  1. Amazon Australia Launch: Everything You Need To Know [Updated]
    Amazon is potentially days away from launching its online retail service in Australia. This means that you will soon be able to buy everything from food to electronics without paying exorbitant international shipping fees. As the launch inches closer, more and more questions are being answered about Amazon’s arrival in the Great Southern Land.
  2. Why You Don’t Need An iPhone X, Or Any Other Expensive New Phone
    Hold on just a moment before you drop $1579 (or more!) on an iPhone X – or another expensive phone from Samsung, Google, or anyone else. Do you really need that flagship handset? The list of reasons not to buy one of the latest and most expensive phones gets longer every year.
  3. 5 Books Elon Musk Thinks Everyone Should Read
    SpaceX founder Elon Musk reminds us of Marvin from The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy. In addition to being a perpetually miserable robot from outer space (citation needed), he also has a brain the size of a planet. But how did he get so gosh-darned smart?
  4. Amazon Australia Could Be Delayed Until 2018, Insider Claims
    At a recent industry event in Melbourne, the official launch date of Amazon Australia was again speculated on and the news isn’t good for Christmas shoppers. According to market research firm Kantar Retail, we could be in for an even longer wait than we thought.
  5. Qantas Foot Nets: The Best Change To Economy Class In Years
    Qantas recently added the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to its fleet. The new plane features a revamped economy class seat with a special foot net. We’ve tried it out, and it’s like having an ottoman where you can prop up feet on a long flight.

    We’ve speculated, analysed and wondered just when Amazon Australia was going to launch. Now we have a clear indication from the online shopping giant itself, courtesy of an email that went out to Amazon Marketplace sellers.

  8. Here’s When Android 8.0 Oreo Is Coming To Your Current Phone

  9. Planhacker: Using 4G As An NBN Alternative
    Just when it seemed like the NBN rollout was finally going to plan.
  10. OLED TVs Are About To Get Even Cheaper
    The new high dynamic range 165-centimetre OLED televisions from Panasonic and Sony will stop you in your tracks. They’re stunning. Pin-sharp definition, beautiful colour balance (to my eye the Sony has a fractional edge) and detail just a tad short of real life.
