There's no end to the purposes you can put a Raspberry Pi to. Here are 12 of our favourite DIY projects for the popular and tiny computer.
Pie making can be a challenge for cooks, especially with the (relatively) recent outburst of food allergies and intolerances. Everyone is allergic or intolerant of something, and it's difficult to please all of the people all of the time. In my family alone, there are four different people with five different "can't eat this" issues - one of them being gluten. But even the gluten-abstaining deserve pies, so we're taking a look at gluten-free crusts.
Microsoft's Windows 10 upgrade program was discontinued for the general public last July, but you can still get your hands on a free upgrade to Windows 10 if you're a user of the company's assistive technology features. Luckily, Microsoft's definition of the term is pretty broad, which means if you rely on features like closed captioning (or even keyboard shortcuts), you still qualify for a free upgrade. The offer ends December 31.
Can't wait for Amazon's arrival in Australia and want to know what they're likely to be stocking right out of the gate? If you use this handy Google search trick, you can begin to find items that Amazon Australia are likely to be selling.
I think the first time it happened to me this year was last weekend, the beginning of November, in an IKEA. When we rounded that final corner to the cash registers, my boyfriend and I came face to face with hundreds of artificial Christmas trees waiting to be bought. Afterwards, I started noticing advent calendars and ornaments popping up almost everywhere I go, along with mentions of the holidays in my social feeds.
What do you do when it’s a Monday morning and you feel more like a deflated balloon than a productive person? Hoping that Oprah will pop out from behind your couch and give you a pep talk on living your best life is, likely, futile. But I’ll let you in on a little secret: motivating yourself to kick butt isn’t as hard as you may think.
Maybe it's happened to you. You're cruising around YouTube and then boom: a video of Spiderman hanging out with girls in bikinis trying to make Elsa from Frozen jealous and then the Joker appears, ready to fight. This would seem like a weird video to any sane adult. But the weirdest thing is that it's actually made for kids.
You have no idea what you're doing. This is great, says author Neil Gaiman in a commencement speech at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Being unfamiliar with established rules and limits is a plus when you're trying to be creative and make things: "If you don't know it's impossible, it's easier to do."
My favourite part of staying in hotels is hotel breakfast. Breakfast food, or at least the breakfast food I traditionally eat, is some of the simplest to prepare, but I really love it when someone else scrambled those eggs or fried that bacon for me. I genuinely look forward to it every time I travel.
To qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Australia have to first go through the Central American nation of Honduras. If Australia wins the two-leg series, they're off to Russia next year to compete with the world's best in the world's most beautiful game. With the first leg in Honduras last Saturday morning ending in a nil-all draw, the Socceroos are now gearing up for the must-win second leg in Sydney.
Here's how you can watch all the action from the second leg of the World Cup Qualifiers live, online and free.
Picture the scene: you've organised a week off work for some much-needed R&R. On the first day of your holiday, you're struck down with the flu. Instead of sunning it up on the beach, you spend the entire week coughing up phlegm in a hotel bed.
If you had been at work, you definitely would've called in sick on these days - so why should annual leave be any different? Let's take a look at the legalities.
In the race to adopt electric vehicles, Australia is sputtering along in the slow lane. Rather than growing, Australian sales of electric cars are actually in decline. In 2016 they represented just 0.02 per cent of new car sales – even lower than in 2013.
Contrast that with Norway, the country with the highest levels of electric car adoption. Almost 30 per cent of new cars sold there in 2016 were electric.
One of the best things about NaNoWriMo, or any terrifying deadline, is that it forces you to write quickly. (Hello, procrastinators.) If writing quickly is your stated goal, then you don't have time to do the number one thing that interrupts your writing flow: Think about whether what you're writing is good.
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?
