The raging controversy around new personal financial management website 22seven and the reaction from local banks form the cornerstone of this week’s episode of the TalkCentral podcast, hosted by TechCentral editor Duncan McLeod and senior journalist Craig Wilson.
We ask whether 22seven should have engaged with the banks before launching the product, look at Absa’s reaction specifically and its plans to launch its own, similar service and consider whether the banks should publish application programming interfaces allowing third parties to read their clients’ statements and other financial data.
Also in this week’s show, we look at the resignation of the co-CEOs of BlackBerry maker Research in Motion, consider the chances of success for Nokia with Windows Phone 7 now that the first Lumia devices have been launched in SA and debate the impact of the news that the launch of commercial digital terrestrial television has been postponed.[gplayer href=”http://techcentral.co.za/wp-content/audio/TalkCentral/tc59.mp3″ ]Stream this week’s show: [/gplayer]
