@hiddensoul Thanks for tagging me! I haven't been checking social media all that much lately :)
Rhode microphones are the best though! And personally, I think you've made a wise choice to stick with your current phone. Too little of a benefit to upgrade to a Samsung Galaxy 10.
@phobos_dthorga Yes I agree a AU$800 loss in 13 months is just stupid if I sold it I will keep it for a few more generations unless it breaks
Lately though, I've purchased a DBrand skin for my current phone as I wish to drop the protective case altogether. If it gets damaged then well, it lived a good life. The phone is well over three years old now which is considered pretty dated in the tech world ^,==,^
@phobos_dthorga @hiddensoul I troed that a year ago when mine was new, since the Pixel XL backside is really prone to scratching. Ended up getting slapped by a hefty extra fine that they did not disclose on their website (except buried in their really long purchase agreement) because it was an out-of-EU order. Ended up getting a refund and found a similar store based in the UK instead. Still, I'd -never- go without a drop protective case.
@hiddensoul @phobos_dthorga Oh yes, I am not saying it is their fault but it specifically said on the check out that it was the final fee. That is what ticked me off when I was told I had to pay up twice to get my order. I understand in the US is is not common to list VAT in prices; but here we always list every single cost involved with a purchase. To not do that is basically scam-level, intentional or not.
I'd excuse smaller companies for not knowing all the rules since they don't have the body of knowledge necessary. Plus that company hid such details in the ToS!
So you have to basically pay VAT for even incoming international goods? o..o
@phobos_dthorga @Lingondraken But that is the same for Australia If I but an item from an overseas company that is NOT registered with the Australian taxation Office and at the border the invoice is over $1000 I have to pay GST it is not the duty of small sellers to collect GST only big companies have an obligation like Amazon or eBay
@hiddensoul Huh, I remember when they were the "go-to" brand for protective cases. I suppose their quality has dropped off somewhat with all that fame?
