Olympus, long-time creator of quality dictation devices has recently launched an Android App for dictation. So too did Philips. If you were inclined to say "yes, that is a great idea," pause for a second and consider that Olympus has between two and five thousand downloads while Philips has over 10 thousand. This might sound a considerable number but compared with popular apps, these numbers are outright embarrassing - to add further insult to these numbers, are the countless masses of trusty dictaphones that are still being used globally.

It was back in the early 1980s when Mr Clem Sunter, subsequently CEO of Anglo American Corporation, took to the public speaking circuit with an influential presentation of alternative scenarios for South Africa. There was a "high road" and there was a "low road". For South Africa, a choice had to be made.

The wording of a contact is always of fundamental importance. Nevertheless, the meaning and intention which underpins the words can sometimes be of even greater significance. A number of recent judgements handed down by the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) have addressed the manner in which contracts should be interpreted.

Some time ago I watched the "Speak Out" reality show broadcast on an SABC channel. The subject of the programme was a colleague who had transferred a property and failed to pay the seller 'the purchase price'. My attention was captured and the programme set me thinking about how trust accounts are being operated by attorneys. The recurring question was: how can we improve the safety of trust monies?

Prior to the Extension of Security of Tenure Act (62 of 1997) (ESTA) being introduced in 1997, farm owners were not restricted in their rights to evict persons dwelling on their land.

The Competition Appeal Court (CAC) recently delivered a judgement which gives direction on the approach of competition authorities towards members of cartels that rely on their passive participation to deny liability. The decision in Reinforcing Mesh Solutions (Pty) Ltd and Vulcania Reinforcing (Pty) Ltd v The Competition Commission and Others confirms that passive constitutes being a party to a cartel.

I have written many times about what a privilege it is to mentor. It is something I relish and provides me with the most job satisfaction I can imagine. For many years my work in this area consisted mostly of meeting talented, good people needing some encouragement, support or direction as they developed their careers. It was never all positive; when someone is unemployed, overlooked or even bullied there are tough conversations and some difficult things to hear but the tone was nearly always about taking action, reconciling disappointment and moving forward.
