  • Change your master password if you are a LastPass user

    If you are, like me, a LastPass user then you need to change your master password. LastPass picked up on some suspicious activity in its logs and requires all users to change their master passwords as a precaution: We noticed an issue yesterday and wanted to alert you to it.

  • HTC.vom

    I made a little oops when I tried to browse to the HTC website. I only realised what I typed afterwards. It seems oddly appropriate and a little funny. And with that, I can fairly safely say I will never be invited to another HTC launch event … ever! It is still funny though.

    I received this cool business card holder from Europcar SA the other day when Zahava Stein, Europcar SA‘s General Manager for Marketing, dropped off a platinum card for me (thanks Zavi).

Unfortunately, shopping at this store is a pretty unpleasant experience. In the vernacular, it sucks. I had a […]

  • Feedback from Dis-Chem after our incident

    I just received a call from Stan (I forgot his last name), a Dis-Chem director, after some intervention by Kerry Haggard who had her own experience with the Norwood Dis-Chem last week. The call was to find out about our terrible experience at the same Dis-Chem store a little while ago. I explained what happened […]
