While computers have been used by the military in creating simulations and training operators in the use of equipment, this is the first time I've seen something from the gaming world make it into production like this. The US Navy is using an Xbox controller to operate the periscope on Virginia-class submarines.

Hi Lifehacker! I have a question for you, would love to get your expert advice. My Nexus 5x is still alive, but need to make an upgrade due to storage (16GB just doesn’t cut it these days…). Having been with a cheaper mid-range, I’m interested in what is the best out there at the moment?

I’m kind of leaning towards picking up a cheap Google Pixel seeing that prices are tumbling now the Pixel 2 is nearly here. What would you suggest?

Moving house is a time of excitement. But it can also be a time of great stress. As someone who works from home much of the time, a smooth move is critical as every day that I spend messing around shifting boxes, furniture and services is a day when I'm not working and not earning any money. I thought I had everything planned perfectly. And then I wanted an Internet connection.

Everybody wants better sleep. Many of us invest considerable money, time and effort in search of that perfect night’s rest. We spend on pharmaceutical sleep aids, gadgets and devices, anything that promises to help us sleep easier.

Too often our issues stem from what we do immediately before bedtime. In the interests of promoting better sleep for all, let’s take a look at some nightly habits, and whether they lead to forty winks or tears at work the next morning.

Earlier this week, a teenager working in Adelaide was fired from her job for posting that she will vote No in the same sex marriage survey. And I've had a number of people tell me, on condition of anonymity and through their social media accounts, that their employers are pushing a strong view on how staff should vote.

Putting aside the obvious emotion regarding the same sex marriage postal vote, should employers be allowed to coerce you to vote in a particular way or fire you for your views?

Google is launching a new zero-touch enrollment tool for Android rollouts so companies can configure the devices they purchase and ship them with management and settings pre-configured.

Google's getting into the phone hardware business. Properly. It's just signed an agreement with HTC to poach some top smartphone development employees from the Taiwanese phone-maker, as well as to license some of its intellectual property. The deal is said to be worth $US1.1 billion, and will give Google the tools it needs to step up to the plate against Apple when it comes to making a vertically integrated smartphone: everything from the hardware inside it to the software that runs on it.

I'm a 25 year old woman. I'm not "Victoria's Secret model hot" but I'm also aware I'm good looking. I'm told I'm "unique" (eye roll), and I have diverse interests so I usually don't have any problems getting along with people unless I find them absolutely boring. But anyway...

I have a weird problem: People only wanting to get into a relationship with me. It's absolutely not what I'm looking for. Although I'm incredibly sexual, I don't have "romantic feelings".
