Teenager Sells App To Yahoo.- JunTian

Summary: 17-years-old Nick D'Aloisio, from Wimbledon, south London, created the app, Summly – which provides bite-sized summaries of content from news and other sites, and now joins an elite group of teenagers who have become internet millionaires. After selling his company to Yahoo at £18m, 90% in cash and 10% in Yahoo shares, he was invited to move over to the headquarters of Yahoo. However, he declined it as he wanted to continue studying and taking his A levels. He hopes that eventually he can make it to Oxford University.

Opinion: I feel that it is shocking how these teens are so creative and smart. They are able to produce apps that are so well liked. They are all truly geniuses with great potentials. However, as a teenager, Nick is very clear about his duties, and chose to continue studying instead of joining the company straight away.
