There are plenty of time-travel movies in existence, but most are either obtrusive "hard sci-fi" yawn-fests or patronising popcorn entertainment. Here are ten time-travel flicks that manage to successfully straddle the divide -- with trailers!

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Dear Lifehacker, For the most part, my phone and my laptop pick up automatically when I change time zones. But it seems like something always goes wrong, either in planning or on the spot, and I miss something important. What should I do to prevent future time zone mix-ups? Sincerely, Frequent Time Traveller

The Google Friends newsletter points out in a recent issue that Google has now made it possible to find the time in locations in all over the world.

Next time you do a web search, type "time" followed by a city, state,

or country and Google will return the time for your desired location. If you enter a location with multiple time zones, we'll display results for all applicable time zones; or, if you enter a location in multiple states or countries, we'll show all locations with a similar name so you can choose between them.

You can also simply enter the search term "time" to find your local time; however, this particular feature does not seem to be working completely consistently yet.
