There are plenty of horror board games and tabletop RPGs that thrive on fantasy, whether it's helping a ghost solve its own gruesome murder in Mysterium, or helping to stop (or aid) the rise of evil gods with Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game. But of course, the biggest horrors are the ones humans actually face in real life. And yes, there is a board game for each one.

In terms of functionality, Apple's generic, preloaded keyboard has certainly improved, but even after adding its own App Store, complete with stickers and apps, it's still a little bland. What I do love about Apple is its support for third-party keyboards. You can ditch the generic offering and download enough keyboards for every conceivable customisation option you want.

As part of my project to find a perfect Windows 10 device for me, I'm currently testing a Dell XPS 13. I'm not going to pre-empt my review as it's still a work in progress. But The Dell, MacBook and several other systems on the market have decided to put all their eggs in the USB-C basket. And that's proving to be an epic pain with suitable devices, cables and other peripherals still relatively hard to get.

When you hand someone your phone to show them a picture, you should be able to trust them not to go swiping through your camera roll. But we live in a fallen world. And the worst violators of phone-borrowing etiquette are older relatives and in-laws — the same people who'd be most horrified to see your nudes or, so much worse, your 20 selfie outtakes.

It's not unusual to find decent discounts on expensive tech gear. In fact, we'd say you're a bit of a chump if you buy anything at its full retail price in Australia. When you do see a good discount, though, don't automatically presume you can't do even better. Instead, follow these six steps to ensure you get the best deal possible.

It is physically impossible to watch every episode of every good TV show. Yet we actually feel guilty for not keeping up with our shows. "Did you see Better Call Saul?" your friend asks; "Oh no, sorry, I'm a few episodes behind," you say, like you're letting everyone down.

Many of us enjoy a drink or two after a hard day a work. And on weekends, all bets are off! Unfortunately, it's easy to develop an unhealthy drinking habit without fully realising there's a problem. In short, you should start treating alcohol with the respect the drug demands.

As groundbreaking personal statements go, ‘I never get enough sleep’ ranks somewhere down there with ‘I enjoy music!’ and ‘I like going out – but also staying in’. It’s the modern default. Because nobody does, right? Unless you're under 10, over 70 or live on a farm with no wi-fi, you’re probably not getting enough sleep. I was one of those people. I decided to embark on a two-week experience to learn how to get eight hours of shut-eye a night.

National Burger Day is coming up on May 28, which naturally means that places that specialise in burgers are already gearing up for their very own day of days. In some cases, even places that don't usually make burgers are getting in on the action — as with Zushi's sushi-and-Japanese-chicken-inspired burger.

The problem with Netflix is that it's too bloody hard to find stuff. If you don't have a specific title in mind (and nothing on the front page grabs you), it can take hours of scrolling to find something worth watching.

That's where Netflix's "hidden" genres can help: these are browser codes that carve up the available shows and movies into very specific categories. It's a great way to choose a movie fast when time is of the essence.
