  1. The co-founder of Australian rock band ACDC, Malcolm Young has died at the age of 64. Today it is with deep heartfelt sadness that AC/DC has to announce the passing of Malcolm Young. Malcolm, along with Angus, was the founder and creator of AC/DC. With enormous dedication and commitment, he was the driving force behind the band. As a guitarist, songwriter, and visionary he was a perfectionist and a unique man. He always stuck to his guns and did and said exactly what he wanted. He took great pride in all that he endeavored. His loyalty to the fans was unsurpassed.

  16. Johannesburg - Retailer Pick n Pay has launched its new revamped website designed to work alongside its recently relaunched mobile app. The company said the new website is geared towards catering for the rapid growth and use of smartphones in South Africa. “Our aim with the new site was to combine that convenience with a simple and clean customer experience that works equally well on desktops and smart phones or tablets. Our customers are mobile, and our new shop gives them on-the-go accessibility,” said Mike Cotterell, general manager of Pick n Pay Online Shopping. Pick n Pay online shoppers can also create shopping lists and view their purchase history, easily adding previously-bought items to their trolley. “Our biggest considerations in building the new site have been convenience, cost and range,” said Georgina Muirhead, head of customer experience and Mobile. Shoppers also have the option to collect their groceries, free of charge, from selected Pick n Pay stores. Last month, the retailer announced that it had successfully trialed letting customers pay for groceries using the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. The retailer, together with tech companies Electrum and Luno, piloted letting staff pay for groceries via Bitcoin at its head office in Cape Town. The pilot programme was limited to one store and is no longer active. Source: Fin24
  17. Johannesburg - Local network operator, Vodacom[JSE:VOD] will be exploring new digital opportunities which include medication delivered to rural areas by drone and self-parking taxis. The new opportunities were announced amid the firm’s rebranding with a new logo and tagline: “The future is exciting, ready?” Vodacom’s chief of its Consumer Business Unit, Nyimpini Mabunda, made the announcements at a closed briefing on Thursday at Vodaworld in Midrand, Johannesburg. He said the company was shifting its business focus strategy from just being a telecommunications network to now also adapting to technological advances. “There are a lot of advances around the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) that are not around yet, but when they happen, Vodacom will be there and it will be one of the first, if not the first, to bring these technologies to market,” Mabunda said. During the presentation, Mabunda said Vodafone is rebranding internationally and SA was chosen as one of five markets in the world to carry out a local execution. Mabunda said Vodacom had taken rebranding and international business strategies and adapted it to the local market as part of the company's vision for 2020. Self-driving vehicles Vodacom is exploring the possibility of connected vehicles such as taxis being able to park themselves - and is already partnering with German motor vehicle manufacturer BMW - and which will run off the network’s sim cards. “There is a huge opportunity within the driverless cars industry, but manufacturers also need to partner with the right network,” Mabunda said. Medication deliveries via drone The company also said that it is working to provide medical services to people remotely through wearable devices that could possibly diagnose a patient within a rural area, who previously had to travel long distances to receive medical attention or could not access such facilities. “We have been testing delivering medication via drone in very enclosed areas where drones are able to operate and we could see medication delivered by drones by 2025. We have to first look at legislation around operating drones,” Mabunda added. Data Vodacom is now serving 36 million customers and Mabunda said the company could soon see data usage make up 50% of the company’s revenue. On Wednesday the network provider announced that it will “significantly reduce” out-of-bundle prices for all customers from mid-October. For pre-paid and customers on top-up packages, the out-of-bundle rate will drop by as much as 50% once the new 99c per megabyte tariff comes into effect on October 15. "The out-of-bundle rate for post-paid customers was reduced from R1 per megabyte to 89c on October 1,” the company said in a statement. Source: Fin24
  18. Cape Town - The JSE powered to fresh highs on Friday, closing off a strong week of consecutive daily gains, as the market responded to a weaker rand. At the close of trading, all the major indices were in the green, as the larger dual-listed shares benefited from the weaker rand which traded at R13.72 against the dollar. The All-share index gained 0.41% and closed at 57 231.87 while the blue-chip Top40 gained 0.44% and closed at 51 010.38. Industrials gained 0.54% followed by Financials 0.29%, Resources 0.25% and Gold miners 0.07%. Lonmin [JSE:LON] shot the lights out and climbed 16.90% to R15.15 following an announcement that the platinum miner expects higher full year sales than previously estimated. The share has fallen over 50% since January. The platinum producer has also announced that it had fulfilled the last requirement to buy out its partners, Anglo American, in its Pandora project. Nearly a year ago, Anglo American Platinum [JSE:AMS] had agreed to sell its 42.5% stake in Pandora for R400m cash and a share of profit for six years. Brent Crude prices fell to $55.40/bbl as Russia clarified that President Vladimir Putin had not, as suggested, proposed extending the production cut agreement although he thought it was a possibility. Saudi Arabia’s energy minister also sounded lukewarm about an extension until the end of 2018, saying he was “flexible” about it. Crude prices had risen dramatically of late following the spate of hurricanes affecting refineries and the incoming tropical storm Nate heading for the Gulf of Mexico ahead of a likely US landfall as a hurricane this coming weekend. Nearly 15% of oil production and 6.5% of natural gas output in the US Gulf had been shut as of late yesterday as operators evacuate offshore facilities in advance of the storm. Non-farm payroll data out of the US surprised to the downside, with employment falling for the first time in seven years amid hurricane destruction. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma triggered a record drop in employment, especially affecting the hospitality and leisure sectors Netflix soared to the top of the S&P 500 in, advancing 5.4% to a new all-time high after announcing an upcoming price bump for its U.S. streaming services. Analysts say Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) subscribers are not likely to cancel in droves as they have in response to some previous price increases because the service now offers more content and is cheaper than many new rivals.
