Other countries force them to sell a percentage of electric cars, but Australia doesn't, so those other countries get first preference.

I meant it more about bailing out businesses rather than bailing out individuals. If the government has to prop up business to stop it...

I don't really see the point of this over an electric scooter - except that this is really cheap for some reason.

Bailouts should be buyouts. If the government is putting money in then they would be getting equity. The US actually made money bailing out...

The switch from 4:3 to 16:9 was generally keeping the same height but making the display wider. Gaming monitors seem to be keeping the...

I run on 30hz just fine. The Dell laptop I have from work doesn't do 60hz over hdmi, and the 4k TV I'm using doesn't have DP. Personally I...

yeah, IIRC it has a browser and office365. I guess that takes care of about 80% of peoples' jobs.

Yeah, apparently removing a third of the pixels will help you "enjoy your gaming graphics". I never understood the desire for ultrawide...

It's funny how you think you know nothing interesting and then it turns out the very specific knowledge you do have is very well received....

Thanks for that. I recently had pretty good luck using a hire one from Bunnings (it was an emergency), so it's interesting that a steam...

Don't hurry. Our kids never really liked the pram, so they were carried in a sling wrap when they were tiny, then a baby bjorn type thing...

I should cancel my family health insurance, have you seen how cheap you can get new families from Ukraine, Philippines, or Afghanistan?

I've gone down a lot of gravel roads on 600cc and 1000cc sports bikes with full fairings. The only time I've baulked and turned around was...

Sure, you can have it for $50, but let me just duck out the back and add some special sauce to it for you.

I also use a system like this. I don't have the listed ugreen one, but I have another generic one. I plug all my peripherals into a hub,...

Normal police, as long as they've had the relevant training, can also judge your speed and issue a fine.

The federal debt will suddenly be a crisis again, just like it was in 2013, despite the federal debt having quadrupled under the LibNat...

Yes, they're not a typical tax deduction, but they're a deduction against the gains of the item.

I guess it depends on how much you plan on trading. I use Selfwealth, but others have pointed out that there are others which are cheaper....

I never understood negative gearing (the reason for it, not the mechanics of it). If I have a job, but also have a small business on the...

No idea about bicycle tyres, but these things don't put out air at a very fast rate, so I wouldn't could on it. You can get a much faster...

Spend $10k on a bike to save 2kg. Buy a 2kg lock to secure it.
