25th March 2013 23:41 It seems thtere are 2 kinds of people commenting here:

1) Those who focus on a bright teenager and say ‘well done’ (except a few who focus on family advantage)

and 2) those who focus on the app and say ‘is that it?’.

Those with a bit of technical or media knowledge tend to be baffled by Yahoo’s payout. Doesn’t mean they are bitter about the lad’s success just bemused .
