Zoom Bombing: How To Avoid Unwanted Visitors In Your Zoom Calls

avoiding zoombombing
What was the last meme to trend before COVID-19? Honestly, if you've ever played Fallout, I sometimes feel like I'm living it. The life we knew a distant memory. Not trying to be dramatic, instead, I just think it's so crazy that everything I write now has roots in the completely different world we all find ourselves in. One...

Not to long ago, we made a commitment to not promoting gambling. However, during the week a lost a few bob while playing poker with some friends. It absolutely wasn't about the gambling. We had all played poker together before, though we hadn't played in a few months. With everyone in isolation, we realised everyone wanted a bit of...

Working from home. We've heard a lot of this in the past few weeks. There have been articles galore online including some bits from us too. Working from home means a seemingly endless stream of video calls with colleagues. Video calls aren't all that bad. Personally, I've been astonished by how far video calling technology has come...

Has Houseparty Been Hacked?

was houseparty hacked?
My phone beeped quite a few times yesterday. Text messages with people asking me if Houseparty, the popular isolation communication app, has been hacked. My response was simple. Maybe. The app was fairly rushed to market and there may have been some corners cut. My advice was to uninstall it and I'd look into it. Little did I know...

Myhixel: Where Science, Innovation and “Self-Love” Combine

Sextech - it's a thing and it's not going anywhere! While at Goosed.ie we are lucky to get our hands on a rake of different tech to review for the good people of Ireland, every so often something lands on that is a little off the beaten track. Take that joke as you will. Anyway recently we were sent...

Hands-on Testing: How Do Huawei Phones Work Without Google?

P40 Pro with Huawei AppGallery and HMS
Today Huawei launched the long-awaited P40 Series. I say long-awaited, but I could also say "much-discussed" and maybe even "most controversial" when talking about this phone launch. The Huawei P40 series is the first major consumer phone launch for Huawei since the American Google was forbidden from officially supporting the Chinese manufacturer. I've been test-driving last year's Huawei Mate 30...

who launches covid-19 whatsapp info service
As Covid-19 spreads around the world, last week Ireland saw another issue spread like wildfire. Misinformation. It's impossible to know where it all came from because it was happening on WhatsApp. Messages from "best-mates" and "a friends who work in a hospital" bounced from smartphone to smartphone in record time. Another message spread that Revolut was in...

Just Eat Introduce Contactless Delivery

We're taking more cautions because of Covid-19. As a nation, we're taking unprecedented steps to stem the spread of a virus in our communities. Your social media feed is likely full of people panic-buying whatever is left on Tesco shelves. But, I'm a lazy man and one of the first things I thought throughout all of this was "I...

It was just a few years ago. We're maybe talking less than two and a half years ago. I would see people obsessing over craft beers and think they were quite silly. Big wanna be sommelier heads on them. Yet, I sit here now, sipping on a gorgeous double IPA called Ether by O Brother Brewing, preparing to review...
