Standard

So the geeks are worth – gross – about £120 a year per person. Take the midpoint of the range and that is 12,500 and totalled up that’s £1.5m. I’m told by Apple pundits that Apple takes about 30% for itself, but you are not going to get good info on the exact commercial arrangement between News and Apple. Assume only that it would be reasonable to speculate that the publisher’s turnover is not quite as high as the gross of what the customer pays (no doubt there are bank fees as well).
