Google Street View South Africa being followed?

While mapping out a route to one of our customers in Johannesburg, South Africa, I noticed the same vehicle appearing in almost all the images...

With certain areas in Johannesburg being straight out dodgy I'm assuming Google hired a security company to "covertly" follow the Google Street View car and keep it safe... Who knows?

Samsung G3 station inside and fix...

Being lazy never pays off for me yet I endulge in it regularly! This week I left our Samsung G3 station on the floor with the USB cable connected and someone/something bumped it enough to break off the connector inside the casing...

The clips are pretty hellish to open-up with plastic clips all round, a flat screwdriver from the side with the connectors worked for me!

The PCB can be cleaned around the where the connector was and soldered to the surrounding area. The connector itself has very small pins, with a bit of luck you can solder it back on and use a multimeter to test, I used hot glue to secure it for future wear and tear.
