Amazon still hasn't announced an official launch date for its online marketplace in Australia. However, the website continues to be quietly populated with hardware products. In addition to the laptops, power boards and garden gnomes (?) that popped up last week, you can now find kitchen appliances, vacuum cleaners and heaters - including high-end gear from Dyson!

I love using Night Mode for apps and sites whenever possible. Darker colours are easier on your eyes, even during the daytime, and you can even save a little battery power on your laptop or smartphone by trading a bright white screen for something a little more subdued.

I was about five years old when teachers started pointing out that I had a good memory. It led to always being cast as the lead in school plays, because I could reliably remember all my lines within a short period of time. I thought it was because I worked hard.

From September to November, Australians had the opportunity to have their say on whether same-sex couples should be allowed to marry in an expensive postal survey that turned out to be just a little bit of a shemozzle. Today, the Australian Bureau of Statistics released the official results of the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey.

And it's an emphatic "YES"!

Dear Lifehacker, there's been a lot of coverage about the voting and enrolment deadlines for the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey. However, I'm finding it difficult to get a release date for the results. When do we get to find out which way Australians voted? Is there going to be a huge wait like with the Census?
