  1. 'Inside Team McLaren' on Amazon Video

    Congratulations to McLarenF1 on their new sponsor at Barcelona F1 Testing - they can't blame Honda anymore.
  2. New BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe

    or the AMG-GT...
  3. F1's 'Halo' cockpit is coming in 2017

    In-car Halo view looks ****
  4. This looks promising and a reasonable price, although in the UK you might be waiting until 2025 when the $KY expires - VPN anyone
  5. Brabham Are Trying To Crowd Fund Their Way Back To F1

    They've launched at last .... sort of. Sir Jack’s son David Brabham (a Le Mans winner in his own right) is bringing the family name back into the automotive sphere with the launch of Brabham Automotive. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of David Brabham launching his own initiative. Back in 2014, he tried to crowd-fund Project Brabham as a new racing team. But that project never seems to have gotten off the ground. Now it would appear he’s turning his gaze, much like his father did, on constructing cars. Just what the new firm will produce, we don’t know, but we’d wager there’s some sort of road-going (or perhaps track-focused) performance automobile in its future.
  6. CCTV might be getting hacked

    HiKVision has extremely poor security and has been hacked before. Keep updatíng that firmware - if they ever bother to patch it correctly. The backdoor vulnerability which got you has been present in Hikvision products since at least 2014.

  10. 'Inside Team McLaren' on Amazon Video

    McLaren has announced American-based multinational computer company Dell Technologies as a new sponsor for the 2018 Formula 1 season.

"Dell Technologies, which consists of seven global brands – Dell, Dell EMC, Pivotal, RSA, Secureworks, Virtustream and VMware – will bring its deep technology expertise to all McLaren Technology Group companies, including McLaren Racing and McLaren Applied Technologies, as well as benefitting McLaren’s esports programme, World’s Fastest Gamer.
  11. iMac Pro Performance

    Bet you wouldn’t say that in front of your wife
  12. iMac Pro Performance

    RAM and SSD prices have increased recently but they still won’t break the bank. Something like 45 quid for a 4GB module and 80 for an extra 8GB module. An easy 5min upgrade I’d see how the machine runs before upgrading, I find a fast win 10 machine doesn’t need as much ram as past operating systems Long term driver support would be one of my main concerns on an unbranded machine.
  13. iMac Pro Performance

    If you want a lightweight, energy efficient laptop then I'd say those specs are ok. But for light gaming / video editing / accounts, it will struggle. I'd rather (for around the same budget) be looking at something like this: it's got a significantly faster 7th Gen i5 processor, 15.6" HD display and a DVDRW drive should you want to pump out some home movies - is that still a thing? On the downside, it only has 4GB RAM (one spare slot for an upgrade) & has the same 128GB M.2 HDD but USB3 memory sticks are cheap enough. If you want a 1080p 13.3" display then this could be the closest match (with a much better CPU): You can save about £50 on those prices by specing a 1TB HDD/6th Gen i3 instead of the 128GB M.2 SSD.
  14. Arch has the 4th Gen R, the newer 5th Gen is even more angular and pointy.
