    Insider Blows Whistle & Exec Reveals Google Plan to Prevent “Trump situation” in 2020 on Hidden Cam

    Google needs to be broken up like Standard Oil was. Some companies become too big (like Google) and therefore distort the freedom of the market. They have ridiculous percentage of the pc and mobile internet search.

    Denel unable to pay full salaries this month

    Lol. Know a school mate who got a scholarship at university from Denel. Fortunately for him he also got a scholarship to study overseas for his post-graduate studies and has predictably not returned. Maybe I should send him this story...

    Discovery Vitality [2019]

    So now that I have to get new sports watch (thanks Discovery you useless gits :mad:), I am going to be using the Healthy Gear Benefit. I see that it is divided into two portions: 25% cashback and a further 50% if you reach your goals for two years. Question regarding the cashback: how long...

    Insider Blows Whistle & Exec Reveals Google Plan to Prevent “Trump situation” in 2020 on Hidden Cam

    Big Tech needs to be broken up. All of the Big Tech companies seem to be staffed by far left zealots, and Google seems to be the worst of the lot. What do they put in the water in Commiefornia? Also, are they trying to influence the election? Oh sorry, it's only Russia that does that ;)

    EXCLUSIVE: Ramaphosa 'misled' Parliament over Bosasa donation, says Public Protector

    The PP, Malema and Magashule axis just trying to dig up any old dirt to throw on Cyril. This probably means that the ANC will get rid of the PP this year although the Magashule faction will vote against it so not clear the ANC will get 2/3rds. The ANC won't vote for a DA motion, we will only...

    Soweto residents: Hell no, we won't pay for electricity!

    The client state is working as intended. ANC willing to overlook this as they need the votes in Soweto for municipal, provincial and national elections.

    AMCU wants R17 000 minimum wage for platinum miners

    Wasn't it R10 000 just one or two years ago? Inflation is not growing that fast!

    South African police officers to wear body cameras

    Will the cops want this when they are well known for accepting bribes?

    Zindzi Mandela racist tweet

    Retail is also pretty dead in SA at the moment. There are currently two big vacant spots in Cavendish, an upmarket shopping mall in Cape Town. God knows what is happening in the less popular and smaller shopping centres. Also remember Krispy Kreme couldn't cut it here. I do have it on good...

    Brick-making not sexy enough for jobless South African youth

    Ah, the huge entitlement complex of South Africa's youth, facilitated by politicians from the ANC/EFF who have this notion that most things should be "free" (e.g higher education) and one does not need to work hard to move up the ranks - which is somewhat true in the SA public sector but not so...
