Zimbabwean deportations, Township Clashes and Wi-fi Picture Frames

Related to yesterday's story, from allafrica news: SA Deports 3 067 Zimbabweans
Interestingly, Zimbabwe, on the other hand, is also in the process of finalising the deportation of more than 20 illegal immigrants from Rwanda, Pakistan, Mozambique, Liberia and Nigeria. Nationals from these countries, according to the Department of Immigration, have always managed to sneak into the country without proper travel documents.
Life has to be pretty rough if sneaking into Zimbabwe is an improvement.

Two dead in SA Township clashes -
According to public radio SABC, Zimbabweans and Mozambicans were the foreigners involved in the fighting... Some in South Africa are resentful of African migrants - accusing them of taking scarce jobs... This influx since the end of apartheid has led to a rise in xenophobia.
Just like in the good ole U.S. of A.

This is very cool indeed: a Wifi Picture frame -
The eStarling frame is a standalone Wi-Fi LCD photo frame that connects to a wireless network and automatically displays photos e-mailed to it in a slideshow format. Additionally you can specify an RSS photo feed from Flickr based on your own tagged keywords...
