Yet another entrant into the mid-range smartphone market well in time for Christmas, the Huawei Nova Plus is a big-screened Android phone that promises "powerful performance" and a "fantastic camera" — like every other Android phone, let's be honest.

Ah, Twitter. It's a place where people come together, share news, promote their hip-hop debut, spam you with porn, have intense debates about complex topics in only 140 characters.

Consumer action group, CHOICE, has crunched the numbers on the implementation of a GST hike and found that Aussies would foot a 37 per cent increase on their average purchases under $1000 for a tax that costs the government more than it earns.

After fixing the overheating issues, the HP Chromebook 11 is back on sale around the world, and now the way is clear for it to land on Australian shelves, too. Specifically, those of JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.

Consumer research group Global Reviews has released a report analysing the experiences of Australians looking to buy 46-55-inch televisions online. It found that JB Hi-Fi is the most preferred online store due to a perception of having the best prices. Harvey Norman, meanwhile, has a hard time holding onto would-be customers, with the majority defecting to another retailer before making their final purchase.
