  • I listen to Jessica Kelly in Podcasts. I enjoy her technology reviews. I think she is interesting and progressive. I wish her well on her shows with Pat Kenny.

  • Hi Jess,

    Firstly, I’m a fan of your weekly tech slot.

    You mentioned a tablet suitable for a young child that’s sold in Argos on this weeks newstalk. What’s was it?

    Regards, Barry

  • Excellent interview this evening with farmer & Caitriona whelan on adult learning . So important in our lives to be able to read write & use technology

  • Hi Jess I want to ask you about my landline hope you can help. I work as a meter reader contracted to the ESB. Believe it or not we still use dial up modems to send our work to the ESB. It is a condition of my employment that I would have a working landline, and they prefer Eir for that purpose. From time to time we will have problems uploading and the first question asked is are you with Eir? This seems, in the minds of the ESB staff at least that Eir has the best phone lines.

    That said and done, Eir has become VERY expensive lately and I see no end to their prices rising.

    I have been on Bonkers and can get an alternative service for nearly half that of Eir, would it be safe for me to change to them from Eir? I only use and need my landline for this purpose. I also have fibre broadband from Eir but there are hundreds of suppliers for this so I am not worried about that.

  • Hi Jess, well done to you, the Newstalk show is really good and you make the topic accessible to non-techies like me.. I can never remember specs and such so I am using your old articles on the website to spec a laptop — a new job so I need a laptop for more frequent travel. Way too much choice — and the last time I bought a leptop, for my son, I messed up. It must have zero memory as it cannot save/store anything. So there’s still 2 of ypur Laptop for Students articles on the website, which are a great help
    Best regards and all the success for the future, Eamon
