    $0.38.143 cents What measurement system is this!?

      Yes.

        It's a typo. It should read that the "price per litre is rising to AUD$0.38.143 cents per 1000 millilitres."

    I created an account just so I could say:

    "$0.38.143 cents", are you serious? I think we deserve an apology.

    Gizmodo does not mention any of these launching in Australia...

    Kogan Technologies is selling the LG Google Nexus 5 for $409.

    You realise it's $399 directly from Google, right?

    EDIT: Looks like the Kogan thing is a pack that includes a lot of stuff you probably won't need. Still, reasonable deal I guess.
