Amazon goes live in Australia


Online retail giant Amazon has finally launched in Australia, and although the appeal to many locals is the idea of easy access to global products, Amazon is focusing on the "buy Australian" angle.

Australia to finally get its hands on Amazon Alexa


Online retail king Amazon has announced that the Alexa-powered Echo, Echo Dot, and Echo Plus devices are coming to Australia.

Alexa and Echo will land in Australia and NZ in early 2018
