What started as a thought about zebras and their stripes that I posted as a status on Facebook, has led to a major discovery of all time…

Just think about this for a minute…

Imagine zebra’s had to earn their stripes!

This statement has led the genius brain of a good friend of mine and I to a discovering something truly phenomenal!!

Some say that unicorns anorexic rhinos, while other believe unicorns are actually just horny, albino, zebras… But I beg to differ…..

What is this you might have asked?

Well, we have discovered the truth about Zebra / Unicorn culture and hierarchy. Basically, in a sense, their life is similar to the life of a butterfly. What happens is, a Zebra (in its early life) is actually a unicorn...

With the official South African launch for the new iPad only 3 days away, prices for the models have been released…

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...

1 Year and 1 day since the iPad 2 launch on and the build-up to the launch of the next generation iPad is increasing. What this new iPad will feature is still uncertain, however here are some of the rumours making the rounds and some features we can expect to see in the next generation iPad.

A launch date for the new iPad was set, after Apple sent out invitations that looked like the image below:

iPad 3 Launch Invite

When? 7 March 2012. Where? Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco.

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...

Gauteng e-Toll, Another Way We’ll Lose More Money

I got this email recently about the new e-toll systems that have come up around Gauteng…

These “e-toll” systems are means of charging road users on the N1, N3, N12 and R21 in the Gauteng area by being “tolled by means of electronic and automated methods, thereby eliminating the need to queue at toll plazas. This automated non-stop method of collecting toll is referred to as e-toll.” (Extract from the e-toll website)…

There are some stories I’ve heard about why these tolls were put up. How true they are I’m not sure, but basically the reason is because the South African government borrowed money to build the 2010 soccer stadiums and this is their way of getting the money to pay back whoever it was they borrowed the money from.

Whatever their idea is and reasoning behind putting up these tol...

If You’re Gullible, You Can Google!

These WhatsApp rumours are getting old! Don’t they remind you of all the chain messages and stories spread that MXit would close down, or delete your account if you didn’t forward a specific message to x amount of people? Or the time the Facebook was going to start charging for using it or whatever?? The messages are all the same with the word order changing!

It got me thinking and wondering just how gullible some people are? … Quick, look up, gullible is written on the roof! … Say “Football” really slowly and it sounds like you’re saying gullible!

I guess some people just take things at face-value and don’t find out if what they’re being told is actually true. Others are just… I don’t know…...

See How Easily You Can Get Your iPhone 4S To Work on Cell C

The title of this article is slightly sarcastic… But here is why:

I recently got my iPhone 4S. Very excited to set it up and get it working, I went to my service provider, got a mico-sim and went home to set it up. I put my micro-sim in and tried to set up the iPhone, only to hit a problem when iTunes tries to activate the phone, with the following error:

Could Not Activate iPhone

Could Not Activate iPhone

Frustrated, I started checking what the cause of the issue could be. I noticed that the sim-card didn’t seem to be active and the iPhone kept showing “Searching” where the signal should be displayed. Eventually I tried using a different micro-sim and used my father’s Vodacom micro-sim and the process went through and I was able to set up my new iPhone.

While I was syncing all my content to my iPhone, I put my Cel...
