When you think American-made automobiles, your mind is likely to default to Detroit. The Motor City has long had a reputation as the heartbeat of the US auto industry. But occasionally, another state will get in on the fun and push Tiger Country way beyond its limits. That’s what has happened with the Lucra L148, a carbon fiber bullet of a car that possesses a 4.7-liter V8 engine and acceleration not unlike the warp speed you see in Star Trek movies.
California is the home of this baby, and it’s a child worth being proud of. The Lucra L148 is capable of pushing it from zero to 60 miles per hour in a mind-boggling 2.5 seconds which competes with the Lamborghini Elemento. The body is sleek and menacing with a nice combination of smooth slopes and sharp curves. It’s definitely a major arrival on the domestic auto scene, and it’s only the company’s second release. Save the pennies, kids, because this one is worth your time.

Twitter has announced an update to its apps for iOS and Android as well as TweetDeck for Web, Chrome and PC (and Mac soon) that bring a renewed focus on direct messaging. The app now features a direct link to Direct Messages in the tab bar and allows you to send photos inside DMs for the first time.

Twitter has been testing a variety of these features over the past few weeks, but now they’re all packaged together. You may have seen the DM icon in the tab bar or heard of some users getting a swipeable timeline design as a part of Twitter’s ongoing experiments which see just a small percentage of users getting each permutation of the design. Those experiments are then used to determine which features hit the app itself. Continue Reading
