Life Hacks = ?

Did you ever see the "Life Hacks" from TED Talks? There are some interesting ideas on offer: I just picked up a good tip on cleaning one's blender.

But the title is pretty amusing. The kind of tips offered are essentially the same as those found in the Hints from Heloise column in your old hometown newspaper, you know, the thing your mom used to read. But that was so... square. However, once we call it "hacking," then it sounds like something cool Neo would do in the Matrix, and then it's A-OK to read about using vinegar to remove stains and whatnot.
