    At the beginning of each episode they always say he sold a software company he developed in his basement for $3.2 billion dollars but they never say what the name of the software was.


    Was it something Microsoft bought out? Google?

    He sold the "learning company" to Mattel, its consider the worst acquisition in corporate history.

    I guess it depends on one's perspective; obviously for Kevin it wasn't the worst acquisition in history, since it is his claim to riches and fame.

    Is Yahoo even doing anything with broadcast.com that they paid Mark Cuban billions in stock for?
