The TimesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ paid model is just two weeks old but, still, a number of stats came through this weekend – none of them from the horseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mouthÃ¢â‚¬Â¦

ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no attribution for these, but the fact theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re reported by former Times media correspondent Dan Sabbagh might be some cause for validityÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
