Nimble HR Picks Up A Quarter Million To Take On The Recruitment Space — Nimble HR, a company that provides subscription software to help firms recruit new talent, has raised a $250,000 round of capital that it would likely call pre-seed. The company told TechCrunch that it is likely going to raise a full seed round, or even a Series A traunch, this summer.

Microsoft Wants You To Store And Manage Your Photos On OneDrive — When Dropbox introduced Carousel, it made a bid to be the home for all your photos. Microsoft wants to make a similar pitch. Today, the company outlined new ways to import, manage and share your photos on OneDrive, its cloud storage platform.

Microsoft Closes Down 9.25% After Its Earnings Report Fails To Impress The Street — Today, Microsoft shed tens of billions of dollars in value, after its earnings failed to impress the investing classes. Microsoft closed down 9.25 percent in regular trading. The company's shares slipped after-hours yesterday by several points in the immediate aftermath of the report, which indicated that Microsoft had earned $0.71 per share on revenue of $26.5 billion.

Yahoo Reports Mixed Q4 With Mobile Revenue Of $254M, Total Top Line Of $1.18B — Today Yahoo reported its fourth quarter financial performance, including revenue excluding the cost of acquiring traffic of $1.179 billion, and non-GAAP earnings per share of $0.30. The market had expected the company to report $1.19 billion in revenue, and non-GAAP earnings of $0.29 per share.

Here’s What You Need To Know From Microsoft’s $26B Quarter — Microsoft reported its fiscal second-quarter financial performance today, laid out its forecasts for its future performance and took questions from a number of analyst. It was a flurry of data, so let's take a moment and dig through the big points that matter.

Surface And Lumia Clock Record Numbers For Microsoft During Holiday Season — In its most recent quarter, Microsoft sold 10.5 million Lumia handsets, and the Surface line generated $1.1 billion in revenue. Both figures are all-time highs. Microsoft did break out total phone revenue - $2.3 billion, down from $2.6 billion in the sequentially preceding quarter - but that figure includes the sale of tens of millions of dumbphones, so it's slightly polluted.

Microsoft Slips 2% After Reporting $26.5B In FQ2 Revenue, $1.1B In Surface Revenue — Today after the bell, Microsoft reported the financial performance of the second quarter of its fiscal 2015, including revenue of $26.47 billion and earnings per share of $0.71. The financial markets had expected the company to earn $0.71 per share on revenue of $26.33 billion.

What To Look For In Microsoft’s Earnings Today — Microsoft is scheduled to report its earnings from the fourth calendar quarter today after the bell. The company is expected to earn $0.71 per share on revenue of $26.33 billion. Keep in mind that the period reported is the second quarter of Microsoft's fiscal 2015.

Here’s How To Turn On Windows 10’s New, Hidden Calendar And Clock — I presume by now that if you are a Windows kid, you are using the newest build of the Windows 10 operating system, the recently released 9926 edition. If you are, go ahead and select the clock in the lower right corner of your screen. It looks slightly mundane, does it not?
