Deck Magazine posted this photo on their Facebook page earlier today. I, literally, have no words for the amount of … creative inspiration … Econet took here. Imitation – the sincerest form of flattery. * Click the image for the full glory Update – TechZim did a story on this in 2011. I even commented on it.

Updated below The weekend before last there was a data outage. I have seen no explanation whatsoever, whether online or via SMS. And we all know how you love to send SMS. This past weekend was the same. In fact, Sunday was the day I really needed a reliable data service, and there was none. With no explanation. This is unacceptable.

Updated below I ranted at Econet about their mobile broadband offering on my personal blog earlier this month, and posted a screenshot of a MASSIVE typo on the (new) homepage. It’s still there today.
