Ah never mind. This tuned out to be fake. Oh but I wish it was true.
This is just TOO good. I read a story in thepaperblog on how Samsung paid Apple in nickles! 30 Trucks full! Seems the laywer forgot to include any clause about HOW to make the payments. Nice. Seems the way is not over between these two. Not sure how Apple will respond to this, they already went thermonuclear remember, so I guess its going to be tit-for-tat. However, look for some serious digs at Samsung in the next Apple adverts. Excerpts from the story..
This morning more than 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially, the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.
This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.
Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics, told the media that his company is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.
You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law.
