Samsung pays Apple $1 billion sending 30 trucks full of 5 cents coins

Created on 29 August 2012 by Jesusmsanchezl

Samsung vs AppleThis 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.

the funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best.

Lee Kun-Hee

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.

A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week.

Let’s see how Apple will respond to this.

You didn’t think this could be real right? but hey! you loved it :D

Get even is get even, no need to be cool or has style. Apple does not need to make that much damn money. They need to bring their manufacturing operation home to usa instead of exploiting cheap foreign labor. Quality cheap foreign labor. That's why you apple geeks love the products sooooo much.

Apple folks - pay attention to detail - read last sentence: "A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week." Quote Case of gullible vs. oversight?/

I did the math, and this would take over 42-hundred dump trucks. That would be a great sight to see...but I doubt the US has that many nickles.

Okkk.. Looks like Samsung was prepared for this! I don't think they could have arranged 20 billion coins this easily, in such a short span!!

If the USA didnt protect south Koreans (and provide local military support) they would not even have the ability to excercise their free market freedoms or even develop products in the first place. This is another example of the difficulty the USA has in being, maintaining and protecting their innovative edge.....which I might add is the only edge we have in a global economy that is favoring low wage countries....i am happy to see Apple win and it is sour grapes by a company and country that should be respectfull for what the USA provided and continues to provide them.

Don't forget to sort out the Canadian Nickels before the bank deposit.
