    Turned $2000 into "biggest gay bar in the world." Says he still hooks-up once a week or so: No smokers. No cats.

    Looks like he's spending the money on himself and not so much on improving the product. icon_lol.gif

    It is not entirely the app problem, I think the problems are the ppl who use it, I delete it after one creep stalk me through my facebook, and another one who send me dick pic, ew.

    “Grindr is a very, very visual experience,” Mr. Simkhai said. “I’m not really a big believer in words.”

    The story also said that he doesn't know anything about programming or IT. I don't recall that it actually said what his expertise actually is? Hooking up?

    The author was clearly biting back dumping on him the whole way. Hard to argue with success, obviously (I'm buying this big dump in the Hollywood Hills with my pocket change and you're not. icon_razz.gif )
