PCs are great, but often they feel like they're made for another species besides humanity. Each additional cord you plug in adds a new cord for you to manage and untangle. They're customisable, but it's intimidating to open one up and start pulling out its guts. That big ol' display on your desk takes up a lot of counter space. Luckily, you can reclaim the real estate on your desk, replace your mess of cables with a one-stop connection shop, and put everything in its place to improve your quality of life (and that crick in your neck) with these must-have accessories to your workspace.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Today, Amazon finally released its Echo smart speaker range in Australia. With multiple versions hitting store shelves at the same time, there's a lot for prospective buyers to unpack before making a purchasing decision. Here's a rundown of each model, with links to buy.
Now that Amazon's Echo has been launched locally, we have a full set of premium speakers that can be used as home assistants that can listen to our commands and pander to our beck and call. So, how does it stack up against Google's Home and the Apple HomePod, which hits the stores tomorrow? Let's take a look.
Dear Lifehacker, I have a few friends' birthdays coming up so figured I'd give Amazon Australia a try. I was particularly intrigued by the free delivery offer for orders over $49 - this means I can order multiple presents in one go and not get slugged with any shipping fees. Or so I thought.
Amazon is not content with driving online shopping forward and forcing traditional retailers to play catch up. Today, the company is opening its bricks and mortar food store to the public. There are no checkouts or cash registers - just products and wide aisles that make browsing easy for customers.
If you're not interested in splashing out some cash on one of Amazon's Alexa devices but want to use the shopping giant's voice assistant then you'll be able to install it on your Windows PC. Amazon will be integrating Alexa with Microsoft's Cortana, with a new app available. While it's just for US users initially, we can expect it here and in other countries soon, with PCs from Acer, Asus, HP and Lenovo among the first to get support.
Amazon's entry into Australia last year was underwhelming, but the company continues to shore up its local storefront in a bid to tempt shoppers. Part of that includes Amazon Prime, a paid subscription service that provides users with extra benefits, such discounts, deals and even streaming video. So, what does Prime have to offer Australians?
The day we've been waiting for is finally here - we can finally pre-order the Amazon Echo, welcoming her into our homes in early February.
But what exactly will the Aussie Alexa, with her new 'strayn accent, be able to do?
On December 5 2017, Amazon Australia opened its virtual doors, in the dead of night. After weeks of speculation and rumour, credit cards were unleashed and bargains were ready to be hunted. Amazon didn't make any huge promises, but Aussies expected a lot from the 800-pound gorilla once they landed on our shore.
One month on, how does Amazon Australia look?
Amazon and Google have been duking it out for the past few months, and it doesn't look like the two companies will come to an agreement anytime soon. Earlier this month, Google announced plans to pull its YouTube app from Amazon's Fire TV streaming devices starting on January 1. Thankfully, there's a solution waiting in the wings.
The initial response to Amazon Australia's launch a couple of weeks ago was mostly disappointment, with a hint of optimism. There weren't a lot of quality deals to be found, but video games and consoles were offered at really competitive prices that made a few people take notice.
So it's no surprise that Amazon Australia's top ten products since launch heavily feature video games and video game accessories - with a couple of books thrown in for good measure.
The online shoppers of Australia have perused Amazon's offerings. And they have found them wanting. With very few exceptions, the deals on TVs, laptops and other gadgets have been hugely underwhelming. The cake was a lie.
If you're looking to pick up some Blu-rays or video games for Christmas though, Amazon is well worth a look. In fact, it has some of the cheapest prices in Australia. Here are a few stocking-stuffers for your consideration.
Amazon has officially launched in Australia - and the results have been pretty underwhelming. Instead of recession-busting bargains and mass mercantile disruption, we got prices that were... kinda okay.
While there are some decent deals in the offing, the majority of prices are only slightly better than traditional retail - and others are worse. Much, much worse.
The launch of Amazon Australia was supposed to be a game-changing event that redefined retail pricing for the whole nation. Instead, its arrival went down like a huge wet fart.
The chief disappointment was price - but that's not all that left us feeling miffed. Here are six things we hated about Amazon Australia's launch.
