Just so you know, UBank is owned by NAB.

Interesting claim. Any explanation of how you know this?
02/07/2018 - 09:57
Does this same logic apply to, say, factories? If not, why not?

"... many of these properties don't have a strong incentive to seek a rental return ..." Your theory seems to be that there's a large group...

When thinking about this question, bear in mind something that people often forget: every time someone buys an asset from an Australian...

There's not much evidence of huge amounts of vacant property. And for obvious reasons: it doesn't take much to appoint an agent and rent...

There's actually a good argument that foreign buying pushes land prices up but property prices down. It certainly adds to the pool of money...

Yes, this. Loss of sovereignty simply isn't a risk from allowing foreign purchases of property. Foreign property buyers actually face a...

Thanks OP. I was a little sceptical but we bought the 2nd gen model and are loving what it does to a carpet covered in hair from our newly...

Fair enough. I'm still none the wiser as to how a $44 watch can have "genuine sapphire glass" that the likes of Seiko - who've driven down...

Update: The Watch 9 does appear on Lenovo's China site. No idea what Lenovo is doing claiming that a $40 watch has "sapphire glass", when...
14/05/2018 - 13:42
Quite right. I should have said that it doesn't appear on Lenovo.com. Lenovo seem to be selling it only in the Chinese market on the...

Sorry to be a wet blanket, but the Watch 9 seems quite likely to be a fake. It's just too good for the money. It doesn't appear on the...

The same sort of thing, with the rider that the Withings product exists and the Watch 9 seems quite likely to be a fake - it doesn't appear...

It turns out that rechargeable 2032 batteries are a thing. Who knew?! They are called LIR2032 rather than CR2032. See the [Battery Mart...

Looks great on a leather band. The changeover is doable yourself, or your local watch guy will charge $5. Or you can buy your own watch...

Bought it for my wife as a family Mother's Day gift, so it was only opened today.

Withings Activité Sapphire - Activity and Sleep Tracking Watch - US $128.50 + US $6.96 Shipping (AU $176.85) @ Amazon US
This is easily the lowest price I've seen for the Withings/Nokia flagship smartwatch (or "hybrid smartwatch"). As well as displaying the...

Terrific, no-fuss solar watch with a faint pilot's-watch vibe. The included strap is widely derided but easy to replace at your local...

"...believe the value will go up once discontinued" Railspider believed the same thing about Bitcoin :-)

The Hadley Romas are fine, or you could go nuts and buy a Fluco Vigo (https://www.ebay.com.au/i/331734552344) - beautiful, eye-catching,...

[@Suspect420](/comment/5614463/redir): Us OzBargainers naturally reject the sanity of buying a $15,000 watch - but that is a very tasteful...

It depends on your preferences, but 45mm is right at the large end and would generally be for very big wrists only, even taking account of...

The Celestions were noted for both sound and build quality and plenty of people still seem to enjoy them. You are right about the ageing...

Really? Would you say this to a woman you knew offline? More broadly, is anyone else prepared to call this sort of thing out?

This the tragedy of the LG G4 bootloop issue. It rightly ruined the reputation of what would otherwise been one of the great phones of all...

Probably, yes. More interoperable with more systems e.g. Google Fit, and from Amazon reviews etc it seems to be better-made as well.
