It's time for a war on the digital chokers
Hear, hear. Every data supplier is promising great download speed, but what you receive is incredibly slow downloads, with constant line interruptions. All for a ridiculously high price.

Crash survivors get R22.2bn from RAF
So on average each claimant received R95 000. sounds excessive

Online dating services uses fake profiles
I suggest that iAfrica.com take note of this ruling as they are guilty of the exact same practices.

New logos for Primedia Broadcasting brands
Besides 702 and Cape Talk I think they are boring and bland and in some cases ridiculous and hard to read. How much research was really done?

The Blue Train... a trip down luxury lane
Just a pity it hardly works. My step brother from Switzerland has booked the CPT-PTA trip 5 times (over 5 years). Not because he loved it so much, but as the previous 4 trips were delayed by 24hrs or cancelled.

Bland cellphones make a brick look interesting
I agree. Modern phones are boring and bland

Can magazines survive?
I bought a copy of MH 3 months ago. Flipped through the pages and never went back to read it. First mag I had bought in years. Why pay for a syndicated article when it is bound to be free somewhere on the net.I used to buy/read at least 5+ mags a month. Now nothing. Same with Newspapers and shockingly TV. Everything is available on the Net and if I want entertainment I just switch on the the trusty radio (which has instant news) - and is also free.

Brand monogamy is a myth. Here's why
So simple. So true. This is why advertisers need to maintain their presence rather than seasonal bursts.

Times Media acquires the Future Group
How will this affect the independence of the MTN Radio Awards when TMG own 2 radio stations? Don't discount that business owners always make changes that suit themselves - i.e. Independent Newspaper Group.

Purge continues at Independent Media
It is sad that the purchase of Independent Media and this self-serving political agenda will just add more ammunition to the doom sayers. It is a pity that honest journalism is confused with hidden agendas and a 'third force'. The real ANC, which sadly passed away years ago, would (I believe) have welcomed the exposure of corruption in their ranks and got rid of those members. But then again dealing with corruption starts with the 'head of the household'.If business/people truly cared they would stop placing adverts and/or buying Independent papers

Investment in road infrastructure will unlock growth
Nice PR spin. We are going to upgrade the transport infrastructure and unlock economic growth....but hidden at the tail of the article they say they don't have money for the infrastructure.... and require funding models, i.e. eTolls, which reduce economic growth!

SABC viewers displeased with old content, repeats, news bias
I don't think the public truly cares about leadership issues at the SABC. What people want is good, current, entertainment - and non-biased news reporting. Most of what SABC broadcast is ancient and their news is just ANC propaganda.Another factor is that the majority of content is aimed at an audience least likely to pay for a TV licence.

Medicine advertising and the ASA
in the interests of full disclosure Saul you should state whether you represent (or don't represent) any medical company currently in dispute with the ASA.

In-depth training for traffic officers about tyres
So the businesses that will profit the most are patting themselves on the back for training 12 Traffic officials per month. I guess that cost them 0.0000001% of the profit they make.Reminds me of the Irish glass repair business that paid people to smash shop windows to drum up more business.
