    Can you go 24 hours without touching smart tech?

    As per the title. Can you survive without your phone, tablet, smart watch, laptop etc for 24 hours. Not during the week as that will be unrealistic. But maybe a Saturday or Sunday? Willing to try. That is all I can say.

    How safe is the Gautrain?

    Recently moved to Centurion and I work in Midrand. My fiance works in Sandton. All three locations are close to the stations and the train is making more sense to me than driving.

    Why is my TV showing me adverts?

    This is getting too much. Some reports that their smart TV is now showing you adverts when connected to the internet and when you are in the setup menus or home screen. Your TV will also track what you watch in order to show relevant adverts to you. How long before they take over your TV...

    Find my TV License number

    How do I find my TV license number? I'm buying a new TV and since I recently moved the TV license is still linked to my old address. In order to update the details I need to register on the TV Lic site and they want the number. The site is, as expected, useless.

    Not impressed with VOX customer service

    Earlier this year we confirmed our occupation date for the new house. Yay! Then I was told that Openserve handles the installation of the lines and based on past experiences I booked the install in June to ensure that everything will be on track for VOX to do their part beginning of August...

    Disclosing mental health to employer

    In the past I disclosed to an employer who I really trusted that I had been diagnosed with a mental health condition. About two months later I was retrenched "for a different reason". I don't think this was coincidence but I could never prove it. For the rest of career I refused to disclose...
