Internet giant, Google has confirmed that it will be extending its super fast fibre broadband services to Austin, Texas, where residents will be enjoying internet speeds of one gigabyte per second by 2014.
Google announced yesterday that their TV white spaces (unused channels in a TV spectrum) trial will provide broadband connectivity to 10 schools in and around Cape Town. The trial will demonstrate the potential of white spaces as a platform to deliver faster internet connectivity to the developing world, if it comes off. Broadcasters, however are [...]
Oh boy. Oh boy, just breathe. A new armband uses the electrical activity in your muscles to let you wirelessly control digital devices. The new Myo wristband runs on electromyography techniques. Electric pulses that surge throughout your body when you move your muscles are sensed by the Myo, which sends corresponding commands to linked devices. Thalmic Labs co-founder [...]
A world of children’s entertainment, music events and shopping await Capetonians and visitors to the Mother City with the V&A Waterfront’s bumper summer line-up.
Ever dreamt of vicariously playing instruments with a large, black bodybuilder’s muscles? Well dream no more! Thanks to Old Spice and Terry Crews that day has come, we present to you: “Muscle Music”.
Grammy Award winning Band “Switchfoot” will perform in South Africa for the first time in August, and 2oceansVibe Radio is proud to announce we’re on board as a partner! Switchfoot are all-round nice guys who love to surf, have sold millions of records, and are known for their incredible energetic live performances during their sold-out [...]
COMPETITION NOW CLOSED! Congratulations to ROWAN, who has pledged to match the R5 000 prize money, and treat his father, and his father’s soul mate to a night’s stay at the gorgeous Westcliff Hotel, in Johannesburg. You’re aware that Father’s Day is next Sunday? Yes, next Sunday. That’s nine days from now, my friends. Nine [...]
COMPETITION CLOSED Over the last few weeks, we’ve discussed fatherhood, and what it meant to the men of yore. My father, for example, was the keyboardist in McCully Workshop, a band famous for regularly melting faces (and hearts) in the greater South African geographical area. You think I can get a man like that a [...]
Now I know a lot of you will put on your Inspector Clouseau hats at this point, noting that the lid of the jar is completely clean. From there you would deduce that the jar is new. But that is where you would be wrong. Please, gather around… I will have you know that the jar [...]
I was reclining on the deck of the Safehouse the other day, enjoying one of these secret Winter/Summer days that Capetonians tend to keep to themselves when describing our home, for fear of coming across as braggards, taking in the sunset. The ol’ iPod threw out McCully Workshop’s The Buccaneer, which I’ve been known to [...]
For the latest issue of The Cricketer, they asked a large panel of cricket journalists, broadcasters, photographers and fans which cricket pitch is the best to watch Test cricket at. And according to the experts Newlands takes a close second place, only behind Lord’s, the symbolic home of the game. See the rest of the Top 10 inside.
I’ve wanted Bluetooth headphones ever since Rob Stokes raved about his pair, during our lunch at the Mount Nelson. He uses them to ‘get in the zone,’ whilst handling emails and planning his next barefoot run – whatever that is. I did some shopping around and fear that the ones on offer were a bit [...]
It’s common knowledge that I am an only child, born under a rainbow; and with that predisposition comes a unique set of experiences that other children with siblings may not have experienced. That’s at least what I thought, before I started chatting about this issue of Dove soap to my buddies last weekend. It turns [...]
I’m sure there is a valid reason why Cape Town Panel Beaters used to only be found a minimum of 20km from where I live. It always used to be Diep River, or Paarden Eiland or Epping or Maitland. Why were they never closer to me? Not that it matters – because times have changed [...]
On March 9 2012, the Cape Argus officially changed its format and added a morning edition. The broadsheet is now only available in a size at about half of what it used to be, and the layout has been given a visually stimulating modernisation. We caught up with executive editor, Gasant Abarder, to find out more.
Very cool to see Le Creuset have opened a store at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. I already have a set of the coffee mugs, which we received as a gift (thanks Karen!) and I strongly urge you to review their kitchenwear range. Everyone from the Mount Nelson with their serving dishes at the Oasis [...]
Sunglass Hut deserve a round of applause, as they have started stocking the original Oakley Frogskins. God, they are gorgeous. They played prop through one of the most exciting times of my life. And many other 30+ readers out there. I remember rocking a few pairs in the 90s, most of them multi-coloured. I remember [...]
I don’t know why I didn’t just go online to yuppiechef when I realised that I needed a microwave oven plastic cover – that thing that goes over the plate. You know, the one that helps with food splatter and enhances cooking. Instead I made the error of going to Banks in the Cape Quarter. Pavlov’s [...]
Dove are ready to announce their shiny new brand ambassador for the Dove Men+Care range. We’ve kept a sharp eye on this one. I mean, we all love a clean, well groomed guy, but a brand ambassador for a minimal fuss, absolutely-does-the-job product like Dove Men+Care needs to be manly, too, you know? So who [...]
We had heard rumours about the virtual forest that had been created at Merchants On Long, for the launch of South Africa’s most sought-after high-end handbag range, Okapi. But we didn’t quite grasp the level of amazement that would beset us as we entered. This shop simply must be seen to be believed. Forming part [...]
There is nary a soul in the greater Cape Town metropolitan who has not indulged in a late night prego roll/steak pie/box of Grandpa/Yogi Sip/SteriStumpi/R15 litre of milk while filling up their car at the Engen On Orange, AKA Club Orange. My personal preference is the 125g bag of Woolworths Fruit Pastilles. It is a [...]
They’re surprisingly hard to find – the Salt & Vinegar flavour of Robertson spices. This, even though it is the best thing to put on popcorn at home. I used to go to the cinema just to experience popcorn with salt & vinegar flavouring. Because that was the only place I could find it. But [...]
And when I say “under” 500 bucks, I mean just under R500. ie. R499. Which is a helluva lot better than the price they normally sell for, which is R800. That means this deal comes with a discount of nearly 40%. What an epic start to the year! That’s basically what we do for you, [...]
