Rise of a new age in retail has begun

Delivery times are an integral part of online shopping. Even in South Africa, retailers offer 24 hour (or even same day) delivery on many goods.

Is CSI a farce or impactful?

It's that time of the year again, when a lot of corporates go out to give Christmas parcels to the needy. They give away food parcels, clothes, toys and school uniforms, fix schools, donate funds and everything in between. They task their PR agencies to create publicity around this razzmatazz and the agency gets measured on how much publicity they got. And if the CEOs get to be interviewed on one or all the morning TV shows, they are sure as hell keeping the account for another year.
