CUBAN GETS “PIMP SLAPPED”

An alert FBvian writes:

Robert Cringley is a computer industry curmudgeon who often appears on PBS. He also writes a weekly column. This week, he was meditating on Google’s future, when he unexpectedly issued a verbal pimp slap to Yahoo and Mark Cuban:

“I don’t expect any multi-billion-dollar acquisitions by Google, whether for cash or stock. Larry and Sergey know too well the story of Yahoo’s boneheaded purchase of Broadcast.com, making Mark Cuban an instant billionaire and an affliction on both reality TV and the NBA.”

I agree with the reality TV comment. But the NBA? Those of us in Dallas at least remember the Mavs before Cuban owned the team. “Savior” is a better word than “affliction.” (Somewhere at Ice Rocket a bell just went off, triggering the computer chip implant in Cuban’s head to let him know that something kind was said about him in the blogosphere.)
