    It costs 8k for someone to give you the idea for making a phone app. Listen, it is what it is.

    Getting an app made doesn't have to be expensive, especially with all the Indian and Chinese freelancers on the web.

    It's been done by Costanza, Lord of the Idiots.

    In the Curb Your Enthusiasm episode "Seinfeld", it is revealed that in the aftermath of his release from prison, George had both gotten married and made millions in the ten years since being locked up in "The Finale".

    George Costanza's fortune resulted from selling an iPhone application called the "iToilet", which utilizes GPS technology to direct the user to "acceptable" public restrooms closest to them, wherever they are.

    In this episode, his wife had left him, and he had lost his money in the recession, having invested it all in Bernie Madoff's now-notorious Ponzi scheme. His wife, however, bailed out her half of the investment after the divorce, before the scheme collapsed. At the end of the episode, George and his wife reunite, though his wife insists he sign a prenuptial agreement, meaning he will have to keep their renewed marriage going to keep him from losing the remainder of the money he made on the iToilet, much to his annoyance.

    tim's hourly worth is around 300 dollars an hour. He spent 25 hours thinking of this great idea.

    So one of the head of Howard's "brain trust" does three things that show he is incompetent.

    1) Over Pays for an App
    2) Comes up with a not so unique Idea(it was more of a name than an Idea)
    3)Presents it to Cuban and shows indignation when told it is shit


    Not surprised. I only have to listen to Howard 101 content and know that this "genius" of a programming director is responsible for the shit I hear.

    $8k will get you a laptop, an annual developer license, funds for about 3 months of doritos and jolt cola, some funds for advertising your app and about $500 per app to pay a real developer to write the code for you.
