Mamma.com and Mark Cuban Insider Trading

November 17, 2008

With today’s news about Mark Cuban being charged by the SEC with Insider Trading, I thought I would see just how relevant Mamma.com ( not Momma.com ) search results were for Mark Cuban search queries:

Mamma.com Mark Cuban

Mamma.com Mark Cuban

Mamma.com doesn’t integrate news or blogs into their search results like Google does and thus a search for Mark Cuban does not produce any algorithmic links to sites with news about the SEC or their Insider Trading charges.

However, an enterprising news aggregator and advertiser – “Newser.com” – is bidding on searches for Mark Cuban in both Momma.com and Google.com

I am sure Mamma.com, Momma.com and even Newser.com are experiencing spikes in their visitor traffic today as a result of Mark Cuban’s having been charged by the SEC for Insider Trading.

Apple Rings Seven Digits to Reach iPhone

July 1, 2007

Jay Westerdahl at DomainTools.com confirms Apple has acquired iPhone.com from Michael Kovatch.

Although Michael didn’t confirm his domain name sales price, Jay thinks the iPhone.com sold for in excess of one million dollars.

Kovatch registered the domain way back in 1995 and had plans to build a company around it. He has instead decided to build a larger bank balance.

Like Mark Cuban said, you only need to get it right once in business.

Michael Kovatch got it right with iPhone.com.
