Hot Topics

Election & The NBN

Last weekend, we had a change in government. While it seems the majority of Australia is happy with the Liberal party in charge, there is no joy at the Liberal’s NBN plan. Under the previous Labor government, they pushed  FTTH (Fiber to the Home) whereas the Liberal government is pushing FTTN (Fiber to the Node). While using FTTN will save money for the government, this will also result in slower speeds compared to FTTH.

Kogan Price Error

A Samsung Galaxy S4 4G for $439 delivered? Sounds too good to be true. The deal was posted on September 10 at 6PM. Kogan’s customer service seemed to indicate at the time that the price was correct and not an error. The deal was at 600 votes and was on track to be one the most popular deals on OzBargain. The next day Kogan went into hiding, deleting tweets that indicated that the deal was legit and not responding to questions on whether it was a price error. Later on the 11th, emails were sent out canceling the order. This was no coffee mug part II but at least Ruslan will have another OzBargain story for Shoptalk.

Melbourne Meetup

The original Melbourne meetup was scheduled for May of this year. The day before the event, council revoked Bumper Action’s function license and we were forced to cancel the event. Bumper have moved into new premises a couple blocks closer to the city. They are putting the finishing touches on their new location and we hope to start planning a redo meetup in October.

Picture of the Week


Choice is running a campaign to help consumers spot fake merchandise. The counterfeiters are getting a lot better at creating fake products that are very difficult to discern from the real merchandise. However, there are always little things that give it away. Can you spot the fake?
