Link roundup

1. Gerard Way talks about the Umbrella Academy:

Describing how he thought of the character [the White Violin], Way said: “I was in a café in New York, and they had a white violin decoration on the wall, and for some reason I had never seen a white violin in my life. I also thought it would be a cool character for a comic book!”

2. Yahoo gained more share of the search market than Bing during the last month.

3. "Candy maker Mars Inc., computer company IBM Corp. and the U.S. Department of Agriculture have mapped the cacao genome in an effort to improve cocoa crop quality and sustain the world's supply of the key ingredient for chocolate." The results are going to be publicly available at Via.
