/What's Hot (and What's Not)

What's Hot!

Our regular look at the world around us, and what things affect us the most.

It's funny how some of todays hottest toys are but tomorrows has-been skip fodder. We seem to live in a throw away society where nothing seems to have any meaning any more and objects are mere commodities to enhance our 'street-cred'.

Here in the Red Squirrel offices we scour the internet, tabloids, trendy magazines and local skips in order to bring you the low down on what's cool to have and what you wouldn't want to be seen dead with.

Why not suggest something yourself? Feel free to email us

Ken Livingstone
He's not frightened to say what he thinks and stick to his principles.
Tony Blair
He's so insincere you can see the strings being pulled, plus a smile that makes you want to smack him in the face! Too much of a PR 'yes man'.

Crashes all the time, written by Microsoft, unreliable, written by Microsoft, lacking in security, written by Microsoft, bloated beyond belief, written by Microsoft and erm, did we say written by Microsoft?
