One of my favourite tech things has to be augmented reality. My reason for loving augmented reality is simple; a lot of people are using it every day and have no idea. How is that? AR is the technology behind Snapchat filters and so is the reason you can morph your head into a puppy. As is often the...

Natural Cycles: Would You Trust a Birth Control App?

I’d like to think over the past few years, I’ve proven myself to be quite the tech advocate. From apps that force you to scan the barcode on your toothpaste to snooze an alarm to the latest smartphones. I’ve tested them all and I’m usually pretty positive, but only where positivity is due. Which leaves me in a pickle...

It's not long to go now until the nation goes to the polls. Personally, I'll be voting yes.

Payment Methods: A Wealth of Options to Spend

Recently I opened a new current account with a bank which offers Apple Pay as one of their payment methods. Being a bit of a technologist, I have an Apple watch (albeit a Series 1) to go alongside my Apple iPhone SE, but I also have a Kerv Payment ring.For those who don’t know about the Kerv ring, it is...

MyFitnessPal Hack: What Are Hashed Passwords?

I know I've tried many times to get fit and that journey usually starts with getting back into MyFitnessPal. The app helps you track your calorie intake and exercise to maintain a healthy balance of food and fitness. So popular is the app, in 2015 sports giant Under Armour bought it. They might be regretting that a little bit...

You Can Now Stream Netflix When You Travel

Portability of digital content services. Christ that sounds like the most boring thing ever. Let me sexy that up a little bit. Going to be out of the country for the All Ireland Hurling final?
