Remember when we told you how to make a reservation for the Tesla Model 3?

Well now, it’s here (sort of), but it won’t ship to customers till late 2017. Instead, what we’ve got is more details about the car, the opportunity to preorder, and a ton of pictures. Works fine for me. And get this: Elon says Tesla has received more than 130,000 pre-orders already for the Model 3, which is more than anyone anticipated.

Chew on that, if you had any doubts that electric cars are the future. Aaaand it looks amazing.

Here’s what we know. The base model of the car will cost around $35,000 and go over 215 miles on a single charge. It will do 0-60 mph in under 6 seconds (0-100 kmph real quick), with the more expensive options going “much faster”. All versions of the Model 3 will support Tesla’s supercharging network (those are free charging stations that charge your cars fully in minutes, not hours).

Because it’s a mass market car, Tesla has to worry about stuff like legroom, cargo capacity and all the other stuff that medium-sized families care about in a car. And Elon has nailed all that with this one. “You can fit a 7-foot long surfboard on the inside”.

I’m really not sure what to say at the end of this post, because I’m so blown away. So, I’m just going to stick in a bunch of Model 3 pictures and let you drool like I just did. Bye.

The vice presidential debate is over and Nigerian Twitter is awash with comments about how smart some of the candidates’ responses were and how some others simply fell hand. Anticipation ahead of the elections is building just as is excitement around the potential usefulness of blockchain technology across various fields. Sadly, some of us may not even get the chance to cast a vote next year.

As far as I can recall, I’ve owned seven phones in the last nine years, four of which forcefully ended up with people who needed them more than I did. Out of the remaining three, I recall handing one down to a younger sibling and disposing another in a waste bag during spring cleaning. I haven’t given much thought to where my current phone will end up when it no longer serves its purpose. Until now.
