    $40 a year on digital content? That doesn’t sound right. Most of my movies, TV Shows, and Music are based on iTunes which rake around $400 a year. Not including Games though which In-Apps trick people to spend $4,000 a year to boost their productions.

    Read: “On Average”

    I thought the average was low too but when you divide that against 500 million users it makes more sense. Still seems low even against such a huge number and I’d also like to know how much of that is profit against head count, square footage (for the server farm) and all those royalty checks they’re cutting.

    Even at $20 billion a year I’d imagine a large portion (even as high as 50%) doesn’t stay with Apple. Still, as the article mentions, that’s a lot of cheese just for one product/service. Taking iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac sales and Macbook sales into consideration it’s pretty obvious that Apple is doing just fine.
