Siya Kolisi KloppTwo weeks ago, Liverpool’s high-flying manager Jürgen Klopp was in the country. Klopp took advantage of the international break to unwind in Cape Town.

While there, Klopp went out for a meal at a local restaurant, and by complete chance bumped into Springboks captain Siya Kolisi and Proteas Test skipper Faf du Plessis.

You can imagine the shock on Kolisi when one of the most famous people in football approached him, recognized him and congratulated him for their success at the World Cup finals. Moreover, he told them that he actually watched the game.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Kolisi said,

“He came and greeted every single person at the table and spoke to me for over 40 minutes. When I saw him I fell off my chair!

“Everyone around me didn’t understand but I’ve got huge respect for him.

“He said he knew who I was and that he watched the final.”

Kolisi added that this encounter was one of the highlights of his life.

What made the moment even more memorable was that Kolisi is a huge Liverpool fan.

DStv dishlessMultiChoice has postponed the launch of its standalone streaming service until March 2020.

Unofficially dubbed ‘DStv dishless’, the service is an internet version of its DStv service, but pricing and other package information remain under wraps. DStv dishless was initially supposed to launch before the end of 2019.

The pay tv provider has faced numerous calls inside South Africa and across the continent to adapt or face its death. There have been many calls, particularly when it comes to its sports packages, to have them offered as a standalone online package.

This is from people who only subscribe to it for English Premier League, other European league and local sports.

With DStv prices quite high compared to Netflix and other entertainment streaming services, many across the country and continent have opted to ‘cut the cord’ and just pirate their way to sports viewing.

It remains unclear whether MultiChoice will finally bow to consumer demands and launch a separate sports streaming package.

DStv dishless is currently in the testing phase, and the Randburg-based company say they are ironing out all techincal problems before rolling out to the service.

Right now, details on pricing are uknown. It is also unclear what will be the commercial name for this new service.

What is clear is that it will be launched in South Africa first, with the rest of the continent following later.

DStv other online service, DStv Now, is radically different because it requires users to be existing subscribers of DStv.

A woman’s tale of her husband cheating ways has gone viral on Twitter.

The lady, going by the name Naledi Maleeme, shared a story of the day she found her then husband cheating inside their own home.

The two have since divorced, but the story is as disturbing as it is interesting. It shows the level of restraint some people have when it comes to dealing with infidelity.

As she narrated it, they both attended a wedding ceremony, but Naledi ended up returning to their house early. She explained that her reason for returning early was because she was not in the mood to party till late, plus she also has kids.

Her husband didn’t have similar obligations and instead went out partying.

Upon returning home, the husband brought with him a woman who was also at the wedding.

Having arrived home early, Naledi was also first to wake up the following day at around 6am. What she found in the lounge was quite shocking.

”My EX husband, slept with a women from a wedding we both attended I came back early from the wedding,he brought her to our house had sex with her I woke up to find her underwear,his shoes, his belt, her earrings in the lounge she was sleeping in the guest room,” she narrated.

It appeared her husband and the side chick had shamelessly done their business in the lounge, before proceeding to bed hoping no one would find out about it. But they forgot to wipe out the evidence.

Naledi did not make a scene, but proceeded to make breakfast for everyone including the side chick, who woke up nearly 5 hours later at 11am.

Not only that, but she also offered to drive her home. Needless to say, that marriage did not last long after that.

Read the full thread below.

As expected, Mzansi was shocked. Here are some of the comments that followed.

I’m sorry ….karma will get him sevenfold”

I’ve never pay attention to these threads but yhooo I kept reading your story and I must say you are very wise. God Bless you sisi”

Some stories here sound like a Tyler Perry movie. Some guys crazy out there.

This level of maturity signifies Self-Knowledge/Patience and Respect of the Highest Order You need to give Master Classes of self realization…

”Your level of understanding is amazing. People would have died that day kise”

”Eish sorry you won’t find a perfect man but atleast you will find the one who will respect you. We all cheat but in a respective manner. You deserve better.”

When Will Google Stadia Launch in South Africa ? https://joziwire.co.za/2019/11/when-will-google-stadia-launch-in-south-africa/ Tue, 19 Nov 2019 14:37:44 +0000 https://joziwire.co.za/?p=2524 Something huge is happening in the gaming world.

Google Stadia South AfricaSomething huge is happening in the gaming world.

While many people think the future of gaming will be more powerful Playstations, Xbox, Nintendos or other consoles, Google begs to differ.

The giant software company believes all you will need a few years from now is a screen with an internet connection.

A few months ago, Google announced Stadia, a cloud based gaming service. The service is launching on November 19 in the US, and will be gradually rolled out to several other countries and hopefully, eventually to the world.

Read: YouTube Brings Live Sports To South Africa

How Does Google Stadia Work?

Traditionally, high performance gaming involves expensive hardware, often costing thousands of Rands. The Playstation brand has been the most popular for years. Top 3 gaming consoles in terms of sales over the past few years have been the PS4, XBox One and the Nintendo Switch.

These consoles do all the heavy lifting, providing all processing requirements to give you a great gaming experience.

With the emergence of cloud computing however, the requirement of having expensive processors to do tasks locally has reduced significantly. Softwares like Microsoft Office can now be accessed purely online with a modern web browser.

In this case, all the processing work is done in industrial data centres owned by Microsoft, ensuring that even your weak laptop handles the tasks flawlessly.

This is the same direction Google is taking with Stadia.

Google Stadia South Africa
Stadia Chrome Interface

As long as your computer is powerful enough to stream YouTube videos, you should be just fine. Google’s data centres scattered all across the world will handle the game processing for you. What you will be seeing on your device, at least in theory, is just a video like you would expect when streaming on YouTube.

The best part of this cloud gaming is that you can pick up where you left inside the game, on any device without worrying about losing your saved progress.

Google is also heavily intergrating Stadia with YouTube, promising that you will be able to join in a game being streamed by your favorite YouTuber, at that exact moment in the game.

Google Stadia Internet Requirements

If Google is to be believed, you will not even require super fast internet speeds. With only 10mbps, you will be able to stream/play the game at 720p.

At 20Mbps, Google promises 1080p streaming and 35Mbps is said to support 4k streaming.

However, there have been claims that despite these promises, Google has been unable to deliver among those given advance access. One Forbes writer described the service as a disaster after failing to get consistent performance despite having an internet speed of above 200Mbps.

Do you Need a Console With Google Stadia ?

With this new service, you will be able to access tens of game titles, on the move with whatever device you are using; TV, computer, tablet, smartphone, perhaps even your smart fridge.

The service will be accessible via the Chrome browser, but in future Google might eventually launch a dedicated app.

However, you do need a gamepad for the ultimate console playing experience. The service will be compatible with industry standard gamepads, particularly the Xbox One Elite and the Playstation Dualshock.

Google has however released their own gamepad inspired by the two mentioned above.

You might also need a Chromecast external device if your TV does not natively support.

How much is a Google Stadia Subscription

Stadia is still very much in the early stages. Early adopters will initially be enthusiasts, and this is because of both the price and the unknowns in the service reliability.

There was initially a Founders edition for $129, but that sold out and has been replaced by the current Premiere edition for the same price.

With this you get a controller, Chromecast Ultra and a 3 month subscription of Stadia Pro.

Stadia Premiere is available in the US, Canada and Western Europe.

While Google Stadia was initially taunted to be the Netflix of gaming, that is turning out not to be the case. Apparently, gaming licensing doesn’t work like movie or TV series do.

Users will be required to buy the games, probably at full price, and Stadia will only house them in your library. If you need any new game, you will need to purchase it.

The $10 a month subscription price for Stadia Pro is only useful because it allows you to play in 4K. A free tier of Stadia will be launched in 2020, allowing you to play in upto 1080p.

However, the pro subscription will in future allow you access to many free titles, with Destiny 2: The Collection and Samurai Shodown available right away.

Is Google Stadia Available in South Africa?

As mentioned, Stadia will launch in November in the US, Canada and the Western Europe countries of United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.

As with many new services, like the recently launched Disney+, Africa as a whole and South Africa in particular have been ignored.

There is no word on when the eventual rollout will be made here, but we can guess it will be a year at least.

Perhaps then, South Africa will have improved the overall broadband internet speeds.

Uber Eats has launched its food delivery subscription service in South Africa.

The food delivery platform, owned by taxi hailing service Uber, will now let South Africans order food as many times as they can, and get it delivered for a fixed monthly price.

This subscription model is proving popular among major companies, particularly Amazon with its Prime membership in the US.

This new service, dubbed Uber Eats Pass, will be available for only R50 a month, which is around $3.4. In the US, the same service costs $9.99.

For an order to qualify however, it must be worth at least R80. You also need to make the order from your selected delivery area. If you travel to another area, you will need to pay delivery fees for that particular order.

“Eats Pass is your ticket to unlimited free delivery from any restaurant in your city, at any time,” the company said in the email to its members.

Eats Pass may prove popular to people who make online deliveries often, as a single delivery on the normal Uber Eats platform currently costs between R5 and R15.

To attract even more users, the company is offering a 2-month free trial for anyone who signs up before December 31.

It will be a long road for liquidators from VBS Bank, which intends to recover R7.3 million from former president Jacob Zuma.

Zuma is either too broke to even afford paying school fees for his daughter, or this latest news may point to a bitter family feud.

According to City Press, a Durban high school has obtained a default judgement against the former president and his fourth wife, Nompumelelo Ntuli. This is over unpaid school fees for their daughter, amounting to slightly above R12 500.

Despite the judgement against the Zuma’s being granted, the couple is yet to pay up. This is money that goes back to last year.

On top of the school fees, Zuma is also liable for the legal costs amounting to R1 412.

The court issued this judgement after Zuma failed to file a notice of intention to defend the claim.

While this may very well be a case of diminishing finances, it may also be a deliberate move by the former president.

In 2015, MaNtuli and her children were kicked out of Zuma’s Nkandla homestead, after she was accused of plotting to poison the president.

Zuma then shortly stopped all financial support to his fourth wife and children.
