Don't worry, it doesn't require a mind meld.
I have a pretty unreliable memory. Far too often I find people saying to me, "I told you this already!" I also tend to rely on other people to remember things for me--in fact, group transactional memory, the process of storing information in other people's heads, is more common than you think.

Frugality is great, just make sure it's not hurting you more than it helps:
Frugality seems like a harmless enough topic. You want to save money; you cut back on your living expenses. But some financial experts point out that frugality can be limiting. They argue that frugality can actually detract from more important financial goals.

+avast! Antivirus's study isn't perfect, but it does highlight the dangers of not properly wiping your phone before you sell or donate it:
If you plan on selling or donating your smartphone and want to make sure all of your data is off of it, make sure you do more than just factory reset through the phone's OS. Security researchers picked up several phones "wiped" this way, and found tons of data.

Encryption is a good idea anyway. Don't wait until you want to wipe the device to turn it on.

We spoke with the IFTTT team to learn about the development of their mobile apps:
IFTTT--meaning "if this then that"--is quickly becoming a staple in many digital toolboxes. The service is like cross-platform programming: you can create triggers and actions to pipe information from one place to another. Sounds like it was created just for Lifehacker.
