    My friend is starting a business working from home and money is tight. She wants to be able to accept credit card payments through her website, phone etc but the $60 monthly bank fees for being a merchant and having the eftpos machine or swiper is a bit rich for her at the moment. She's...

    Coffee Machines

    Wow! How confusing is it to buy a coffee machine! There seems to be a huge number of brands and models out there all with varying price tags yet they all do the same thing. Make a cup of coffee from a capsule. Can anyone make it clearer for me please? I'm just looking for the type that...

    3D Movies & 3D Glasses

    I bought a Smart LED 3D TV this week which came with 2 pairs of 3D glasses (battery operated). I've also kept the 3D glasses (non battery operated) from a few visits to 3D movies at the theatre and have about 3 pairs. How come these ones 'work' at the movies but not by watching 3D on my TV?

    Anybody Here Making Apps?

    Yeah yeah I know everybody has a killer app idea that will make millions, but I think I actually do. The few people I've shared the idea with have just been quiet for a few moments while they take it all in then a light bulb goes off and they go "Jesus, that's a real winner" or "that's got...

    Removing Window Tinting

    One of my car windows has a rough, crackly surface - I can scrape the stuff off. I'm assuming it's the window tinting. It looks awful and I want to remove it. Is there a solvent that will do this? My friend has a similar problem with a sheet of tinted film on one of her bedroom windows that...

    New Neighbours-New Headache?

    Easter Sunday afternoon new neighbours moved into the rental 2 doors over from me. When the truck arrived they blew the truck horn for a full 30 seconds and they got out hooping and hollering. It didn't really bother me but it was a very quiet Easter Sunday until they arrived. Today, just 24...

    Car Repair Costs-Just Checking

    I'm being quoted $700 for a a new timing belt. This sounds awfully expensive to replace a belt. What else might they be doing as well or am I being ripped off? I know I could do a bit of a ring-around for quotes but thought I'd get impartial advice/info first. TIA PS: If this is any...
