As promised, Tesla's Model 3 is now available to order in the United Kingdom.
It was quite a long wait for UK citizens, who were able to reserve their place in line to get a Model 3 as far back as 2016 — but better late than never, no?

The pricing (with destination and documentation fee included) starts at £38,900 for the Partial Premium Interior model with a rear-wheel drive. The Long Range model with a dual motor and an all-wheel drive costs £47,900, and the Performance variant costs £56,900.
If you switch to the Payment screen on the Model 3 order page you'll also get Tesla's estimate on fuel savings; for example, for the £38,900 variant, this estimate is £9,500. Note that in the U.S., this number is far lower at $4,500 — and while the U.S. does have cheaper gas than the UK, I'm still not certain that I understand Tesla's math here. Read more...

While there are a slew of beginner-friendly languages out there, one that generates almost no hype — but really deserves more attention — is Ruby on Rails.
To be clear, Ruby on Rails isn't a programming language, per se. Rather, it's a web application framework: a collection of shortcuts written in Ruby, which enables users to circumvent learning a bunch of esoteric programming jargon while building web apps super fast. Ruby on Rails — unlike, say, the Notorious P.H.P. — won't make you sob after few minutes of coding, because it actually reads like English.

From the very first scene of the very first season of Game of Thrones, the story seemed to make us a promise: There is a larger mystery at the heart of this world. And you should not forget it.
Before even learning their names, we watch the three characters who open the show fall victim to an ancient and sinister otherworldliness. All but one is systematically slaughtered by creatures of untold power, unknown motivation, and inhuman brutality.
It was the enigma that launched the largest cultural phenomenon in TV history. Who were these beings? What did they want? Why were they massacring humans? What made them come back? Read more...

Ever wanted to sit in the Iron Throne? Well, Jimmy Kimmel gave a bunch of random pedestrians in LA the chance. But there was a price to be paid.
"The gang at Game of Thrones was kind enough to lend us the Iron Throne," explains Kimmel in the clip above. "We gave some people walking by on Hollywood Boulevard the chance to sit in it and share the most menacing thing they have ever done."
Some of the anecdotes above are indeed menacing. But mainly they're a mixture of disturbing, awkward and — especially in the case of the final woman, who is clearly an IRL Lady Olenna — just plain hilarious. Read more...

Emilia Clarke, actual royalty, dropped into Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about "The Long Night," the epic third episode of Game Of Thrones' eighth season.
It took 55 nights to film the extraordinary episode, and the cast and crew would stay up all night to shoot its long, fiery scenes.
"What you saw was really what it was like shooting it," Clarke told of the Battle of Winterfell episode. "You saw blood and mud, and angry, screaming people."
Clarke also talked through how her scenes on the dragon came together, and how co-star Kit Harington learnt to ride them — although with much more pain. Read more...

Drake knows an MVP when he sees one, and this week's was definitely Arya Stark.
The hip hop superstar accepted his Billboard Music Award on Wednesday with a cheeky shout out to the Stark powerhouse and her work in Game of Thrones Season 8, episode 3, when that happened.

With Tesla test drives scaled back, your options to check out a Model 3 or Model S sedan are limited enough that you may need to turn to virtual reality to see the car before you buy it.
Oculus's new VR headset could become the next best way to check out cars without going to a dealership or car lot — or in Tesla's case, without buying the car sight unseen.
The Oculus Quest was officially announced this week at Facebook's F8 conference and when it arrives on May 21 for $399 most of the attention will be on how it performs for gaming apps. For the non-gamers out there, however, the headset can give you a glimpse at what thousands of cars look like. It's one of the many non-gaming uses for VR that's getting a boost with the new device.

"The future is private," Mark Zuckerberg declared, as he awkward-laughed his way through his annual keynote at Facebook's F8 conference. For Zuckerberg, the event was his chance to sell the world on his vision to turn Facebook into a a "privacy-focused" social network.
To make that happen he plans to rebuild many of the company's core services, including:
A redesigned Facebook that emphasizes groups and Stories more than News Feed
A redesigned Messenger app that also allows you to chat with friends on WhatsApp and Instagram (details on how are still sketchy). It will also have a new social tab for interacting with small groups of friends.
A redesigned Instagram camera that makes it easier to use Stories like you might have once used News Feed Read more...
