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...

Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Review

Not long ago I was testing not 1 but 2 different Lenovo laptops. We get to try out a bunch of tech in Goosed Tower but it's not everyday we get a couple of high powered laptops landing on our desks to play with. Let me start with the Lenovo Yoga slim 7 retailing for about €900. Anyone who...

Apple Launches AirPods Max: Over-ear Headphones

Apple Airpods Max
I don't normally cover announcements. I'm more of a review guy but being honest, I'm not sure I'll even need to review these headphones to arrive at a conclusion. Apple has teased a pair of headphones for years to join their popular AirPod family. Today, they've launched the AirPods Max. Don't let the name fool you. These are headphones. Features...

Revolut Business Launches Online Payments Solution At Web Summit

Right, I get it. Goosed.ie is a consumer tech site and this is a very business-related update but bear with me. Today at Web Summit, Revolut announced that they are launching a payments solution for business owners. This means if you're a Revolut Business customer, you'll be able to start accepting payments through your website. This is good news...

Because of Brexit, we're all going to start seeing things change in the coming weeks. I have a feeling we're going to be feeling a lot more European than we used to! If you're a Revolut customer, today you'll have received an email saying your account has moved to Lithuania. Here's what that's all about. Why Is Revolut Moving My...

Bolt Launches New Taxi Hailing Service In Ireland

Luke Mackey launches Bolt Ireland
I've had plenty of experience with taxi-hailing services and on both sides of the discussion too. Not every taxi driver like these apps and not every experience I've had has been positive. But, in general, hailing apps are handy for a host of reasons. That's why I've found news that Bolt is launching a new taxi-hailing service in Ireland...

Manna Completes Incredible Live Demo At Web Summit

Web Summit has gone virtual this year, and I have to admit it's rather impressive. While I miss the hustle and bustle of the RDS and have never made it to Lisbon, running from talk to talk without the sweat and panic of missing something has a certain draw to it. Today, Bobby Healy from Manna also demonstrated that...

Three Launches 3 Store Connect: A Virtual Personal Shopping Service

I don't know how many ways articles like this can be opened in 2020. We've heard them all a million times. "It's been a challenging year" and all that jazz. While pubs are no doubt some of the hardest businesses hit, retailers have had to adapt and adopt quicker than ever. Nothing had driven businesses towards improving online experiences...

Kindle Paperwhite Review: Is It Worth Buying?

kindle paperwhite
For years, I was adamant that I would never get an e-reader, mostly because of the fact that I love having the physical book way too much. I just didn’t think that it would be the same, and I couldn’t see myself ever actually using it or at least not enough to actually make buying one worth it. But...

Revolut Web Launches In Ireland

I've been a massive fan of Revolut for many years. The only-only bank makes splitting bills with friends and family a non-event. Recently, Revolut teamed up with Irish charities for some awesome new fund-raising features. Along with a pretty neat Rewards section in their app too, Revolut never ceases innovating. A welcome change in the banking space given traditional...
