    SAA surprises with cheapest Mauritius flight prices

    I also did once unfortunately in that battered old boeing they painted up for the American Olympics in Atlanta.. NEVER AGAIN.. NOT EVER.. And only reason was to redeem voyager miles.. Now they've also lost their reputation too.

    SA's electric car boom is coming

    Paris (and other major cities) have public transport and not much pollution.. As in electric trains / trams etc so not much need for electric cars although I am sure they will buy them if the price is right. Africa in Contrast will have polluting coal fired power stations creating electricity...

    Joburg's big plans to take over Soweto electricity provisioning

    I hear you my friend, but you are missing the point.. Electricity should be supplied to the consumer at the cost of production minus middlemen.. NOT from retailers best price including markup.

    Joburg's big plans to take over Soweto electricity provisioning

    That's all very well except that every extra middleman adds a profit.. In my humble opinion they don't need to unbundle escom, just decriminalize it and the municipalities too for that matter.. Escom is already unbundled in that they supply the municipalities that supply consumers.

    Joburg's big plans to take over Soweto electricity provisioning

    Hmm.. There shouldn't be a retail 'fullstop'.. Escom should be selling electricity to the consumer at cost without municipal middlemen just like it was in the beginning. Electricity should be a utility service by the government for the benefit of the people. Just like it was in the beginning...

    FNB : Pay and Clear now (R36.00)

    No.. the bank makes an extra two days interest.. Note: there's always a good reason for things that seem rediculous in this day and age. Another note: weird how they can debit your credit card at the speed of light even on weekends and public holidays (so you will have a higher balance and pay...

    How much sugar is packed into your favourite chocolate bars

    Yes, and if you read the small print carefully, what it actually is saying is that of the cocoa in the chocolate bar, it is 99% pure.. However most chocolate bars only contain about 40% cocoa.. So if the 40% is 99 or more usually 75% pure there could be a quarter to third cocoa.. The rest is...

    Manual vs Automatic

    I agree both of my partner's audi A3's had their gearbox replaced under warranty.. Not a good product. But having said that, my mercedes Benz dct 7 speed has served me well for over 10 years now.. I would only buy auto dct, never cvt or multi.

    Do you use a broker for insurance ? And why ?

    Brokers always get a bulk buy policy discount deal from underwriters that you cannot get for a once off policy from the underwriter.. And besides, the underwriters don't really want the hassle of dealing with once off policies so they charge you more for the privilege..
