- Money used to be a sort of certificate for gold or silver. That is you could walk into a bank at anytime and exchange your bank notes for a prescribed amount of gold or silver. This was scrapped and now the paper in your wallet gets its value from the US dollar and the trust you may have in the austerity of the US economy.
- Bonds are a broke government’s way of getting quick cash from the affluent in the society. . they get quick money and pay out interest on the principle for many years. .. . .apparently started out in the city states of Florence and Milan and the others during times of war
- The evolution of money/ money markets has been as important as the first and second world wars in shaping the course of our civilization. . .
I just dont get it. . .I have done all the browsing and googling possible and I just dont get their argument. . . . .so orange , yu and zain want the 3G license fee to be reduced because . . . . .safaricom has a foothold in the 3g broadband sector?. . .so they want the fee reduced so that they can catch up?. . .as in wtf is cck doin even listening to these clowns?. . . so when MJ was risking his balls off investing in technology thats not even been fully adopted in Europe these pricks were still talkin about how these local baboons eardrums should be filled with stale ads about cheap off-peak calls / sijui cheaper sms crap while all we wanted was to get internet. . . so now that Safaricom's investment seems to be panning out the idiots want a piece of the pie. . . but not the legal way . . .they wanna go behind everyones back and get cck to cut safaricom to size because their lazy asses cant think of anything better to do. . . .
This is insane!!. . Meanwhile, the frenchies want back their money coz they cant locate a server. . . big flippin deal so you got gamed while you were buying, get with the program TIA(This Is Africa) baby!!. . .how bout you just gimme your shareholding and all be rolling profits sooner than you think. . .
No amount of hogwash is gonna chuck safcom from the top and you know why?. . .the executives there dont have their heads up their behinds. .. this is Kenya, so make a kenyan product. . . its really that simple . . take orange for instance. . .wtf is bunda? Or gura ? Or the other plethora of fishy names that they assign their products?. . . wont get started on zain. . . . they should check into a mental hospital for companies. . . .yu have no idea what they are doin. . . no clear strategy, just 2 month long plans. . . . till the new offer kwishas. . . till then they spam you with sms till your inbox fills up. . .(what are they doin with the database of guys who signed up as they launched?) whatever happened wit their 3g plan?. . . I give up. . .al just get a satellite phone and fiber for internet. . . . ..when I can afford it. . .SMH
companies in the data segment and only Safaricom lets you do what you
wanted to do. . . I took up the YU unlimited offer for 50 bob per day and all I can say
is that I have exhausted the expletives I had in my dictionary. . and
its a bit comprehensive. Its not just that they have capped the speed
@64kbps , its that they keep dropping the connection every other
minute or more frequently if they so desire . . . .its impossible to
do anything, even open a simple webpage and navigate it!. . .calling
customer care gives me a lot of PR bull that doesn’t solve any of my
problems and doesn’t help their case. . . . I see them packing up real soon and I for one will not be
dissapointed. . .The fact that all these companies are ganging up
against Safaricom even placing ads in the dailies whining about how
Safaricom is dominant and they are not is just pathetic. . Safaricom
brought M-Pesa when they were acting all snooty saying it wont
work,Safaricom invested in a 3G license when they were seated in their
offices saying how internet is expensive because of satellite bandwith
and related bull. . ., Safaricom started per second billing when
Kencell thought that mobile phones should only be for the rich and the
rest should just stick to booths. . . . innovation after innovation
turned into billions after billions and now the snooty French, Indians
and Arabs want a share of the profits when all they offer is cheap
on-net calls? Gimme a break . . . These guys should shove a sock in it and sell their firms to Kamau and
Fatuma and Wakhisi, pack up and go back to exploiting their customers
back where they came from(do you know Americans pay to receive calls
and sms’s? the nerve of those companies!)
the shiznit!!! I now understand why some people swear on it and would
rather save up a couple of thousand bucks to buy a slate of
microprocessors,solenoids ,metal and glass. . . . The experience is so
worth it. . . This is what technology is all about . . .I ain’t gonna
bore you with details of specs n related cliches but this is an
experience no one shud ever not experience. . . .am beginning to
understand masclows(is that the spelling?) heir achy of needs, first
get a good meal, then a roof over your head, then security and then
you get yourself an iPad and be sure to be happy… . . . . . If you
techie like me am sure you will love Too. . . . Mwangy out. . . . .
ntworks, I remembered one of my first lessons on relationships,
heirachy and power. Generally those who have high mental acuity , can
easily decipher or detect patterns, and can harness charm and know
their way around chicks tend to be the guys who make all the money,
get bedroom reputations and generally become the envy of the hapless
kaliwad men who wish they would get out of their average lives and get
some of the action . . Needless to say this never happens and as
caroline mutoko would say they lead an average life , get an average
chick, average kids . . . Get the drift. . . .and they spend most of
their free time coming up with excuses as to why they aint successful
. . .yet. this came flooding back when I studied all markets with a
player that exhibits characteristics akin to the successful alpha
male. They dominate the market, they are loved and vilified and all
the other players wish they were there . . . Just thinkin out loud . .
. Mwangy out . . .
