Level playing fields: Girt by CNET podcast 87

The Girt team takes a look at the massive changes that shook up the Aussie tech retail space this year.

The Australian brick-and-mortar tech retail space has narrowed a little further this week, with the announcement that JB Hi-Fi has bought appliance retailer The Good Guys.

With news about the chronic mismanagement (or, if you will, flaming garbage fire of poor choices) that lead to Dick Smith's shuttering in January and more information about the proposed online GST also coming out, the Girt team takes a look at the changing face of the local retail landscape.

Uber's also been making more quality of life improvements and looking to the future with driverless cars, so with the local landscape in mind, we check in with how the ubiquitous ridesharing app has been winning the war against the taxi industry.
