Big disclaimer required on these units -- half the features advertised are not available yet. Yamaha promised they would become available...

For an extra $1.14, you could order this from the official Baseus australian eBay store, and get free express shipping and probably better...

I asked my dentist about water-flossing devices, and he said the evidence was bad. They don't work effectively, and you end up with plaque...

Be warned, these amps have had a significant problem with, I think, the Xbox Series X units. And the HDMI 2.1 features are vapourware and...

Seems like a lot of the good features are still vapourware -- when is this promised "future firmware update" actually arriving?

I have a pair of VAF DC-X speakers, that look vaguely like these JBL Arena ones. (The VAFs have the tweeter in-between a pair of woofers....

I have a pair of heavily used Ryobi batteries from 2012 which mostly gave up the ghost in 2020 -- eight years of use. No complaints there!

Do these fit under a motorcycle helmet OK? (All the "true wireless" ones are too big around the ears)

If you're curious, here's a link to a whirlpool thread:

I was looking to buy a LiFePO4 battery recently, and was doing quite a bit of research online. (I ended up getting a Renogy) I'm pretty...

I suspect you meant to call it a "Multi-Angle" device? An Angel is a supernatural being in religions and mythologies.

Does not appear to be available anymore? (Can't actually get through checkout)
30/04/2020 - 14:20
I don't think this is a great deal -- you can buy a _brand new_ 25-27" monitor for $149 (eg. Viewsonic, AOC), and it'll have modern...

Might be worth mentioning that the scooter is illegal to ride in public in Victoria. To be legal in Victoria, an electric scooter must have...

Interesting. Looks like it's a 10% discount, but including the build-to-order options? I was hoping to get something that includes a...

I really want a 13" MacBook with 16GB of RAM, because 8GB seems ridiculously small (and as a dev I tend to have Docker running and chewing...

Has anyone tried wearing these under a motorcycle helmet? How much do they stick out from the ear?

"Using browser based ad blockers still load the content, and then removes that content from the page." That's not true of any decent ad...

These things aren't even close to their advertised speeds -- neither AV1000 or AV2000. Google around for performance reviews, and generally...

Does this generation of G5 laptops support charging over the thunderbolt port? (My current XPS supports it, as does my work laptop and...

Not really -- I have a different Dell with the same graphics chipset, and it is struggle-town for gaming. Eg. "Gwent" and "Thronebreaker"...
20/03/2019 - 16:33
As far as I can tell, the alternatives with well-reviewed sound quality are more than twice the price. If you want to listen to music, I'd...

Correct -- it should do almost everything that Google Home does, apart from phone calls.

Sonos have Google Assistant coming to their speakers in "Early 2019" -- it's in beta currently.
15/03/2019 - 11:13
Reviews haven't been favourable. Poor sound quality compared to the competition.

Has this post expired? When I go to the Deal page, it shows a USD$198 item, without Prime support for shipping either.

LOL Last time I tried GIMP, the interface was unusable on a hidpi screen. Krita was a bit more functional
