THE internet is one of the greatest resources that man has ever invented.

It is a huge database of pretty much everything we have ever wanted to know. But instead of watching cat videos or pirating Game of Thrones, you should be taking advantage of all of this cool free stuff right at your fingertips.

Google Drive/Dropbox — A surprising number of people don't know this service exists. They are part of the cloud. Yes, that thing which stores all your information online. Both Google Drive and Dropbox will let you upload all your photos and documents online so they can be accessed on any computer, phone or tablet at any time. Super handy.

Instant free credit check — Thinking of getting a loan for a new car? Run a quick check through this site to make sure your credit is in order.

Oz Bargain — Do you order things online without searching for a discount? Stop being a chump and get on Oz Bargains. Whether it be food, clothes or electronics, chances are Oz Bargain has a code that will at least save you a little bit of money.

Ted Talks — These speeches cover a wide range of topics and can be inspiring, informative or just entertaining and interesting. Many famous people have given talks including Stephen Hawking and Steve Jobs. Most only take around 15 minutes and we guarantee you'll feel smarter at the end.

Wolfram Alpha — This is your answer to everything. Literally. Ask any question, whether it be your kid's calculus homework, nutrition facts on any food or the exact chance you have when gambling. All will be revealed.

Open Yale Courses — This is a free selection of introductory courses taught by teachers and scholars from the renowned Yale university. You won't get a degree out of it, but it will certainly teach you a lot.

iTunes U — Similar to Open Yale Courses, iTunes U is a set of free podcasts on various subjects from different universities and colleges.

Freerice.com — This is not a source for you to get free rice. Rather, it's a source for you to give free rice to the disadvantaged. All you have to do is play a quiz game on the site, and the ad revenue the site makes from you being on there is used to buy rice for those in need.

Pandora — This is perfect for when you just want to have music on in the background. Just pick an artist, song or genre and Pandora will make a 'radio station' of songs based around the track you picked.

7 Cups of tea — Feel like you just need someone to talk to? 7 Cups of Tea is a place where you can head and talk to trained active listeners. It's free, anonymous and everything is confidential.

Duolingo — A great site that teaches you languages for free.

F.lux — Did you know that using your phone or computer before you go to sleep is bad for you? Well it is. F.lux wants to help you, it changes the colours of your screen to reduce eye strain. While you still probably should drop the phone, this is the next best thing.

Cards Against Humanity — Why buy the hilarious, politically incorrect card game when you can just print it off yourself?

Get tech help for free — Having computer problems? Are the younger people in your life sick of you bugging them? Ask your question here and the friendly folk on the internet will help you through it.
