EA Play Now Free For All Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Members

The mental battle in my mind rages between which console I'm going to opt for this year. Yes, I know it's a bit odd that I've not caved and picked yet, a bit like that undecided voter on election day in the US. If this sounds like you, you've decided on Xbox Series X or are just ignoring it...

Joe Biden Victory Speech Had A Drone Light Show

After four years of metaphorical fireworks under Donald Trump, it's nice to celebrate some actual fireworks after Joe Biden was confirmed as President-Elect in a close run U.S. Presidential battle. During his drive-in victory speech in Delaware the President-Elect said "the whole world is watching America" and I don't think he was wrong. While I'm delighted with Biden's election...

What Does A Biden Win Mean For Huawei And TikTok?

what does biden win mean for huawei
I partially don't want to tempt fate too much writing this as it's still not definite that Biden will win the United States Presidential Election. But I also want to look at the issues America has had with Chinese companies like Huawei and TikTok and, more importantly, how a Biden win will impact these relationships. To be honest, going...

Virgin Media Gigabit Broadband Review: Now Available For 1.4 Million Homes

I usually start these articles with a big-eyes trip down memory lane. Plugging my PC into the phone-line and not even knowing that Limewire was illegal. Great times. You can read all about those times from my article back in August when Virgin Media launched the availability of Gigabit broadband to the vast majority of their customer base. I...

GoMo Launches Special Revolut Offer: How Does It Weigh Up?

Not that long ago, Revolut launched a rewards section in their online banking app. Personally I didn't expect much from it. Even though the online-only bank has well over one million customers in Ireland, it's not unusual to see apps like this ignore the Irish market. I got this one totally wrong. Revolut has released several offers specifically for...

OPPO Reno 4 Pro 5G Review: A New Challenger Brand Enters Irish Market

OPPO Reno 4 Pro 5G
Over the years there's no denying smartphones have gotten a little bit boring. Samsung and Apple were sucking the fun out of new phones until Huawei entered the market. After years of wild innovation from the Chinese manufacturer, Trump's America called a halt to the craic. While Huawei has impressively launched several phones and developed the Huawei AppGallery at...

Dirt 5 Review: Lots Of Mucky Fun

You learn a lot about a racing game when you're halfway through the first corner. With F1 2020 it was realising I didn't get the tyres warm enough while the other AI cars stuck to the racing line and braking points significantly better than I did. Forza was something similar and you know what, it makes sense when you...

Black Friday 2020: The Deals Start Earlier Than Ever

You know what? It's been that kind of a year. Normally, I'd be giving out about the Christmas trees going up the morning after Halloween but screw it. Go on and enjoy yourselves. Leave it up until the middle of March if you want an all. 2020 has been proof that time is just a construct we all agree...

Flying Elephant Desk: An Irish-made Work From Home Desk

Flying elephant desk
Every now and then I stop and assess just how bonkers a year it has been. I’ve laughed every time that I’ve seen the meme doing the rounds about corporate change and who drove it. Was it your CEO, COO or COVID-19? It’s a joke, but it’s also really not. For years company decision makers have refused to adopt...
