TalkCentral: Ep 247 – ‘Vodacom vs Makate’

In the podcast this week, Duncan McLeod and Regardt van der Berg chat about the “settlement” between Vodacom and Nkosana Makate, the operator’s former employee who claims to have invented the “please call me” service.

Makate, clearly not happy with the (confidential) settlement amount from Vodacom is threatening to pursue further legal action. But has he run out of options?

Also on the show this week, a look back at the biggest announcements from CES — and why Regardt is excited about the range of new gaming laptops — as well as the 8K TVs punted by manufacturers. Do we really need 8K television?

Listen to the show to find out who’s been picked as winner and loser of the week.

Regardt’s pick this week is the Thermaltake Premium X1 RGB Cherry MX mechanical gaming keyboard, while Duncan has chosen Garmin Explore.
