Flood wiring with cat 6 now would be quite cheap, though fibre blown through conduits is also a possibility for a future when you have 16K...

Look out "The Demon Seed" - its a different film, but same smart house premis.

Just get a bip and have a longer battery life as well.

Thing is, all that heat needs to escape, hence the need for plenty of air gap. They are usually quite generous with spaces, but if there is...

I have the Prime App on it, and its working fine - just at a lower resolution as far as I can tell. Probably the same widevine issue. Not a...

Yeah, but if you are coming from a Nexus, massive processing power is hardly the expectation. There is enough. The bigger problem, for...

Actually they put orders into a 'you can't cancel now' state well before they ship them. I've personally seen over a day before.

I've used about 4GB in 4 months, and that's using data for maps, video, etc. My guess is always that you have an app doing something in the...

There is an issue with Telstra and essentially having to take a detour to get there. However it's well known now, its just a faff. Others...

Remember Highwaymen of old? Assume the only thing the traffic cops are interested in is making money.

In general customer support for IT tends to be poor, but it's a german company and practically you are more likely to drop a laptop than...

For your purposes I would suggest that maxing out the CPU in a laptop is key. I'd therefore suggest the XMG APEX 15 with the 16 core/ 32...

In general aussie tradies are terrible for double glazing - you'd think it was gold or something. For soundproofing you are better off with...

Get it remeasured and redrafted - the likelihood with australian tradies is the as-built bears little relationship to the as-designed...

Multiple options on the app front, plus connection through to the usual suspects for fitness. Recharging becomes not an issue. When it...

Wait for the next gen to come out and the prices of this to come down. I'd say a 6 core processor should be under $200.

Amazfit Bip Over a month of battery life, always on display, GPS, all the usual fitness bits, etc.

If nobody buys it, maybe they will finally drop the price. It's been at this level for ages and by now it really should be $199.

Well, my 65R7 has it ....

AFAIK Hisense have had Prime Video for ages, along with Netflix and Stan. The main issue is that since its not Android TV, support for...
