July is looking like a ripper month for kicking back, grabbing a bag of lollies or popcorn and settling into the couch. If you're looking for some action that doesn't require too much brain power, there's San Andreas and the Arnold classic, The Last Action Hero. Comedy is covered with The Wedding Singer and a stack of Kath and Kim and for the more serious there's the classic The Shawshank Redemption and Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

And that's not even mentioning all the Netflix Originals - including new episodes of Orange Is the New Black and Stranger Things 3!

However, some flights will now require more points which means spending more money. Here's everything you need to know.


If you hate green beans, there’s probably a good reason why. Your green bean experiences likely involved someone absentmindedly opening a can of green beans and throwing them in a saucepan on the stove. Maybe they were french cut (or not), and whoever was cooking threw in a few lardons of bacon (or not). Either way, you ended up with, mushy (possibly bacon-y) sadness.


On Wednesday, Facebook announced Libra, a cryptocurrency that it will launch (along with 27 other partners) in 2020.

A little like Bitcoin and a little like PayPal, Libra will be a new digital currency, one available to people without bank accounts or credit cards, but that could potentially be a major force for the rest of us, too. But first you have to trust Facebook with yet more personal data. Here’s what you need to know.


Whether you're conscious about online security or just want to access American Netflix, a virtual network provider (VPN) is absolutely essential. One of the fastest and most reliable options in Australia is PureVPN, which we recently shortlisted as a top five VPN provider of 2019.
