Ask LH: Am I Allowed To Scrape Designs From A Company I Used To Work For?

Dear Lifehacker, In my previous job I developed some Intellectual Property in the form of an online fitness challenge. I’m pretty proud of the work and wanted to get access to the files again.

Ask LH: Is There A Cheap Way To Own Two Cars?

Dear Lifehacker, Is it possible to cheaply own a second car? I’m not so concerned about purchase price and petrol. I’m more worried about CTP, rego and comprehensive insurance options. This is just a car for occasional use by my wife, so $1250 a year minimum (my estimates for NSW) before it even leaves the driveway seems a bit much. Show More Summary

Dear Lifehacker, I recently copped a 30-day driving suspension for a DUI in Queensland while on a road trip to Western Australia where I’m staying for work. Does my suspension also apply here in WA or can I still drive? My other question is when my suspension is over. Show More Summary

Dear Lifehacker, I have bought an online digital code for Windows 10. Is there a website I can use to verify if it’s genuine?

Ask LH: Are Diet Microwave Dinners Actually Healthy?

Dear Lifehacker, I’ve decided I want to get healthier and shed some excess weight. I’m pretty time-poor, so I’ll be mainly relying on diet microwave dinners from the supermarket (Weight Watchers, Lean Cuisine, McCain Healthy Choice, etc.) My question is: will these products actually help me lose weight? And are they considered healthy? More »

Dear Lifehacker, Could you recommend some podcasts to me? I’ve been listening to This American Life, TED and Radiolab and want to broaden my horizons with some fresh content.

Dear Lifehacker, our neighbour has a drone equipped with a camera.

Ask LH: How Can I Protect My PC From Ransomware?

Dear Lifehacker, It was recently reported on the ABC that hundreds of Australian computers are being infected with ransomware, which I guess is a form of the cryptlocker virus.

Ask LH: How Far Above And Below My Land Is Legally Mine?

Dear Lifehacker, I own my own property in Australia. I was wondering how much space directly above and below my land legally belongs to me? For example, do I own the land all the way down to the centre of the Earth, or does it become government/public property after a few feet? Likewise, does the airspace above my house technically belong to me? If so, how far up? More »      

Ask LH: Can I Get Out Of My Suspended Rego Fine?

Ask LH: Am I Allowed To Pirate Software I Already Own?

Dear Lifehacker, if a program I have legitimately purchased is a pain to activate (for example, it’s a few years old and the licence key is no longer supported), can I find an “alternative” way to make the program work? Can a business do the same thing? More »      

Ask LH: Do I Need To Poop Every Day?

Dear Lifehacker, According to Metamucil and other high-fibre products, I’m supposed to squeeze out a Number 2 once per day to remain “regular”. Personally, I don’t go that often and I don’t seem to be suffering for it. So here’s my question: Is remaining “regular” actually important to my health, or is it just a ploy to sell supplements I don’t need? More »

Ask LH: Why Do Digital Music Companies Keep Ripping Off Australians?

Dear Lifehacker, It just so happened that I had my US proxy on while looking at Google Music. The Ultimate Santana album price read $6.99. Meanwhile, the Australian region price was $16.99 from the same exact service. This is same for whole long list of great albums. What gives? More »
