Google’s launch of the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X overnight had one drawback, with no availability or pricing information for the phones given by Google. We did manage to see a ‘Starting from’ price for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, but a look at the source code actually reveals almost all the information you want. All the phones are[Read More...]

How does 379 USD becomes 659 AUD?
And all that for 2gb ram. They will sell as much nexus 6 they sold on that price. This will (should) quickly go down to 499 AUD in order to start selling.

Australia’s worst ever Communications Minister, who preferred copper to fibre-optics, is pitching himself as The Prime Minister for Innovation!!

#australia   #abbot   #turnbull   #nbn   #innovation   #straya  
Malcolm Turnbull has used his first brief comments as Australia’s 29th Prime Minister to emphasise that Australia is facing disruption driven by technology, and that the nation needs to work to take advantage of that trend rather than rejecting it.

I'm not surprised Chromebooks aren't successful in Australia when they cost nearly twice as much as US price!

Definitely worth the 5 stars as it hasn't disappointed yet... Even though they don't offer poached eggs, the "parmesan not-so-scrambled eggs" @ $20 was a very satisfying dish that I will definitely order again. The place was very busy and their service suffered, extremely understaffed! I'll definitely give it another go, but very early in the morning to avoid the queue!

Great place for breakfast and buying from an amazing selection of breads, olive bread being my favourite. Love coming to this place enjoying a good breakfast then taking some quality bread back home thinking I can make such a great breakfast now that I have the bread! (Mine never end up that great!) You can't go pass the poached eggs with side of bacon! This place might be out of your way, but it's worth it. PS: prepare to wait a little for a seat & ur food!
