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

Let us say, this is not a hoax (I hope it is not). How did Samsung manage to collect this huge quantity of small change without the news leaking out in the first place

If the Court found Samsung guilty, it is correct they pay the fine. The Samsung's reaction is uneccaptble and I think that the Court should reject it and charge a second fine for the reaction.I would be courius to see the behavior of the CEO of Samsung at the opposite side.

Perhaps Samsung, instead of focusing on childish antics, maybe they could apply half the creativeness portrayed with this 'truck idea', and create a UNIQUE innovative idea - instead of copying all of Apples products.

Samsung play dirty pool, they blatantly copy Apple then act like it is justified and morally correct, even after a jury has found them guilty! This is typical Asian opportunistic business behaviour. This is not a company I want to do business with...
