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

I have this submissions page where you can email me posts on Africa/Tech/Business etc but people are emailing me questions. I didn't think I'd have to write such a post ever but here we are. I have to answer...
I read this story by ADAM NOSSITER on the BBC on the situation in Sierra Leone and was very saddened that the country continues to helplessly lose lives. It is as if day by day, the Ebola situation is...
I may be a student and you’re allowed to argue that I don't know quite enough. But what in the world is wrong with products labelled “Made in Kenya”?   My bathroom is fully international. The plastic, the tiles, the ceiling…...
Samsung have released the Galaxy Note 4 and it is quite something. It has thoroughly been reviewed and there are quite a lot of hands-on videos on YouTube already. I won't talk about it just yet. What has however...
We probably won't be in good terms with some iSheep after this post. iPhones are overrated. Apple give you the same thing over and over again and you still but it. You still fall for it. One thing I personally...

If you remember, I made this post about the Galaxy Trend on the 2nd Day of this year where I said it was going to be a trend like its name. And I can confidently say, 6 months and...
I don't know what got in to Foursquare. I don't think the management was thinking right when making all the funny and stupid decisions they've made this year. The Foursquare we knew is dead. These are my last respects. You...
I once tried to write a post on the best LG phones under 20k in Kenya when it came to my realisation that I actually don't know LG phones. I mean, I have written about the LG G3 here...
Udacity and Google have teamed up to make a free course in Android Development available to all. The course is made complete with videos, quizzes, course materials and forums.   The course, 'Developing Android Apps: Android Fundamentals', provides you with everything...
If you're a developer you probably heard of if not participated in the Appwiz Challenge by Safaricom. If you didn't or probably participated and won nothing, here's a second chance for you. Safaricom have announced the 2nd Appwiz Challenge.   The...
Update: This is an old post from 25th June. Google has confirmed the name of Android 5.0 as Lollipop. Here is the link. Read on though Google is set to be revealing a new version of Android at its I/O later today. Last...
Exactly 5 years ago the King of Pop passed on just before the ‘This is It’ concert which could easily have been the greatest concert on Earth, ever. And who hasn’t heard of Michael in the past few years? He...
