Nissan Qashqai 2014 Diesel – 74 mpg, auto parking and more tech than a space shuttle [Review]

You remember the old days, when getting into a car meant sucking up fuel like a jumbo jet, and the coolest bit of tech on tap would be the electric windows? Yeah, well they’re long gone. Nowadays the whole point of designing a new car seems to be to demonstrate how much technology you can cram into a small tin box without making the sides bulge too much.

BMW i3 Electric Car – our first test drive of this cool all electric urban rocket [Video]

The new BMW i3 all electric car has been causing a bit of a stir recently, which is not surprising since it’s the first totally electric car to emerge from the German giant. The big surprise is that rather than produce a predictable luxury electric vehicle which you’d expect from the marque, the designers have gone for an eminently practical city runabout, but with an edge.

THL W8S – solid, fast quad core budget phone makes the Galaxy S4 look a little over priced [Review]

The idea that you can only guarantee top quality smartphone quality from a big name brand is fast becoming an old concept.

One of the things about carrying a camera around with you inside your mobile phone is the fact that sometimes you need to take photos which require a little more inventiveness than just point and shoot.
