As previously reported Apple has won it’s patent infringement case against Samsung to the tune of $1 Billion dollars. What was NOT clearly stated is the method of payment for that $1 Billion dollar ruling, and that caused the internet to go crazy after reports of Samsung’s “eclectic” choice of payment method.
Earlier today Zurmat.com reported that 30 trucks pulled up to Apple headquarters, with the guards clearly thinking it was a mistake. But in fact it wasn’t, inside the trucks were $1 Billion worth of Nickels.
Along with this report they also stated that 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.”
I’m sure this “Troll War” is far from over…. But contradictory reports were later released stating that this idea of paying with $1 Billion in nickels was FALSE. The Guardian UK released a report giving an accurate portrayal of the current state of events surrounding the Apple case, which states that “The judge’s decision, which could include a tripling of the fine, is due on 20 September (or possibly 6 December now; it’s unclear). Until then, Samsung only has to pay its lawyers.”
Who said tech wasn’t entertaining.
