I find most reviews about new products rather useless. They all have technical jargon talking about things that does not really matter but they do not tell you what the product really is like.
Most reviews on web sites are written by companies selling or promoting those same products, thus they must say something nice
In this post I will give you my review of the Blackberry Z10. In layman’s terms and in my best Free State English (you will understand this if you South African)
(Note: My first phone was a total dutt and I wrote the post below after I received it. The phone was later replaced with a new one which did not have any problems)
I could upgrade to a new contract in December 2012. I had a Blackberry Bold and because I liked the Blackberry I decided to wait until the Z10 launches before I upgrade.
On 1 March I was in the shop and signing my papers. Because it uses a smaller sim card MTN had to do a sim swop. The friendly staff in the shp said it should take about 5 minutes to do the sim swop.
I do not want to elaborate too much about MTN Head Office’s lack of service delivery, long story short, the 5 minute sim swop was eventually done 66 hours later. The staff in the shop tried their best but the idiots at head office just did not do their part.
This is not a blackberry fault, so let’s move on. Read more »
For some time now I have been frustrated with Acrobat Reader. It is a big slow program which likes to make huge updates. It uses more than 100 Mb of disc space.
I once caught while it was trying to do an automatic update to the tune of about 110 Mb. At the time I did not know about it and soon learned that the default setting on it is to do automatic updates. If you do not know to always go and switch off Acrobat’s automatic update feature then it will eat all your bandwidth.
I know in 1st world countries bandwidth is not a problem because you get it for free or pay virtually nothing for it, but in South Africa it is hell expensive and you cannot allow a program like Acrobat to steal your bandwidth. Read more »
We often see newspaper articles saying that online sales are rising. More and more people are buying goods online.
I think people are working all day, then sit in traffic and only get home after the shops closed. So they do not have time to visit the shops and that is why online shops make so much sense. You order your goods and it gets delivered at work or home.
If I look at what online shops in other countries have to offer I think online shopping in South Africa is at the tip of the iceberg . There are still lots of potential for us.
Can you really make money with an online shop?
It all depends on your setup and the product you are selling. If you run a professional service with good and fast delivery and the correct product with a big enough profit you will make money. Read more »
Here is a way to make money without having to pay any monthly or joining fees.
You make money by simply buying pre-paid airtime and selling it to your friends, colleagues or clients
There are two systems available:
1. Airtime4Profit.co.za is for the smaller retailer who sell more than R150.00 worth of airtime per month. This is a web based system. You can also use it on your smart phone. You simply buy the airtime on the web site and then sell it to your client. When you buy the airtime you have the option of viewing it on screen, printing it, email it or sms it to your client (sms at your cost). You get a flat rate of 5% discount on all the networks. This includes Vodacom, MTN, Cell C, Virgin Mobile, Telkom, Worldchat, Neotel, WorldCall, 8.ta, Bela, Eskom. You can also recharge our special low call cost handsets if you have one. Talk to us about it. (Note: there is no discount on ESKOM, it is for convenience only.)… Read more »

I often enjoy Gary Wilde’s newsletter and today I received one of those emails which I wish everybody in this world could read. What he says make so much sense and I hope more people will realise it.
If I had to count on my fingers the number of times someone has told me that their struggle with debt is not their fault, I would need a lot more fingers than I have! When people tell me this, I can see they really believe it… but is this true?
People get great satisfaction out of being praised or applauded for their successes and achievements in life, because it appeals to their need to be socially accepted, appreciated, admired and respected. As a result, people are very enthusiastic about taking the credit for their achievements and triumphs! Read more »
Be Motivated Today is still the best MLM I ever joined. My network keeps on growing month on month.
Below is an excerpt from their last newsletter. You will see that there are many others whose networks are also growing.
Congratulations to those who went to a higher level. For those who do not know, in Be Motivated Today you are only allowed to upgrade once your income is big enough so that the higher fee of the upgrade wont cost you anything out of your pocket. Thus you cannot “buy” a platinum membership because you have money to through around and wants to earn on more levels, you have to earn your higher status.
