Apple has posted their quarterly results, and the numbers are as impressive as ever. $39.2 billion in revenue, with 11.8 million iPads sold, 35.1 million iPhones, 4 million Macs for a profit of $11.6 million billion. An interesting note about the sales of iPads, as Tim Cook was quoted as saying that they've sold 67 million iPads cumulatively in the two years, a number that took the Mac 24 years to reach. Apple are certainly hitting all the right notes financially.
AppleInsider is reporting on a new rumour surrounding iPhoto. They're saying that iPhoto '12 might be coming this summer with features from the iOS version.

Rumours say the new iPhoto will bring sharing via iCloud, instead.
Amazon has released a new tool to enable users to send documents to their Kindle from their Mac. The Send to Kindle app has been available for PCs for a while, but now that the Mac version has been released, Kindle-owning Mac users can now drag-and-drop their documents to read on their Kindles.
