    Just because no medical claim could be made for the product doesn't mean that it won't work. Her dermatologist uses it - that's a pretty good testimonial.

    I think Cuban was more interested in her and not her product.

    I was sad that Lori didn't take her on as a mentor.

    why did they harp on the guy about a 10 yr old product that still had a lot of good practical use? they really were annoying regarding that point. and lets face it this is just their lunch budgets they are risking anyway. while the guy was a bad speaker, you can hire who you need as long as you have a great product and he did

    so mark invested in how many things? he seems to be doing a lot lately,

    is there a tally somewhere how many times someone invests?

    maybe the reason rob couldnt use the stop drop is because he doesnt drive himself :) or maybe he just devotes himself to driving and nothing else.

    Totally agree. They like to think they know what's best. So what if the business fell apart because of bad partners in the past. It's a good product!

    to me it's entirely impractical because the heat shrink material will only shrink so much, and the bags will only fit certain sized packages. You could even see on the box he did that there were lots of ripples. While it may accommodate most things, it won't be a panacea - and consumers won't like that.

    Yes, but for common gifts like books or wine, I think it's a nice solution along with regular gift wrap. If I could choose one over the other for any particular gift, I'd choose the shrink-wrap one if it fits. Ripples? Are you kidding, like regular gift wrap doesn't have folds, wrinkles, tape, etc? BFD, it's GIFT WRAP, not Martha Stewart.

    you seriously underestimate peoples expectations for gift wrap. there are TONS of people who spend a lot of time and money wrapping gifts.

    And just as many people who don't care and want an easy solution.

    you would be surprised at how much the plastic shrinks if it's like the shrink wrap we used to use in our store.

    The ones he did on the show were not done that well, I guess in the interests of time.

    And I am sure that with appropriate funds they could do a clinical trial that would demonstrate that it is effective enough to make some claims.

    Last season an inventor offered shrimp burgers it has since been on an update segment on the show.

    Has anyone found and/or tried them?

    BTW, I use the poor mans version of "drop stop", It's called junk mail and magazines. Our community has a central mail-drop. As I often do, I stop for the mail on my way to an errand and the mail, magazines etc. land in the space between my seat and the center console.

    I'm sure they could, too. I was responding to the post that claimed that Cuban "fell for being better", despite the lack of any medical claim.

    Right. I was just adding to your point. A lot of products probably could legally make claims if they had the money/desire to demonstrate such claims in a lab setting. I don't think the fact that she said she can't make that claim was damning of the product like it might be of magnetic bracelets and junk like that.
