It is Criminal That This McLaren P1 GTR has Never Seen a Race Track and This is Your Opportunity to Fix That 
It hurts my heart to read that this custom ordered three-year-old McLaren P1 GTR hypercar has never set tire to race track, and has never been driven in anger. The odometer reads just 120 miles, and the listing at Canepa.com specifically states “never raced or tracked” which is a travesty. While the P1 GTR isn’t technically street legal anywhere, Mr. Canepa gets away with driving certain things on the street that aren’t legal because of who he is. But with 120 miles, it certainly has not been enjoyed to the extent that it was built for.
From one Bruce to another, this special one-off McLaren P1 GTR features both Bruce Canepa’s specially formulated “Canepa Green” and Bruce McLaren’s signature “Papaya Orange” paint. If it had been painted in one solid color, it might have been too much, but it looks just plain spectacular in both.

Fogknife : I must become anti-Republican to remain pro-humanity (6 minute read)
One by one, we could find a significant Fox News advertiser or partner that we might conceivably sway, and then use truth applied with intensity to encourage them to break off the relationship. (Apple, a paragon of capitalism that nonetheless strives to display a public interest in social justice, still seems to me a good initial target.) On success, we would choose the next target under the same criteria, and subject it to the same unwavering and many-voiced treatment. With time, effort, and luck, we’d start to see the whole mass shrivel and weaken, its ability to poison the American conversation muted.

Because that, ultimately, is how I plan to treat Republicanism, and all those who claim to represent it: recognize their speech as poison, and stifle it. Absolutely feel zero sympathy as they whine and rage and demand equal representation on every platform. The language spoken by Republicans is that of the devil himself, both tempting their fellow Americans and convincing themselves to trade away the entirety of the future for a second scoop of ice cream.

2020 Toyota Supra Colors – See It in Yellow, Blue, Red, and More
We're enjoying the new Supra's color palette, which includes some nice hues such as yellow and blue.
We have only seen the new Toyota Supra in a select few exterior colors—until now. Toyota's website now shows all eight of the new sports car's exterior hues, which include the following: Absolute Zero White, Nocturnal Black, Renaissance Red 2.0, Phantom Matte Gray, Tungsten Silver, Turbulence Gray, Nitro Yellow, and Downshift Blue. So we put together a gallery of the Supra outfitted in each of these paint options so that you can pick your favorite. There isn't a configurator live yet, but Toyota has released pricing and full info on the Supra's trim levels and options.
We're partial to blue and yellow, although the Launch Edition cars, which have red mirror caps and different wheels, look sharp too. These Launch Edition cars will be the first Supra models to reach dealerships sometime this spring, while Toyota says the rest of the colors won't be available until the fall.

Wait, what? [Ask PR]
“In order to stop automated bots, we cap the amount of identical, repetitive activity coming from one account in a short period of time, such as @mentioning people. These limits can have the unintended consequence of temporarily preventing real people like Dan Scavino from engaging in such activity, but lift in an hour or two, which is what happened in this case. We’ve been in touch with him and have apologized for the inconvenience.” - FB Spokesperson

Suburban Archaeology and America’s Architectural Commons | The American Conservative
Interesting article on the re-purposing of stores, particularly chains stores with distinctive looks, in various suburban commercial areas. Interesting stuff. No idea why it's in "The American Conservative" though.

Myspace loses all content uploaded before 2016 | Technology | The Guardian
More than 50m tracks from 14 million artists have been lost, including songs that led to the rise of the “Myspace Generation” cohort of artists, such as Lily Allen, Arctic Monkeys and Yeasayer. As well as music, the site has also accidentally deleted pictures and videos stored on its servers.

Even though many users had deserted Myspace by the end of the noughties for newer social networks such as Facebook, the site retained a significant user base well into this decade as musicians had cultivated their fan followings on it. A disastrous relaunch in 2013 led to most bands having to rebuild their communities from scratch.

Better Understanding Forms in React – JavaScript Inside – Medium
Due to the fact that React renders the component as soon as the state has changed, we can run the validation every time we render. That also means there is no need to keep any errors in state.

Cloud Computing without Containers
The Node or Python runtimes were meant to be run by individual people on their own servers. They were never intended to be run in a multi-tenant environment with thousands of other people’s code and strict memory requirements. A basic Node Lambda running no real code consumes 35 MB of memory. When you can share the runtime between all of the Isolates as we do, that drops to around 3 MB.

The first iPhone prototype: an exclusive look at Apple’s red M68 - The Verge
Apple’s red iPhone M68 in all its glory
“This is a day I’ve been looking forward to for two and half years,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s late CEO, as he introduced the original iPhone on January 9th, 2007.
Apple had developed the iPhone in secret over those two and a half years, and for many inside the company, the device had only been known by the codenames “M68” and “Purple 2.” Apple was focused on surprising everyone with the iPhone, and that meant that many of the engineers working on the original handset didn’t even know what it would eventually look like.
To achieve that level of secrecy, Apple created special prototype development boards that contained nearly all of the iPhone’s parts, spread out across a large circuit board. The Verge has obtained exclusive access to the original iPhone M68 prototype board from 2006 / 2007, thanks to Red M Sixty, a source that asked to remain anonymous. It’s the first time this board has been pictured publicly, and it provides a rare historical look at an important part of computing history, showing how Apple developed the original iPhone.

Coders’ Primal Urge to Kill Inefficiency—Everywhere | WIRED
Christopher Thorpe, a veteran of more than a half-dozen tech firms, told me about “an incredibly talented engineer” he once worked with who fit that bill. “He was very upset with me that we told jokes in all our meetings, because we were wasting time. ‘Why are we spending five minutes having fun with 20 people in the office? This is work time.’ Everybody is laughing—but, you know, you’re wasting all this valuable time.” The joke had frittered the time of 20 people! This guy would begin rattling off the math: “Five minutes times 20, that’s like, you know, you’ve wasted an hour and a half of person-time on these jokes.”
