Uber Driver app Review: Experiencing the Ugandan Uber Driver side of things

Techjaja - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 11:09

At least Uber is synonymous in many people’s’ ears since it has become a universally accepted alternative to crowded Matatus, Special Hires and hey, car owners that feel like they would need to be chauffeured to their destinations, at least to the Ugandan Urban middle class. These Uber prefers to term them as riders given they use the former’s rider app but what about the people that drive them around? The drivers?

Today, we are here to discuss about them. The drivers, the chauffeurs or whatever you prefer to call them and we had an opportunity of experiencing Uber on the driver side of things particularly Uber X. How does their app work? What is so different from their app than the riders? Is their interface the same as that of riders? These and more have been answered while also giving you a sneak peak of a few things reserved on the driver side of things.

The Uber driver/Partner app is available both in the App Store and PlayStore only that you can use it after going through a thorough certification process with a few submittals like

  • A licensed car
  • A valid driver’s license
  • An Interpol Certificate of Good Conduct
  • A national ID or passport
  • KCCA Permit/Sticker
  • Vehicle Insurance Policy
  • Vehicle Log Book
  • SGS Vehicle Inspection Certificate

All these are validated to ensure that the drivers are on par with Uber standards besides safety concerns and the abiding by regulatory framework in order to not to crossfire with authorities.

A training process commences thereafter and graduands are then certified as drivers, given access to the Uber driver/partner app and all they have to do is enter their credentials, select their vehicle by tapping the accounts tab and chose to go online and yeah, become Uber drivers/partner and commence operations. (More on this later)

Let us talk about the User Interface (UI)

The Welcoming User interface (UI) is quite simple with a Home, Earnings, Ratings and Accounts tabs at the bottom. The navigation map takes a large chuck of the welcoming screen, the activation button is the the top left and a drop down menu at the opposite side that is the top right.

You might be wondering what the heck do all the tabs above represent. Worry not, let us delve into all these tabs, toggle them for you, explain their representation and the different services that accrue once you tap on one.

The activation button lets you choose whether to be online and accept rides or not. This helps drivers to decide when to work and when not to work depending on their preferred work schedule.

The Home tab is of course the welcoming home page with a map as is the case with the riders app. It also displays communication from Uber to drivers normally in a cards format  with tips, promotional information among others.  On cases where a portion of the map is geo-fenced inscribed with a number, the fence depicts an area you are most likely to pick up riders while the number normally followed with a multiplication symbol represents the chances (number of times) you’re most likely to get requests from that particular area.

At times, it might be a heat map  with different colors of Yellow, Orange and Red. All these represent surge at different degrees. While yellow is for low surge, orange is for medium surge and red is for High surge.

Surge for this case means high rider demand in relation to the supply of drivers. Apparently for surge to surface,  the demand for rides is higher than the available drivers and as a result, the fares also shoot up by a particular percentage as depicted by the aforementioned colors.

The earnings Tab of course shows the driver his earnings over the course of the week. It should be noted that Uber drivers are paid per week and this section is a cumulative of their different earnings from different trips as well as other promotional incentives that accrue to their accounts.

The Ratings tab is where you will find ratings from riders normally on a scale of 1 to 5 with 1 being the worst while 5 is the best. Here you also find rider feedback, compliments (The can be in a riders appreciation of car, in-car infotainment system, services among others), a driving style dashboard, pro tips to improve on one’s skills as well a weekly reports.

The Accounts tab is where you will edit your account details like name, number among others, choose the car you’re to use, seek help from Uber, report issues among others, get your Waybill which contains details of your last trip, submit/change bank details and upload and check status of required documents to be an Uber driver as stipulated the third paragraph.

The Experience

Now that you know what each tab represents, let us get into the experience of using the app as a whole. The question tinkering in your head might be like; how do drivers accept rides, how do they get to know where the rider is located, what happens after the trip is completed among others.

A ride request comes in form a  beep accompanied by a sound and tapping the smartphone screen is a confirmation that you have accepted the ride. The second phase is now navigating where the rider is located.

You can do this by pressing the arrow icon located on the top left corner of the screen and then follow directions to the pick up location. For cases where you can’t locate the rider, you can opt to call them by tapping the clipboard icon, selecting contact and then dialling the number on the screen.

After locating and confirming the rider and their destination, sliding the green start trip button at the bottom of the screen starts the trip. After reaching the rider’s destination, sliding the red complete trip button ends the trip and thereafter the payment or break down of the fare information is displayed (For this case it was  a green screen depicting cash). Next is tapping collect cash  and then boom, you get paid, input the rating of the rider, you can as well put a reason for your rating and you’re good to go.

For such cases that you can’t take the rider’s, you can just ignore the request beep (Uber discourages you to) or after confirming, you have to tap the clipboard icon and then select cancel instead of contact, input the reason for the cancellation and Uber will let the rider know that you’ve cancelled their trip.

Other interesting features within the app is the ability to have utmost two trips per day that you can only activate to accept rides taking your preferred direction. This is good if you prefer doing Uber when to and fro work especially for folks with a 9 – 5 job.

It also allows some sort of Facebook Messenger chathead-esque functionality with the ability to allow the driver to do other stuff on his smartphone while the driver app appears as a chathead.

What we would like to see
  • The ability for an in-app chat feature to easily locate riders as some of them input wrong up locations.
  • The option to allow riders tip drivers after the end of the ride.

Gizmo Crash : The future bendable laptop

Techjaja - Wed, 06/21/2017 - 15:24

Today we crash on the future of laptops and this concept laptop by Lenovo that has some wild ideas to share. The company has show off the above image at an event in New York today.  This is Lenovo’s idea of the future of personal computing with an image of a bendable laptop with a flexible display. It comes with a full built-in keyboard; and even the signature ThinkPad pointing stick, or mouse nub. Since the laptop is so thin, we expect most of the interaction to happen over voice commands or a stylus. The company Lenovo says that this concept would be achieved through “advanced materials” and “new screen technologies.” Not forgetting future battery technologies.

A foldable PC? Maybe someday. Just a concept for now. #LenovoTransform pic.twitter.com/UIq1qpaSwj

— Lenovo (@lenovo) June 20, 2017

We don’t think we are even five years away from such laptops to see the light of day so we have to hold onto our horses, at least not for a while. Several companies including Samsung have shown off flexible displays at major international tech events like CES, and yet, we have no flexible displays in our daily lives.

Well lets see how long it will take device makers to bring flexible displays to the mass market in any product.

Kenyans are getting a music streaming app from Safaricom but one could do for Ugandans too

Techjaja - Wed, 06/21/2017 - 14:51

Kenya’s biggest telco Safaricom, apparently is launching a stand alone music streaming service, allowing musicians to upload a great amount of their creative work to the service while also allowing its subscribers to listen to it. At a cost of course but mostly likely, these users data will be zero rated to attract not just numbers but make them part of the experience.

Away from Kenya

Okay, let us come back to reality in the land. Here, there is no such a thing as a streaming app from any of the telcos. Caller tunes is what is being fronted while streaming has been left to the likes of YouTube, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer among others. These are big guns and competing with them can take a great deal of effort but they all lack a thing or two that might play to the local players advantage, local content!

With the exception of YouTube, the rest haven’t focused so much on the local industry but Google’s video service has infamously been labelled a data hog. How about a zero rated music streaming service with a local ingredient from a local giant?

It’s so absurd looking for local talent on these services only for the search to return blank results.

Either the industry as a whole hasn’t built enabler synergies for this or artistes themselves haven’t yet embraced the future but the future is slowly catching up them sooner than later.

Caller tunes were a hit. What about a streaming Service?

When telcos fronted caller tunes, artistes followed suit and most likely if they get past the paperwork and legalities involves, artistes could follow their lead this time around given monies are involved for their royalties.

Music downloading is gradually becoming a thing of the past while streaming from the cloud is slowly gaining ground lost by the former.

We now have phone cameras that shoot in 4K, add that not only to photos and video but large apps and files that renders the 16GB, 64GBs and 128GBs of storage a little nothing than an accommodation of the the aforementioned files. If you’re to add local files like music to the equation, your further strain the default storage that comes with most of these gizmos.

Give Ugandans an option to listen to music with unlimited storage in the cloud, slowly, the uptake will rival music downloads since there is an option of saving on storage.

You can also include a few value additional services just to get everyone hooked. Like a place to call home and then telcos can capitalization on that while trying to offer value to their subscribers.

How will subscribers to this service pay? Of course Mobile money and cards for those that use them. Artistes on the other hand could reap rewards from streams  instead of letting the pirates reap the rewards off their work.

Smile Telecom quietly adds new UnlimitedPlatinum bundle, further screws up UnlimitedPremium plan

Techjaja - Wed, 06/21/2017 - 12:00

Following the recent launch of Unlimited internet from the MTN Uganda, Smile Communications has also beefed up its Unlimited offering with a pricier data bundle called UnlimitedPlatinum. The bundle joins the UnlimitedPremium and UnlimitedEssential that cost UGX 330,000 and UGX 179,000 respectively. The new UnlimitedPlatinum Internet bundle will cost UGX 550,000.This is the third time Smile has changed its Premium data plan in less than a year.

This blog has come to learn that Smile UnlimitedPremium subscribers who will top-up their internet packages from today on wards will be disappointed with the new caps that the company has put in place. A current Premium customer will have to upgrade to the new Platinum plan in order to enjoy the same level of service they had before, which means they would have to add an extra UGX 220,000.

Okay, lets get down to the numbers. The new Platinum plan will start off with speeds of up to 6 Mbps, when you reach 60 GB, speeds will be throttled down to 4 Mbps, and when you exceed 100 GB, you its 1mbps and after you hit the 120 GB mark you will experience snail slow 128kbps.

new smile platinum and premium data caps

This is how bad it is for the current premium users, in the new data cap structure, you will start off with the usual 6 Mbps  up to 60 GB, after that you will capped to 4 Mbps until 75 GB. Between 75 and 100 GB customers will be experiencing 1 Mbps speeds and after 100 GB its 128 kbps. The UnlimitedEssential plan remains unchanged.

Google has a surprise for you if you type in “Spinner”

Guru8 - Wed, 06/21/2017 - 10:19

This fidget spinner trend has hit the Internet pretty hard. Google too has embraced it.

A company well known for pranks and Easter eggs has hit a fully functional but virtual fidget spinner in its Search Engine, am talking about Google.

All you have to do to access it is type the word “spinner” only. You will be able to spin it yourself and even see other options like a number spinner. After getting utmost gratification, or if your boss walks in, just click anywhere on the spinner to stop it instantly.

So the purpose of this is just to shade of a percentage of the entire world’s productivity after all an individual at the Google developer team had a few extra hours to put this idea into play.

Thanks a lot Google.

Owning a UTL SIM card will soon be mandatory for all Ugandans

Techjaja - Tue, 06/20/2017 - 10:13

Ugandans will soon be forced to own a UTL SIM card in order to save the struggling telecom company. This was revealed yesterday by the State Minister for Investment and Privatization Evelyn Anite, where every Ugandan will have a UTL SIM just like the National ID. Speaking at the UTL staff blood donation drive at the constitutional square in Kampala, the outspoken minister said that owning a UTL line should be a show of pride and patriotism for Ugandans. Anite was tasked with ensuring that UTL doesn’t wind up.

Uganda Telecom has been facing challenges of nearly one trillion shillings in debt and was recently placed under receivership.

UTL’s blood donation drive is in partnership with Uganda Blood Transfusion Services (UBTS) will be held at the Constitutional Square in Kampala from Monday June 19th to Wednesday June 21st 2017. The drive will then be moved to Queens’ way, Entebbe road from Thursday June 22nd to Saturday June 24th 2017 from 8:00am to 5:00pm daily.

Speaking at the launch, the State Minister of Finance for Investment and Privatization, Hon Evelyn Anite praised UTL for taking the lead in spearheading such initiatives. “I am glad to officially launch this blood donation drive and call upon everyone to join us as we donate blood and save lives.

Mr. Bemanya Twebaze, the Administrator, Uganda Telecom thanked the minister for being a part of the drive and promised that through UTL’s CSR department, more of such activities will be held. He said “I thank the honorable minister for taking time off her busy schedule to be a part of this initiative.  I have a vibrant and dedicated staff at UTL and we are working together to ensure that such activities are continuous.

Apple Music quietly added a UGX 170,000 annual subscription plan

Techjaja - Tue, 06/20/2017 - 09:10

Apple Music subscribers in Uganda, currently pay UGX 18,000 ($4.99) every month and UGX 29,000 ($7.99) for a family plan per month. But Apple has quietly added another option that lets you pay can now pay about UGX 170,000 ($49) for a 12-month subscription.

This setting is quite buried as Apple doesn’t want you to know that you can pay less than what you’re actually paying. We tried different scenarios, and it was quite hard to find the new annual plan — but it’s real. Apple clearly wants to remain ahead of the competition like Spotify who don’t have annual subscription plans and have no presence in most of the countries including Uganda.

If you’re not a current Apple Music subscriber, the Music app only lets you subscribe to a normal monthly plan. But if you’re an existing subscriber, you can go to your membership settings and switch to an annual plan. So new users will have to buy a monthly subscription first and then switch. With the annual subscription, it means you can save over UGX 40,000 ($10.88).

New Apple Music annual subscription

So if you think you’re going to keep using Apple Music for the foreseeable future, you can switch in a couple of taps and save around 17.5 percent.

It should be noted that Apple Music subscription rates are change geographically as the app users in US will have to part with $99 for the same 12-month subscription.

The Uber Passenger App Review: A 24/7 ride experience

Techjaja - Tue, 06/20/2017 - 09:06

U ber recently updated their passenger app with a major redesign, something they had not done since 2012. In this review we shall to learn how to request rides, maintain a high Uber rating score and more. If you’re an Uber driver, you’ll also find out how you can still use the updated app to scout out the competition and snag more requests. We however have a full Uber driver app review here, so don’t hesitate to check it out but for now lets have a full Uber Passenger App Review.

Lets get started

If it’s your first time using Uber, click here to get an account and also get a discount on your first ride. You will also need to enter you details, like name email, phone number and create a password. Finally you will need to download the Uber app to your smart phone or tablet by searching for “Uber” in your app store or Google Playstore.

When you first open the app, you will be prompted to enter your phone number and password you used when you Signed up. Then, you will be taken to the main screen. Here the app will show you up to 8 drivers closest to your location.

Request a ride Requesting Uber ride, ETA and Options that follow

With the new Uber app, you are able to request for a driver immediately, or schedule one for the future. Tap the calendar icon to the right to schedule a ride or tap where to if you are ready to go right away. My experience with scheduling a ride is that if you stay in areas with few Uber drivers, you must at least expect a 10 to 30 minute delay especially during rush or peak hours.

The App will use your phone’s current GPS location. To fill in the address where you would like to be picked up, please give your phone’s GPS some time to settle until you request for a ride. This means, double check to make sure the address being provided by your GPS is correct. You can edit or move the location pin if needed.

Something for the drivers

If you are a driver, you can use this screen to scout out the competition. After you tap the starting location line, you will be able to see the map again, from here you can scroll and zoom to show you the 8 drivers closes to the new pin location, this will also help drivers scout out the competition and position yourself away from a dense park of drivers thus maximizing your chances of receiving a ping when a new passenger request comes in.

Smart Features

Once you’ve got your pick up location set, you will need to enter your destination. You can enter an address or search for places by name but double check to make sure you have the right one before you get going. Sometime there might be several different destinations with the same name. Two new features in the Uber app are Smart Address suggestions and Location sharing. The app will save locations that you travel to or from as shortcuts and suggest them at the bottom for easy access. You will also see the option to ride to your friend’s current location (may not be available to everyone).

Trip fare known in Advance

Once you’ve selected your destination, Uber will show you a preview of your ride on the map. Uber recently changed their billing method to a more customer friendly variant where one gets to know how much their trip will cost in advance. Even if this angered most Ugandan Uber drivers initially, it was best for the customers. Now you can see the actual fare that you will pay for the ride. Fares for a given ride may vary depending on the time of day. Pricing is based partly on current demand and driver availability, so expect to pay a bit more, when heading home from a big event, when it rains or during the busy hours.

If you haven’t yet entered a payment method, the app will prompt you to do so at his point. Keep in mind that the app gives you the option to share the bill with your friends (max 4) and you can pay with either your debit/VISA card or cash with Mobile money options coming soon in the near future. In our review and interactions, we’ve noted that some drivers prefer cash to card payments and will cancel trips or rate passengers low based on this.

Lets get riding

Once your request is accepted by a driver, the app will show you their Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) along with their first name, picture, car (get ready to see all kinds of Toyota brands ever made) and license plate. If you have special instructions for your driver, tap the bar at the bottom. Tapping contact will give you the option to call or preferably SMS your driver (wondering when WhatsApp integration will be added). If your pick up address is a bit vague like most address are in Uganda, you can help your driver to get to you quickly by telling them exactly where to meet you once they arrive. Most Uber drivers in Uganda will always call you to confirm your pick up place, but be warned they are not mandated to do so.

If the driver delays or any other issue happens, you have the option to cancel the trip, however if you cancel after 5 minutes, a standard charge of UGX 3,000 will be billed to your account.

When your car arrives, confirm the driver’s name and you will be on your way. During the ride, you can view your progress on the map. Please be warned that at this stage the app uses a lot of your device’s resources so don’t be worried if the device get a little bit warm. Scrolling down, you can see your current trip details. Tapping the Change button next to your destination allows you enter a new destination. Your driver should receive a notification and their GPS should update accordingly. You can also share your ETA with a friend by tapping Share Status. When you keep scrolling down on the same page you will find new Uber promos and services if any at that particular time.

Rating time

When you’ve reached your destination, your driver will end the trip and your app will ask you to rate them. If all was well, please give your driver the full 5 stars and he will do the same for you. Uber is very strict about ratings. So drivers try hard to make every trip a 5 star experience. In some countries if a driver’s average rating falls below 4.6 they will no longer be able to work on the platform. But, in Uganda, I have been driven by drivers with ratings as low a s 4.4.  You can also write complements or write a thank you note to your driver. Drivers can see both notes and compliments but they are not factored into their ratings.

Uber Menu, Rating and Trip Details Should I tip my driver?

A few passengers in Uganda wonder if they should tip their drivers, although tipping is not required remember that tips are not included in the fare. Drivers very much appreciate anything extra you can give especially for shared rides or short minimum fare trips below UGX 5,000. When you take the booking fee into account, Uber winds up keeping a percentage of every fare and they don’t reimburse drivers for any gas, maintenance or other expenses.

Understanding the Uber Menu

Tapping the icon to the top left opens the main menu. Under the payment section, you can add different credit or debit cards or choose the cash option. Companies and Individuals can also set up a business profile to easily charge all of your business trips to a different payment source.

If you need to report a problem that occurred during the ride, go to the menu and tap, Your Trips. Tapping a trip will show you a list of common issues including lost items, payments problems and more. If the issue concerns multiple charging, scroll to the bottom and report that particular issue.

The Free Rides menu option allows you to invite friends to signup for Uber using your unique invite code in my case its rogerb3253ue. So if they decide to use Uber, you’ll earn a credit on your account.

Interview: Anita Fabiola Opens Up About Grief After Prof. Mukiibi’s Death

PC Tech - Mon, 06/19/2017 - 20:24

For the first time, city socialite and former Be My Date Host, Anita Fabiola Kyalimpa has given an interview in the aftermath of Professor Lawrence Mukiibi’s death. We reproduce the interview here as the beauty queen reveals deeper secrets about her depression, her future and the legacy of Prof. Lawrence Mukiibi.

CampusEye: Hi Fabiola, thanks for granting us this interview. So let’s get started. Where did the news of Prof. Mukiibi find you?

Fabiola: It actually found me in the shower room. I had partied the night before but I still had an appointment in town that morning. Then my call begun buzzing non-stop. Normally I don’t pick numbers I don’t know. But this time round, my heart shuddered, it was a premonition of sorts. I picked and the voice on the other side broke the news in half tones; “Fabi, Daddy is dead.”

CampusEye: Did you bother to ask which Dad?

Fabiola: The first name that came to mind was my school Daddy, the sweet professor. I had visited him in hospital that week, he had clasped my hands then whispered that he felt we may never meet again. I laughed it off. But now when the news came it, I knew there and then, he meant what he had said.

CampusEye: What did you do after that call?

Fabiola: I immediately got paralysed, stopped everything I was doing, started sobbing. I then sent out a message to all the people I was supposed to meet and told them that I had called off the meetings. I didn’t give a reason.

CampusEye: After the burial, when the stories started circulating that he had sexually molested his students, did you feel betrayed?

Fabiola: Not at all. They could have said a million things about him, but my impression of him, my memory of that man would have never been fazed. In fact, the more bad things went around him, the more I held dear to the awesome times we had together.

CampusEye: What were those memories?

Fabiola: I used to have a very low self-esteem. I was very conscious of my body, low confidence and I generally didn’t believe I would turn out to be somebody. I was always in and out of mini-depressions. Then comes around Daddy and he is the first man that truly believed in me. While everyone around me made a fuss about about mistakes, this man was like a Jesus, only interested in my strengths.

CampusEye: So you mean, he made you?

Fabiola: If you want to put it that way. But one thing I can say, there would have been no Fabiola if there had been no Mukiibi. When I was made a prefect, he made sure he opened me up to all his networks, introduced me to the good things in life and taught me to expect much more from life and see myself as high value. He kept saying; “Fabiola you are a big deal, you must walk that.”

CampusEye: Did he ever get sexually intimate with you?

Fabiola: If I say “No”, you will think I am telling lies. If I say “Yes”, then that will become the next big news. People are free to believe all they want. I honestly don’t give an F. Even if he did me, what does that change? Will that increase global warming? Will that increase Uganda’s inflation rate? People get so petty and concerned about things that just minute. Let’s focus on his grand contributions. Not whether he slept with Fabiola or not.

Fabiola when she gave a motivational speech at St. Lawrence School Day

CampusEye: So you are saying it’s okay for him to have slept with his students? Especially the headteacher’s prefects?

Fabiola: Come on, has any of the girls come out to claim they were defiled. We are talking about rumours. And everyone has some rumour going around them. So until some girls go out and prove that he indeed used them, I just won’t give those rumours any weight. And even if it turns out to be true, the Mukiibi I know will still remain the Mukiibi I know.

CampusEye: Do you miss him? How have you been coping after his death?

Fabiola: I got depressed after Daddy’s death. He’s one man I would call up at any time of the day and open up to about anything. Whenever I was broke, he was my last and sure alternative. When they exposed my apartment on TV, he called me up and said; “Fabiola, if you want a house, I can give you one.” When my nudes came out, he’s the first person I ran to. That’s how much I trusted him with everything about him. There will never be a man who fits his shoes.

CampusEye: Btw how come you did not eulogise this daddy of yours on Social Media?

Fabiola: Because I felt I needed time solos. I had just lost one of my best friends. I just wanted to have time alone to mourn a man that made me. Even up to now, I am still mourning, even though I try to hide it.

CampusEye: What do you love the world to remember about Prof. Mukiibi?

Fabiola: I would love him to be remembered as a Daddy. You can see that all ladies that went through his hands grew up to be self-confident, ambitious, self-loving. He just knew how to unlock people’s potentials. He was always someone that you wouldn’t resist hugging. He should be made a saint.

CampusEye: One last word to the readers?

Fabiola: Just live your life. Yolo is still the trend.

Pepsi Uganda website hacked

Guru8 - Mon, 06/19/2017 - 18:43

This year has really been a hard drift for Pepsi and the brand is still struggling, at least in Uganda. Just months after the Company suffered a PR saga after the Kendall Jenner Pepsi commercial that sparked hatred and the Company suffered a backlash from fans all over the world forcing the ad to be pulled, Pepsi in Uganda suffered another mishap.

One of Pepsi’s flagship brands Mountain Dew was seen battling Harris International’s (Riham) Sky View as the adverts looked alike, and so did they taste alike which caused a lot of confusion among the consumers of Pepsi’s Mountain dew although no charges were pressed.

Now, Crown Beverages (Pepsi) in Uganda is facing another challenge after their website got hacked by NorilaClasse. NorilaClasse is a group of hackers alleged to be from Algeria who post exploits of popular content management systems on their social media pages.

As I was checking the Pepsi Uganda website (pepsi-cola.co.ug), for some information regarding their drinks, we found out that a segment of the website had been hacked. The hack is mainly based in their News sections.  We reached out to Mutamuliza Liz, the PR of Crown Beverages who told us she wasn’t aware of the hack and will respond to us when she has more details.

#td_uid_1_59480a5459e69 .td-doubleSlider-2 .td-item1 { background: url(https://guru8.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/screencapture-pepsi-cola-co-ug-media-news-2017-06-10-aaa-1497883200400-2-80x60.png) 0 0 no-repeat; } #td_uid_1_59480a5459e69 .td-doubleSlider-2 .td-item2 { background: url(https://guru8.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/screencapture-pepsi-cola-co-ug-1497883297569-1-80x60.png) 0 0 no-repeat; } Screenshots of the attacked Pepsi Uganda website 1 of 2

Will Pepsi (Crown Beverages) survive this year in a market where everything seems volatile? Anyhow, it’s high time developers and website designers in Uganda became wary of hackers in a bid to protect their clients from embarrassment.

Tricks Ugandan Guys Use To Get Laid At Campus

PC Tech - Sun, 06/18/2017 - 16:23

Ugandan dudes are cunning, they have a million ways to bell the cat, they are very charming when it comes to getting leg at campus. Here are some of the tricks they use to get Kokonyo.

The Movie

“Hey want to come over and a catch a movie Friday/Saturday night?” This, I feel, is the most used one in university. You invite a girl over for a movie; make sure it runs late and pray to your God that she doesn’t decide to head back to her room. This is especially effective if you leave on the other side of campus from her or one of the remote dwellings off campus. In fact I’d wager that over 90% of all movie watching requests from dudes to girls in campus are just attempts to get laid or build an amount of comfort in one’s presence for it to happen one day. This is how it usually goes down:

Boy: Hey. How you doing? What you up to this Friday? (Has to be a day that she has no early morning things to do therefore the weekend is a safe bet for a student. The greeting is just politeness)

Girl: I’m good. It’s been a long day. Friday? I have class all day until 5 then FREEDOM!!

Boy: You want to come catch a movie? I have *insert movie title here*

Girl: Sure. What time do you want me to come by? (Hope)

Boy: Come around 8:30, after supper.

Girl: Okay, I’ll be there.

Boy: Nice, see you then.

Boy: (10 minutes later) Will you sleep over?Now that very last line is the real clincher there, only for the very brave because it immediately reveals your intentions – you know, if the girl has half a brain. This question is actually saying one thing, “Do you want to fuck?” Well perhaps not so crudely said but he is asking for sex.

Anyway, during the movie hands will roam and hopefully lead to exciting stuff. I suggest picking a movie with as many sexual overtures as possible. There’s a series that a girl friend of mine says this of, “Why spend an hour pepeta’ing the jiko (fanning the flames) when you can pop in *the series* and be ready in 5 minutes?” She’s right, I’ve used it before ;). If you want the name of the series feel free to email me.

I remember this girl I was having a thing with, not dating, and I told her I was having some friends over for a movie. She asked who and I told her two girls from class. It was something that we had had going weekly long before I meet this girl. She seemed cool with it but then in the middle of our movie my door swings forward with so much force I thought it had been kicked in by the police. There she was standing, looking like she expected to find me in the middle of a threesome (not had one yet but I hold out hope still). I was livid.

The New Music

This next one is a variation of the first one, it’s “Hey, I’ve got this new album from *artist/band name* come over we listen to it.” This is one of my personal favourites, tell you why in a bit. Same basic sequence as with a movie, but better. With a movie she can always pretend that she’s paying attention to it and doesn’t want to be interrupted, but with music you’re already talking (because no one just listens to the music) and therefore her face and stuff are facing you already so it’s easier to initiate things without that flimsy excuse. Of course she could get up and leave but hey, no guts no glory. This one has been pulled on me. A girl had me come over to listen to a rock album, she turned out to be terrible at several things but that’s a story for another day.

The Club

There’s one that is almost as popular as the movie one; asking a girl to go clubbing with you. This is good because it allows you to show her a good time and just how awesome you are to be around. It helps that she’ll be grinding against you all night and you have a good excuse to have your hand all over her body. Alcohol, if she drinks, will lower her inhibitions. I personally don’t like this one too much because of the alcohol part, I’m never sure if she would be me with otherwise and I like know she want this as much as me. Also there’s the fact that it kinda feels rapey and if she’s really drunk it is rape. As with every one of these methods so far I’ve done this one, she wasn’t drunk and it was on this occasion I was accused of breaking a bed the next day (Just to be clear I’m still denying this).

The Cut to the Chase

This one is one that takes a large set of balls. It almost rarely works with someone you’re not already sleeping with. Here is a conversation I’ve had before:

Me: I’m horny.Her: I’m a little occupied with my friends.Me: Okay cool.

Her: (10 minutes later) I’m on my way to my room, meet me there.

I like this one because there’s no pretence and you know exactly what you’re both there for and don’t have to waste time on preliminaries. And just to be clear by preliminaries I’m not talking about foreplay which is really essential, just the other stuff mentioned before.

The Dinner

One that has come to my attention recently but isn’t on versions of this article elsewhere on the interwebs is inviting a girl over for supper. The trick here is to start cooking late so that she’s at your place rather late after being overwhelmed by your awesome cooking skills, while you eat you step up an awesome series. Why a series? Because it’ll already be late and you want to give her justification for staying over. Feeding her puts her in a really comfortable mood. Unfortunately, I’ve never experienced this one because I only ever stayed in a place I could cook in 2nd year and I had a girlfriend then but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a personal story.

I was in second year and I was at my friend’s place in the evening before I had to my place to cook. She mentioned that she was going to be really late coming from some meeting and she wasn’t sure if she’d find any of the cafes in school open and so I did the gentle manly thing and told her that I’d cook enough for the both of us and when she got back she’d find her food ready. I cooked rice, potatoes and carrots (with a secret recipe of course). I didn’t wait for her to be done with her meeting and ate alone. And kept her food heated. She came like 3 hours later looking for her food, which I served her, shirtless for some reason (I’m incredibly comfortable with my naked body, but I can’t really think of a good reason I had no shirt on). She liked it, a lot. “I like it when your abs are defined enough to look like this,” she said running her hand down my abs. “It’s really sexy!” Looking back I wonder if I missed a signal there.

The Divinely Sanctioned

The last one I’ll mention was brought to my attention by someone in my creative club when I told this story (because I’m a storyteller now). I call this one Divinely sanctioned. When the girl is at your place she gets stuck there because of naturally causes, here in Africa it’s just rain, but I imagine elsewhere snow could also be a reason. You take advantage of the cold and darkening sky (there’s something about the dark, right?) and initiate something. Clearly God wanted you to get laid because why’d he trap a beautiful girl in your room right?

These are the main methods I’m aware of, I like to think all others are just variations but if there’s one you feel I’ve missed feel free to mention it in the comments. To cap this off I leave you with a picture of a poster that’s outside my door and the warning to rubber it up, stay sure, safe. Anyone who wants to have unprotected sex is more than just careless, they’re dangerous. Wrap it up. Peace!!!

How To Get Laid At Campus?

PC Tech - Sun, 06/18/2017 - 16:02

Hey guys, I got laid all the time in college, and I wrote up this list to help you, but I didn’t include my best tip.

It’s pretty powerful and can pretty much immediately get you poosy on any university campus.

Congratulations to the high school graduating class of 2017. That high school certificate sure was pretty fucking easy, wasn’t it? It’s almost as if a high school certificate is meaningless. Oh well. Even if graduating high school is so easy a retard could do it, you did manage to accomplish one thing: You escaped the rigid social caste system that was high school. If you weren’t cool and athletic, the last few years for you were torture and you were counting down the minutes before you could start fresh at campus and try your luck with poosy that doesn’t already have a preconception of you as a loser. You can do it. I’m here to help.

First, campus in general is a racket. Unless you’re doing STEM/Finance, you are fucking yourself. Universities today are overpriced machines built to churn out good liberal soldiers all propped up on a bubble of debt. Most University degrees don’t teach anything that will make you successful in life, or anything that positively contributes to the economy in general. Its amazing that sociology departments are ubiquitous but campuses that teach actual sales, negotiating or management skills are rarer than Stradivarius violins. If you are not interested in STEM and would rather make a foray in the business world, absorb the business school courses and make as many connections as you can. Any soft major you take is just wasting your or your parents money. Its either STEM, Finance/Econ, or go to a trade school instead.

With that out of the way, there are several things you can do to maximize your poosy, fun and social success on campus.

Social circle is god. Your status, connections and friendships mean more than anything else in col- lege. The popular, preselected man is forgiven many faults.

Sink your teeth in right away. Start forging relationships immediately with people in your hostel, hall and classes. Everyone in your hostel should know your name after the first week. Go to the mixers, get a poker game going in the lobby, go to the frat parties, knock on doors and introduce yourself to any guys or girls, it doesn’t matter. The other freshman want to meet people, too, and they’ll be happy that someone else is taking the initiative. Don’t eat a meal alone, don’t sit in class without talking to someone. Don’t worry so much about getting pussy these first few weeks, solid relationships and introductions to the right people will pay pussy dividends down the road. My best friend and wingman throughout the 4 years of campus was a guy who lived next door to me that I met before I even started unpacking my things. Your first week is probably your most important week of school.

Join a frat. Frat guys are douchebags. Which is exactly why you should be one. Girls call guys douchebag out of one side of their mouth, while having the guys cock in the other side. Guys who hate on frat guys are jealous of all the pussy those guys get. However, the frat you choose matters. There are always one or two really cool frats that you want to aim for. There are also one or two shit frats full of fags and dorks that you want to stay away from. You want to be seen at the cool frat parties. Bring hot girls from your hostel. Meet frat guys in the university gym, they are usually wearing their letters. Go up and introduce yourself, compliment their parties, tell them you are interested in rushing. Show them you are just a cool guy who can shoot the shit about guy stuff. Mention cool stuff about you but don’t come off as a tryhard or braggart. Find a friend who also wants to rush so you can help each other out in the process. Hint: The coolest, highest status frat on campus usually has a reputation for dabbling in cocaine. The weed frats usually fuck girls a few levels less hot. Just calling it how I see it.

Get hooked up in the bar scene. In most universities, there are one or two prime nightlife bars. Your goal is to get in with the owners and work for them. This is a long term goal since it will be hard (but not impossible) to do when you’re under 21. I”ve noticed at many bars, guys in certain frats have the inside track here. Bouncer jobs are great and just another reason to remain physically fit. Bartenders are more likely to be hot sorority girls, but if you can get a job barbacking or bouncing, take it.

Never miss an opportunity to go out. I stayed in a few nights in campus and I regret it like a motherfucker now. Trust me, when you wake up at 6:30 for work every day, you’ll be pissed that you didn’t go out weeknights when your first class was at 11:45 a.m. the next morning.

You are party central. It goes without saying that you should be hosting parties if you are in a frat, but even if you are not, you want your room or apartment to be a hangout/party place. If this means getting “written up” a few times for having open containers in your room, so fucking be it.

Charm your RAs. Nearly without exception, Resident Assistants are upperclassmen with no friends. They are losers but they do hold some power, so get them on your side. Go to them within the first days and chat, ask them questions and make them feel important. Shit, I’d even invite them to lunch one day and ask them for advice on how to study or on the campus experience general. You don’t need to actually give a shit about their advice. Besides the free room, RAs take that position because they like the status it gives them over the freshman, so let them have it.

Check your gossip. Don’t think that gossip faded after high school. It is still thick in college. Don’t tell people who you fuck. Don’t tell people who you want to fuck. Don’t tell people who you hate. It will get around and around. This goes both ways, too. Keep your mouth shut about your friend’s gossip as well. You are not TMZ or campuseye.

Don’t Commit. You shouldn’t be committing to girls unless you might want to marry them, and you don’t want to marry a girl your own age. Even if you manage to find a girl with a fair age gap, say a young freshman while you are a senior, remember she still has three more years on campus and you’re likely leaving the area, so why get involved? Don’t. I talk to my guy friends all the time about regrets in life, and there’s one common theme : they committed to some girl they wish they didn’t and it caused them to pass up on pussy. Don’t have that regret.

You don’t have to dump your high school girlfriend. Okay, a complete contradiction to the last tip. Also, people with girlfriends probably don’t read my blog. Anyways, remember the beginning of your college life is for forging good social connections, not necessarily getting laid (though you can do both). If you have a girlfriend from home you can make friends and girls won’t feel threatened, making it easy to monkey branch through friendships. Plus it makes you intriguing, forbidden, and preselected. Then suddenly you’re single after first semester when something goes wrong (and it will), and you have a pussy smorgasboard for the spring. I know two guy who enjoyed pussy buffets after they broke up with their high school gfs because they had female “friends” in their classes marinating the whole time.

Get female friends. People think guys and girls can’t be friends. It’s a debate for the ages, but the answer is you better LEARN how, because being friends with girls is an easy way to fuck their friends and get invited to their parties. Hot chicks are also currency that can be used to get into campus bars underage, or to closed frat parties. Remember that where male friendships are built on common interests and respect, male-female friendships are mostly built on good vibes and value.

Be a part of something. If you don’t join a frat, you need to have a niche, and I’d try to make it a sport. Even if you didn’t get recruited, you can join a club sport. These are unsanctioned and less competitive and have less social status but its still better than nothing. I hate to give them credit but the best bet is probably rugby. There will be nudity, but those guys do get laid and with the exception of one or two crazy fucks, they are pretty cool. My most unathletic friend was on the rugby team so don’t think you need to have played football in high school or something. Go to a practice, see if you like it. Most any club sport is better than nothing, but if you choose ultimate frisbee, there’s probably no way I’d be friends with you.

Put less emphasis on cold approaching. A lot of traditional game advice focuses on meeting women through cold approach. Its hard and its focus is one of NECESSITY, not because its optimal. In campus, a place where you can have many interconnected social networks, you don’t need to cold approach, and in fact it may be kind of weird. You meet friends, friends beget more friends, and hot pussy gets introduced to you through friends. There are a couple exceptions: You may need to cold approach a cute girl in one of your classes if you have no social connection to her, and as said before, the first week you arrive on campus, you should be cold approaching both guys and girls to meet them. Even then your focus is on presenting yourself as a cool guy, not Mystery Method. That said, if you see a hot girl you haven’t seen before at a bar or party, don’t say “but Campuseeye told me not to cold approach!”. I’m just saying look for a social connection first. If not, approach.

Get a core group. So far I’ve made it sound like your job will be a lot of social hopping, but nothing is further from the truth. You want a set of 4-5 solid, cool, like-minded guys you can go to battle with. These are your core. You are loyal to your core and they are loyal to you. You bring value to the group and they bring value to you. You will first meet them in your dorm, frat, or sport and you will hang out with them all the time. Choose these friends wisely and cultivate them wisely.

Game your professors. There are a million ways to get extensions on assignments and makeup times for tests and special credit and consideration from professors. If you get below a 3.0, you are either in a course that’s too hard for you, or you are not putting enough effort into gaming the system. One thing that worked great for me was bringing a voice recorder to class and recording the lectures. Some professors love to drop in easter eggs about what will be on the test during their lecture.

All in all, I did a lot wrong in college. I fucked up a lot of my rules above and my game was still in the formative stages, and I still got higher volume pussy in college than any other time in my life. People will tell you it is the best time in your life and you’ll roll your eyes but I’ll be honest, if you do it right, the potential is sky high. Cherish it.
