It’s amazing to think that since 2000, the GDP of South Africa has almost tripled in size: as recently as 1960, it was just 2% of what it is today. With that increase in wealth comes greater adoption of technology, and with that technology we get a rise in social media . This is evident through the growth in Twitter users in the country.
De tijdsgeest verandert steeds meer van ‘ik’ naar ‘wij’.
We love the Olympics , but an international social media showdown is a little more our speed.

Now we know Google ’s master-plan for integrating Google+ ever more deeply into the Google ecosystem: Pour the whole thing into Google search. Starting today, Google+ members, and to a lesser extent others who are signed into Google, will be able to search against both the broader web and their own Google+ social graph. That’s right; Google+ circles, photos, posts and more will be integrated into search in ways other social platforms can only dream about.

Digital tools such as YouTube , Twitter and Facebook have defined this year's social movements by giving rise to a new generation of activism. In 2008, Barack Obama's campaign was touted for its social media prowess . 2011's stories of online mobilization share a common thread, differentiating them from the U.S. President's election effort: grassroots organization by average individuals.

Raphael Halberthal and Tom Galle know your kids are more tech savvy than you, so they think your kids should be able to use tech for something most adults find common practice — communication. That's why Halberthal and Galle designed an email client tailor-made for toddlers, not grown-ups. The kid-friendly, iPad app, Maily, includes several of the same features of normal "adult" email hubs like Outlook or Sparrow.
Samsung's flagship phone for 2012, the Galaxy S3 , has just been announced, and I've had some hands-on time with it already. Watch the video above to see what I thought, and come back a little bit later to see a more in-depth video. Below is most of the video in text form for those that prefer reading to ogling.
In what might be the most inadvertently silly tagline in smartphone history, Samsung says the Galaxy S III is "designed for humans."
