Video of the Day

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 1.52.42 PM

This week Jeanette Marutle, systems engineer at EMC shows women what is achievable so that they can succeed in technical and non-technical IT roles. Marutle believes that if we can make women believe they can achieve anything, we’ll see more of them in the tech space. Marutle would encourage other women to get into the tech space, “Do it! Do it now!,” she says. “There are so few women in technical roles, and while it’s male-dominated, it’s fun and challenging and women bring diverse views and skills needed in the space. “It’s not about men and women,” she adds, “It’s knowing you have a right to be here, and that you have the qualifications and you can excel.”

Product of the Day

BO2

B&O BeoLab A6

The BeoLab A6 looks good and provides stunning sound – in just about any sized room. It can be wall mounted or stood on a bookshelf as a free-standing speaker. Despite its good looks though, setting it up is a bit of a mission. No instructions are included with the speaker and it has to be connected to a network – wired or wireless in order to be used properly. In addition, users can only really get the full benefit out of it with the B&O app, which means a smartphone or tablet running Android or iOS is needed. It does have volume and skip controls, but its touch and slide operation to adjust the volume is finicky and I often found myself skipping a track when instead I just wanted to turn the sound up. Overall, first time users will have a difficult time setting the device up and a dedicated remote would have been a great addition.

Expect to pay around R21 000
