India, F1 and homes of the future...

As part of his recent trip to India, Steve Ranger visited the campus of IT company Satyam in Hyderabad (above), which includes a swimming pool and golf course as well as a zoo with a variety of animals - including emus and rabbits.

See what else Satyam is doing to help keep its employees enjoy their work in the full photo story.

The Ideal Home Show at Earl's Court has gone high-tech this year. As well as the giant show-homes - such as the ones above (which have a sustainable living theme this year) - there's plenty to interest gadget fans.

From the look of things, networked kitchens and bedrooms will be all the rage in a few years.

See what else is in store in the full photo story.

With technology and Formula One more closely associated than ever, Tim Ferguson went along to the launch of the 2007 Williams F1 car at the team's base at Grove, Oxfordshire.

The new car (above) looked impressive and performances in testing and at the first race in Melbourne two weeks ago suggest the team could be in for a much more successful season in 2007.

See more pictures from the launch here.

While in Pune, we asked whether the city has the potential to be the next Bangalore for IT and outsourcing.

From the pretender of Indian tech cities to the established boom town, our India special report moved from Pune to Bangalore.

The Tesco Hindustan Service centre in Bangalore has been the IT development centre of the UK supermarket chain since 2004. Tesco was among the first major international retailers to have a fully owned support-centre in India.

See how else the tech industry has had an impact in Bangalore here.

silicon.com's Steve Ranger also checked out Electronics City - home to big tech names such as Infosys - while he was in Bangalore.

This photo shows one of the new buildings (peeking through in the centre) which is just in development.

There are plenty of examples of these impressive structures - which are a testament to Bangalore's boomtown reputation - in our full photo story.
