"Got a tech idea and want to make a fortune before you're out of your teens? Just do it, is the advice of the London schoolboy who's just sold his smartphone news app to Yahoo for a reported $30 million."*
Nick D'Aloisio is a 17-year old who made a fortune designing an app and getting rich investors to help him launch. His advice to others: just do it. Is he inspirational, or unbearable? Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and the TYT Supreme Court rule on the case.

Not guilty. He had to apply himself to learn enough about computer coding and be original enough to come up with a useful and viable program or application to have something to sell to begin with. Wall the speed that he went from the idea to a company may be entirely do to his advantages at the start. In plain English his birth race and economic position. The fact is he is right, even a disadvantaged person who had the skills and the idea could replicate what he accomplished. It might take a couple years longer, but that does not make him wrong only a little naive.
Yeah he got a lot of breaks because he played it safe by working hard, and now he's a millionaire. It makes a ton of sense. Some people are just salty they were lazy enough to not do the same like the other 99 percent of the country didn't. 😂😂😂😂
Everybody does have the same chances. Just go to the library, free wifi & computer & books. Learn to code, save up a couple hundred bucks and get a laptop. You don't need to be rich to learn how to program. How do you think kids in russia & india are teaching themselves how to program in internet cafes with 15 year old pcs. boo hoo kid in bronx NY doesn't have an opportunity. my ass
Bad form on your part, Cenk. This kid quite possibly might use some of his well-earned fortune now to inspire and invest in other kids to take an idea and run with it. There are millions of stories in this country of people who have taken a concept, developed it, or simply learned how to leverage money, so as to do well for themselves. Many if not most of them come from very common clay, make the necessary sacrifices of time, do with less sleep and self-indulgence, and make their machine run. You should be saluting them, and society should be encouraging and backing them. If this kid started a foundation to generously finance young people in new business endeavors ideas and enterprises, would he not earn your praise? There are sidebars to this story telling of yet more young people who came from nothing, developed an idea and became very successful and financially independent. Will they receive your slings and arrows too? We need more of this, not less, now that the smokestack era is over and the big question for the country is "How are Americans going to make a living in the age we are now in?" Cenk, you have a gene for mockery that is very unattractive. You should work on suppressing it, as it is a very undesirable human trait.
Cenk is so salty , he is acting like such a jealous piece of trash ... he completely took his quote out of context and the quote was genuine advice it’s not like he said “just get money from your parents”
He comes from an affluent family.. Ashton kutcher and Lee ka Sheng..And others..Are you kidding me!!??..Don't even know how you would get that kind of investors..Of coarse yahoo would buy you out with those investors around...
The kid isn't the "smug little ____." This "anchorman" sure is though. He's mad at this kid for being smarter than him. I bet he's one of those dads that gets jealous at his kids for being better than him. Douche.
People should think like this................. Your small minded mentality and insulting a young successful go getter is the reason young humans don't think big. The thing is he is 17 years old and you're 50 and angry that your not him.
Lol people without money always find an excuse as to why someone else made some. Womp womp.
Grow some balls. The kid is right - just do it. The time will never be right.
Literally - just start.
All extremely wealthy people say the same thing. The money comes with a process.
There is money everywhere. If you don't believe you can make it - you never will.
what...he learnt coding at 12 and instead of going into a tech education he goes for Humanities WTF... I mean humanities is a course for us mere mortals who weren't as gifted to have learnt coding at 12.
There is a disconnect I think
seriously hate google and how some things i don't search end up on my suggested feed they fucked youtube i can't stand that bitch she talks like she don't breath through her nose and the other dude is just trying to impersonate mark cuban (shark tank)
You need like 2 grand to start up an app... maybe 3 grand at the most. These people make it sound impossible. It's not. He came up with a great idea and sold it that's all. He got investors after.. if the idea sucked it doesn't matter how much opportunity or money you have access to. (Well it does I guess but it won't last) Look at jayz.. yeah what he did was illegal but he started up with like $100. I could understand if it was to cost 100 grand or something but not at all.. 2 or 3 grand... (just make sure you copyright/trademark the idea before putting it out there, or getting it built.) TYT sucks anyway I don't know why I still get them in my recommends I'm not subbed but whatever lol.

Although they can be abit jealoud i understand why jake is bitter about it. Launching an app isnt as easy as it sounds you need developers, its 100$/per year to have it on the app store and a bunch of other things
I think their judgment and analysis is wrong. The kid didn't have help from wealthy, smart, people for nothing. He first had to develop the awareness of "market gap", then he had to work on his skills, then he had to concept an idea, ONLY THEN he said, ok this might work. After these processes, only after, he got help. They are judging his quote? How many confucious-level quotes did they thought-out themselves at 17 years of age?
