The good comes with the bad
[Gill Moodie] Like Paris Hilton, I had occasion to frequent a South African court house this past week. It might have been a simpler affair if I too had been nicked on the wrong side of a dagga cloud but, alas, I was paying a traffic fine for a lapsed car-licence disc.

[WWDC] Keynote thoughts from an African perspective
[Anice Hassim] SAN FRANCISCO: The mythical iPhone killer arrived today, but it was from Apple.
