This is the moment we've all been waiting for, folks.
Amazon Prime launches in Australia today. Yep, proper Amazon Prime - the one that gets you fast, free delivery and a bunch of other benefits. Prime is already available for Amazon customers around the world, but the real question is - what will we get in Australia, and how much is it going to cost us? Well, Amazon says Prime members in Australia "will have access to the widest selection of Prime benefits at launch for any country ever".
Here's what they are.

There are two ways of listening to music. you can shut everything out and focus purely on the tunes, or you can use music to enhance other activities in your life. Headphones and earbuds, especially those of the noise-cancelling variety are quite good at the first; you just put some on, turn up the volume, and let everything else fade away. However, when it comes to the second kind of enjoyment of tunes, earbuds aren't quite as proficient. Now sometimes that's a good thing, because I doubt many people like hearing others grunt at the gym or taking a jackhammer to the street. But at the same time, wearing earbuds often means you lose the ability to hear the bell of a bike coming up from behind you, or the chirping of birds on a beautiful day in the park.
