Come rain or shine, and it’s definitely the former in Joburg right now, it’s time for another edition of the africast.

For our shorter news segments this week we talk about the SAA once again placed into some new, familiarly bad, financial situation. Next up is Halo finally arriving on the PC with a few technical hitches, and finally data skills development in the country.

Our longer pieces start with Obsolete, a new anime which is part of the YouTube Originals stable. It may have full CG animation (a swear word in the anime community) but it turned out to be a lot of fun and gets a solid recommendation from us.

Next is the age old PC battle: Intel versus AMD. In recent months the unthinkable as happened as AMD outpaces its competitor in many aspects, including public perception. Backing Team Red for all these years is finally paying off.

Finally we leave the studio to sit down with Prebashni Reddy, Microsoft CSP product manager at Westcon-Comstor to discuss Microsoft 365. More precisely what it is, how it differs from Office 365 and why you should adopt it? Let’s find out together.
