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 the Paris attacks and the backlash Facebook faced for deploying its Safety Check tool there but not elsewhere. The team wonders about the ethics of brands exploiting the various conversations about Paris that dominated social networks to sell any Paris related item.
Also up for discussion this week is the 18th annual AfricaCom 2015 conference, YouTube introducing its offline capabilities to the South African market and whether Cape Town is the biggest startup hub in Africa.
Unfortunately this week, we do not have a “Tweet of the Week” because Twitter was down at the time of recording.
