About was started by Marty Meany in 2014. While working in a phone shop, he realised that the same questions were being asked day in and day out. After some Googling, he realised there wasn’t a dedicated consumer technology review website which answered people’s questions. And so, was born.

    What does Goosed mean?

    It means two things, but we're only ever talking about one meaning. When working in Limerick, Marty's colleague used to tell customers their phones were broken by saying they were "goosed". While it's a colloquial term for "broken" or "banjaxed", it put people at ease. He wasn't sure whether it was because it just sounded like a funny word or because people liked familiar language. Either way, that's what it means and also how we got our name!

    Were you once

    Yes! We rebranded in 2018 because no-one knew how to pronounce our name. We bought it with the 3 because the other one wasn't available. We then bought a dot ie because we wanted to be very clear that our primary target market is Ireland.

    Is Goosed a valid scrabble word?

    Yes it is! Which of course validates us even more. On standard squares, "goosed" will earn you eight points.
