Sad. My pebble battery died & the new one I soldered in also failed. No other watch has come close to what Pebble had. I now use a Withings...

To be fair, JB & HN are also $49 so Sony might just have dropped the RRP.

Yes. From memory, those were the only two brands I could find that would do this.

We went with a Miele because it was one of the few on the market that would spin both directions, reducing the chance of clothes getting...

How can you tell if it’s a fake copy? How would I protect myself from buying one accidentally?
16/04/2019 - 20:08
Just did a quick google search and found this as an example. Looks like this is a setting once per PDF:...

Never used an iPad for this purpose, just for chord and lyric charts. However, don’t forget that an A4 sheet has white space margins &...

Wouldn't the sticker be on the inside of the helmet?

It's probably reasonable fraying from wear & tear, but every now & then, Apple surprises with free replacements. I must say that it's a...

No problems. But you had me excited there for a while!

Thanks @mefresh. Where did you find that? I can only find purchase protection, which is for theft, loss, damage, and refund protection, for...

Yeah, that's what the guy on the phone said to do. If I'd thought of that earlier, I would have just purchased the new one at 50% off, then...

Bugger, ordered an 87W adapter a few days ago. Rang Myer. It's on the dock for shipping so too late to cancel. They can't apply the current...

But eBay doesn’t take the payment. The payment goes to the seller, or via their agent (PayPal).
28/03/2019 - 22:40
Hmm, good point. If Amazon AU is just a marketplace, shouldn't my payment go directly to Amazon US? My credit card statements seem to...

From https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=202045290, the ACL still applies: "Nothing in these Conditions of Sale,...

I agree. My experience with Amazon has been the opposite of the OP. I haven't had the specific issue that the OP has stated, but generally...

> How do you get paid if you don't get feed in credit? Why don’t you get feed in credit?
22/03/2019 - 23:16
> A hybrid isn’t designed for long distance driving not hypermiling. True. In long distance driving, there is less of an advantage over a...

Your “fuel” isn’t free. You forgot to factor in the lost grid feed-in credit.
21/03/2019 - 19:27
Spot on! Of course, if you could predict traffic enough to coast to a stop rather than use the brake, that would be hypermiling champion...
21/03/2019 - 10:07
Good question. The hybrid system allows the petrol motor to turn off when it would be most inefficient, eg. when idle. So, if you're...

In "standard" driving mode, there's a noticeable delay between slamming the foot down & the acceleration surge kicking in, from a rolling...

Agree wtih the "seamless driving experience". I went from a previous manual 6-cyl sports car to a hybrid CVT. Took a bit of getting used...

Happy to see FAO Schwartz back in action. It was sad to see the NYC store close down a few years ago.
12/03/2019 - 17:59
That’s not true. My business has one site that uses an eftpos machine that doesn’t take tap card. Must be a chip card.

Well, I managed to get into a chat with Optus about the NBN installation. The rep said the date is given to them by NBN Co, & all they have...
