About Us

Part technology guide, part productivity tool, Lifehacker helps you organise your workday and maximise your playtime.

We provide tips for technology and for life which you can use to make yourself more productive, with an emphasis on free software and tools you can put to use online.

Lifehacker Australia runs all the best tips and posts from the US, eliminating the ones that are irrelevant for Aussies and adding our own daily helping of tips and tricks with an Australian focus. If you want to access the US site, you can go to us.lifehacker.com.

Our tips are sorted into seven main categories – Communicate, Design, Fix, Money, Organise, Travel, and Work

All stories are tagged so they’re easy to browse and locate.

The Lifehacker Team

Angus Kidman

Angus Kidman

Editor

Angus has been writing professionally about technology since 1994 and breaking it for even longer. He is based in Sydney but spending a frankly unhealthy portion of his life on the road, tracking down the latest stories. In 2011, he won the IT Journo Award For Best Consumer Technology Journalist and Consensus IT Writers Award for Best Technical Writer for his work on Lifehacker; about time too.

You can find his posts here.


Chris Jager

Chris Jager

Journalist

Chris has been a fulltime tech journalist since 2006, specialising in computing, home entertainment, gaming, video production and globsters. His interest in technology began at the age of four via the rubbery keys of a ZX Spectrum. Chris has been a finalist at the Australian IT Journalism Awards and his mum confirms that he’s pretty awesome. When he’s not fiddling around with various gadgets his hands are kept full by his rapidly expanding family of squalling children (three at last count!)

Elly Hart

Elly wields the subediting whip over the team and makes sure everyone gets their morning news fix from her current base in Canada. A self-described Android fangirl and information junkie, Elly was a Best Investigative Writer finalist in the 2011 Consensus IT Writers Awards and won Best Reviewer in the 2011 Microsoft IT Journalism Awards.
