TWR #130: SA Black Friday deals, Silicon Valley, Battlefront 2, and more

Welcome to The Weekly Roundup, where we discuss the latest in tech and startup news.

This week, Hadlee Simons hosts Stephen Timm, Andy Walker, and Julia Breakey.

Stephen kicks off the week by discussing the Silvertree founder who criticised the Silicon Valley model of glorifying the pitching of ideas, rather than helping entrepreneurs to better execute on these ideas.

We then move on to the lighter topic of Justice League, the latest superhero movie to hit the big screens. While Julia says it should win the hearts of fans, it may not be enough to convince non-believers that superhero films are worth the time.

Moving over to Gearburn, Hadlee talks Battlefront 2, and the comment that gave EA the most downvoted post in Reddit history.

Finally, the team chats Ster-Kinekor entertainment’s Black Friday sales — including all PlayStation VR bundles receiving a R1000 discount from the recommended price.
