At approximately 10pm last night, Harvey Norman quietly opened pre-orders for the highly-sought after Nintendo Classic Mini SNES. If you didn't hear about the sale, you're not alone - no announcements were made on social media and no press release was issued to journalists. We only just found out about the sale via a report on vooks.net. By then, stock had already sold out. We're so conflicted about this.
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. The Nova Plus is temptingly cheap, though, and it looks quite nice, and it has a decent processor and relatively large battery
From today, Harvey Norman is offering a three-hour delivery option to major cities across Australia following a partnership with delivery service Shippit, who recently teamed up with Australia Post.
You'll now be able to schedule (and reschedule) a delivery time between 7am and 10pm on weekdays, and GPS track your small appliances, consumer electronics, and small goods deliveries in real-time.
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.
Today Ruslan Kogan (of online retail store Kogan fame, who recently bought out Dick Smith) revealed something a little interesting in competitor Harvey Norman's stores -- one of his own branded televisions. To Twitter!
When you’re buying your lunch today, you might want to take a moment and spend a little more. Gizmodo’s Lunch Time Deals posts point out any particularly good bargains for Aussie bargain hunters around the ‘net. Today, Harvey Norman has a LG Lifeband fitness tracker going for $38.
If you can't wait for Google to ship you a shiny new Nexus 6P, word is that Harvey Norman has stock right now and is willing to part with units ahead of the device's official launch next week.
We know from past experience that getting a deal on a cheap USB 3.0 flash drive doesn't always work out. Just because it supports 3.0 doesn't mean it'll be faster than USB 2.0. Sandisk's Ultra Fit series however is the exception, especially when you can pick a 32GB model up for $15.
LG's G4 superphone goes on sale in a couple of weeks, and Australia's biggest telcos are tempting you to pre-order with some pretty nifty extras and freebies.
If you suffer from regular cases of Dropped Phone Syndrome, or if you're looking for a cheap burner phone for holidays, Harvey Norman has what looks like an extremely good deal on the entry-level Nokia Lumia 630.
The stock market is a curious place. Trillions of dollars flow around the world every day, with investors betting on stocks to go up, down and sideways. A US firm recently held a competition amongst analysts to see who could point to the best example of a stock that may be about to crash and burn. Unfortunately for Australian investors, gadget lovers and one billionaire in particular, the winning entry is a scathing analysis of Harvey Norman and its business model.
Gerry Harvey loves to complain, whether it's about high hourly rates that don't exist, unspecified red tape or online competitors who would actually be cheaper than his stores even if they were forced to charge GST. One thing he probably isn't complaining about? His annual salary as Harvey Norman chairman.
Yes, you read that right -- we rate the Harvey Norman founder at #62. But once you realise that the list -- assembled by Readers Digest and based on a national poll -- rapidly descends from genuinely inspiring individuals (Charlie Teo, Fiona Wood) to random celebrities, Gina Rinehart and the Corby sisters, you realise it's less a list of "trustworthy" people and more a scramble to recall the name of anyone famous in Australia for whatever reason.
We already know that lowering the threshold on overseas purchases would cost more to implement than it would make in revenue for the government, but that won't stop Australian retail businesses begging the government for it. 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.
