ZATS: Ep 300 – ‘Original rockers’

Listen to this milestone episode of the long-running ZA Tech Show podcast.

Three hundred recordings later, the ZA Tech Show is still around. Joining Brett Haggard in this historic episode are TechCentral’s Duncan McLeod, ITWeb’s Jon Tullett and the Mail & Guardian’s Ben Kelly. They share news and opinions, and have a few laughs — just like the old days.

  • The Galaxy S5 (and the general state of smartphones today)
  • Nashua Mobile’s decision to close its doors
  • MTN’s lowered call rates
  • Microsoft Office Online for the Chrome Web Store
  • Johannesburg’s Wi-Fi plans

The team’s technology picks (and pick-ons) of the week are:

  • The Galaxy S5 (pick-on) and the Journey application framework (pick) from Jon
  • The Alcatel 2000 from Ben
  • The 11 000mAh Lenmar Helix portable back-up battery from Duncan
  • The ZA Tech Show (what else?) from Brett

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.
