Oh, and publishers’ revenues from Apple News+ is nothing like what Apple touted. Lucia Moses writes,

I recall that John Scully — an executive from Pepsi — nearly ran Apple into the ground after Steve Jobs left the company in 1985. He came back in 1997 as part of the acquisition of NeXT, which became the foundation for modern MacOS, iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and iPadOS. The rest is history.
