Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast/Amazon Fire TV

I’ve recently been trying to sort out my home entertainment. I wanted to avoid signing up to Sky or Virgin TV as I find a lot of the programmes I watched when I had Sky were available elsewhere for cheaper or even free. I tried a Roku Player to begin with but I didn’t like it so in the end I returned it. I settled with an Amazon Fire TV and Google Chromecast. The Amazon Fire TV will only post to the UK so you will need to use a UK virtual address to get it delivered to Ireland. Currently,…

Sponsored Posts and Affiliate Links

I started this blog about a year ago as I always like to hear first hand reviews of services before deciding whether to sign up. It’s nice to know how services work in reality and not just how they are supposed to work. Around a year later I’m still blogging away and am surprised with how many views this site gets. This blog was never designed to make me rich – and believe me its not! However, I am looking to add a few more affiliate links to my posts in order to pay for the running costs of the…

AlcoSense Pro Fuel Cell Breathalyser – Review

I’ve always been very wary of driving over the limit and normally just don’t drive if I’ve had alcohol that day. However, the morning after it’s very difficult to work out when you’re under the limit. I purchased a breathalyser a few years ago which cost less than a tenner. I used it but was always worried with the results and wouldn’t drive if the unit picked up any alcohol in my breath at all. Recently I decided to invest in a much more accurate unit. The brand that seemed to stand out is AlcoSense. I purchased the AlcoSense Excel breathalyser…

Sending BitCoin using Trezor Wallet

I recently did a post about setting up a Trezor Hardware Wallet. This post will talk about sending bitcoin using the Trezor wallet. I decided not to do a post about receiving bitcoin as it is quite straightforward. To send money first plug in your Trezor device to your computer and navigate to the Trezor Wallet website. You will be asked to enter in your device PIN. Next select the Send tab. Enter in the bitcoin address you wish to send to and the amount. You can enter the amount in either Euro/USD/other currency or bitcoin and the wallet will calculate the other. You can then select…

Setting up a BitCoin Wallet with Trezor

I decided to invest in a hardware wallet to store my BitCoin, Ethereum and Lite Coins. The main three hardware wallets that I came across are Trezor, Keep Key and Ledger Nano S. I decided to purchase the Trezor as it seemed to be the most robust and had some security features I quite liked. This post isn’t designed to tell you to purchase a hardware wallet or if you do, to select Trezor over the others – it is just a review of how to get Trezor set up. With Bitcoin, if you lose your hardware wallet and don’t keep the seed…
