Those danged passwords So danged annoying when websites don't have the option to view your password especially when entering a new one with a repeat for confirmation, and then get told they don't match. Of course one has no clue as to what parts(s) don't match. Easy peasy: type it out in a word doc,or similar, copy and paste to both boxes...

Mobile Phones. Mobile Phones, Why hasn't anyone invented or put forward. Automatic Cut Out on 'Moving Mobile Phones'. I see (and I'm sure many others too) People walking around looking like ZOMBIES with their phone stuck in their Ear or playing with it, and not concentrating where they're going. Shopping Cantres is one example. Where I've...

I have no idea how to lodge a query or a suggestion. This site is as easy to navigate as most. Ever tried to lodge a complaint or comment with Woollies or Coles? Near impossible.

Service NSW will not provide phone support to the elderly- Service NSW is certainly a misnomer. A 92-year-old person of non-English speaking background who has no family in Australia and lives in Avalon, recently tried to apply for the $200 electricity rebate to which she is entitled as a self-funded retiree. She does not have a smart phone...

Why not seals on all milk bottles For a long time, I have been on Aldi and Woolies cases to do the same as Coles and put seals under the lids on their milk! Quite often, we have to lay our 2-litre milk bottles on the bottom of the fridge. Coles is the only store that has a seal under the lids of their milk to prevent leaking. Neither Woollies...

GST Exemption for Gluten Free I have written to the previous Federal Government and the current Federal Labor Government to allow a GST exemption on gluten-free groceries to assist in relieving the enormous extra cost of Gluten Free Cereals and other gluten-free groceries.

My daughter is disabled, and $260...

Went to shop in Coles found that they had increased price of their own brand French Stick by nearly 30% from $1.50 to $1.90. Not bad considering wheat price is down. Same for all of their own brand bakery. What justification do they have? Except increased profit on essential staples Duh! I live in South Aust VERY POOR COLES
