@AcerAfrica Announces New Head of Commercial - Vic Brits #SouthAfrica #SSA

Hi Friends, 

Acer Africa has announced its new appointment for Head of Commercial in the Sub-Saharan region. Vic Brits will lead the commercial sector of the business, as he aims to increase Acer’s market share in the Southern African Development Community [SADC] and in the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise [SME] market in South Africa, alongside Acer’s channel eco-system.

@AcerAfrica Announces New Head of Commercial - Vic Brits #SouthAfrica #SSA
Early career
Brits ‘first position in sales was selling high-tech Test & Measurement equipment used to analyze and maintain process control and IT systems. Brits say, “This role taught me to apply my technical knowledge in order for me to more effectively manage complex sales cycle while learning to better understand customer needs in real-world environments. This was my first introduction to customer-centric solutions.

Brits experienced a transformation early on in his fast-developing career shortly after Compaq merged with Digital Equipment Corporation [DEC] in 1998. The transition from X86 systems to Unix system sales, was a significant technology advancement, expanding both, his technical knowledge, as well as his ability to understand the complexities surrounding integrated systems.

Brits still attributes this time in his career as one of his highlights, next to relocating to Lagos for two years in the early 2000’s to set up a new subsidiary for HP in Nigeria, “This experience presented a definite challenge as I was exposed to different cultures and new business environments which laid a solid foundation for my future forays in cross-continental trade.” 
Values and mission
Brits say, “Being part of Acer, a globally established technology brand, has definitely encouraged and motivated me to apply my past experiences to further enhance what Acer has already instituted thus far.”

With this in mind, Brits believe that the most important factor in building a team is selecting people with the right attitude. Everything else can be taught, but the right attitude is an integral requirement for successful collaboration in a results-driven environment.

“To me, success is not only achieving business and personal objectives that I have set for myself but also being able to maintain a healthy work/life balance in the process,” he adds. Brits practice positivity throughout his professional and personal life and believe that positive thoughts lead to positive actions and progressive outcomes.

Acer Africa is delighted to welcome Brits to the local family and looks forward to seeing what the brand has to offer in the near future. For more information, follow Acer Africa on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Did You Know #UberEats Has These Cool Features? @Uber_RSA #SmartphoneApp

Hi Friends, 

Uber Eats has broken the common stereotype of what food delivery service is. With new useful features being introduced such as in-app messaging, which makes it convenient for eaters to communicate with their delivery partner seamlessly, they are able to deliver on their promises of selection, speed, and service.

In-app messaging is not the only feature to make ordering easier. Here are some of the other unique technology features built into the Uber Eats app:

Personalised recommendations - What do other eaters love? Uber Eats uses machine learning to help surface recommendations such as popular options in the surrounding area based on past orders, 30-minute delivery options, and details like time of day and delivery location.

Filter for the right food - Are you a vegetarian? The app allows eaters to select meal options that suit their lifestyle whether you are a vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free there is something for everyone. The app also allows eaters to look up restaurants according to specific criteria like speed, price, dish information and average prep time.

Thumbs up or thumbs down? - The same way Uber uses the five-star rating for driver-partners, the Uber Eats app provides rates of restaurants so eaters can see how others in their city rate their service. Eaters can also rate a specific meal with a thumbs up or thumbs down, which helps the restaurant to improve their experience.

Order customization - Not a fan of onions or tomatoes? No worries! The app allows eaters to let the restaurant know what ingredients not to include.

Did You Know #UberEats Has These Cool Features? @Uber_RSA

Customise the drop-off location - Stuck in a meeting? Eaters can provide specific instructions to delivery partners, for example, telling them to leave the food order at the reception.

Schedule orders - Do you have guests coming over and haven’t prepared food? No sweat, the app allows for eaters to plan ahead and make orders in advance. eaters are able to schedule an order anytime up to an hour before the desired delivery window–and as far as a week out.

Order tracking - Wondering what’s happening with your food? Eaters can select “track your order” in-app and watch in real time as their food is prepared, picked up, and delivered to them.

Simultaneously use Uber and Uber Eats - eaters can pop open the Uber Eats app while in their Uber to the office or home to order food before they arrive. This way eaters can find their food waiting for them when they arrive.

In-app support - Yes, mistakes can happen such as your food arriving cold. In this instance, eaters can use this feature to get a prompt response to their queries in the shortest time possible. The in-app support “Help” service can be accessed within the Uber Eats app by tapping on your profile icon on the bottom right of the screen, then tapping the help icon which will provide you options of issues you can select in order for it to resolve. This helps provide feedback to the restaurants to ensure they improve their service.

Uber Eats has transformed the way traditional restaurant work and are fostering experiments that offer an insight into the future of food delivery.

About Uber

Avengers: Infinity War Breaks Records #SouthAfrica @Disney @Marvel #AvengersInfinityWar

Hi Friends,

Marvel Studios film becomes the biggest opening day and weekend of all time in South Africa. Audiences across Africa assembled in cinemas this past weekend (April 27-29) to witness the unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making, delivering Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War not only to the top of the box office but also into the record books.

The nineteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe took in nearly R24.6 million at the South African Box Office, with over 287k attendances for its opening weekend, including Thursday night previews. This debut ranks as the biggest industry opening weekend ever in South African Box Office history. Friday 27 April also saw Avengers: Infinity War takes in over R8.4 million, the biggest industry opening day ever at the local box office. I was part of the Thursday 8:30pm show at Cinema 1 @SterKinekor, Mall of Africa and totally loved the movie. The people present didn't want the same to end as they wanted to see all the next part too. No one even moved their seats as they all waited to see the scenes after the End Credits rolled out. It's a long wait now for the closing part of the movie scheduled to release next year in 2019 May.
Avengers: Infinity War Breaks Records #SouthAfrica @Disney @Marvel #AvengersInfinityWar
Elsewhere on the continent, Avengers: Infinity War has become the biggest opening weekend of all time in West Africa with over N137.4 million. The film achieved the biggest April and second highest opening weekend (after Marvel Studios’ Black Panther) in East Africa with over kes 23.4 million.

Also in cinemas, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther continued its historic run at the South African Box Office with the film passing an unprecedented R105 million with nearly 1.4m attendances.

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther are now in cinemas. Go and check out both the movies at a cinema near you. 

About the Film:
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Trinh Tran, Jon Favreau, James Gunn and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.
Review: The movie is awesome if you fans of Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy as they collaborate a lot in this movie. Secondly, if you are fans of Dr. Strange and Iron Man and Hulk and his associate SpiderMan or Peter Parker as they fight it out together and are the main strategists of the game to be revealed in the next part of the movie. And if you are Black Panther fan with Captain America and Black Widow, you will be in amazement. Black Panther scenes really bring the theatre on the stand as people start hooting and applauding. I think BP is going to be one movie which will continue to top the charts all across Africa. Overall, it's a great movie in terms of graphics and storyline and I wanted it to never end and second part shall be released just next week.

12 Days To 5th Birthday Celebrations #5YearsofTheLifesWay #27Dec2017 #Pride

Hi Friends, 

I have told several stories of my life and how and why The Life's Way came into existence. There have been thousands of contests I participated and hundreds I have won to receive small to big prizes. I have been in the attitude of a winner and that's the only reason I could win so many things. But sometimes with the same comes pride which will take your attitude away and brings ego in. I have been part of this cycle numerous times and it fells bad to fall in this vicious trap again and again. Feelings and emotions are difficult to control unless you follow the law of detatchement. But it's not so easy to stay attached while being detatched.

There are so many things that are clouding my mind and stopping me to do and achieve what I wants to do for The Life's Way. I was reading through and came across an idea of Fair Exchange which means that you provide much more value than you receive. I have been following this principle initially during my first 2-3 years in my blog but then I set ego into the same and that's downward path for sure. Now after completing 5 years on my blog, I am thinking of just giving out great fair exchange without any ask but remember it's exchange not open season.
12 Days To 5th Birthday Celebrations #5YearsofTheLifesWay #27Dec2017 #Pride
Sometimes brands and PR agencies uses you to complete their targets but you get nothing in return. Now I am thinking why waste time sweating the small stuff of what they do to you but if your time is what they are wasting then don't look backwards and fire the bridge between till there is a fair exchange policy and understanding between you and the brand. It is a lot of time to keep running this blog and to share the content you want to display on your social media channels. I do whatever I am on with passion and commitment and will continue to do so but my focus will be my happiness and not someone else's.

I will totally give my end's worth despite whatever the other person tells or says and will do my own writing an edge by buying stuff and reviewing it or by lending them out. I am going minimalism way so I won't hoard stuff I don't want or don't like and give it away to my family members or friends whosoever wants it and values it. The next thing I want to save money is for the Apple Mac Book Pro as I am tired of my Dell XPS 15 laptop whose battery is now dead and too heavy to carry and work around wherever I want. Apple laptop will help to write stuff as and when I want and will give me around 5-6 hours of battery life on the go!

@HuaweiZA Reveals The Future of Smartphone AI Photography #HuaweiP20pro #SeeMooore

Hi Friends,

Huawei Consumer Business Group, South Africa unveiled their highly anticipated Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro, barely a week after the phones’ global launch in Paris. The P20 Series promises to usher in a new era of smartphone cameras that combine the very latest in smartphone technology with Leica Camera’s legendary expertise, driven by artificial intelligence.

“Huawei’s flagship Huawei P Series devices are known for their best-in-class camera, cutting-edge technology, and sophisticated design. Continuing this illustrious tradition, the new Huawei P20 and Huawei P20Pro fuse art with advanced mobile technology to offer a revolutionary, professional photography experience,” explains Likun Zhao, Vice President of Huawei Consumer Business Group South Africa.

Photography world-firsts powered by AI

The Huawei P20 Pro is equipped with the world’s first Leica triple camera with the highest total pixel count on a smartphone available in the market. This precise camera system comprises a 1 x 40MP RGB sensor, 1 x 20MP monochrome sensor, and 1 x 8MP sensor with a telephoto lens. This results in images with more light, greater zoom, and intricate detail, with the 40MP sensor on the Huawei P20 Pro providing up to 300 percent more detail compared to 12MP sensors.

The Huawei P20 features a Leica dual camera, with a 12MP RGB + 20MP monochrome camera setup. The 12MP sensor has a pixel size as high as 1.55 μm, significantly enhancing the Huawei P20’s capacity to capture photographs in low-light settings.

With their groundbreaking triple camera design, the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro achieved the highest score in the history of well-known camera review website DxOMark – a total score of 109 for the HUAWEI P20 Pro and a total score of 102 for the Huawei P20.
@HuaweiZA Reveals The Future of Smartphone AI Photography #HuaweiP20pro
The on-device AI in the Huawei P20 series also provides users with tools to turn even the most amateur photographer into a pro. Its real-time scene and object recognition technology can recognize more than 500 scenarios in 18 categories for users to choose the right skills at the right moment. Once an object or a scene is identified, the smartphone automatically makes adjustments to produce the best possible results. Using machine learning, the devices also understand the photography habits of users over time, making suggestions based on various actions.

An exquisite combination of art and technology for an immersive experience

The 5.8-inch screen Huawei P20 and 6.1-inch screen Huawei P20 Pro feature ultra-thin bezels and impressive screen-to-body ratios for better viewing experiences with more on-screen information. The Huawei FullView Display offers an immersive experience whether the user is gaming, watching videos, reading, or browsing the Internet. The Huawei FullView Display seamlessly blends with rounded edges, making the device comfortable to hold.

Commenting on the design of the Huawei P20 Series, Akhram Mohamed, Marketing Director, Huawei Consumer Business Group South Africa, says, “These devices come to life in a new vibrant gradient color, Twilight, in addition to Black and Midnight Blue. These signature colors are achieved by applying several layers of Non-conductive Vacuum Metalising (NCVM) optical coatings underneath the glass back, so light hitting the surface refracts and creates a gradual change in hue. On Twilight, for example, the gradient color fades layer by layer from a striking blue to vibrant purple.”

Leading AI computing and ultimate power performance

The Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro feature the powerful Kirin 970, which introduces the latest generation 12-core GPU. With the new HiAI mobile computing architecture, the on-device neural network processing unit (NPU) delivers AI performance that surpasses any CPU in AI-related tasks with 50 times the efficiency and 25 times the performance. In a benchmark image recognition test, Kirin 970 processed 2,000 images per minute. In addition, the chip’s machine learning capabilities mean that it has the potential to further improve its performance with extended use.

The Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro come pre-installed with EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1. Fully customizable with AI support and sophisticated security technology, EMUI 8.1 is set to become the new gold standard in smartphone operating systems.

“The Huawei P20 series features TÜV Safety Certified Huawei SuperCharge technology – one of the most prestigious battery certifications in the world. The devices feature 3,400 mAh and 4,000 mAh batteries, respectively, and support 4.5V/5A low-voltage fast charging, as well as intelligent power management. A 10-minute charge powers the battery to 20 percent, while a 30-minute charge powers the battery to 58 percent. The battery remains at a low temperature during fast charging to ensure safety,” says Zhao.
@HuaweiZA Reveals The Future of Smartphone AI Photography #HuaweiP20pro
Other notable features of the P20 series to look out for include:
  • The Huawei P20 Pro sports a revolutionary and highly-sensitive image sensor of 1/1.7 inches, 170 percent larger than its closest competitor, with a pixel size of 2 μm micrometers. The Huawei P20 has a pixel size of 1.55 μm. Its larger image sensor allows for bigger pixels, which in turn enables the device to capture more light and produce cleaner, higher-quality shots.
  • The Huawei P20 Pro is equipped with f/1.8, f/1.6 and f/2.4 wide aperture Leica lenses, while the Huawei P20 features f/1.8 and f/1.6 wide aperture Leica lenses.
  • The Huawei P20 Pro includes a brand new Leica telephoto (VARIO-SUMMILUX-H 1:1.6-2.4/27-80ASPH) lens for long-range photography of up to 3x optical, 10x digital zoom and 5x Hybrid Zoom. The Huawei P20 delivers 2x Hybrid Zoom.
  • The HUAWEI P20 Series uses Huawei AIS (AI Image Stabilisation) technology to recognize objects with an AI algorithm, then filters and corrects images as a result of shifts and blurs caused by an unsteady hand holding the device. Huawei AIS steadies handheld night shots for incredible long exposure images without a tripod.
  • The new devices also support six-axis stabilization and 960fps super slow motion, which is 4x higher than the standard 240fps and captures details that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Around the World in a Coffee Moment @Nespresso #LattissimaOne

Hi Friends,

Creating and enjoying your perfect cup of coffee is no longer a daily chore: it is a ritual that is ingrained in our lifestyle and our culture. While your coffee moment is a routine that people across the world have in common, different cultures and nationalities all have a unique way in which they create their coffees. Here are some of the wonderful ways that coffee is made and enjoyed around the world, all of which can be made using the versatile Nespresso Lattissima One.

Americans are famous for creating fancy coffees like the Macchiato, but this nation can be defined by their coffee namesake, the Americano: a single or double shot of espresso topped up with hot water.

South Africa
South Africans have a penchant for milky coffees, so their beverage of choice is a flat white. This is similar to a latte though smaller in volume and can be made by pouring microfoam (steamed milk) over a shot of espresso.

The frappé is a popular summer beverage in Greece, made by pouring an espresso over ice and topping it off with milk foam. Try this by using the Nespresso Intenso on Ice or Leggero on Ice, limited edition capsules created specifically to be enjoyed as a cold drink

The classic Italian coffee is an espresso-like Nespresso Roma - served with a slice of lemon, which is said to amplify the coffee’s sweeter notes.

Vietnamese people are renowned for a very sweet and a very strong brew called Cà phê đá. This is made by brewing intense, dark coffee directly into a cup of condensed milk and ice.
Around the World in a Coffee Moment @Nespresso #LattissimaOne
The Spaniards enjoy their coffee on the sweeter side. Cafe Bombon, as it is known, is created by stirring an equal amount of condensed milk into black coffee.

The French serve their coffee, Cafe au lait, with equal parts steamed milk and freshly brewed cup. Best served in a big cup for extra ooh la la.

German coffee is the very definition of decadent Pharisäer is made with espresso, rum, and sugar, and topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Nespresso Lattissima One : One Machine. Multiple Possibilities.

Wherever you are around the globe, try your hand at a variety of recipes and make your coffee and milk moments simple and delicious with the Nespresso Lattissima One. The luxurious Lattissima One provides the perfect convenient, compact and easy-to-use solution - your favorite coffee and milk drink is the touch of a button away. Simply fill the specially designed milk container to the stipulated level for your recipe, press the button and the machine will froth the fresh milk directly into your cup. Voila! Ready to enjoy, just the way you like it. The Nespresso Lattissima One (R3,250.00) is available in Mocha Brown or Silky White and can be purchased from all Nespresso boutiques and booths nationwide, or online at and through the Nespresso Club on 0800 63 777 3

The Digital Classroom: @Gemalto Helps #Casio to Bring #Education into the 21st century

Hi Friends, 
Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, can today reveal that it has partnered with Casio, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of consumer electronics products and business equipment solutions, to enable Casio to seamlessly bring digital education into the classroom and beyond.

This move will help Casio continue its leadership in classroom technology, fuelled by trends including increased use of connected devices, remote learning and the gamification of education, at the same time maximizing revenues and streamlining business operations. With the implementation of Gemalto Sentinel Entitlement Management System (EMS) and software license Rights Management System (RMS) solutions, Casio will have an enhanced understanding of how their software features are being used in the classroom.

Founded in 1957, Casio released the world’s first personal calculator and has gone on to produce a variety of products including calculators, watches, electronic dictionaries, electronic musical instruments, digital cameras and system equipment. Now, with Gemalto technology, the Tokyo headquartered manufacturer has been able to ensure its scientific calculators can be used by educators around the world who are moving away from traditional teaching methods and incorporating digital technologies into their classrooms.

“While the majority of our business revolves around hardware, we are seeing great growth opportunity in software business, and we needed to find a way to expand and enrich our own model to meet our customers’ needs,” said Tomoaki Satoh, General Manager, Product Planning Department, Consumer & Educational Solution Product Division for Casio. “Now, thanks to Gemalto’s advanced technology and insights, we’ve been able to address new markets, streamline our fulfillment process, improve efficiency, and reduce operational costs. We are looking forward to growing together through collaboration and cooperation.”
The Digital Classroom: @Gemalto Helps #Casio to Bring #Education into the 21st century
After implementing Gemalto Sentinel Entitlement Management System (EMS) and software license Rights Management System (RMS) solutions, Casio is now a successful hardware and software-enabled company. Utilising RMS to ensure control and visibility on how its education software is being used and EMS to maximize revenues and streamline business operations, Casio has cemented its future as a market leader in both education hardware and software.

Combining both solutions has enabled the company to tailor its offerings to different markets with one and three-year licenses, to fit in with student needs, as well as a 90-day trial version available. Sales will be boosted through the development of the website for electronic distribution and existing sales channels.

“The education sector is changing to a more digital focus and companies operating in this space need to change with it,” said Shlomo Weiss, senior vice president of Software Monetization at Gemalto. “Through this business transformation, our technology will enable Casio to meet the demands of its customers and offer an innovative service that can meet these emerging trends.”

Personalized Discovery: Listen to Music You Love with All-New Free on @SpotifySA #SpotifySouthAfrica

Hi Friends,
Music is the great connector. It unites us across markets, ages, backgrounds, languages, preferences, political leanings and income levels. At Spotify, they believe in music for everyone—and they are one step closer to making that a reality as they unveiled a new, improved, and more personalized way to discover music and listen to what you love on Spotify, for free. Spotify introduces its All-New Free service at a press conference in New York City. However, since the 13 March 2018 local launch, South Africans have been lucky enough to have experienced the All New Spotify Free service already!

Unlike many other streaming services, Spotify Free is an ongoing, ad-supported service, with no expiry date. You can listen for free forever, or if you choose can upgrade to the Premium service for offline listening and other benefits for R59.99 per month. With a new design on mobile, Free on Spotify includes a number of new features to make the listening experience more tailored to what you need to hear, now.

On-demand playlists
Spotify want all users to have more control over the listening experience so everyone can both discover new artists and return to old favorites. Fifteen new on-demand playlists offer the ability to pick and play any track within our curated lists—without skipping tracks or waiting on shuffle to bring up the music you love. These on-demand playlists will be unique to you, based on your musical tastes, and may include Spotify-curated playlists ranging from RapCaviar and Viva Latino to Ultimate Indie and Alternative R&B as well as personalized playlists like Discover Weekly, Release Radar, and Daily Mix.

More personalized 
With Spotify for free, users gain easy access to favorite songs and discovering new music is made simpler—and it’s personalized for you. When you sign up, we’ll ask you about the artists you love, and we’ll deliver curated playlists that match your musical taste and personalized playlists, like Daily Mix. These new playlists are easily accessible on the new Home screen, which is always being updated based on your listening activity. 
Personalized Discovery: Listen to Music You Love with All-New Free on @SpotifySA
Make Spotify yours 
Tell us which songs and artists you LIKE ♡ (or HIDE) as you listen. Tap the ♡ to quickly save songs to your Favorites playlist and tap the icon to hide songs you don’t want to hear. Recommendations will improve the more you listen and denote preferences. 

Create your own playlists 
Playlists are the key to creating a mood, whether it’s morning workout or weekend dance party, and now it’s even easier to create and edit a playlist with Spotify. Just give your playlist a name, search and preview specific tracks, and add to your playlist. As you save songs, we’ll continue to suggest more songs that we think you will like.
Play music using less mobile data with Data Saver: Music should be accessible to everyone, in every market—the love of a great song is what connects communities and cultures across the world. But many users of Spotify for free around the world aren’t able to enjoy music whenever they want, because of the volume of mobile data streaming typically uses. That's why we created Data Saver, a simple toggle switch that optimizes the listening experience to use less mobile data when listening to music. One of the benefits of the Spotify’s Data Saver mode is to offer automatic low bitrate streaming. Spotify’s default setting for data streaming in South Africa is 24kbps, perfect if you’re streaming when not on wifi. 
To enjoy music the way you want it, download the app via the Android or iOS app store or by heading to

Facebook: @Spotify |Twitter: @SpotifySA | Instagram: @spotify The new free experience will be available on iOS and Android and will be rolling out globally to all markets in the coming weeks. Happy Streaming!
