What do the Shark Tank Investors say about popSLATE

  • Mark Cuban thinks the lock screen is the competition because the notifications are getting stronger. He needs to get something new and exciting. He has this with being able to roll the pictures or game information. Mark thinks it is a land grab. Mark believes as IOS improves, his device becomes less critical, he is out.
  • Ashton Kutcher feels if people put on their second screen their concern is battery life. Ashton likes this platform, he is afraid he has a dependency on Apple, and the price point is too high, he is out.
  • Kevin O'Leary doesn't think the risk-reward is there for him; he is out.
  • Lori Greiner has sold millions of dollars of cell phone cases, and you are never catching up, and the tooling is costly. She is out.

Robert Herjavec sees the wearable technology as his competition so, he is out.
