(KMOV.com) -- A 17-year-old boy sold his app, Summly, to Yahoo for a cool $30 million.

Nick D’Aloisio built the mobile news app when he was 15-years-old. The iPhone app sorts news by topics and breaks it down into smaller bits.

News 4’s Steve Harris spent the morning discussing how D’Aloisio will never have to worry about student loans or a first job.

Check out Steve’s take on this boy whiz.
