We’re also answering your questions about digital bookmarks and speeding up an old MacBook. Alan Henry (Lifehacker) and Jonathan Rudenberg (Tent) join the discussion this week.

  • Alan's Tip: Use Google Image Search to Match Unmatchable Clothing (Lifehacker)
  • Jonathan's Tip: VPNs aren’t just for bypassing region restrictions, use them whenever you connect to open Wi-Fi.
  • Adam's Tip: If you have a handyman coming to fix a problem in your house, research the problem s/he's trying to fix. In the off-chance they make mistakes, you might be able to help and save yourself a bunch of trouble.
