Here’s Everything from Last Night’s Nintendo Direct

Someone pinch me, I must be dreaming. After a prolonged absence (543 days to be exact) we finally got our first full Nintendo Direct in a long, long time. While there have been one-off special Directs like the Mario 35 event, the odd Smash character reveal and a few Pokémon announcements, we haven’t seen a full general Direct since...

Dyson Air Purifier Review: Think About The Air You Breathe

Dyson-Pure-Hot-and-Cool-purifier-review
Some of my favourite gadgets completely challenge how I think about things. A while back I got a Meater smart cooking probe. Suddenly, I understood how cooking, something I do nearly everyday, actually works. My mind was blown. Dyson sent me a Pure Hot + Cool Air Purifier to test out for Pancake Tuesday. While that might sound odd,...

the great suspender malware
If you're a Chrome browser user, you may have noticed it likes to slow down your laptop with massive consumption of resources. Turning to extensions like The Great Suspender meant you could control how long tabs claimed these resources. Unfortunately, The Great Suspender ended up in the wrong hands and was filled with malware, but can you still use...

Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro Review: Light With Lots Of Battery

soundcore liberty air 2 pro-2
Not that long ago, ear buds were expensive with an absolute maximum of three hours battery. Noise cancelling was fancy technology only found in top of the range headphones. These key specs are thankfully much more accessible these days. A fantastic example of that is the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro ear buds. I've been using these for a...

International Websites Destination Of Choice For Irish Shoppers

Irish shopping trends
Ireland has been very slow to adopt online shopping. That's a broad statement that needs a little bit of digging. Irish businesses, more specifically, have been slow to accept Irish shoppers want to spend online. Irish shoppers on the other hand have been more than happy to buy what they need from web stores. Today, PayPal has released figures...

Ireland’s Unlimited Mobile Data Networks

Ireland unlimited data plans
Do you remember when we used to care about data caps? It seems like a long long time ago, right? As someone who used to live with a 1GB Meteor limit, that's mind blowing that I live without worry of exceeding mobile data limits these days. I stream or download as much as I like. Cool, eh? Today, Virgin Media...

Demon’s Souls; If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.

Until this year, I had never played Demon’s Souls. I know that many in the gaming community view this as some kind of cardinal sin but there it is. I’m not ashamed to admit it anymore. I guess I missed out on playing it because I was more invested in the Xbox environment at the time, not paying much...

Eamon Ryan To Propose Legalisation Of Electric Scooters Today

electric scooters ireland
Well, it's been a journey hasn't it. Before Christmas, I looked on in disbelief as Gardaí stepped up their efforts to crack down on the use of electric scooters. These mechanically propelled vehicles were purchased in a grey area and then continued to be used when that was clarified. While Transport Minister, Eamon Ryan, stated this would be sorted...

Bebo Is Coming Back This February

bebo is back this february
Last November, something weird happened. Bebo started trending on Twitter. There was no real reason for it. I assumed it was just a bit of luv for some nostalgia while being locked up at home. Given that the company had shifted focus towards other endevours, the social focus was gone for good surely? Apparently not. The people behind the...

What’s Happening With GameStop Stock On Wall Street?

One of my favourite movies of all time is The Big Short. It's all about how the financial sectors greed crashed markets in 2007 leading to a global recession. Good times. It's the kind of film you hoped would never get a sequel simply because another movie would be more bad news right? Well, right now, it feels like...
