The Red Ferret Throwback Machine (bringing you the best from the Red Ferret archives)


As you may know dear readers, the Red Ferret is one of the original technology/gadget blogs, having been started by our esteemed founder Nigel back in 2000.  Since then the Red Ferret crew has published more than 20,000 articles covering all sorts of weird, incredible and downright ridiculous stuff! Anyway, we thought it might be interesting to take a regular look back at some of the most popular posts from our recent (and not-so-recent) history. So here you go:

The 12v in-car microwave oven promised the ultimate convenience on the go. Unfortunately for many, the deadly device often caused radiation burns, lap scalds, and users who inexplicably glowed in the dark for several days after use. Just kidding! It’s still listed at, but sadly the item seems to be out of stock. One brave Youtube user risked his own life for a silent-movie-style product review. Check it out below. Does he love it? Does he hate it?  Did he survive? We’ll never know because he never talks!

Pixel truths

In this article, our founder illustrates the need to focus on more than just pixel count when buying a digital camera. He even diligently tested cutting edge TWO and THREE megapixel cameras and found unimpressive results compared to lower MP models. Digital photography sure has changed since then, but Nigel’s point is still valid. There is more to camera quality than mega pixels! You can still read the original post from here.
