DJI Mavic Mini Review: A Somewhat Affordable Gateway Drone

dji mavic mini ireland
Last week I finally ticked something off my tech bucket list. Well, actually two things. Fly a drone Buy a drone These two things went nice and hand in hand because of the new DJI Mavic Mini being very fairly priced. Wintery weather took a brief break last week and quick as a flash, I was out in Sandymount to...

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...

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...

Amazon in Ireland: Free UK Shipping And Some Other Tips

Amazon Ireland work around amazon free UK delivery to Ireland
With Brexit still around the corner in what seems to be a never-ending corridor of WTF, shopping over on Amazon.co.uk is still an option for consumers in Ireland. Actually, it looks like it won't be going anywhere any time soon. I'll be honest, I fully expected Amazon Ireland to appear in the two years since the UK announced they...

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...

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.

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

u-mask review
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 more than just protect others. They are a symbol that the wearer understands there is...

Closca Face Mask Review: Reusable, Sustainable, Filter Cloth Face Mask

Face masks or face coverings are set to become mandatory in Ireland. While making them mandatory is a positive step for public health, it brings with it a risk of increased waste as a result of single-use, disposable masks. I've been testing out a reusable filtered cloth face mask produced by Closca Design. Here's everything you need to know...

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...

Huawei FreeBuds Pro Review: Incredible ANC Earbuds

huawei freebuds pro review
I've been writing about Huawei products for a few years now. It started out with phones, most recently the Huawei P40 Pro. More recently Huawei has shifted focus to accessories, namely wearables. I'm currently testing the impressive Huawei Watch GT2 Pro smartwatch and FreeBuds Pro earbuds. This particular review is the latter as I seek to determine whether or...
