Apple’s Huge Q4: $42.1 Billion In Revenue, $8.5 Billion In Profit — Today after the bell, Apple reported its fiscal fourth quarter financial performance, including revenue of $42.1 billion, and earnings per share of $1.42. Analysts had expected Apple to report profit of $1.31 per share, on revenue for the period of $39.85 billion.

Here’s What You Need To Know From Microsoft’s Cloud Event — Today in San Francisco, Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella and his lieutenant Scott Guthrie detailed the status of their company's cloud efforts, breaking out a few growth metrics, and announcing several new features that they hope will spur growth. Microsoft is hellbent to be a winner in the cloud space.

Microsoft Wants You To Doodle As You Scoot — If you own a Windows Phone, and you use Skype, and you are willing to update the Skype app on your Windows Phone, and you want to update the Skype app on your Windows Phone so that you can use the new Skype for Windows Phone feature, today is a pretty good day.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Dishes On The Cloud, Gender Inequality In Tech And Piracy-As-Freemium — After recently managing to stuff two feet into his mouth at the same time, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stopped by CNBC for a wide-ranging interview covering not only his recent comments on women in the workplace, but also his company's bets on the cloud, and how Microsoft has long had an implicitly freemium business model.

Uri Levine Claims Waze Had Several Other Suitors Before “Smooth” Sale To Google — This morning at the first day of Disrupt Europe in London, TechCrunch's Josh Constine sat down with FeeX's Uri Levine to dig into how the new company is doing. Levine is best known for his work with Waze, a mapping service that Google bought in a 10-figure deal.

Iranian Users Petition Microsoft For Greater Windows Support — Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system preview has attracted more than 1 million testers to date, and tens upon tens of thousands of votes on its user forums. Curiosuly, one dominating theme has emerged over the past few days: Requests for better support in Iran.

Pizza, Beer, Glory, And The All-Night London Hackathon — Here in London, the Disrupt Europe hackathon is racing towards its conclusion, with its participants all prepping their presentations for judging later today. Last night, however, around midnight, fueled by a recent infusion of pizza and beer, TechCrunch went around to ask a few questions and cause a little mayhem.

Google And Microsoft Battle For Market Cap Supremacy — Google and Microsoft are currently locked in a dogfight to be the second-most valuable technology company in the world. Following Google's less-than-awesome earnings report, combined with a pre-market rise from Microsoft, the two tech giants are neck-and-neck for market cap supremacy. Apple and Exxon Mobil will still be worth more than the dueling technology giants.

Blog So Hard MotherF’ers Wanna Distribute Premium Digital Content, Connect With Advertisers, And Engage With An Audience At Scale — So I'm currently hanging out in the AOL offices here in London, prepping for Disrupt. To their credit, the AOL and Huffington Post crew have been great. I have a nice desk, a coffee machine nearby, and even a can of cold Coke to drink.

Microsoft’s CEO Apologizes Again For Comments On Women, Promises New Diversity Efforts — Microsoft is working to repair its public image and change course by addressing the damage that CEO Satya Nadella caused last week by saying that women should, perhaps, not ask for raises. His comments immediately became an international high water mark for tone-deafness - and being flat wrong - and he continues to apologize and promise change.
