Apple vs Samsung - Who's Laughing Now?

Well, when I first read the news on Apple winning the law suit, I was wondering to myself:  What are other people's reaction to this?

1.  Rejoicing for Apple?

2.  Samsung users worried about the Samsung company?

3.  How could this happened?

4.  Tim Cook must have came today.

I believe this would be the top 4 thoughts that ran through the peoples' mind.

What I am really worried was, wow the Board of Directors of Samsung must be having a really hard time.  Insomnia, stressed and this does not only goes on to affect themselves, the company but also their families as this could strain their family relationship.  You know how company crisis affects your family :<  And also your employees!  I believe their employees would be scared to even hear the footsteps of their bosses in the office:  Imagine a walking volcano that could erupt anytime.  I don't want to work in an office like that.

However

After reading today's article, I take back my thought.  Apparently, Samsung would be having the last laugh after all.  Damn this Asians >D

Samsung Pays Apple $1 Billion Sending 30 Trucks Full of 5 Cents Coins

Posted on the 28 August 2012 by Jesusmsanchezl
This morning more than 30 trucks filled up with coins of 5 cents arrived at Apple’s headquarters in California. Initially,  the security company that protects the facility said it was diverted to 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 him to the creators of the iPhone its billion dollars as they deem best.
This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives in the sense of the method that they need to apply for counting all that money, check if it is complete and try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept to receive 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, deliver hope to finish this week.
Let’s see how Apple will respond to this


I wonder where did Samsung find all the 5 cents.  Genious, this people lol

Edited:  I just saw this off a friends' Facebook so I guess the rumour aren't true after all?  By the way, this guy should get an award for being a Math genious >D
