By Alannah Kenny | February 18, 2019 | (No) | 781
Since the 1970’s, Nintendo have been producing consoles that have entertained the generations and it’s likely that their success will continue for years to come.

By Alannah Kenny | December 2, 2018 | (No) | 312
In the past couple of years, we have seen phones change drastically. From touchscreen to face recognition and from Siri to having the phone actually make calls. The sizes of phones have also increased, and many have been worried that having a huge phone will be a inconvenience or like carrying a big brick around trying to make a call. Is that still the stigma we have around phones or has everyone suddenly decided to let that go as they stay buried in the newest technologies. Regardless of what t..

Challenges Facing Novice Media Content Creators

By Alannah Kenny | October 13, 2018 | (No) | 1985
The words content creator may not be a new phenomenon. Online content creation however is reasonably modern and has spawned some of Ireland’s and the world’s top media influencers.

One of the most disheartening announcements that we hear more and more frequently these days are the closures of once popular record stores as a result of the digital age taking over.
