Introducing Chris, the new digital assistant for drivers

You might know that the Goosed team recently attended the Dublin Tech Summit. It was actually great craic, some great Dublin weather meant the beer garden was mandatory and while that was fun we had more craic wandering the halls of the convention center and chatting with some of the next generation of game changing technology.

Last week on Twitter someone asked me to refresh an article I did a few years back. It was the top Amazon Alexa Skills to install on your Amazon Echo device. I really need to get around to updating our own skill because I'm sure most houses now have some sort of Echo device in them. The...

mate 30 pro launch date
While the Huawei P20 Pro blew me away last year, the Mate 20 Pro redefined what a smartphone should be. A year later and after falling in love with the sublime P30 Pro all over, I'm left wondering.

bike sharing

This was shortly after myself and the lads of Goos3D were genuinely using the old Nokia 3310 while raising money for the Irish Cancer Society. While the new 3310 managed...
