Video has emerged of a prototype Microsoft/Nokia Windows Phone model, one codenamed "McLaren" that was supposed to be a high-end model to replace the Lumia 1020 and offer a new 3D Touch interface option. It never came out, obviously, else we'd remember not buying it. Read More >>

Leaked Images Show What Could’ve Been a Lumia 1020 Successor

When the Lumia 1020 launched last summer with its bulbous 41-megapixel camera, it was a weird looking smartphone that found favour with the photography-inclined.

F1 Cars, With Just Their Sponsors’ Logos Visible

Modern F1 cars are so plastered with advertising that, without the actual chassis of the car being visible, you can still make out the whole outline of the speed machines. In fact, removing the car from the equation turns them into stunning works of art, especially the Lotus. Read More >>

46.7 Megapixels of Amazing British McLaren Racing Cars

From F1 through Le Mans to the immense P1, and even the fantastically good MP4-12C (shame about the name), McLaren really knows how to build stupendous cars. And the beauty is that they're not made in Italy, or Germany, or America for that matter, they're made right here in Britain; in Woking to be exact. That should be something to feel proud of, right?
