In case you weren’t aware, Kalahari and TakeALot.com last year announced that they would merge, in hopes to make both companies profitable. They will combine infrastructure and storage resources to make the online shopping landscape in SA a more pleasant place for all.

Recently the Huawei Mate 7 has made its way into the South African market and we were lucky enough to review it for an extended period of time. I actually took it on a trip to Europe and exclusively used it as my daily driver for the two weeks, so it had a lot of work to do.
