Tapping your card for small payments has become second nature rather quickly. In fact, it's become so popular one UK bank is overhauling what we bank cards look like all together. Of course, some of us might not even be using cards any more considering we can use smartphones and wearables to pay for purchases. Typing a pin number...

Eufy Security Review: Smart Wireless Home Security

I've had a lot of jobs in my life. One of them is the hallmark job of a man who's had a lot of jobs; door-to-door salesman. I sold house alarms, or as I would tell people "I'm selling peace of mind". Yeah, I'm not proud of that chapter in my life, but it did give me quite a...

PlayStation 5 Console Review: Too Little Of A Good Thing?

playstation 5 review
The PlayStation 5 is finally here! Well, kind of. A shortage of stock on launch day has meant that, for a lot of people, the next generation of console gaming is still some time away. However, Sony has confirmed that more units will reach Irish shores before Christmas. Tesco has already started calling people who missed out on the...

Google Pixel 5 Review: Pure Android Class

pixel 5 review
I've put myself into a bit of a technological experiment for the last few months. I tested out the Huawei P40 Pro and went all-in on the experience. Because the phone doesn't support Google Apps, I started to live without Google. I really mean it, right down to the search engine I use daily. I thought it went quite...

OnePlus 5 Review: OnePlus 5 Equals Mobile Happiness

Having lived with the new OnePlus 5 for a month now, I feel I'm ready to give it a proper no holds barred review. Like many others, for years I've been a slave to two mobile devices; one for work, one for personal use. Working in the telecoms industry for the last 19 years and the nature of the...

U-Mask Review: Comfy Reusable Mask For Long Term Wear

u-mask review
U-Mask are have had their certification methods questioned and have been banned in Italy. Learn More. I was in Seoul last year and I saw people wearing masks regularly as they commuted. It was a foreign concept to me. The air and indeed the subway seemed clean to me. I looked into it and discovered in Asian countries masks do...

Huawei FreeBuds 3i Review: €99 For Excellence

I was a driven anti-AirPod guy. I was against everything they stood for. The death of the headphone jack, the commercial monster that is Apple and the style of them. Everything irked me. Then, I realised it was time to say goodbye to the headphone jack. Apple actually builds some pretty great products. And the design of AirPods means...

Huawei FreeBuds 4i Review: €79 Buds Delivering Everything You Need

Huawei freebuds 4i review
It’s no secret that Huawei phones have lost a bit of their appeal since Google was banned from working with them. Every cloud has a silver lining. While there's no sign of the Biden Administration helping out, Huawei has started to invest heavily in other areas of their business to create gadgets that support smartphones. While the likes of...

Enod Audio Wireless Earbuds Review: Incredible Sound and Value

You'd think that being close to technology and playing with gadgets all the time would lead to it all becoming a little stagnant. Yet I'm still taken aback by how fast technology moves on a regular basis. Last year, just after testing the Sony WH-1000MX2, and being mighty impressed by them, I bought the Sony WF-1000X. Great sound quality, but...

Smart Helmet Review: Livall BH51M Neo Packed With Features

livall BH51 NEO review
It's a bit of a cliche but cycling is going through a bit of a golden age in Ireland right now. People are flooding to bikes to avoid public transport. It's nothing but great news and I've been keeping my eye on some tech for cyclists. In the coming weeks, I'll be checking out a few bits and pieces....
