It’s been five months since we did this, but back by popular demand, Brettski and Steven Ambrose get together to speak about WeChat Wallet, the state of the local Internet and their favourite products of the year.

The topic list includes:

  • Mobile Money and the Launch of WeChat Wallet;
  • The general pervasiveness of connectivity in the world (and SA);
  • The international bandwidth glut in SA
  • Steven’s rant about cellular call quality; and
  • Ericsson NuVu.
Our technology picks of the past five months are:
  • Steven picks the iPhone 6s, Galaxy Note 5, Lenovo YogaTab 3 Pro, Snapseed, LG G4 range; and
  • Brettski picks Apple Watch and Discovery app ecosystem.
