It’s been a very busy week in the tech industry, so busy, in fact that on the htxt.africast we had a difficult time deciding what to talk about.

One of the biggest stories without an doubt is Microsoft’s global rollout of its Windows 10 operating system. If you need some advice on how to do that manually, we have an easy guide available for you. In the podcast however, Clinton and Adam share their experiences with the upgrade process.

Earlier this week, room-renting service AirBnB officially unveiled its presence in South Africa by appointing Nicola D’Elia as the general manager for Africa and the Middle East. AirBnB CEO  Brian Chesky also made the trip to South Africa, and Clinton tells us all about it.

Another pressing issue was the reveal of the latest issue of New York Magazine. The reason it became a huge talking point, is that it featured 35 women on the cover who have all accused comedian Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct. Lungelo shares her views on it, and talks about the website being hacked as well.
