Dear Lifehacker, my girlfriend is a Pokemon GO player. I’m not. Over the past fortnight she has been playing the game 24/7 and it’s starting to affect our relationship. When she’s not hunting Pokemon, she’s tweeting about it or researching tips on her phone — even while we’re in bed together. (And don’t get me started on our “romantic” walks!) I’m starting to feel seriously neglected! Do you have any intervention tips for Pokemon GO addicts?
Dear Lifehacker, My street was recently joined to the great and wonderful NBN (slight sarcasm there.) Telstra has since informed me that I need to move my internet and phone across as it won’t be supported in its existing state. I’ve got no problem with this, but it got me examining other telco’s NBN deals and comparing prices.
I’m still under a 24-month contract — or am I? If I stick with Telstra, I’d essentially be signing a new contract (which they’re happy to do because it keeps me as their customer) but am I still obligated if Telstra is effectively terminating the service I signed up for?
Android: We’ve all grown pretty accustomed to how handy predictive text can be, but if emoji is your preferred mode of communication, Swiftmoji, a new keyboard from SwiftKey, is going to be more your speed.
Mac: Airmail’s long been out pick for the best email client for Mac, and today it’s getting a bit better.
