Citigroup Turns To Profit In Q4, Beats View; But Revenues Miss

Citigroup Inc. on Monday reported a turnaround to profit in the fourth quarter as the year-ago quarter’s results included the impact of a hefty charge related to the U.S. tax reform. The latest quarter’s results also benefited from a reduction in expenses, lower cost of credit and a lower effective tax rate that helped offset a decline in revenues.

The past month has been a whirlwind of Disney-related nostalgia as the brand’s iconic mouse is turning 90 this year. From super cool Vans’ collaborations through to an omega nostalgic 90s Flashback line, music lovers are the next to get their much-needed dose of nostalgia with a pair of sick headphones. Audiophiles, steel yourselves — Beats by Dre have just launched the ultimate pair of headphones for Disney lovers and we’re totally in love.

The new headphones have been created especially for Mickey Mouse’s 90th anniversary and unsurprisingly, he’s plastered all over the wireless headphones. Designed in a cool grey and with big comfy cushioned ear muffs, you’ll find Mickey striking a pose across the band looking ready to bust a move as you bust out some tunes.

The headphones also come with a cute anniversary pin, sticker and a sleek felt case (because something this adorable needs to be protected). You also don’t have to worry about any fiddly cables getting in the way as it’s totally wireless, meaning you can leave your phone on the table and go about your business in the house without lugging your tech around. And you know what that means: impromptu vacuuming dance party.

The headphones aren’t available just yet, but you’ll be able to snag a pair of your very own on November 11. You’re going to have to pay top dollar though, as they’re priced at £279.95 and will be available through the Apple store and online on Disney.com. Potential Christmas present? (‘Tis the season for expensive gifts, after all.)
