    What would it take to get you to pay your TV license?

    UK and Germany, among others countries charge a License. If you ask me, I will be more than happy to pay for it if I were in UK, as the BBC generates fantastic content. I cannot comment about Germany, but i'm sure the DW also generates decent content for their market. Here in SA, they should...

    Do you use a VPN or SmartDNS service for streaming?

    Is this thread sponsored by multichoice again? Well, regardless if the VPN/DNS service that you can use, the main reason for me is to access BBC iPlayer (unavailable out of the UK), Zattoo (best european live TV service from Switzerland/Germany), Hulu and HBO. Netflix content difference is...

    Conspiracy theory: Saturday: connectivity went down as the 2nd half started. Sunday: connectivity went down as the England vs Tonga started (they were singing the anthems). Maybe the idiots from Monochoice are behind this...

    Moving from Cool Ideas - The best ISP to move to

    I signed up for Mind The Speed as they came forward with a quite attractive plan a little ago... 2 months free, 10% discount for 6 months, fixed IP and symmetrical 100/100. I should be connected by the 30th sep. Only then can report back about their QoS.

    iPad Stylus

    Stylus for note taking? On the ipad? Are you crazy? Why not just "record" instead? Plenty apps to record audio. I should recommend the stylus maybe for some art/design apps, but not for taking notes.
