Billionaire Mark Cuban: ” windows phone kick the iPhone’s ass”

December 24, 2012 1 Comment

Billionaire Mark Cuban, Owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks (He also owns Magnolia Pictures and AXS TV) recently participated in a Q&A (AMA) on Reddit. Among the tons of questions he answered, he was asked about what laptop, mp3 player, etc. did he own. He replied by stating that he owns a MacBook air (which crashes) so is tying an Acer with Windows 8. He also stated twice that he uses a Nokia branded Windows Phone 8 device and that is kicks his iPhones ass.

this is going to be a weird set of questions but how often do I get to ask this to a billionaire?

  1. When you buy something on Amazon or something, do you ever look at the prices? Or do you just buy whatever looks good and have it ship overnight?
  2. Let’s say that you’re looking for a new mp3 player and earbuds and can’t decide which to buy, do you  just buy whatever one you think is best? Or do you just go “fuck this, I’m a billionaire, and I’ll just buy everything & throw away the rest”
  3. Speaking of which, what kind of laptop do you own? And mp3 player? Are they customized or are they whatever is on the market?

  1. i always look at the prices. And I belong to Prime to get better rates
  2. I buy the one i like. I dont throw shit away like that
  3. I have a MacBook Air, but am trying the new Acer with Windows 8. I really, really like Windows 8 on my phone. I have 2 phones. first is samsung the 2nd was an Iphone5. The new Nokia with windows replaced my Iphone 5

i actually do on my samsung.  I love the tmobile wifi calling option. I love the open Android and Samsung platforms. I use a replacement keyboard sw which increases my typing speed (i still miss the speed typing on my sidekick).

I love myIPad and my macbook air is amazing when it doesnt crash, so i like apple products, but i think as far as phones, both Samsung 3 w android and the windows phone kick the Iphone’s ass. Its not even close.


That was a very good plug for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Nokia, you can’t possible buy a better promo than that.
