Like medical advice or the answers to HQ trivia questions, you need to be careful where you get your legal advice. Twenty-odd years into the internet, people still make terrible decisions based on a faulty understanding of the law. We asked several lawyers to share the one thing they wish everyone knew about the legal profession, or how to get a lawyer. Here are their answers.
It's easy to complain about something. "My coffee is too bitter! The office is too warm! The dog didn't let me give him a bone-crushing hug!" Sure, some gripes are minor, but when it comes to interacting with technology, it can be the little things that push us over the edge. Case in point, Apple. Beautiful products. At least to look at.
I'll usually be the first to tell you that you should dive into real local cuisine when you travel to another country. It's one of the most important aspects of a culture. But I'll also be the first to tell you that you should totally hit up fast food chains in other countries. They're awesome! If you have, what's your favourite thing that you just can't get here in Australia?
Crossfit's intense workouts are a polarising subject of discussion. It seems the first rule of Crossfit club is that you must never shut up about Crossfit club, and on the flip side, the sport (routine? Discipline? Hobby?) has its share of haters. So let's take a minute to cut through that for anyone who's intrigued but isn't sure what they would be getting into and whether it's worthwhile.
Ah, summertime - when heat, hormones and boredom lead to bad decisions. Last July, four teens were arrested for allegedly having sex on a beach in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The sun was out, and the shore was filled with families not expecting, um, that type of view. Onlookers called the public display "disgusting", according to news reports.
You've probably got some downtime during the holidays, whether you're taking a few days off from work (you should), or enjoying your winter break after studying for exams (you didn't). With 2018 on the way, you can start the new year on the right foot by prepping your resolution plans beforehand. Of course, resolutions come in all shapes and sizes, so the real question is this: how are you getting a head start on yours?
Podcasts are our favourite way to use our ears here at Lifehacker. We've shared our favourite shows with you in the past, but sometimes certain episodes really stand out in our minds. These powerful podcast episodes made us think, laugh, cry, reflect, and even shudder in 2017.
Recently, we asked people who worked in the food service industry if there were any insights about their job they wished restaurant patrons would know, and we got some great answers. Whether it's about tipping, food orders, or how you should and shouldn't treat the wait staff, these are the secrets to being a good customer.
The recently released iPhone X poses a pretty radical shift in terms of how iOS users interact with their smartphone from the moment they pick it up. It's got a sizable screen, face-scanning technology, and a pair of cameras designed to make your subjects pop without toting a fancy camera.
I worked in a bakery once. If a biscuit broke, we couldn't sell it, so naturally I would dispose of the evidence in the most delicious way possible. Sometimes I'd be filling doughnuts with icing and it would smell so good and at the end there would be some leftover icing. A little taste couldn't hurt, right?
When you're a parent of young children, it's not a matter of if they will see you naked, but how many times it will happen in a day. My four-year-old daughter has always skittered in and out of my bathroom as she pleases. If I'm on the toilet, she might decide it's a good time to stand on her step stool and put on a one-girl-production of Annie. If I'm in the shower, she'll beg please, please, please, mama, can you press your butt against the glass door again? And then she'll giggle maniacally every single time.
