It’s Over!

  • by

Well after my long battle against media publicity of recessions and economic weakness the OECD have said that they believe the global downturn (cough, cough, splutter) is over. It now seems as though they have great faith in the Irish economy and the future. Ah, isn’t that sweet! source: The Irish Times Note: Irish Times… Read More »It’s Over!

Thank’yaw Come Again

  • by

I don’t normally use stereotypes on my subject lines but I think that the catchphrase of Apu from The Simpsons is more than apt for this item.

Interesting piece of technology that for a small monthly fee will deliver extact time, weather and other information to your watch. Make you wonder why anyone… Read More »Spot Watch or Stop Watch

If only the Irish market had such imminent plans for the roll-out of broadband infrastructure. Sadly it seems like we’ll still be stuck on the end of a jitter filled line banging our POTS until the cows come home long after the entire of the UK are surfing like they got caught up in a… Read More »BT Broadband

Apple vs RIAA

  • by

And so the eternal battle of the RIAA against all that share and share alike could very well be their last blip on the radar. This article highlights some very interesting points as to how the music industry could soon turn on those whom speak for it at the moment. Why you ask? Well better… Read More »Apple vs RIAA
