Weekly Round Up #42: Uber’s deal with WesBank, Xiaomi in SA, PriceCheck sale and Apple Music

Welcome to Weekly Roundup, our podcast discussing the latest tech trends, innovation and news from the last few days.

This week on BurnCast, Stuart Thomas talks to Gearburn Editor, Andy Walker and Staff Reporter, Jacques Coetzee.

The team discusses major ride-sharing service Uber’s deal with South Africa’s WesBank, China’s mobile giant Xiaomi’s arrival in the South African smartphone market, local price-comparison PriceCheck sale by Naspers to its original founder Kevin Carter, and Apple Music finally arriving on Android platforms.

The team talks about what games, television series and movies they are currently enjoying. Stu is trying to catch up on sleep, Jacques has time traveled to his teenage years via a TV series and Andy is still waiting on a game to download.

And as always we have the Tweet of the week. This week the tweet comes from the South African public broadcaster, SABC.
