Pfftt Xbox had that last month https://majornelson.com/2017/01/24/xbox-live-games-with-gold-for-february-2017/

If you travel then you can use the $400 annual credit you'd have spent anyway to offset the card cost each and every year. If you won't...

I find very few places do that, and of those that do many surcharge MasterCard or Visa too (possibly at a lower rate). Your call but I like...
28/03/2017 - 20:11
Anyone know whether they generally follow that term? Is it likely you'd get the points anyway or not?
28/03/2017 - 19:02
I think they are asking why are other card types shown. I don't have an issue there, although it'd be good if the referral link the deal...
28/03/2017 - 18:42
Never had an issue. Most will know what activity is on based on whats on the TV. You can always just click the activity button again. If...

Wouldn't hold my breath. Most cleared out stock ages ago and there's not a huge volume of consoles out there to keep a second hand market...

The app also gets updates independent of the Xbox.
23/03/2017 - 14:29
I imagine they'd look to roll the most useful functions into the OS + Siri + Home App etc eventually.
23/03/2017 - 14:27
That and they have the exclusives this gen that people seem interested in. MS seems to have the same Halo + Gears + Forza trio happening...
23/03/2017 - 09:18
Sony has the market share so I'd assume MS is looking to compete on price. I'm not a retailer so I can't say, but perhaps the cost price...
22/03/2017 - 22:44
Yeah I doubt we'll see much of a hardware price reduction. Best bet might be gumtree or eBay if someone's offloading their old one. On that...
22/03/2017 - 14:31
I think it's a great console but if those are the games you are waiting for you can wait. I suspect the 'issues' being reported have been...
22/03/2017 - 10:52
Nice to know. Too bad the HD has a RRP over twice that of the Pro here.
21/03/2017 - 14:37
[@Domingo](/comment/4541245/redir): I can't recommend a device but I'm fairly sure I've seen EoP devices that terminated in a wireless...
21/03/2017 - 14:33
Does the router need to do anything during those off times? If not you could possibly just get a $10 AC Timer and turn the entire device...
21/03/2017 - 12:56
Yeah they are generally powered over ethernet (unsure but they may also allow another power source). You could in theary use a Ethernet...
21/03/2017 - 11:46
Yeah you can. One LAN is for input and power, other is for network extension. Caveat is you're adding a potential failure point to the...
21/03/2017 - 10:07
On Point 1 from memory the Pro uses some standard so it should be ok, but do check. For point 2 they certainly can all share the same SSID...
21/03/2017 - 08:59
If you can't hard wire I'd look at Mesh products. Part of the appeal of the APs is doing that hard wiring and having them run using PoE....
21/03/2017 - 00:07
Are Anker classified as a no name brand? Their stuffs a bit hard to find locally and many or all don't have AU power plugs, but they seem...
20/03/2017 - 12:46
[@easternculture](/comment/4537036/redir): it'd have to also be in a completely different colour given these were not available as gen 1. I...
19/03/2017 - 23:13
Could be the fact they're a superseded model too. Might have got them cheap as a result.
19/03/2017 - 21:32
Last I looked about two weeks ago the same engineer highly rated at least some of the Apple cables, fwiw. Stress relief can be an issue but...
13/03/2017 - 14:12
Yep. Was a promo until the 14th or so going from memory. JoyCons are $99 too and a few other things a bit cheaper.
11/03/2017 - 10:38
I haven't played 1-2 so can't comment on whether it's good or bad, but it doesn't look like my sort of thing or that it'd have staying...
09/03/2017 - 12:39
[@BNN](/comment/4508258/redir): just because the JoyCon are "fine", that doesn't mean the Pro aren't an improvement. It's not essential but...
09/03/2017 - 10:28
[@brownbag](/comment/4507961/redir): it's definitely a good way to go about it from a value perspective so if it ticks the boxes then...
