WiBroniks Vs The Competition: Is This Better Than One-Fi And TelOne ADSL?

WiBroniks Vs The Competition: Is This Better Than One-Fi And TelOne ADSL?

Gizmos
ZOL recently announced a new wireless service that they have termed WiBroniks. The finer details of the service will be provided by ZOL at a later date but thus far they have provided details such as the data caps for these packages, the speeds and also the cost. From these details, we can begin to make comparisons with other products that are on the market and even though we can’t definitively recommend one internet package over the other -since we don’t know how much the WiBroniks router/modem will actually cost-, you will be able to have an idea of what package is best for you in terms of data. WiBroniks VS One-Fi The most comparable internet offering to what WiBroniks is offering is NetOne’s One-Fi. The price bands are similar and the data allocations are

If you've had some kind of fantasy about MacOS features on your iPad, Tim Cook is putting that dream to rest. Despite rumours of allowing developers to create apps that work on iOS and MacOS, the Apple chief told the Sydney Morning Herald they're two experiences that should be kept separate. SEE ALSO: Apple's next iPhones might be bigger and cheaper "We don't believe in sort of watering down one for the other. Both [The Mac and iPad] are incredible. One of the reasons that both of them are incredible is because we pushed them to do what they do well. And if you begin to merge the two ... you begin to make trade offs and compromises," Cook told the newspaper. "So maybe the company would be more efficient at the end of the day. But that's not what it's about. Yo
Apparently Steward Bank Is Not The First To Introduce A Kwenga-like Device

Apparently Steward Bank Is Not The First To Introduce A Kwenga-like Device

Gizmos
With all Steward Bank’s innovation drive, it may come as a surprise to know that Kwenga is not the first portable POS machine to grace Zimbabwe’s financial sector. Who then? CABS. CABS was the first to roll out portable POS machines. One of our readers on Techzim informed us that she saw a CABS portable POS machine similar to Steward Bank’s Kenga being used by a taxi driver. We then contacted CABS and they confirmed they had such a device. CABS said its portable POS device was first issued last year. As for now,CABS haven’t told us when exactly last year they introduced the device. Could this be the reason Steward Bank seemed to have rushed to launch Kwenga? CABS is yet to respond to us about the price of their device and the requirements to have it. Why has CABS been quite
Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: At the top of the smartphone game

Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: At the top of the smartphone game

Gizmos
With scores of small improvements, Samsung’s new Galaxy S9+ is an evolution rather than a whole new device. But as Hitesh Raj Bhagat explains, that’s hardly a bad thing. Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: At the top of the smartphone game It’s a game of leapfrog — a few months in the smartphone space translate into way better tech and ultimately, better phones for the people that can afford them. Right now, it’s Samsung turn with the brilliant new Galaxy S9. Samsung usually pulls out all the stops for the Galaxy and Note line. These devices get the innovations first, which then trickle down to lower prices over the course of a year. At first glance, there’s nothing wildly different when you compare the S9 to last year’s S8 — but that’s a good thing. Only when you put them both side by s

Apple HomePod, Amazon Echo, Google Home and more: We put 7 speakers to the test

Apple HomePod, Amazon Echo, Google Home and more: We put 7 speakers to the test

Gizmos
For the last four weeks, I've been living in an Orwellian nightmare. One in which I have to watch every word I say because "they" are always listening. And by "they", I mean Alexa, Siri and Google. It seemed like a good idea - get seven smart speakers and test them in a real house to see how they affected our listening habits and daily routine. At times, they've been pretty helpful. If we're running low on biscuits, one of us can bark, "Hey Siri, add Hob Nobs to the shopping list" and a reminder appears on our phones. During Storm Emma, Google kept me up-to-date on train cancellations, while our kids amused themselves for hours by asking Alexa what noise a cat makes. Thankfully, none of the devices started spontaneously laughing in the middle of the night - but they were all p...
Self-flying air taxi lifts off in New Zealand

Self-flying air taxi lifts off in New Zealand

Breaking News, Gizmos
A firm funded by Google founder Larry Page has unveiled an electric, self-flying air taxi that can travel at up to 180 km/h (110mph). It can do 100 km on a single charge, and it takes off and lands vertically. It will eventually be available to customers as a service "similar to an airline or a rideshare" said parent company Kitty Hawk on the Cora website. It operates using "self-flying software combined with human oversight", it added. The aircraft has been developed in New Zealand, where the government said it welcomed the project because of its environmental credentials. "We've got ambitious goals here in New Zealand, we want to get to net zero emissions by 2050 and that includes mobility," said Dr Megan Woods, minister for research, science and innovation, in a promotio...

The new beta build also includes an India-focused SMS categorisation feature to auto-sort SMS messages into categories. The flagship OnePlus smartphone is yet to receive a final Android Oreo update. However, the Chinese company has so far released three Open Beta versions of its new OxygenOS to set the ground for the new Android version. The very first change that OxygenOS Open Beta 3 brings to OnePlus 5T is the new navigation gestures that make the user experience similar to the button-less iPhone X. You just need to swipe up from the centre to go to the homescreen or swipe from the left to go back to last active screen. Similarly, a swipe-up-and-hold gesture opens the multitasking menu.
