Dear Lifehacker, I was wondering if you can help me appraise some gold stud earrings I wish to sell? They're jadelite cream with a vintage apple design. Each piece has 11 diamonds on the back totaling 22. I can see hallmarks but can't quite make them out. I don't know their value or maker. I would appreciate any help!


The Australian online shopping and classifieds portal Quicksales has announced it has abolished all selling fees on its website. Effective immediately, sellers will be able to place as many sales listings as they like free of charge. Not coincidentally, the announcement was made on the same day that eBay increased its seller fees to 9.9 per cent.


From October 10, eBay is going to start showing groups of results when searching for particular kinds of gadgets, rather than a vertical listing as it does in other categories. The change will affect items listed in the mobile phone, digital camera and Apple laptops categories.


Since launching in Australia, eBay has always had a policy of placing local listings ahead and separately from those originating overseas. From today, that approach will change somewhat, with listings from the US and UK sites intermingled with those offered by Australians in a "variety of categories".
