Sci-Ryder – The Next Big Thing In Gaming

Where lies the next frontier in gaming? More bandwidth, bigger hard drives, bigger screens, better graphics and resolution…? One thing is certain: Everything will get bigger, brighter, faster… better!

But that is evolution – not revolution. The next frontier will not be in our toys, but how we play with them. Desks are dead. Gone are the days of being forced to engage on your desk or computer’s terms.

There can be no doubt that people in their millions will continue to latch on to the phenomenon of computer gaming – which has and will continue to change just about everything in the way we work and play. And just as certain, people will spend longer and longer stretches in front of computers...

Core Group, Apple distributors for South Africa, released the prices for the highly anticipated New iPad. The prices aren’t as high as I initially expected when I initially posted the article on the launch date confirmation of the 3rd gen iPad.

With prices ranging from R4 999 to R8 299, I’m sure you can expect the New iPad to sell out pretty quickly! Here are the prices:

New iPad South Africa Launch Date Confirmed

Apple has confirmed that the new iPad will be available to purchase on our South African shores from the 27th of April 2012. In an image on the iPad page on the Apple South Africa Website, the launch date is confirmed at April 27th.

Since the new [3rd generation] iPad’s launch in the US on the 16th March 2012, stats show that the new iPad already take up about 11% of total iPad ownership. With roughly 3 million new iPad’s being sold already, I’m sure South African consumers will add to that figure!

Let’s talk prices

Although prices have not yet been confirmed, judging by the trend shown internationally and with the iPhone 4S South African prices too, I think it’s safe to say that we can expect the prices to be similar to that of the iPad 2 when it was initially launched in South Africa...

As a result, prices for the iPad 2 have dropped already. According to an article by Geeky Gadgets, prices of the iPad 2 were dropped at Best Buy, with the prices dropping by $50. But what does this mean for the iPad 2? Will it die out only a year after it’s launch? The likelihood: no...

An Apple A Day, Might Mean You Need Some Help!

I’ve been helping a few people recently with their Apple device and as a result, this morning, I decided to start a section to my blog dealing specifically with helping people with the issues that they may come across when using their iPhone’s, iPad’s or even in iTunes.

I guess it all started back in the Summer of ’69. No no, that’s a joke. It started about 2 years ago when I bought myself my first Apple product. The phone 32GB 3GS. The original plan was that I wanted to go overseas to the UK and while I was there, I would buy myself a new phone. So I started researching the options and phones available on the market. My dad, dear old dad, often sitting next to me and supposed to be working while I researched the idea, would look over my shoulder to see what I was up to...
