Gamers on the Sony PlayStation 4 know perhaps too well the frustration that comes with having your gaming rig all of a sudden die down, just when you’re about to start a game. What a buzz kill!

Well, you will be glad to learn that Sony has come up with a fix for the bug that keeps sending your PS4 on crash loop. The company made the announcement on Twitter in response to a user who was pointing out the bug that bricked the console.

Though the company does not go into details other than simply saying “We’ve since fixed the issue,” and proceed to give a solution. I am not quite sure if Sony will issue a press release or do a blog post about this fix. Given the fact they have never officially acknowledged the problem, to begin with.

A section of tech news outlets have reached out to Sony for comments, but there is nothing much worth writing about other than the ‘writing that’s already on the wall’:

We’ve since fixed the issue, and it wasn’t bricking consoles, just sending them into a …read more

Zuku, a subsidiary of the Wananchi Group Kenya has for long reigned at the market leader for fixed internet service provider in Kenya. However, in recent years, that position is under serious threat as new companies enter the market, including Safaricom Home fibre.

As a matter of fact, in recent years, competition in the fixed internet provider market has been so stiff, that Zuku as the market leader is ceding some grounds. Much of it is caused by tough competition from Safaricom fiber fixed internet service; which entered the market quite recently when compared to Zuku.

Most recent data by the Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) shows the market share held by Wananchi Group fell to 30.4% in June, down from 34.4% in March this year. Though the company still holds the title as the market leader, with at least 112,155 subscribers.

On the other hand, Safaricom’s market share for the fixed internet business grew to 21.2% in June, up from 19.4% in the last quarter. Much of this growth is attributed to an aggressive marketing campaign by Safaricom, whose subscribers number totals 78,104.

Political pundits say politics is a game about numbers, and in Kenya, politicians seem to promise just about anything under the skies to get as many numbers as possible on their side. Before the 2013 general election, the current ruling political party in Kenya made promises to voters across the nation to facilitate ICT training across schools in the country starting from Class One.

That promise did not quite materialize in their first term in office which ended on August 8th, 2018, when the next general election was held. Though the did lay the foundation of the deployment of the laptops to schools in 2016; three years into their term in office.

A report published by the Business Daily says some 2,164 public primary schools are yet to get the promised laptops. That is two years later after the launch of the Digital Literacy Plan by the government.
