In this episode of the weekly htxt.africast, the team discuss some of the biggest technology from the week.

Brendyn tells us all about the new products that Apple unveiled, including a stylus for $99 to work with the iPad Pro. According to Apple’s Phil Schiller, who revealed the iPad Pro on stage, it’s being billed as a full laptop replacement that “you can hold… all day”.

Clinton gives his honest opinion on the multiplayer-only game The Flock, a beautiful idea that’s not been fully realised. It is an irksome game, not because it’s outright frustrating or annoying – although it is – but because it dupes players into caring about it by promising a great deal.

Probably one of the most fascinating discoveries in Africa, Charlie talks about the unveiling of Homo naledi, a new hominin species that was found in Maropeng. It is said that the discovery of the fossils will challenge almost every notion of how humans evolved, along with its origins in Southern Africa.

Charlie started his professional life as a motoring journalist for a community newspaper in Mpumalanga, Charlie explored different journalistic angles since his entry into the fast-paced world of publishing in 2006. While fostering a passion for the arts, Charlie developed a love for technology – both which allowed him to serve as Entertainment and Technology Editor for an online publication. Charlie has since been heavily involved in consumer technology for various websites and publications. He thoroughly enjoys World War II films and cerebral documentaries; aviation; photography and indie music. Oh yes, and he also has a rather strange obsession with collecting coffee mugs from his travels.
