  • Four-Time NBA Champ Shaquille O'Neal Says He Spends $1,000 on Apps Weekly


    Retired NBA player, Shaquille ONeal has been at the SXSW event in Austin, Texas talking tech and its been reported that he is somewhat of an application addict. Reported by The Wall Street Journal in a video, Shaq admitted that he spends roughly $1000 a week on games and apps for his iPhone. I probably spend $1,000 on apps a week, ONeal told The Wall Street Journal.

    Shaq is a big tech fan, particularly for Apple and is waiting for the release of the iWatch. He stated that he even called former Apple CEO, Steve Jobs personally asking for products like the iPhone and iPod before it was open to the public. Shaq said the following regarding the matter:

    Ive always been a tech geek. Im not ashamed to say Im a geek at heart...last week I bought like 20 deer hunter games. I like hunting the deer on my phone.

      What apps could possibly total up to $1000 a week? The AppStore is good, but not that good.

      he's like those kids who rack up $3000/week in in-app purchases.

      only it's his money, and it's chump change.

      sounds like he has more money than brains i can not believe that you could use enough apps to total $1000 let alone have enough storage for everything from week to week.

      Then again, he probably has an iPhone 512GB depending what day it is.

      This is stupid. Most people don't even make what he spends on apps.

      This is absurd. Not judging the guy, but come on. He should consider donating that money to the less fortunate. He's not a bad guy, and I know he does charities and gives back to the community. But this is a prime example of futile spending.

      Who really cares? He has enough to spend so why not? I'm sure he spends more on most things than all of us. He's a self made guy who doesn't act like a punk so let him enjoy the spoils.

      I think of all the GOOD that could be done with 1,000 a week.

      here in the UK average wage is under 1000 a month after tax, 800+

      I would be classed as rich here if I got a grand a week.
