Tech deals this week

Tech-Deals-08.08.15

It’s been a tough week for South Africa.

The rand is losing major ground to the US Dollar and British Pound, the mining sector is in trouble, and I am working this long weekend.

While I was initially saddened by the thought of spending three days behind my PC while everyone else did holiday stuff, I thought back to how I spent the previous weekend.

It was Saturday evening, around 20:00, and I was in my room with a blanket wrapped around me playing Cities: Skylines on Steam.

And to answer your next set of questions: no, there were no supermodels sleeping in my bed, and I was not on my way to a dope party.

At least my city of Alrightsville is thriving – I might even extend the subway system, paid for by increased tax revenue, in the coming days.

For those of you who prefer to spend real money in real life, here are this week’s best tech deals.
