My opinion on various things. Posts that are “highly opinionated” fall here.

Since 2017, Faiba 4G has the best bundle prices. Everyone else has re-priced their data bundles through the years, but no one has gotten to a point where they can confidently say they beat Faiba 4G's offers. Not even Telkom's Gbambe bundle. Which means, for a growing number of people, Faiba 4G remains the one network they can trust for data services.
An attempt to control who can use what technology and who can work with which partners instead of leaving it to the forces of supply and demand goes against the principles of an open ecosystem and is likely to slow down the whole innovation ecosystem.
Recently I got the ASUS Zenbook 14 for review. It is a beautiful and amazing device. I love it. I really do. It is well powered, well spec’d and fits well into very many people’s daily routine.
I don't think I can ever truly detach myself from Chrome on the phone. But I have for over 4 months now never used Chrome on my laptop. It used to be the first thing I'd install on my laptops, now I don't bother. I'm getting great battery life, the browser springs up to life in an instance, my extensions and plugins work well, and the scrolling is really smooth. The Google services that didn't seem to work well earlier on on Microsoft Edge also now work okay.
The great thing is I am still getting very long hours of use without charging. And everything seems to be working okay, I have no complaints.

When people are attempting to raise capital to start and maintain new businesses, the money comes from various sources like the ones we covered in the article ‘Founding a Tech Startup — Where is the Money Coming From?’ a few years back. These sources include loans, outside investors, crowdfunding initiatives, and so on. Usually, an influx of personal investment earnings isn’t on the list.
The NTSA is proposing a ban on cashless payments for the matatu industry in a bid to promote cashless payments that are safer easier to track, and more modern. However, without proper thinking, the move could create more problems.
If the content is right, the relevance is proven and compelling enough, people will reflect all the cost of the access, and they will go online and do what they need to do as long as it is profitable, rewarding and they can see the value in it," Goodluck said.
The cost of handsets has become a significant barrier to mobile Internet adoption and use
You cannot sell stuff with people locked-down in their houses, now can you? Hence the rush for online shopping and deliveries. Before you wonder where I am going with this article... no, I am not making fun of them. I am only wondering why it took a pandemic for companies and businesses to take online shopping seriously
Apple wants to control the smartphone market completely. They want for there to be a good iPhone at all price points and they're slowly going to make it happen.
Details of 20 million Aptoide app store users leaked on a hacking forum. Hacker claims to be in possession of 39 million Aptoide user records. Leaks 20 million today.
The new iPhone SE 2 checks very many boxes for a smartphone, and more. The inclusion of wireless charging, plus water resistance at this price point is a weird decision one could never imagine of Apple just a few years ago. How many phones for $399 do you know with such features?
Telkom launched T-Kash Mobile Money in March of 2018. Two years later, things aren't rosy at all. It was bound to fail, as it was a complete rip off of M-Pesa with no new offerings.
