Editor’s roundup


Dear reader

The big news this week has been the discovery of a new species of hominid, Homo naledi. Part of the single largest fossil hominid find in Africa, Homo naledi is thought to have walked upright, used fire and buried its dead.

Looking forward, Telkom is to begin the long-awaited process of local loop unbundling (LLU), but challenges the mobile telecommunications operators to come to the party.

Apple has once again pushed the boundaries, unveiling a slew of new lifestyle products, including the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, a new iPad Pro, updates to the Apple Watch and a show-stealing new Apple TV.

Closer to home, South Africa’s first video on demand (VOD) streaming service VIDI is offering anyone who registers on its web site the chance to enter a competition to win a 2015 Ferrari 458 Spider worth more than R5-million rand.

Until next week,
