up my watch.

    Powership contract will cost South Africa R218 billion - CSIR

    Just on our contract, I haven't seen articles that give me what I want to see. Is this a guaranteed 1,220 megawatts always on over 20 years? If that is the case (which I doubt as some maintenance will be needed) it would work out to about R1.02/kWh which is cheaper than what Eskom can...

    Jupiter Legacy

    I also finished all the episodes, was difficult to get through. It is a bit risky to use one whole season just as setup. The 2 timeline things also didn't work for me as the 2 timelines doesn't compliment each other, like how the Witcher did. I'll give the first few episodes a go in the next...

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

    Edit: Sorry I misunderstood. But everyday people were sent back and the officials know that they refused people after a certain time. So it should have been clear that it was oversubscribed. With the new system it already saves you all the time you normally would have queued. How long is...

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

    The do have day tabs on there for which centres releases the booking on that day. The only problem is that the slots are booked up really fast

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

    No, they don't allow you to queue in person if you don't have a booking on the booked days. Centurion use to allow two days for walk-ins. I don't know if that is still the case

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

    The slots are opened at 8, on they day they specify at the place closest to you. That is when you should look.

    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...
