From Wikipedia.com (also available on a myriad of other sources. )
"On April 1, 1999, less than 9 months after the IPO, Yahoo! announced the acquisition of broadcast.com for $5.7 billion in stock. At the time, broadcast.com had 570,000 users, and the purchase price was $10,000 per user. Cuban sold most of his Yahoo stock that same year, netting over $1 billion. Founder Chris Jaeb, whose stake was diluted to less than 1% of the company, received approximately $50 million from the sale.
The service became a part of Yahoo! Broadcast Services.
Yahoo shut down much of its broadcast services in 2002 and broadcast.com has since been discontinued. Yahoo's high-profile purchase of broadcast.com has since been called one of the worst internet acquisitions.
I treasure the hypocrisy of the those suffering from TDS.
