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

f1 2020 review
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...

EKSA E900 Pro: A Cheap But Excellent Gaming Headset

When you run a tech review website, you get a lot of cold emails. The vast majority of them are junk, generic emails that get no further thought beyond me wondering why they didn't end up in spam. A few months back, an email landed in that I nearly didn't pay any attention. It was offering me...

Google Pixel Buds Review: The Most Comfortable Ear Buds Ever

Do you remember when there was a genuine shock we, as a society, decided to kill the headphone jack? In hindsight, it makes total sense. In fact, it had to happen before Bluetooth audio accessories would get really good. When it comes to over-ears, the Bose 35 QCii are still a market leader for me but I'm...

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...

Less than 48 hours ago I brought you news that the HSE had launched Ireland's COVID tracking app. The app has already reached one million users in Ireland. This is great news because white some reports suggest the app will need to reach 60% of the population, in countries with lower infection rates 40% adoption can be...

How To Install Irish COVID Tracker App

One thing the news has taught me over the past few days is that we're still dealing with something rather dangerous in COVID-19. While we might not talk about it as much, it's still capable of terrible things. Many, myself included, believed that the Government-backed COVID Tracker App wouldn't be needed by the time it landed, but...

Which Companies Have Stopped Advertising With Facebook?

#StopHateforProfit
You know why fines exist, right? If you do something wrong and are told you're wrong, there's a fair chance you'll do it again. If you're hit in the pocket, you're less likely to re-offend. Works for speeding and borrowing books from the local library. It also works in big business. Over the past few weeks, some...

Closca Face Mask Review: Reusable, Sustainable, Filter Cloth Face Mask

Face masks or face coverings are set to become mandatory in Ireland. While making them mandatory is a positive step for public health, it brings with it a risk of increased waste as a result of single-use, disposable masks. I've been testing out a reusable filtered cloth face mask produced by Closca Design. Here's everything you need...

5 Things We Want to See From New Transport Minister Eamon Ryan

Minister for Climate Action, Communication Networks and Transport
Finally, we have a government. Not what many thought would happen and some have been left angry enough about it. Back in February, I'm personally not sure this is what I would have supported. Still, I'm of the opinion we should criticise what they do and not give out about their existence. Micheal Martin has said that...

Google Pixel 4a: Everything We Know About Google’s Next Smartphone Launch In Ireland

There's a drum regularly beaten around Goosed Tower. Smartphone launches have become boring. Last year, one smartphone that caught us off guard was the Google Pixel 3a. While the Pixel 3XL was, and indeed still is, a great smartphone, its little sister was incredible. Today, at just €329, the Pixel 3a is still one of the best...
