Epic Trolling from Samsung

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.

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.

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.

    Why is Samsung paying Apple a fine? Is Apple a regulator?

    Melt the coins down Apple – Yeah, there’s a $10,000 fine for defacing the currency, but when you can get more for the nickel that is in them (Pre 2011) it’s worth the fine as a business expense. Show Samsung Who’s Boss :-) hehehehehehehehehehehehe.
    (I do not own Apple anything)
    I sure love the Irony in this though. I hope the nickel price is still high :-)

  3. This is an old hoax. There is not even enough coins in the world to do this. Read http://www.snopes.com/politics/satire/samsung.asp
