FNB South Africa – now you can renew your license online

Today I attended the FNB South Africa launch of the FNB Nav Cars application. This application allows FNB customers to renew their car licenses online which I think is super cool. I myself bank with FNB and can appreciate this functionality. One of the cars that I owned is registered in North West, and it is a huge hassle to get the license renewed. I cannot (or in the past) could not get the license disc renewed in Gauteng, and had to travel to the North West Province to get the licensed renew.

PlayStation VR South African Release

Back in 2014, Sony claimed the center of attention in the information superhighway (the internet) when they announced that they had been working on a project known as Project Morpheus for over three years. It was later revealed that Project Morpheus was the code name for what would be known as the PlayStation VR – a Virtual Reality gaming head mounted display. Unlike HTC Vive and Oculus Rift at the time, the PlayStation Virtual Reality didn’t rely on a high-end gaming PC to operate but instead would be powered by the PlayStation 4. Over two years on and South African fans (and the world over) of the popular home video console can start to celebrate.
