Facebook Inc.’s FB -2.56% loose approach to policing how app creators and others deployed its user data persisted for years, including after a 2015 effort by the social network to restrict access, according to court documents and people familiar with Facebook.

Slayer’s farewell tour is taking place this May and June and will feature support from Anthrax, Testament, Lamb Of God, and Behemoth. The tour is hitting pretty large venues like Holmdel, NJ’s PNC Arts Center, which has a capacity of about 17,000 people, but is also mysteriously playing the Bomb Factory in Dallas, TX.

That top seller was the appropriately-hyped 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB “Speciale,” an early, one-off show car crafted by Pininfarina rather than Scaglietti. Various differences between production 275 GTBs and this “Speciale” version can be found, including the hood design and several interior features, and all were noticed by potential bidders, all the… Read More
