Last week a nerdier segment of the music world was abuzz with the news that an Austrian company Rebeat had taken a $US4.8 million ($6 million) dollar investment to help bring its "HD vinyl" records to market by mid 2019. Huh? HD vinyl? How does one make the last analogue music storage format (that people still care about) high-definition?

It screamed pure marketing buzzwordship to us, but we consulted with some experts and surprise, it seems there's reason to be cautiously optimistic.

Most people over a certain age have a bunch of vinyl records gathering dust in a wardrobe, trunk or suitcase. (It's how you separate Gen X and Baby Boomers from everyone who came after.)

If your collection is still in mint condition, some of them could be worth a few hundred bucks. And if you happen to be an old school punk or Beatles fan, you could be sitting on over $30,000.

Hi Lifehacker, I'm a self-employed tradesman and struggle to keep good records of the work I've done and when. Obviously a physical diary would do the job but it would be great to have something that syncs with google calendar and allows photos to be added. Any recommendations?
