It can be tricky to move into your dream industry once you've already built your adult life. Maybe you already have an established career. Perhaps you have kids. You might even be stuck in a job you hate, but need it to pay the bills.

But it's not impossible to make a change. You do have options. Course or education providers like Upskilled offer Australians online study options so you can upgrade your career, or perhaps find a new one. All from the comfort of your home. Here's what you need to know.

Sometimes, the only way to fix an unhappy relationship is to end it. Since former president Obama (remember that guy?) left office in January, the United States has done an about-face on the Paris climate agreement — the country has gone from being an leader on climate action to a rogue state that can't decide whether it wants to keep a seat at the international table.

Come with me, and you'll be in a world of pure imagination.

I'm not joking when I say the Microsoft Surface Studio makes this sentence — pulled from the incredible video that Microsoft wrote to promote its new super-luxury, all-in-one PC, in the words of Willy Wonka's fantasies — come true. When you get face to face with the Surface Studio, and when you see what it can do, you can't help but think of all the possibilities of what you can do with it. It's incredible.

Last week I was in Barcelona thanks to Volvo, who wanted me to devalue some of their first production XC60s by driving them. I was happy to oblige, and even happier to scrutinize, in conversation-killing detail, the cars of Barcelona's lovely streets. The big surprise? I saw a lot of cool vans. Come on, join me on this magical tour of whatever happened to be nearby me!

A few short years ago, we were all mostly stuck watching broadcast free-to-air TV: news broadcasts, soaps, daytime TV, cartoons in the arvo, news at night and prime-time drama after that. But that's not the done thing any more.

All of Netflix's shows are available all the time — and the worldwide streaming giant knows exactly what you want, and when you want to watch it. As it turns out, Australia wants its cartoons first thing, drama at lunch and comedy in bed late at night.

On TV, we have become used to seeing a lot of sex and nudity on certain networks and in certain TV shows. Game of Thrones is the most famous of the lot, causing the term "sexposition" to be coined for how it paired important information with sex and nudity to keep the audience engaged. Sex is titillation, something forbidden or scandalous enough to get attention from an audience. But that's not how American Gods approaches it at all.

In sunny Australia, household rooftop solar can be a great way to generate some of your own power, and potentially save money off your electrical bill. Thanks to recent technology improvements and price reductions, home battery storage makes it possible to store the sun’s energy and use it again at night. But as more and more players enter the market, which option is right for you?
