This morning, Facebook (FB) announced that it crossed the 1 billion monthly active user mark in September, putting it just behind oxygen and water in terms of importance to human life here on Earth.

But now, the question on everyone's mind: What does this mean for earnings?

Let's break it down.

The performance was well ahead of the average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters for a loss of 46 cents a share in quarter on revenue of $2.50 billion.

I would love to believe Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) can become great again. It's a great brand that stands for engineering excellence, white shirts and pocket protectors.
