  • Nkandla: Has Mantashe adopted Mashatile's genie? | Daily Maverick

    A few weeks ago, it seemed the top leadership of the ANC had retreated into the underground, much in the way the organisation operated during exile. Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko had released his astonishing report on Nkandla and it felt like people ran for cover – not knowing what to say about it. It was certainly difficult to get a coherent position on Nkandla then from the ANC, especially with Nhleko’s blasé announcement that more taxpayers’ money is likely to be spent at President Jacob Zuma’s home to step up security. Then ANC Gauteng chairman Paul Mashatile broke the conspiracy of silence and said at The Gathering last month that the ANC had not endorsed this position.

  • Google's Waze to start carpooling pilot program in Israel

    Google-owned online mapping company Waze is launching a carpooling pilot program in Israel where commuters pay fellow drivers a small fee for a ride to and from work. The new application, called RideWith, will use Waze’s navigation system to learn the routes drivers most frequently take to work and match them up with people looking for a ride in the same direction. Google bought Israel-based Waze, which uses satellite signals from members’ smartphones to offer real-time traffic information, for about $1 billion two years ago. “We’re conducting a small, private beta test in the greater Tel Aviv area for a carpool concept, but we have nothing further to announce at this time,” Waze told Reuters of its foray into the increasingly competitive field of ride-sharing.
