Not yet, they're really stringing it out until the maximum amount of time allowed in the T&C's

USB 3.1 Gen 1 is exactly the same thing as USB 3.0, just with marketing.

‘Up to’ 150MB/s for reads, likely less than half that on writes.

‘Only get’ is a bit misleading you won’t get anywhere near 5Gb/s no matter what you plug it into, there’s only 1 or 2 external SSDs...

When I was looking the other day certain sellers (I think Jetstar, because of course they are) are charging fees for using PayPal, I assume...

Actually seems on-par with good deals in the past, at least for the worst rooms.

I have 2 units with the pipework run through the ceiling and the condensate draining down through the floor (garage/drainage below). Just a...

The new ones are worse in every respect. Long term when they're a bit older, I'd expect them to be cheaper. Eg, in ~12 months time I'd...

Nah, it was a couple of months ago, lots of concrete cutting with NBN logo on the signs blocking footpaths. Some places had the same but...

You can tech choice your way out of FTN to FTTP, sure it might cost $20k, but you can do it. If you get HFC you're stuck.
18/01/2019 - 12:30
They're clearly doing more than just lead-ins in terms of rectification. In my area, there are about 90% unit blocks 10% houses. Most of...

There's no tech choice option if they've chosen HFC for your address. The option to even pay for another technology was another government...
17/01/2019 - 21:54
Except OP is getting HFC with all the drilling. I'd kill for FTTP but am getting the same as OP. I'd still maim for that considering what...

NBN is running heaps of new Coaxial cable through apartments, it's not FTTP. It's just bonkers that they're doing all this drilling,...

If you have two companies who know that their competitor will match their price if they lower it, it removes the incentive to lower the...
14/01/2019 - 17:34
The problem is that while you don't perceive it to be collusion, it in effect is on aggregate. Lowering your price is supposed to give you...
14/01/2019 - 14:09
The problem is that it looks like in one specific instance it's better for the consumer, but in aggregate it's not. If Telstra always...
14/01/2019 - 14:02
Yeah technically it is. Not illegal to beat it, but if every provider just agrees on what 'the price' is, as a whole it's going to be...
14/01/2019 - 14:00
They're doing a price beat, which isn't the same thing.
14/01/2019 - 13:56
They're doing a price BEAT vs a price match. A price beat is the opposite of price fixing. Price matching means you don't gain any...

Personally, love this one I bought ($19.95) https://www.bagworld.com.au/shop/detail/high-sierra-impact-backpack-black-53627/ It's not the...

If you have prime. Prime is $4.99 this month so guess that's the cap for what you have to pay to get it shipped.
13/01/2019 - 20:01
13.5 L :o these are tiny.
13/01/2019 - 19:49
Yeah, the expensive part isn't the gas if you want anything other than soda water, unfortunately. If I wasn't also looking for sugar-free...
10/01/2019 - 11:45
The annoying part of this is in a small apartment (no garage) I have nowhere to realistically store enough containers (even cans) to make...

Yeah the mini 1 > mini 2 was a huge upgrade.

My only regret was cheaping out on the 16GB version. That got painful fast. But not painful enough to stop me still using it this much...
