Numbers! Numbers! Numbers! We had a great, wholly different 90 Seconds on The Verge today, but at the eleventh hour — or if you want to be more literal, the fourth or fifth hour post meridiem) — every tech company decided to announce its quarterly earnings. Some were good, some were bad. Some were second fiscal quarter, some were fourth — everyone has their own special calendar. Thankfully we have renowned numerologist Joshua Topolsky to walk us through it all.
(PS, We're beta testing Ooyala's new video player — help us out!)
