“Apple today announced financial results for the first fiscal quarter of 2015, which corresponds to the fourth calendar quarter of 2014. For the quarter, Apple posted revenue of $74.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $18 billion, or $3.06 per diluted share, compared to revenue of $57.6 billion and net quarterly profit of $13.1 billion, or $1.98 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter.”
Revert.io just added free backup for Tumblr accounts. It’s by invitation only while they bed it in, but join the wait list and they’ll get you in as soon as they can. The service keeps an independent backup of all post types (excludes audio and video streams but grabs everything else, including photos), and can restore individual posts as draft items in the event something goes awry. They also support a handful of other apps as both free and paid options, including MailChimp, Campaign Monitor, Evernote and more.
Well, free… I suppose, tumblr posts are mostly public anyway. Maybe it’s worth trying.
In case you don’t know what to do in your spare time, the special extended editions of the Lord of the Ring trilogy are available as a bundle in iTunes and add up to 11:36 hours of killed time… That’s almost half a day. Nice.
I suppose there will be special extended editions of the Hobbit trilogy as well. With any luck, it adds up to a full 24 hours. That would probably be the longest documentary about New Zealand ever produced.
“The five-time Tony Award-nominated Rock of Ages plays its final performance on Sunday, January 18, 2015 after 22 preview and 2,328 Broadway performances, solidifying its spot as the 27th longest running show in Broadway history.”
Recently, I went to a California Sushi course with my sister in Hamburg.
These are results of 1,5 hours of cutting vegetables, cookings rice, preparing the fish and another 1,5 hours of inside-out sushi roll training.
Among many others we had a maguro tuna and avocado roll, chicken and paprika tempura roll, salmon and avocado roll with green tobiko topping and some tuna, salmon and mango nigiri.
Personally, I am more into sashimi, but it was a fun evening with quite too much to eat… It will be some time before I try this at home. But if I do, I am prepared (although my sister showed far superior sushi rolling skills).
What do you think about my sushi? How do they look?
“It’s dead to us. Facebook is something we all got in middle school because it was cool but now is seen as an awkward family dinner party we can’t really leave. It’s weird and can even be annoying to have Facebook at times. That being said, if you don’t have Facebook, that’s even more weird and annoying. Weird because of the social pressure behind the question, “Everyone has Facebook, why don’t you?” and annoying because you’ll have to answer that to just about everyone in classes you meet who makes an attempt to friend you or find you on there.”
