You don't have to leave a job you like, but it could pay to be prepared to do so every few years:
Whether you’ve been with your employer for a while or have just been hired for a job, it’s a good idea to regularly search the job market to see what else is out there. Career Pivot recommends being prepared to switch jobs every 3 years.

"The Bing, egg, sausage, and Bing hasn't got much Bing in it!" "I don't want ANY Bing!"
Chrome: Windows 10 brings a ton of sweet new features. Among them, you can now search the web directly from the Start menu. However, it will always use Bing. The Bing2Google extension for Chrome will redirect your searches to Google instead.

+Matt Davis I'd stick with Binging her. Banging her causes Autism, that's why Brad isn't getting any either!

Here’s how to tweak a few of the OS’s new features and fix its little quirks.
Windows 10 resolves a lot of the annoyances left over from Windows 8, but it also comes with a few of its own—little as most of them may be. Here’s how to tweak a few of the OS’s new features and fix its little quirks.

In the lanuch day, great articles about how Windows 10 is nice. In the next days, several articles about how to fix the problem it created.

Peeling an apple for a pie or dessert? Don't toss the peels! 
Apple peels are one of those scraps that don’t really seem to have a higher purpose, but leave it to the folks at Food 52 to find a (boozy) use for them. Just toss ‘em in a bottle of bourbon and in no time you’ll have a fancy infused liquor to gift or enjoy by yourself.

Does EVERYBODY have to have a negative comment on something +Lifehacker posts? I swear. Doesn't anyone remember the old rule of thumb? If you can't say something nice, STFU.

If you don't like the new Start menu or just prefer Windows 7's menu:
Microsoft has brought back and revamped the Start menu for Windows 10. If you still prefer, say, the Windows 7 classic Start menu, good news. Start menu replacement apps we used to tweak Windows 8 should work in Windows 10.

Harmless fun or public health issue?
Everybody’s got an opinion on e-cigarettes: ask ten people about their safety and you’ll get ten different answers. Fierce debates can rage because there just isn’t a lot of data yet, but there are a few things experts can agree on. Let’s look at the details.

I know people who've quit with the assistance of these... And even if they don't plan to quit, it's really quite possible that they are much healthier. Not completely healthy, mind you... but healthier. I think that's a good thing...

Should you file jointly or individually?
Most people assume marriage means you get a big tax break. The idea is: you combine both incomes and pay a single, reduced income tax. This is true in many cases, but not all of them. This calculator tells you whether you can expect to get a bonus or penalty when it comes time to file your taxes as a married couple.

For "dual income, not kids" couples like myself, filing joint is almost always a penalty. I know i have gotten hugely screwed by this. I see it as the cost of being married. It's worth it. ;)

Don't play "the Should game".
You know those moments when you’ve gobbled up an entire pizza and you mutter, with sauce still dribbling down your lips, “I shoulda ate only one slice?” But you didn’t, and the regret of bygone decisions only further undermines your drive to achieve your health goals. Here’s how you can pick yourself up, stop worrying about what you should’ve done, and focus on what you can do.

Now that you've done the upgrade, do a little cleanup.
The Windows 10 update saves files from your previous installation so that you can revert back to it if you need to. Deleting those files can get you back up to 20 GB of disk space.

Windows should really just store those files temporarily and then delete upon a successful upgrade but it's Windows

"Sitting around and planning is worthless unless it turns into something tangible. You’re better off to have 100% execution of a 50% plan than 50% execution of a 100% plan."

+LinusTechTips 
If you’re the kind of person that takes pleasure in building a computer—choosing the case, finding the best processor (and cooling system so that you can overclock it), doting over all of the components to maximize your rig and topping it off with LED lighting—then you should probably know Linus Sebastian.
