Dyson Air Purifier Review: Think About The Air You Breathe

Dyson-Pure-Hot-and-Cool-purifier-review
Some of my favourite gadgets completely challenge how I think about things. A while back I got a Meater smart cooking probe. Suddenly, I understood how cooking, something I do nearly everyday, actually works. My mind was blown. Dyson sent me a Pure Hot + Cool Air Purifier to test out for Pancake Tuesday. While that might sound odd,...

The Great Suspender: Can It Still Be Used Safely?

the great suspender malware
If you're a Chrome browser user, you may have noticed it likes to slow down your laptop with massive consumption of resources. Turning to extensions like The Great Suspender meant you could control how long tabs claimed these resources. Unfortunately, The Great Suspender ended up in the wrong hands and was filled with malware, but can you still use...

International Websites Destination Of Choice For Irish Shoppers

Irish shopping trends
Ireland has been very slow to adopt online shopping. That's a broad statement that needs a little bit of digging. Irish businesses, more specifically, have been slow to accept Irish shoppers want to spend online. Irish shoppers on the other hand have been more than happy to buy what they need from web stores. Today, PayPal has released figures...

Ireland’s Unlimited Mobile Data Networks

Ireland unlimited data plans
Do you remember when we used to care about data caps? It seems like a long long time ago, right? As someone who used to live with a 1GB Meteor limit, that's mind blowing that I live without worry of exceeding mobile data limits these days. I stream or download as much as I like. Cool, eh? Today, Virgin Media...

Bebo Is Coming Back This February

bebo is back this february
Last November, something weird happened. Bebo started trending on Twitter. There was no real reason for it. I assumed it was just a bit of luv for some nostalgia while being locked up at home. Given that the company had shifted focus towards other endevours, the social focus was gone for good surely? Apparently not. The people behind the...

What’s Happening With GameStop Stock On Wall Street?

One of my favourite movies of all time is The Big Short. It's all about how the financial sectors greed crashed markets in 2007 leading to a global recession. Good times. It's the kind of film you hoped would never get a sequel simply because another movie would be more bad news right? Well, right now, it feels like...

Dyson Corrale Review: Is This Hair Straightener Worth Buying?

dyson-corrale-review
I love reviewing tech. I love reviewing tech mainly because I get to play with lots of toys. From time to time, a new gadget puts me outside my comfort zone and I have to learn on the job. I love these reviews more than any other which is why I was delighted to see a hair straightener land...

The Netflix Effect: How What We Watch Shapes Who We Are

To state the obvious, 2020 was a rotten year. It was a year where nothing could be taken for granted and very few things were guaranteed. However, among the small group of things you could rely on there were two that stood out to me. People watching a lot of Netflix, and people trotting out the same tired joke...

Sage Bambino Plus Review: The Best Espresso Machine For Working From Home

sage bambino plus review
It's been a terrible year. I'm not going to dance around that. But when we look at the legacy of this pandemic, global acceptance of remote working or working from home will be one of the few positives we remember. The Irish government has introduced new legislation to encourage remote working and I would imagine the goal here is...

Dublin Smartphone Film Festival: Attend A Festival In Lockdown

Dublin Smartphone Film Festival 2021
Do you remember the really early days of lockdown where we weren't sure how much new entertainment we'd have for a while? Like, do you remember when Fair City stopped filming? They were some pretty dark days but thankfully they're somewhat behind us we've got some live sport and a limited amount of new Netflix to keep us going....
