Nintendo Classic Mini NES, Fake Facebook News and Amazon's Australian plans: Vertical Hold – Episode 102

Can you trust anything you read on Facebook? What are Amazon’s plans for Australia (and why is Australian online shopping so rubbish?). Meanwhile, we dissect the Nintendo Classic Mini NES with special guest,’s Seamus Byrne!
In a week where EB Games melted its server not once but twice, we examine Australian online shopping in the shadow of the (rumoured) incoming US retail giant. We go nostalgic for the Nintendo Classic Mini NES, even though you need to be some kind of wizard to actually get one, and Facebook’s big problem with fake news goes under the microscope.
Vertical Hold is brought to you by Alcatel.
