    Best ISP in South Africa revealed

    I'm considering moving to Mind the Speed. Since they haven't gotten many votes, I'm wondering if their high rating is well earned or if they're still too small to have too many issues.

    Zoom launches new hardware for remote working

    This is pathetic. So pay for a locked down application specific piece of hardware, that costs as much as infinitely more useful laptop, just so that Zoom can brick it via an update a few years from now?

    Satellite vs DSL vs Fibre vs LTE - Uncapped prices compared

    Remember when fibre was touted to be the long awaited messiah of internet connectivity that was supposed to free us from the monopoly of Telkom preventing us from enjoying much faster speeds at lower prices? Sure, there's no fair use policy, but I'd take a faster capped connection, with a...

    Samsung to launch new 8TB SSD

    I can see a lot of upset customers that are going to use as a boot drive and experience slow performance or even premature failure. The problem is that they're not going to know the difference between SLC, MLC, TLC and QLC. On top of that retailers tend not specify the type of NAND or whether...

    Webcam suggestion

I would like to know does it allow you to log power consumption over a set time period, like 24h? I am trying to investigate why my electricity bill is high and it would...
