On a recent thread, a user wrote about how they were frustrated that they were not able to get a Telstra $30 sim card for $10 . He pondered whether he can just buy it now, await another sale, refund the original, and buy again for the sale price. Sure, I guess you can but […]

Woke up to a great bargain this morning. ShoppingSquare has won HitWise‘s Australia Top 10 Online Store, so they are offering $1 Postage Site-wide until Monday 21st January, excluding the Computer IT category!

HP Colour LaserJet for Under $150

I like to talk about my ever-so-reliable laser printer, a Brother monochrome that has lasted me almost 8 years now and is still going strong. Paid around $600 back in 2000 and thought it was a bargain. Colour laser printer? You probably need a budget of a small car back in 2000 to ever consider […] Free Delivery Until 20 December

Getmac Free Shipping with PayPal

I blogged about Getmac over here more than 2 years ago, when it wasn’t even known as Getmac. It was the cheapest authorised Apple reseller in Australia that I could find back then, and it probably still is although I have not been tracking the price lately. An EDU discount can probably still be cheaper, […] Free Delivery with PayPal This Weekend

Ever since Apple iPhone was released in US back in June, there has been a great anticipation on when it is going to be released in Australia. According to unofficial sources on the Internet, we probably will not see this most desirable Apple gadget in Australia until sometime in 2008. Moreover it is likely that […]
