Always a great gift idea for a loved one who has never fully embraced their coffee addiction, but you’re never entirely sure if you should be believing George Clooney when he’s selling you coffee things on the telly. But then you find out that he’s selling espresso machines and that’s apparently an entirely different thing so you have to keep looking? Never fear, Ebuzz.ie is here, along with our three picks for the best coffee making machines on the market.

1. Dolce Gusto Jovia by Delonghi

Definitely the sexiest design, plus it has the quality of a Nespresso without the price-tag of one. Other handy features – the bigger than average water-tank, the auto-off system, the wide variety of products to go with it – make it our best in show.


2. Starbucks Verismo 600

Take a walk down your street there. How many branches of Starbucks did you pass by? We’re guessing at least eleven. But now thanks to the Verismo, you need never leave your house again to get that patented Starbucks-flavoured fix.


3. AEG Favola

Big fan of cappuccinos? Then this is the one for you, as the AEG brings that frothy head you can’t live without, plus the sturdy industrial look should go with just about any kitchen design.

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment.

For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook.
