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.
As machine learning matures, we're finding more and more applications for the technology, beyond the niche and novelty. It's even starting to encroach on the jobs of designers and programmers, if Tony Beltramelli's research project "pix2code" is anything to go by.

That's why every responsible driver should invest in a mount to keep their mitts on the wheel and far, far away from their phone. Thankfully, the ExoMount Universal Smartphone Car Mounts do just that with some no-nonsense engineering.
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.
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.

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.
Earlier this week, I wrote about some analysis conducted by Symantec that suggested WannaCry was likely linked to threat actors from North Korea. But there's further evidence now that has people wondering what is really going on.
"Hygge" is a Danish word that essentially means the quality of cosiness, contentment and well-being. If you want to attain hygge in your household, one simple and cost-effective way is to invest in some plants. Unfortunately, they need to actually survive for it to work.

This Sunday is International Burger Day. For Australians, this is as good an excuse as any to dig into some minced lamb between two burger buns. We asked Tom Walton, Head Chef at Bondi's The Bucket List to share his personal cooking tips and recipes for lamb burgers. Here are five nuggets of advice - along with three mouth-watering Lamb Slider recipes.
In a typical year, I'll travel internationally five to seven times and interstate 15-25 times. With many of the domestic trips being day trips, all up I spend over a hundred days on the road. And I've been doing that for the last three or four years. Over that time I've refined my traveling routine, learning from my mistakes and adapting to the changing security rules at airports.
