Samsung’s Hialrious Sense of Humor: Pays Apple $1 Billion in 5 Cents Coins

samsung-pays-apple-1-billion-sending-30-truck-L-guLcKc

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.

[VIDEO] Caine’s Arcade: An Inspirational Story About a Boy and His Arcade

caines_arcade_smile1-670x370

Caine Monroy is a 9-year-old boy who wanted an arcade, and instead of waiting for it to come to him, he built it… from cardboard. His dad has a used auto parts store in East LA and has provided the space that Caine needs to run his arcade. For awhile he had few customers, but since Nirvan came into his life, everything has changed. This young man is smart, creative, eager, motivated, and very hard-working. It is so nice to see someone recognize this boy for what he’s accomplished and shared it with the world who can also appreciate all of his effort.

If you want to support Caine and donate to his scholarship fund, please do so HERE. The smart young man has already raised $28,229 and Nirvan is hoping he will reach $100,000.

[VIDEO] Kinect Grocery Cart: Shopping Made Easy

IP-shoppingcart

Whether you know this or not, I am a huge fan of technology. Some people may fear that technology makes us lazy, less socially available, as well as a variety of other issues. While I do agree that some technology has made it easier for us to be lazy and or avoid human interaction, I think it’s up to us to not just accept that and find ways to interact socially as well as not submit to laziness.

Another reason I like the technological advances that are being made is because it broadens our horizons and advances us as a race. If technology is the basis for most everything, then most everybody is going to have to have at least some understanding of how these devices and programs work. Someone who may not have cared before, may have to now and will have to use parts of the brain they didn’t care to use prior. Also, as the population continues to grow, making simple tasks more convenient is going to be helpful when in crowded places that would normally have lines. When you’re in a small town, lines are something that move quickly, but in a place like Los Angeles, New York, and Japan… lines are horrendous. For this reason, I think this way of shopping is genius:

(And just because things don’t work 100% of the time doesn’t mean they’ve failed, it means that they need improvements… as do most things)

Russian Grave Robber Dresses Up At LEAST 29 Female Corpses As Teddy Bears And Dolls

UPDATED (Tuesday November 8th 1:05PM):

Anatoly Moskvina is a Russian man who thoroughly enjoys his collection of teddy bears and dolls. Ordinarily people would think this was odd for an older gentleman, but for Maskvina, this is truly unbelievable.

After he dug up the bodies of at least 29 females from hundreds of different cemeteries, he proceeded to take them back home to his three-bedroom flat in Nizhny Novgorod. He carried the remains of women aged 15-26 in plastic bags where they would soon be transformed into his live-in doll collection.

At his apartment, the twisted 45-year-old apparently dressed the bodies and skeletons in stockings and dresses, and even made one look like a teddy bear. All had died years earlier.

His ghastly obsession was uncovered when Moskvina’s parents visited him in the town around 200 miles east of Moscow after returning from a holiday.

The man was always a bit eccentric as neighbors report they thought he was a ‘genius’. Obviously he was very intelligent and was known to be a journalist as well as a historian, which may have led to his fascination of older, dead bodies. Apparently he sometimes slept in a coffin or on the benches in graveyards. Surprisingly no one linked the cuckoo (who was oddly obsessed with the dead) to the grave robbery‘s that were occurring.

Speaking 13 languages would be a great quality if he were actually having to use this skill set, but unfortunately the knowledge is wasted on dead bodies that were wrongfully removed from their graves.

Moskvina was said to have visited more than 750 cemeteries in western Russia to indulge his fantasies, although it was not clear when he had begun exhuming graves. 

Police arrested Moskvina and later released him, but it was not immediately clear what charges he will face.

My twisted mind can’t help but wonder if he did anything else with these bodies other than dress them and admire his work? Seems pointless to take them, dress them, and leave them on display for no one to ever see, or so he hoped.

Steve Jobs Has Officially Died!!!

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc., has been reported as dead. On Apple’s Home Page, there is a dedication to the man that made Apple what it has become today, the richest company in America and the only true competitor in technology advancement.

From the Wall Street Journal -

“Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives,” Apple said in a statement. “The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.”

His family, in a separate statement, said Mr. Jobs “died peacefully today surrounded by his family…We know many of you will mourn with us, and we ask that you respect our privacy during our time of grief.”

During his more than three decade-long career, Mr. Jobs transformed Silicon Valley as he helped turn the once sleepy expanse of fruit orchards into the technology industry’s innovation center. In addition to laying the groundwork for the modern high-tech industry alongside other pioneers like Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates and Oracle Corp. founder Larry Ellison, Mr. Jobs proved the appeal of well-designed intuitive products over the sheer power of technology itself and shifted the way consumers interact with technology in an increasingly digital world.

Unlike those men, however, the most productive chapter in Mr. Jobs’ career occurred near the end of his life, when a nearly unbroken string of innovative and wildly successful products like the iPod, iPhone and iPad fundamentally changed the PC, electronics and digital media industries. The way he marketed and sold those products through savvy advertising campaigns and its retail stores, in the meanwhile, helped turn the company into a pop culture icon.
