Dear Lifehacker, I am primarily a PC gamer but recently the Destiny Beta came out and I spent a whole week playing my PlayStation 4 and barely touched my PC. During that week of playing the PS4 my eyes would strain and become really sore after long hours of gaming but I rarely got that over the years of PC gaming. The PS4 uses one of my PC monitors so it can’t be the peripheral. Do you know what it could be?
Hey Lifehacker, I’m a recently-minted freelance web developer learning how to make my way in the world of solo business. In preparing an online portfolio to present to potential clients/employers, I have included several examples of websites that I built at the advertising agency for which I used to work. In each case I’ve been careful to credit the designer and the agency for the design while honestly describing what my part in the project was and how I accomplished the work.
Hey Lifehacker, I have friends with two young teenagers (11 and 13) who are screaming for their own mobile phones. The parents are concerned about cost overruns, particularly with data limits. What they are looking for is a plan (preferably pre-paid) that has a “real” data limit. If the use gets to that limit then the connection is either shaped or cut off. No risk of excess data charges and parents don’t have to worry about a surprise bill. Any suggestions?
Dear Lifehacker, I am a keen photographer but have no actual training. All my photos are taken on my iPhone 5, and I’m generally happy with them, outside of extreme close-ups. I often see competitions which have quite strict criteria for the quality of images submitted. Can phone cameras actually take decent photos? Is it possible to tell if they’re any good on the device itself, or do you need them How can you tell the quality of a photo without a program like photoshop. And does editing the photo with filters reduce the quality?
Dear Lifehacker, After going through my third pair of earphones for my mobile in recent times, I was wondering if there is a “preferred” way to keep the phone in your pocket? Do you have the lead facing upwards from the outside of the pocket, or down towards the groin? I’m sick of my earphones not lasting a year before the connection becomes sketchy.
Hi Lifehacker, I recently put a crack in the screen in my Sony Xperia Z tablet rendering a third of the screen unusable. According to Sony this would cost $450 to repair, nearly the value of the tablet itself. I could not find anywhere in Melbourne that would repair a Sony tablet but I was able to keep using it, albeit with much reduced functionality. However, a recent software update has made the tablet completely unusable as I cannot get past the language selection screen (as pictured).
