I thought I was rid of Windows forever. Unfortunately not. A recent flooding of my flat resulted in my laptop being damaged and having to be sent in. The insurance company phoned me and told me that my computer was beyond repair and that I needed a new one.

My girlfriend bought the EA Games FIFA 12 for my birthday. I like sports sims. Except this is EA and I am a fan of Konami's Pro Evo franchise.

Customer service in South Africa stinks. If the epitome of it is Telkom with their hellish commitment to incompetence, where do the likes of Discovery Vitality rank? What about KFC? What about?

I try to be patient and understanding. It wasn't Thabo's fault that since July I had still receive my Discovery Vitality benefits card. That the broker that sold the product unreachable. That the lady who phoned me was about as useful as a R3 coin. Then Thabo phoned to promise me that my card would be delivered by last Friday. It will now be delivered this Friday - Discovery did me a favour by sending it overnight. Today is Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday are in between but this is overnight.

Social Media has morphed into something ugly over the last 12 months. Apart from some brands committing rape on the whole concept of "Social" media by shoving deals down your throat with no particular significance - you can get it if you walk into a store - governments have rocked up, determined to put the proverbial spanner in it.

Being a single, lazy South African male I tend to always look for the easiest way out. Shopping online is one of those things probably invented males because real shopping was akin to having your prostate checked by an arthritic proctologist.
