Alphabet beat expectations with revenue of $17.3 billion and $8.67 earnings per share. Investors were looking for $16.9 billion. The after hours spike in stock price is currently over 39.50 (5.25%). That places Alphabet’s total market cap at over $550 billion, while Apple languishes at a mere $538 billion. These numbers jump around a lot, so it’s possible Apple will be back on top in the morning. This has happened briefly once before back in 2009, but Apple has been solidly ahead ever since.

But the party’s over, so turn out the lights and give your requests to the fat lady.

Like other mobile email apps, Yahoo Mail lets you interact with email by swiping. In this release, you can customize what those swipes do.

Millions of people already consider Pandora the best way to discover new music.
