We always knew this day would come. The skies aflame, the raiders bursting through the barricades. We tried our best to stop them but Samsung’s releasing another Galaxy Note. And the official day has been set, for 7 August this year. Just as the prophecies foretold. If you count several leakers as prophets, that is.

We will definitely have a mini-ma...[Read More]
Hopefully you’ve laid on a substantial internet connection for gaming in general, and if you haven’t, you’ll want to before Friday (12 October) for Call of Duty: Black Ops IV — because you’ll be doing a lot of downloading. There’s a rather large Day One patch required in order to get online and start playing — and it’ll cost you about 50GB. And that&...[Read More]
We know… the full-fat Huawei Mate hasn’t even been announced yet but Huawei South Africa has confirmed that the Huawei Mate 20 Lite will be available locally from 5 October.
