It took us a while to get here — a lot of nights in a brightly-lit late-night coffee shop in DC tweaking at code — but we got here. It’s pretty crazy. Thanks to everyone that’s followed on Tumblr in the past two years. You guys are cool. Now, let’s never discuss follower counts ever again. — Ernie @ SFB

Another milestone!

newsflick:

Just passed the 20,000 followers mark today. Wohoo!

Thank you all for making tumbling worth while.

I know for many of the greats of tumblr this figure is a fraction of their followers but I’m grateful. I do believe I haven’t returned the favour by not being as committed to tumblr as I should be. 

And thus it would be grate to get your feedback on what you would like to see more of from newsflick?

As one of Newsflick's earliest fans, we’re very happy to hear about this milestone! Keep it up, Sayid! You’re better than you think! :)

20 years ago Monday, Magic Johnson told the world he had HIV. At the time, the disease had an expiration date — one that millions of people have died fighting. Johnson, however, has managed to beat the odds, thanks to medical breakthroughs. Not that it was an easy announcement at the time — even for a man of his celebrity and good-guy stature, it required some walking on eggshells. ”I knew I was going to suffer,” he says. “But if this could help someone else who was suffering, then I would do it.” But in the end, Johnson’s reputation won out, allowing him to use his celebrity to encourage funding for research into stopping the disease for everyone — not just him. The L.A. Times has a couple of great stories up about Magic. Read them both. They’re worth it.

More on “App Store” suit: Why Apple has nothing to worry about

  • 15 billion freaking downloads from the App Store; no mistaking it source

» Point against Apple: See, this is why lawsuits like Apple’s trademark suit against Amazon make no sense; no matter how much you try to sue a company to oblivion, the fact of the matter is that nobody’s going to fool your product with theirs. Unless you’re Samsung.

Happy birthday, Cheerios. Our breakfast would suffer without you
And the way they’re made is fascinating: Roughly 70 years ago, the country’s most popular brand of cereal (specifically its Honey Nut variation, introduced in 1979) started puffing out of guns at hundreds of miles an hour — so fast that it turns the tiny balls of dough into the tiny little inner tubes that float around in your soy milk every morning. Kix, a fellow healthy cereal, gets made in a similar way. The cereal, notable for its health claims, recently received scrutiny from the FDA, who felt General Mills marketed the oat lumps like a drug. That case is still pending. One case that isn’t pending is the case that Cheerios are awesome. Just sayin’. (photo via Flickr user riebart) source
