Ask LH: What Does A Local Call Cost From An Australian Public Payphone?

Hi Lifehacker, There are relatively few public phones these days, though there are some in prominent locations, like the ones at Flinders Street station in Melbourne. There is a long notice telling you to please insert coins and that no change will be given — but nowhere does it tell you how much to put in for a local call. This secret would be of great value to locals and tourists who need to make a call. Any insights?

Ask LH: How Can I Archive My Gmail?

Dear Lifehacker, I use Google Drive quite extensively, and I am now close to the 15GB limit. I have deducted that the main offender is numerous emails with attachments – as a lot of these are quite sensitive (job applications for example) – I don’t want to just delete them. Is there any way to bulk forward them to Evernote, or otherwise save them locally?
