Mike McCue said that the soul of the website is the content and that some day the way it is displayed, is destined to change.

"Interestingly enough the solution has been right under our noses for decades - it's print: magazines, newspapers," the Telegraph quoted McCue, as saying.
"This is how this content wants to be displayed online, beautiful photo taking the prominent role in the viewing, surrounded by beautiful typography and pieces of text in right place to create a sense of rhythm and a story," he said displaying a photo of a stylish Jaguar.
