TalkCentral: Episode 64 – ‘Bank on it’

The conversation ranges from banking apps to in-flight Wi-Fi in our latest podcast.

And we’re back! This week, your hosts Duncan McLeod and Craig Wilson sit down for a midweek edition of TechCentral’s TalkCentral podcast. In the show this week, we talk about First National Bank’s new geo-payments facility and consider what it means for the other banks and chat about Craig’s Mango flight to test WirelessG’s in-flight Wi-Fi service.

Also in the show, we chat about the latest developments around the super-speedy Wasace cable, the untimely death of former communications minister Roy Padayachie and the troubles facing mobile operator 8ta.

In our new feature, Craig picks Tweetbot and Duncan chooses Band of the Day.

Why TechCentral?

We know that as a prospective advertiser, you are spoilt for choice. Our job is to demonstrate why TechCentral delivers the best return for your advertising spend.

TechCentral is South Africa’s online technology news leader. We don’t say that lightly. We believe we produce the country’s best and most insightful online tech news aimed at industry professionals and those interested in the fast-changing world of technology.

We provide news, reviews and comment, without fear or favour, that is of direct relevance to our fast-expanding audience. Proportionately, we provide the largest local audience of all technology-focused online publishers.

We do not constantly regurgitate press releases to draw in search engine traffic — we believe websites that do so are doing their readers and advertisers a disservice. Nor do we sell “editorial features”, offer advertising “press offices” or rely on online bulletin-board forums of questionable value to advertisers to bolster our traffic.

TechCentral, which is edited and written by award-winning South African journalists, cares about delivering top-quality content to draw in the business and consumer readers that are of most interest to technology advertisers.

We’d like the opportunity to demonstrate the value of directing a portion of your advertising budget to TechCentral, whether your company is in the technology field or not. Numerous opportunities exist for companies interested in reaching our audience of key decision-makers in South Africa’s dynamic information and communications technology sector. We offer packages that will deliver among the best returns on investment available in the online technology news space.
