    This seems partially true, but partially paranoid imo. Partially true because we're already seeing personalized adverts based not just on social media but internet usage in general. But partially paranoid because Mark Cuban has been caught saying ridiculous, idiotic, borderline r****ded things on social media and he's been called out on it. What do you guys think?

    I've seen this video posted a few times.

    Keep in mind that while there is some validity to what he's saying, the video Is basically an ad with Cuban trying to scare you into buying his new product.

    If Mark Cuban wasn't a recognizable person, people would look at this video as one of those late night paid programming ads that are produced to look like interview shows but they're really trying to sell you something.

    this really lowers my already low opinion of Mark Cuban.

    I generally think privacy issues are way overblown. Anybody that connects to the internet, has a bank account, owns a mobile phone, house, etc etc etc. I mean really.

    Oh yeah, and who in their right mind sends sensitive things out: ever head of a pdf?

    Before you know it the government will make a brightly covered book with everyone's address and phone number and distribute it across the nation for free to nearly every citizen.
