Shaquille O’Neal is a self-proclaimed geek. Despite an illustrious career as one of the most recognized NBA stars of all time, Shaq remains on a quest to find the next great thing in the world of technology. His Twitter account was the first to be verified by the platform and was a pre-IPO investor in Google.

Shaq recently attended SXSW to be a part of a panel on wearable technology. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Shaq can be seen wearing the Fitbit device, which monitors your steps and helps track your exercise routine.

While he demonstrated his knowledge of new technologies, companies, and industry leaders, Shaq also threw around some numbers regarding his app habit.

Honestly, I probably spend $1,000 on apps a week,” he said in the interview. “Real money. Last week, I bought like 20 deer-hunter games.”
