For the Kindle users:
Kindle Unlimited is a Subscription Service for Books and Audiobooks
Amazon’s Kindle service is easily the leader in digital book sales, and
a few weeks ago, Amazon took it to the next level. The company has announced Kindle Unlimited, which offers access to hundreds of thousands of books, and thousands of audiobooks for $9.99 a month.
It is not available to you if you have a South African Amazon account but, this never stopped people from enjoying content in any case.
Mr Price just launched their own virtual mobile network.
The new Mr Price Mobile is a virtual network running on Cell C. As per the online I could obtain, the pricing does not look really attractive.
I do not know if there really is more space for yet another mobile provider in South Africa.
Calls are charged per second and 1 minute of chatter will cost you
r1.79. An sms will cost you r0.60 and 1 MB of data, Out of bundle, will cost you r0.99.
The only accessible devices that they have available is the Samsung Pocket Neo and the huawei media pad 7. Neither device is extraordinary.
The other devices are: Nokia Lumia 520 and the Nokia Asha 503.
If you are partially sighted, the Lumia 520 might be an interesting option.
For those of you on Cell C; they have recently launched a price plan that charges r0.50 per minutes for calls to all SA networks, including Telkom. These calls are billed per second.
This is currently the cheapest rate in South Africa. However, these rates are not permanent. So, make use of them whilst they’re around.
To change over, just dial 141 and follow the voice prompts. You can
also use the USSD code *147# to accomplish the same.
Many of you may, or may not, have heard of the new assistant on Microsoft’s Windows 8.1, Cortana.
She’s sort of the answer to Apple and Google’s assistants.
In this short podcast, I demonstrate a little what she sounds like. I used a Nokia Lumia 925 for the purposes of this demonstration.
