TWR #124: ‘horrifying’ Oscar Pistorius movie, Google Pixel 2 & more

Welcome to The Weekly Roundup, where we talk the past week’s news in all things tech and startups.

This week, Hadlee Simons hosts Andy Walker, Daniel Mpala and Julia Breakey in studio.

Daniel kicks things off by detailing Ventureburn’s currently-running Startup Survey. The survey aims to get a firmer grasp of the South African startup scene by examining its challenges, founders and funders.

We then move on to Memeburn, where Julia tells us about the Lifetime Oscar Pistorius movie, which seemingly tells the prosecution’s side of the story. The Steenkamps have issued a statement that they are horrified at the film, and the Pistorius family will seek legal action.

Over on Gearburn, Hadlee and Andy chat the newly unveiled Google Pixel 2. The smartphone — which will not reach SA shores any time soon — boasts a stellar camera, stock Android, and no headphone jack.

Finally, the team discusses UberEATS, which just celebrated its first birthday in SA this week by releasing some interesting stats about the strange food orders it saw in these fateful 365 days.
