Techzim Weekly Podcast: Econet bulk SMS blocking, Karbonn review, Mandela

In this episode of the Techzim Podcast, we had a guest, Tinashe Nyaruwanga, who is a digital media enthusiast whose social media articles we’ve featured here before. The other regulars on the show were techzim writer, Tendai Mupaso, William Chui (founder of SocialMe who played host), and myself.

So this week we discussed the Econet bulk SMS blocking issue, a review of the Karbonn Titanium S5 done by Mupaso, how brands reacted or took advantage of the passing on of Nelson Mandela, and we also discussed the startup, which shut down earlier this year. On the international scene we discussed the approval of the Microsoft Nokia buyout and how it may impact the phone brand’s fortunes on the continent.

We did quite well on the duration of the show, it’s down another 10 minutes fromĀ last week, which is pleasing. Plan is to make it even shorter, but keep still keep it as natural as possible.

      1. Is it possible to add a tab at the bottom of the page (under “Story Categories”) titled “Podcasts” such that if i click i can just access a list of all the podcasts. I think this will make life easier for ppl who just want to search and discover the podcasts like myself.. Thanks.
