Mobile Data (Daylight) Robbery

Have you recently lost your MTN mobile data?

MyBroadBand reported posted no-nonsense test and proof of data loss and it’s clear our mobile operators have a lot of explaining to do.

We’re with Cell C and haven’t experienced much the same (not noticeable at least), but what we are finding is that when you have loads of minutes on your contract and you try and phone an 086 number, you’re not able to without loading additional minutes on our contract.

I mean seriously?  I have 1000+ minutes and I can’t phone an 086 number. It’s just clear everyone is now mostly using their phones to use apps and browse the net rather than actually phoning anyone.

It seems you just can’t win with mobile service providers in South Africa.

Apparently Telkom Mobile doesn’t lose your data, but their network coverage is not great at all.

Have you lost mobile data?

Tell us more in the comments about your experiences…

Solar Roads for South Africa

Imagine roads that don’t need painted lines. Imagine roads that generates electricity (this is already blowing my mind). Imagine that you only have to replace small sections if it becomes defective or breaks.

Welcome to solar roads

This is one genius invention in my opinion. We have so much sun, and roads in South Africa that this would be the perfect way to mitigate energy concerns.

Only problem? Tenders… Just hearing that word makes me cringe about how much money is being wasted away in our government.

I wonder how long it’ll be until a large oil conglomerate buys the patents and shelves it for the foreseeable future…

Are bloggers the new trend setters?

It’s funny how being in the digital industry has opened my eyes to what’s possible in the realm of blogging. Bloggers are increasingly more influential as they focus on new niches in the industry and it can only benefit the  consumer.

Why are bloggers trend setters?

  • They can build up a following in certain niche markets.
  • Good content matters to advertisers as it creates better context for influential advertising/recommendation.
  • Product reviews have more influence as bloggers are more ‘accessible’ (normal people) and this type of content is seen as friends’ recommendations.
  • Bloggers (hopefully) give you their honest opinion / reviews about products and services.
  • Bloggers are connected to the ‘guy/girl in the street’
  • Bloggers get access to new products and services ahead of anyone else (as they build up reputation). This loop amplifies as they grow their following / traffic and get invited to more activation events. It creates exclusivity that increases readership.
  • They write not because they have to, but because they want to. While this is an idealist’s view, I think it’s true for most high profile bloggers out there.
