Kygo A11/800 Review: For The Dance Music Fans Not The Audiophiles

There's a whopper volume of headphones hitting the market these days. It's well-timed too. Not all office workplaces encourage headphones, but with more people working from home and seeking the ability to "get in the zone" with noisy surroundings, people want good audio equipment. The Kygo A11/800 headphones are one of the latest pairs of noise-cancelling headphones to land on my desk. I've given them a test drive and here's what I think about them. Who Is Kygo? Truth be told, these are the reviews I hate. I hate them because...

Nokia 1.3 Review – Budget Smartphone That Might Be Better Than You Think

Nokia, the name just brings back memories of sturdy, sexy, simple phones from yesteryear.

F1 2020 Game Review: Strap In For One Hell Of A Ride

I've always been a fan of Formula One games. From the original racers to EA's F1 Manager game, there's a scratch that comes with being an F1 fan that these games scratch. The F1 2020 game is out and the latest instalment from Codemasters is by far the most comprehensive F1 game to date. If you want to see Ferarri make a good start to the 2020 season, this game might be the only way you'll do it. F1 2020: What's New? A good question to ask when it comes to...

Huawei MatePad Pro Review: A Productivity Beast

Huawei has been pouring new products into the Irish market in recent years. This has accelerated due to some increased anxiety over the whole Google, Trump, China thing. While that whole thing sucks, the up-side is that we get lots of new toys which traditionally were kept for other countries or even just China. One of these new toys is the Huawei MatePad Pro, a 10.8-inch tablet which has crosshairs set on the iPad and even the iPad Pro. You can watch my hands-on review above, or give this a read.

RTÉ Is Bringing Back The Den This November

There's been a really interesting trend that's already poking its head out because of COVID-19. We're craving retro stuff. According to Krystine Batcho, a psychology professor in New York, sees a resurgence of nostalgia during COVID-19 as a natural response. We're all experiencing mega-stress and people generally "find comfort in nostalgia during times of loss, anxiety, isolation, or uncertainty". I guess that's why, when you're having a bad day, a good dose of Reeling in the Years always helps. Well, RTÉ is hot on the tails of this trend after announcing that The Den is making a...

Culture Night 2020: How A Free Night Of Culture Is Going Ahead

Culture Night is one of my favourite night of the year in Ireland. It's a night where the streets of Dublin often got closed to celebrate performances of different kinds.

New on Netflix: The Social Dilemma

The entire internet is now built for one reason. To catch your attention. In running this site, I've resisted for years adding ads to the site. But I'm trying to build a business which can bring more and more people the best tech news on a daily basis. So I caved. Unless you're using an ad blocker, this page has ads. That's because companies will pay to get in front of you. It's a bit of an unfair battle given until I said that, you might not have even noticed what was happening. That's why The...
