How To Avoid Accidentally Paying For A Free Trial

avoid wasting money with online trials
Ugh! This is my absolute biggest pet hate. I despise being lured into trying out a new service online with a free trial only to have them ask me for my card details. I totally understand the idea behind it is removing that barrier to continuing after your trial. I do get it. But the truth is people often...

Jelle’s Marble Runs: MarbleLympics 2020 Gets John Oliver Sponsorship

The Marble League 2020
I miss sports. I'm a Liverpool fan. Two wins away from the first league in thirty years. I'm a F1 fan too. The new season was paused hours before it was due to start. All of that said, there are more important things to life than sports. However, there are plenty of people who get through to their workweek...

PayPal Launches QR Code Payments In Ireland

Have you found yourself noticing more and more how often you have contact with strangers? Even remembering some things that we used to do that probably won't happen anymore? For me, one of those things is buying items on websites like Adverts.ie. That's going to change forever and today PayPal announced a new contactless way to pay in person...

Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT Review: If It’s Good Enough For Lady Gaga?

ATH-M50xBT review
Lady Gaga part-organised the amazing One World Concert. The event raised around €118 million for Covid-19 causes. It was an incredible event. I also noticed that I have become a bit of a headphone nerd while watching it. As all of these superstars from around the world played their well-known tunes, Lady Gaga came on the screen. I blurted...

HP Spectre x360 13 Review: The Realistic Windows Alternative to MacBook

hp spectre x360 13 review
When I was younger, I used to turn my nose up at Apple devices. Overpriced and oversimplified software sitting on underused hardware. I still feel that way about iPhone, but I have a MacBook Pro and an iPad. They're probably two of my favourite gadgets. They work so well. Which left me a little worried when HP sent over...

How to Download Free Magazines And Newspapers To Your Tablet Or Phone

One thing has become abundantly clear in isolation. Technology, while often criticised for privacy and anti-social reason, has massive power to connect us all. I'd argue that tech, in general, has helped many reconnect with friends and family more than ever. Tech can also help you reconnect with an old friend you may have forgotten about. I'm not on...

Ryanair SEO: Did Someone Try To Hide The Ryanair Website?

is ryanair trying to hide from google?
We're used to hearing about the Ryanair CEO, Michael O' Leary. I can assure you, the title of this article isn't a typo. Indeed, this is about SEO or Search Engine Optimisation. Right now, the Ryanair website has an issue which is stopping search engines like Google from seeing new content the airline publishes. But what exactly is going...

Closca Launch Sustainable Facemask Amid Increased Demand

closca reusable sustainable facemask
There's a wee company in Spain called Closca. Their motto is to inspire change. A few months back they sent me a foldable helmet which I used on my scooter. The review is coming, but I need to wait for scooters to be legal here first. But the helmet is amazing. Closca does think differently. They prioritise design and...

Western Digital My Cloud Home Review: Fix Your Full Dropbox

Recently I reviewed the new Huawei P40 Pro. Most people are getting caught up on the challenge people face with using a phone that doesn't support Google Apps. I used it for weeks without much hassle. I've also managed up load Google onto it. Ultimately, for me, the P40 Pro is a fantastic phone and I wouldn't let a...

Micromobility: UK Government To Fast Track Legalisation Of Electric Scooters

uk fast track electric scooter trials
I think we can all agree the UK has been on one hell of a combo streak of cock-ups lately. I'm not going to dwell on those because today they've taken a simple step which has left me just a tiny bit jealous would you believe. Originally planned to be made legal in 2021, the UK Government has taken...
