It must be gadget buying season…
iPhone, Wii, EeePC, Tivo
The 10" EeePC1000 is out and about here in Australia. JB Hi-Fi have them for $698 which is a good deal as far as I can tell. I wanted a Dell XPS1330 or a Mac Book. Lately the choice has grown, HP, Toshiba, and Dell with the Studio all offer laptops which look the goods… Now the EeePC1000 is also available.
It is really a shame that the Rudd government to away the tax loophole for laptops.
The Tivo is finally coming to Australia… no ad skip and a fee at a later date to turn on the networking. Why can’t they just make these things easy and not try to squeeze every last cent out of the consumers?
Well it seems everyone is having a toy sale. Big W, K Mart, Target, and Myer. The XBox is on sale, someone even has it for $299!!
My house wants a Wii… yes we don’t have one yet. I know it is hard to believe… They are on “sale” but are sold out EVERYWHERE!
Not much of a discount either, I think $388 is the best price I’ve seen. I guess we’ll take the plunge this weekend and hunt one down.
iPhone goes on sale tomorrow and the only network that really have 3G where I live is Telstra. Now, I have shares in these guys and I want them to make money but I don’t like been ripped off and so far they are the only Australian network not to release pricing information…
Their website is the worst out of all the players and I almost expect them to have got some crazy customisations done to the software to make it Telstra-ish.
I guess we will find out tomorrow at 8 am…
