Samsung’s Hialrious Sense of Humor: Pays Apple $1 Billion in 5 Cents Coins
UPDATE: Okay, while I wish this story was true, it unfortunately, is not. This rumor started spreading yesterday and has since been debunked as a troll. The post, as far as I can tell, was originally posted HERE, a Mexican site that is similar to The Onion. In fact, I don’t believe we have enough nickels in circulation to even make this possible. At the very least, this was a very funny story that I wish were true. It’d be nice to have someone give Apple a little ass kickin’
Original story below:
Apple was surprised when they had over 30 trucks pull up to their headquarters in Cupertino, CA this morning. The security team had initially thought that the trucks were there by mistake, but shortly after their arrival, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO that explained they would pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company, in this way.
The document which was signed never expressed which method of payment Samsung CEO must use to deliver the funds, so he decided to give Apple a taste of their own medicine. Apple will now have to waste time, money and resources counting the money and ensuring it is has all been accounted for. Along with that, they must find a bank that is willing to take such an interesting deposit.
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.
