    Digital Innovation is essential. The quality of the App and usability is everything. I have not visited a standard bank branch in over two years. Everything, even opening a saving account or changing limits can be done on your phone. Human interaction is becoming less and less valuable.

      Confession #10: Tribalists and Racists, same whatsapp group.

      Discrimination is discrimination. Believing that someone is ‘less than’ because of their culture, language or origin is as bad as being racist. I am so sick and tired of black people complaining about racism yet behaving so discriminatory themselves. Fighting for equality, yet thinking…[Read more]

      • Thirdeye, what you say is so on point except that you sound like we need white people approval to be. Your point regarding white seem to suggest that white people are supreme and therefore exemplary in everyway – however the truth of the matter is that they are divided as any other racial group. Our social challenges are the same challenges they…

      • @kwena, Well, that may be YOUR interpretation of my confession but that is not what I am saying at all. I do not think anyone who is discriminatory is supreme, white, black, asian, coloured. Discrimination is ignorance or in its worst form, stupidity. The point I am making is that we as black people complain about racism and campaign for equality,…

      Because their “king” – in this case queen, is there in England, where they came from. We will not accept cultural appropriation on African soil.

        Surely he deserves an honorary degree at this stage of the game. 20 years! Wow, I blame the system.

          Confession #9: Positivity is essential to your advancement in life.
          Positivity does not mean that you will constantly be happy, it is not forcing yourself to smile when you feel down. Positivity is getting through each day, one by one, and being kind to yourself as you do so.

          @didi @theguy I am not referring to people being victims of their environment. The environment exists from birth, you can not decide on how your environment will be. You do not decide how your parents are, the language you speak, the culture you are born into, the preschool you go to, the land you were born on, ect. Even when you become more aware…

          To what extent do you believe we are a product of our environment?

          • 50%
            • No one is a victim, we all make choices. The environment will always pull you in any direction but when you let it you become its product.
              • Scary! I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me. Don’t stop being yourself or worry that people won’t like you simply because you didn’t amalgamate with the environment. You get one life, so live it on your terms.

                • Yoh I respect you but I must emphasize the fact that I dont agree with your sentiment- and that’s okay.

                  In the end we all make a choice. I live in Soweto, in over all the 20 years I’ve lived I’ve seen thousands of people. And even so, the one person I chose to model my behaviour after was my uncle who lives 50KM away from me. No one influenced…

                • @theguy @thirdeye you’re both wrong. Choice is often an illusion. You have the freedom of choice but from limited options. Environment impacts you only insofar as your genes are reactive to it. To assume that nature completely controls us is to assume that humans are inherently unable to overcome any environmental pressure and should therefore not…

                • Choice cant be an illusion if we can experience consequences for our actions. We dont choose how we are born, when, where we grow up. But we make micro and macro decisions all the time. In fact, your first choice was to try when you realised that the world wasnt an extension of you and so you threw tantrums as a child. We all make decisions,…

                “Morality is not the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but of how we make ourselves worthy of happiness” – Immanuel Kant. But here is the question, can one ever be worthy of happiness due to the inherent capricious nature of humans. We are inconsistent beings, that choose when and where to apply this supposed sixth sense of moral…[Read more]

                • But what is happiness to begin with. If ask me, I’d say its absolutely nonsense.

                  It’s this false idea that at one point in time you will be free and unimpaired by any negative thing and that’s just not true. Things never go our way all the time and if they do it’s never 100%. And even if it were 99% that one percent would still refute the…

                • What would Kant say?
                  • I am not sure if upholding morals would give one happiness or not (as happiness is a very loose and highly relevant term), but it surely would make them feel harmonious and at peace with themselves.

                    It scares me that people even take videos but do not intervene.

                      Unfortunately, it never existed. It was a political catch phase. Human beings are inherently selfish. A stranger is less likely to get a smile from someone who is having a bad bad, probably ruined by someone else. Yes, my opinion is negative, but we have to face the reality that not everyone will care about others. It is important to teach love,…

                      This sounds very interesting, may you please elaborate?

                        The saddest part is that it is all dependant on the area and the status of the customers. Example, Pick n Pay Braamfontein looks dirty all the time, hardly ever has fully stocked shelves and is in a student area but provides little no no stationary. But pick n Pay hyde park is always clean and fully stocked. Why?

                          As a part of the youth and a first time voter, I feel very nervous for the upcoming elections. This is because I feel like I am voting because it is the politically correct thing to do, but deep down inside my full support does not reside with any political party. Should I just vote for a minority party to balance out the votes? Should I vote for…[Read more]

                          • I think you may consider some plan in this. The goal is not to give any political party more than the other. I might Vote DA or EFF just so they can go into coalition with each other. No one party should rule
                            • @theguy The EFF has expressed that they would not form a coalition with the DA in the future. The DA put posters up saying “stop the ANC & the EFF”. I highly doubt coalition is on either of their minds.
                              • So you trust everything political parties say?

                                DATA IS DISAPPEARING!!!! I have recently noticed that data does not last. When I say this, I say this in reference to last year. I spend less time on my cell phone, but use more data ? How is this possible. Why are cellular networks not explaining data costs, or providing a breakdown of how data usage is calculated. If they are, well their…[Read more]

                                • There are tons of reasons for this on the side of the consumer. The quality of the images you download when you visit websites or even background use. But honestly, just move to Telkom. For R150 I get

                                  2 Gig data
                                  500 MB data
                                  100 SMS’s

                                  As well as Telkom wifi data

                                  • You are Definitely not alone! I have had this conversation with so many others who have the same views. I am constantly finding myself with no data or airtime as it literally disappears. I too feel that we an explanation. Its is blatant robbery!

                                    As unpopular as that may sound, hear me out. An opinion is developed by ones PERSONAL assessment of the world. This assessment can change with experience and source input.
