Proof that we are now living more of our lives online Vodacom have become the first cellphone network operator to start a dedicated customer service Twitter account. Their current account, @vodacom became the ad hoc customer service agent which in my opinion at least defeated the point of having a social media presence. The result is now you can address all your customer complaints to @vodacom111 and have dedicated customer service through Twitter.

I don't think you can call it Ubuntu's failure but @#$% 'em! I'm going to anyway. Open Office for all its functional beauty and it being free loses points in one regard.

There have been no confirmation from Heita as to whether they are in fact the new cellular service provider or if some people have just been getting carried away with all that speculative tomfoolery.

If you can make it past the adverts about people wanting accommodation you might find places that are pretty cool. The one problem is that everywhere in GP is dangerous and everyone is always warning you about that part of the city.

It seems we're gonna be flogging a dead horse here but I need to just say this out loud. For the record this has been annoying and I haven't joined forces with anyone.

This is a scenario that I am putting out there after thinking about yesterday's topic of tablet computers. If tablet computers are going to improve mobility reducing all the things we need to carry around, what does this mean for the simple cellular phone.

Call me a cynical bastard, but this latest Idols incident sounds like a scam to drive up viewership for a TV franchise which has being dieing slower than bomber jackets as a fashion trend in Durban.

Humans by and large are lazy. We invented the word practical to make sense of our laziness and to give people a reason to nod their heads in agreement. The invention of the PC was a revolutionary event in human history. Off course over the years the aim has been to reduce size and increase performance. I present to you the Notebook computer or Laptop.

Just a bit of a warning to those who still haven't RICA'd. Last week I came across a comment on a blog from someone who said they refused to RICA. Now forget what we think about the merits of the RICA legislation and what cunning plan our government has in place, the facts are that its in your interest to RICA your SIM before the cut-off which I understand to be 31 December 2010.

That OS Giken kat posted my thoughts about blog hit whores. I growl in his general direction. I looked at the My DL site on Sunday and I was actually quite taken aback by the quality of some blogs and the lame attempts at posts. Firstly let me just put this out there, it's called My Digital Life. The focus is on, wait for it, technology and the digital lifestyle. Take a look at some of the recent blog posts in the digital section. At a stretch of the imagination, a gun to the head and a half bottle of cheap vodka you could possibly see how it could be related to digital. The problem is that people just post without actually considering:
