A Memoir - This Month Last Year - June 2016 www.thelifesway.com #1200BlogPost

Hi Guys,

June 2016 was the time when I was busy every weekend seeing some of the great places every weekend with my parents and family. We travelled far till Clarens to Pretoria to Walter Sisulu to Emperor's Palace to Soweto to Fordsburg. I have still not shared the images taken from those times but be rest assured the same will come live on my Instagram channel soon. 

1. A Memoir - This Month Last Year - June 2015 www.thelifesway.com #TheLifesWay - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/06/a-memoir-this-month-last-year-june-2015.html - Keep connecting the dots and you will understand how amazing are the wonders of life. I am grateful to the Almighty Lord for granting me more than I deserve and keep giving me new dreams to fulfill using the skills I have. Thanks once again!

2. A #Brand in Feature - @HuaweiZA #Huawei #SouthAfrica #TheLifesWay - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/06/a-brand-in-feature-huaweiza-huawei.html - I spent some long hours to write this piece of articles based on my experiences with the brand. I think they took it seriously and removed all the great gifts from the goodies bag they used to give in their smartphone launches. But I am still working towards and following up on getting a Leica dual lens smartphone sponsored from the brand but still no luck is on my side. 

3. A #Brand in Feature - @SamsungSA #Samsung #SouthAfrica #TheLifesWay - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/06/a-brand-in-feature-samsungsa-samsung.html - I have been the consistent supporter of the brand for free and have used my social media channels to extensively aware everyone about the products and services of Samsung. This year I was not invited to the launch of S8 and because of the same I didn't get the Galaxy S8 smartphone which was given to invitees to keep and use. Such a bad luck for not getting invited and loving the brand I felt for the first time. Anyway, it took me some time to write this article last year and it's a nice memorial article to the brand.

4. Product Review - BeoPlay H7 @BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlaySA #TheLifesWay - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/06/product-review-beoplay-h7-bangolufsensa.html - Bang and Olufsen really creates an audiophile's dream world with their niche products but the only problem is the price tag they have on those products. To me that problem was not an issue as I could use the review device for some time and then return the same thinking that one day it will come back in my life but it doesn't happen in real world. 

5. 3SIXTY Launches New Menu @MontecasinoZA #3SixtyNewMenu @TsogoSun - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/06/3sixty-launches-new-menu-montecasinoza.html - Montecasino has been my consistent supporter through thick and thin and I have also promoted all their brands from time to time. They might not call me to all the events because of the long list of influencers they have but I have covered their all activities on my social media channels. Thanks to the PR company and the brand for inviting me. 

6. 13 Ways To Help You #Snap Like A #PRO @LGMobileSA #LGPlayMore - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/06/13-ways-to-help-you-snap-like-pro.html - As I told you earlier also the camera on LG G5 is awesome and I really admired the device a lot. But on a different thought, my blog is covered with so many LG Electronics posts in May and June and today I came to know that they have blocked me on twitter is really sad. I am unable to digest this information but read the article, you might discover and learn something new. 

Do not blindly trust anyone and always ask for the benefits it will bring for all the associations you partake with all the brands. It's always best to set the expectations right from the start as you both go out winning and content. With my 1200th post, I vow that I will raise this question to all the brands with whom I am working currently and in future as to what benefits it holds for me and them?

A Memoir - This Month Last Year - May 2016 www.thelifesway.com #TheLifesWay

Hi Guys,

May is the time when a lot of products actually comes in the market and there is a sudden flood of review posts rising up across the internet across all social media channels. Last year, May 2016, I also welcomed my parents in the country and they really enjoyed their stay in Johannesburg. It was some great moments spent with them as I was meeting them after a very long time and we saw several new places in and around Johannesburg. 

1. Product Review - Huawei P8 @HuaweiZA #IgniteP8 - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/05/product-review-huawei-p8-huaweiza.html - The packaging of this smartphones is still the best I have ever seen and after this one they started doing Leica dual lenses in their cameras and I didn't got the chance to review any of the Leica capable units.  Within a year or so they have launched the P10 so how can think how fast Huawei is outgrowing the market in terms of it's market share. Whether I am part of the brand or not but I value the aggressiveness with which company is leaping forward. Kudos!

2. Product Review - LG G5 @LGMobileSA #LGG5PlayMore #Smartphone - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/05/product-review-lg-g5-lgmobilesa.html - I was part of the launch and also got the handset to review during April - May and the camera on this smartphone was awesome. I did win some Mall of Africa contests using LG G5 camera and uploaded a lot of photographs of the mall on my Instagram channel. This year, LG didn't invited me to the launch of LG G6 and today only I saw they have blocked me on their twitter channel. I wish they could have told me to unfollow or stop tweeting about their products etc and I would have simply obliged. Anyways, their LG G5 was awesome phone. 

A Memoir - This Month Last Year - May 2016 www.thelifesway.com #TheLifesWay
3. Product Review - Acer C205 LED #Projector @AcerAfrica #TheLifesWay - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/05/product-review-acer-c205-led-projector.html - This is something I would love to own as I immediately fell in love with this pocket but capable LED projector from the house of Acer Africa. I have never seen such cute projector and loved watching some movies with my family using this Acer C205. I am waiting for the price to fall on any online shopping websites for this product so that I can buy the same before my birthday. 

4. Product Review - BeoPlay H2 #Headphones @BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlaySA #TheLifesWay - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/05/product-review-beoplay-h2-headphones.html - I love headphones and the sound quality on Bang and Olufsen headsets is simply amazing. This comes in various colors and I really loved these red colored headsets. I have not bought any new headsets this year but ANC from Bang and Olufsen are the ones I would love to buy. 

5. A Memoir - This Month Last Year - May 2015 www.thelifesway.com - http://www.thelifesway.com/2016/05/a-memoir-this-month-last-year-may-2015.html - It gives me immense pleasure to always remember how the past has served me to take me to the place where I am now. I had this small idea of starting my blog and now it has crossed 1.5 Million pageviews since Dec 2012. I have worked for so many brands, so many are still with me, so many have left but it's all part of the #SocialMedia game. With changing people in the PR companies, your work also gets migrated to the another agencies as people keep their friends and acquaintances close in this industry. 

Looking forward to work on doing a lot of posts this year and take the pageviews to 2 Million by the end of  Dec 2017. 

Cheers!!!

#SmartPhones are Changing #SouthAfrica Consumers’ Lives @SamsungMobileSA

Hi Guys,

Smartphones have changed the lives of South African consumers and enabled them to be more connected than ever. Mobile devices are changing the way adverts are viewed, the audiences that are targeted and even how the media and publishing industry promotes the content.

The 2017 South Africa Mobile Report is based on a survey of nearly 5000 mobile internet users across the country. One insight in the smartphones stood head and shoulders above the rest: when it comes to the market’s favourite brand, Samsung is four times more popular with consumers than the closest competitor.

“Clearly, people recognise Samsung as a leader in the market and use our devices because they most closely match their needs as consumers. Samsung has always focused on innovation and as such the phone display and user interface are optimised to make browsing the internet easy as possible,” says Craige Fleischer, Director Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa.

The importance of mobile connectivity to consumers is highlighted by the fact that some 78% of those surveyed indicated that the last time they accessed the Internet via their phone was just the day before. In addition, 35% reach for their cell phone to browse the internet first thing in the morning and a further 36% browse on their phone while also watching TV. Some 13% even admitted to connecting while in the bathroom.
#SmartPhones are Changing #SouthAfrica Consumers’ Lives @SamsungMobileSA
“The research shows that mobile has well and truly become a daily part of our lives. We rely on them more than we realise. Businesses marketing to their consumers need to keep this in mind when developing their strategies.” says Greg Mason, Regional Lead at Effective Measure Sub Saharan Africa.

One of the most interesting statistics was the increasing number of South Africans who are happy using their phone to purchase items. Everything from airtime (47%) to apps (25%), books (11%) and concert or event tickets (10%) has been purchased by users in the past year, with a total of two thirds of consumers admitting to having purchased something using their phone.

“The lives of South African consumers are clearly changing as they become more connected than ever. Recognising this, Samsung continues to innovate and deliver better and more sophisticated devices to its users, to enable them to access and enjoy the Internet in new and exciting ways,” concludes Fleischer.

Hi Guys,
 
Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, announced the launch of the Logitech® G433 7.1 Gaming Headset and the Logitech® G233 Prodigy Gaming Headset. These headsets feature advanced gaming technologies, including patent-pending Pro-G™ audio drivers, for superior audio performance, in a lightweight, extremely comfortable fit designed to go with you beyond gaming sessions.

“If you’re like me and game a lot, having an awesome gaming headset is critical,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech G. “And if you love music then having a great pair of headphones is also important. Now you can have one headset that delivers the best of both worlds. You can move seamlessly from your PC to your console, and because of the beautiful design, Pro-G audio drivers, and removable boom mic, you can step outside and wear them on the go and have a headset that fits your lifestyle.”

High-Quality Audio
Both headsets feature advanced Pro-G drivers made with hybrid mesh materials that provide high-quality audio. The drivers deliver clear highs and lows with minimal distortion. Logitech G optimized the sound quality for analogue reproduction and digital USB output, so the sound profile is accurate on any source.

Additionally, the Logitech G433 uses DTS Headphone:X® 7.1 for the latest in high fidelity surround sound. Highly realistic DTS Headphone:X technology accurately replicates 7.1 speaker placement and audio positioning, so you can hear in-game environmental effects and positional audio that game designers intend you to hear, such as how far away enemies are and which direction they are coming from. You can also tune the volume levels for each of the seven audio channels.
Logitech® G233 Prodigy Gaming Headset

Comfortable, Athlete-Inspired Design

@LogitechG Launches New #POWERPLAY Charging System And #LIGHTSPEED Technology

Hi Guys,

After more than four years of R&D, Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, announced the launch of two technologies that make the dream of high performance wireless gaming a reality. Logitech G POWERPLAYTM is the world’s first wireless charging system for gaming mice providing continuous charging while both playing games and at rest - completely eliminating the need to dock or park your mouse to recharge. The second innovation is Logitech G LIGHTSPEED technology, an end-to-end system optimization built on decades of wireless development experience that provides unrivalled connectivity and power performance. Compatible with the POWERPLAY wireless charging system, Logitech G also introduced two new flagship gaming mice, the new Logitech® G903 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse and Logitech® G703 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mouse.
@LogitechG Launches New POWERPLAY Charging System And LIGHTSPEED Technology
Logitech G903 Mice
“For decades, we’ve pioneered development in wireless gaming, and our new POWERPLAY and LIGHTSPEED wireless technologies continue this commitment to wireless superiority,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech G. “With POWERPLAY, LIGHTSPEED and our new G903 and G703 mice, you’ll get unbeatable precision, lag-free performance and infinite power, which gives gamers the highest-quality experience.”

Logitech G LIGHTSPEED Wireless Technology
Trusted by gaming enthusiasts and esports professionals worldwide, LIGHTSPEED wireless technology can be the difference between winning it all or walking away with nothing. Featuring a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization, LIGHTSPEED delivers competition-level responsiveness at speeds faster than many competitive wired gaming mice. Decades of wireless engineering experience mean LIGHTSPEED has wireless signal strength up to 16x (12dB) higher than the competition and a unique Frequency Agility Mechanism that automatically avoids problematic interference, ensuring smooth and consistent performance.

LIGHTSPEED underpins both the POWERPLAY wireless charging system and G903 and G703 gaming mice, meaning these devices can pair directly with the POWERPLAY's integrated LIGHTSPEED wireless receiver for optimal signal strength and the convenience of charging and data over a single USB cable.

POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System
POWERPLAY reinvents the possibilities of wireless charging. A departure from existing wireless charging standards, which require the charging device to sit idle in one specific area to charge, POWERPLAY was designed from the ground up to deliver uninterrupted charging over its mousing surface - even while the mouse is in play. The wireless charging system uses a groundbreaking application of electromagnetic resonance that creates an energy field above POWERPLAY's 275 x 320mm surface to deliver wireless power without interfering with the precise tracking and data transmission of high-performance gaming mice.

The POWERPLAY energy field is captured and transformed into charging current by the POWERCORE™ module, which attaches magnetically to compatible wireless gaming mice, including the Logitech G903 and G703.
@LogitechG Launches New POWERPLAY Charging System And LIGHTSPEED Technology
Logitech G703 Mice
Logitech® G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED™ Wireless Gaming Mice
The latest in Logitech G's long history of high performance gaming mice, both the G903 and G703 deliver on the brand's expectation of superior performance and unparalleled quality while also adding new LIGHTSPEED technology. Additional compatibility with the POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System provides untethered play, unlimited charging, and unmatched performance. Features of the G903 and G703 include:

Pixel-Precise Sensor: The Logitech G903 and G703 mice come equipped with the PMW3366 optical sensor, widely regarded by esports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market. Thanks to years of innovations, the PMW3366 has zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The resulting experience is incredible tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness, even at speeds over 400 IPS.
Advanced Mechanical Button Tensioning: Precisely-tensioned metal springs and exclusive mechanical pivot hinges on G903 keep the primary left and right mouse buttons poised to trigger. This technology delivers an exceptionally clean and crisp button feel, response, and consistency. Logitech G improved on the design and boosted button durability up to 2.5x with 50 million click switches.
Supreme Comfort and Quality: Both mice deliver long-lasting comfort. The Logitech G903 features a configurable button layout and ambidextrous design that allows for left- or right-handed use and works with nearly any mouse grip style, including palm, claw and fingertip grips. The Logitech G703 features a lightweight, ergonomically designed body that was made to mold to your hand. Rubber grips on the left and right sides offer added control. You can use the mice directly out-of-the-box, or you can program the buttons with custom game commands using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).

Availability of the POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System, the G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED wireless gaming mice to be confirmed. For more information please visit website, blog or connect on Facebook or @LogitechG.

@GemaltoSecurity Brings #SafeNet Trusted To Secure Access to Cloud Applications


Hi Guys,

Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, announced the launch of SafeNet Trusted Access, an access management and identity protection service, to secure cloud and on premise applications. Powered by a robust risk-based analytics engine, Gemalto’s solution delivers integrated Cloud Single-Sign-On (SSO) and Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) capabilities so companies can easily implement secure, conditional access and additional authentication levels when outlined in the policy engine.

According to recent research, enterprises in 2017 are expected to utilize an average of 17 cloud applications to support their IT, operations and business strategies. With SafeNet Trusted Access a user can log on once to access all approved applications, as defined by the policy for that application.
@GemaltoSecurity Brings #SafeNet Trusted To Secure Access to Cloud Applications
(Gemalto will host a webinar on June 28 at 11:00am ET titled “Getting Rid of Risky Business: How contextual information is securing cloud app access”. Click here to register.)

“The adoption of cloud apps is fast becoming mainstream. Yet IT teams lag in their ability to effectively manage and restrict access to these apps and offer their employees the convenience they expect. With SafeNet Trusted Access, IT Managers can set scenario-based policies linked to associated risk factors and implement step up authentication for a particular application or group of users, depending on the level of sensitivity and role,” said Neil Cosser, Identity and Data Protection Manager for Africa at Gemalto. “We built this newest addition on the expertise and success of the award winning SafeNet Authentication Service to support our customers as they migrate their enterprise workflows into the cloud. We designed this next-generation MFA and Cloud SSO platform with the goal of making it easier for IT to align security with business processes.”

“Historically, controlling access to resources has been ‘red-light/green-light’ or binary – you’re either allowed in or you’re not, and once they are in, most SSO offerings are blind to anything a user does once they are granted. By combining analytics with IAM, SafeNet Trusted Access provides companies with the ability to identify anomalies in access patterns that could indicate risk and help prevent data breaches,” said Garrett Bekker, Principal Analyst at 451 Research. “
Neil Cosser - Identity and Data Protection Manager for Africa at Gemalto

Gemalto’s SafeNet Trusted Access key features include:
  • Scalability- The solution features built-in integration templates making it easy for companies to add new and existing cloud applications as needed
  • Supports long-term IAM strategy – Companies benefit from a broad range of Gemalto’s stronger authentication methods and form factors such as one-time-passwords and biometrics
  • Risk-based analytics and detailed access policies– Scenario-based policies define access controls, assess whether a login attempt is secure, apply the appropriate level of authentication and require additional security measures when necessary
  • Visibility – Provides the right level of visibility into workforce identity and access activities & events
  • Centralized access management– A single pane of glass gives visibility into all access events streamlining security audits, tracking and help desk requests like password resets
  • Regulatory compliance- IT can ensure compliance with relevant legislation and standards using the solution’s data driven insights on user behavior, access events and policy enforcement.
