iPhone 6 plus plan from whom?

Am still waiting for an iPhone from Telstra 6 weeks after ‘registering interest’. They have a nice plan to go with it. Supposedly.

Possible ramifications for public servants from health insurance selloff

Canberra Home Delivery Food?

I’ve just moved to Canberra and quite like it… except for the take-away and home delivery choices (or at least those I’ve found so far). Why does Pad Thai cost $16.50 (Lemon Grass)?

Buying a new car – should it have a full tank of petrol?

I’m interested on hearing thoughts on this, I recently purchased a new car from a dealer in Phillip that shall remain nameless (although it does rhyme with shommonwealth boaters).  Anyway, I went to pick it up and when the salesperson was handing over the keys and going through some features (its pretty sick), I had [...]

“What better celebration of independent world cinema than to tear Hollywood to shreds?”  Canberra International Film Festival director Lex Lindsay is introducing the opening night movie, David Cronenberg’s “Maps to the Stars.”  It’s a bold choice: Cronenberg is known for the haunting and grotesque images of movies such as Scanners and Videodrome and Maps to [...]
