Mark Cuban the American (self made) billionaire and most widely known as the owner of the Dallas Mavericks (NBA champions of 2011), as well as one of the “Sharks” on Shark Tank (a show where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to billionaires/millionaires in hopes of an investment). Also very popular for his loud mouthed comments against rules and officiating in the NBA, NHL and the NFL (fun fact: he was fined 500,000 dollars for saying one of the officials of the NBA couldn’t manage a Dairy Queen). Anyways last night Mark Cuban did an AMA on Reddit, which was pretty interesting and enlightening- interestingly someone asked about Mp3 players and laptops to which Mark replied:

I have 2 phones. first is samsung the 2nd was an Iphone5. THe new Nokia with windows replaced my Iphone 5

i think as far as phones, both Samsung 3 w android and the windows phone kick the Iphone’s ass. Its not even close

Pretty cool to see that Lumias are getting some recognition, especially from someone like Mark who isn’t being paid to advertise the phone, and just posted that it kicks the iPhone’s ass on reddit is free advertising. Go Mark!

Here’s one of the Shark Tank pitches (one of my favorites- skip to 2:30 to see Mark in action):

    sdf kisses prostitutes, Calls them baby and thinks he’s got game. Yep, “Some Dumb F**k” is a true player…that’s what his mum tells him. He’s even got a book out, “How to Lay with Your Cousin: 2nds are A.O.K.”

    Well, rumor has it.

    dudes some freakin coordonation when posting articles. a duplicate one after the other? wtf? make a system, a centralized list accessible only by the mods where you can see the list of articles. use tags on them so you can n verify if something was already posted. a few days ago michael posted about the rita ora video with the lumia, a month after ali posted the same thing. and there are more examples

    This is some pretty sweet publicity, even If it is on what I would still call an underground site.

    MNB moved onto sycophancy. Cuban is a shrewd businessman, he always has a motive.

    It is obvious now to recognise Lumia.
