My 2011 highlight: small, simple but packing a (valuable) punch.

My tech highlight of the year is comparatively simple, but one whose usefulness cannot be underestimated in desperate times.

Siri has Some Serious Sass

Posted by CerebralHelices in Siri , iPhone 4S

The general sense of meh the iPhone 4S was met with, in the wake of the anticipation of an iPhone 5 release promised to hold one novel draw card – that of Siri. And in the past few days, it (or rather, she) has proven to be a major attraction as it becomes increasingly apparent that intelligent agent Siri has some serious sass.

Solar Water Heaters and the change in Eskom Rebate Values

I was at the library today with a friend, and we got to chatting with a lady in the environment section about climate change, alternative forms of fuel, and in particular the natural forms of energy we could harness in a country such as ours (yes, thrilling stuff I know), when Lady-in-the-Library mentioned that she wanted to install a Solar Water Heater (SWH)  in her home sometime next month and asked if we could show her how to get the info on what to do – she felt it all to be a bit overwhelming. So on a library PC we showed her how to get to the Eskom site and explained about SWH requirements, the incentive offered for installing SWH systems and where she could find suppliers for them. We also suggested she bring the installation date forward, if possible, because of Eskoms recent plans to reduce rebate values. I figured I’d do a quick post on everything we told her on Solar Water Heater units and rebates, for anyone who may need the relevant info for installing a SWH system in their own homes.
