Dear Lifehacker, my 15-year old son is bugging me to buy him a PlayStation 4 Pro console for his birthday - he's even willing to put half the money towards it. The thing is, he already owns a PlayStation 4 which still works fine. Is this upgrade necessary to play future PlayStation games or will it just be a waste of money?

Dear Lifehacker, I just wanted to know why with Blu-ray discs, some of the are softer than the others. As in, when you slightly bend them they are more flexible. Some discs even feel flexible when you hold them in your hand. Does this mean that some Blu-ray discs are higher quality than others?

Dear Lifehacker, I have a Samsung Galaxy 6 edge on a mobile contract that ends in December. I want to exchange my phone for an iPhone 7 now before my contract ends - how much would that cost? Also, can I upgrade to a new plan without having to pay off the remainder of my existing plan?

Dear Lifehacker, I was wondering what the main laws are on drones in Australia? (i.e. - How high can you fly a drone, how far away are you allowed to be and where is drone activity restricted?) I'm looking to buy one for Christmas and don't want to cop a fine if I can help it.

Dear Lifehacker, My 15 year old son has really started getting into photography - it has quickly become one of his favourite subjects at school. I'd love to get him a decent camera (under $1000) that can grow with him and his skills, for a few years at least. What's the best direction to go in?

Dear Lifehacker, I'm getting myself organised to move out of home for the very first time in a few months. I was wondering if you had tips for the kinds of things I won't realise I need until I move in? Apart from the obvious essentials (bed, fridge, etc.), what should I be buying?
