    • I dont - if they had properly patented and licensed the wireless technology we would call be retired on the royalties by now

        What, in your expert opinion, did they do wrong?

        My understanding was that the patents were infringed, they went through a very expensive legal process but got a fat stack of cash in the end.

  • Hiya, just wondering if you include an itemised bill/receipt in the delivery? Want to purchase a pretty exxy book for a friend but don't want them to know how much it was! Sometimes there's an option for "this order is a gift" so the invoice isn't sent but I couldn't find it! Thanks :)

      Thanks for reaching out to us, and great question.

      As you go through the online checkout, please leave a note in the Special Instructions box that this order is a gift and you don't want an invoice to be sent with the book. Our customer service team will take care of the rest!

  • Some of the books I looked at were cheaper on Amazon than through the CSIRO Publishing site.

    This post prompted me to explore them though, so there's that.

    • Personally, I'd rather have my dollars go towards CSIRO than Bezos' pocket.

      The book I'm interested in, "The Plastic Banknote", is $21 inc. shipping as opposed to Amazon's $55.89.

    • "The CSIRO Healthy Gut Diet" is $19 at BigW with shipping.

  • Australian Longhorn Beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) Volume 1 from 2013 for $100, bargain!
