Five years for bribing the president?
Makes you wonder.
Re: Five years for bribing the president?
Makes you wonder what?
I can't work out if you think that's too harsh or too lenient!
Did they just create...
.....a Korean Mr Bridger?
Not having a great time lately, are they? Phucked phones, trashed tellies and chairman in chokey.
Don't forgot about the exploding washing machines! Happened to a friend of mine last fall, and he had the Facebook pictures to prove it.
Given Apple follows Samsung and Samsung follows Apple.
We should expect a chairman at Apple to do 10 years to outdo Samsung then sue Samsung for infringing their patent on bribery and corruption.
Meanwhile the US couldn't even jail one guy
Despite all the obviously corrupt things that happened that helped cause the housing bubble and economic collapse in 2008, and here bribing the president or politicians to do your bidding is called "lobbying" or "campaign finance".
Re: Meanwhile the US couldn't even jail one guy
I was gonna say, in the US, the entire membership of the CFR should be in jail...
But simply owning the entire place is different from a bribe. They don't bribe, by Hillary's admission, they just tell them what to do and the political actors follow suit.
Nobody wants to be next in line for sacrificial disembowelment at the feet of the owl in the Bohemian Grove. And Kennedy still stands as a warning to any politician who mistakenly thinks he has any power to wield.
I wonder if he'll retain any brand loyalty towards Samsung when faced with having to secrete his (not permitted in jail) mobile phone in a bodily orifice. There are no good places for a mobile phone to burn violently but one of the worst I can think of for an exploding phone is up your arse.
You got my thumbsup...
for the title
I don't like Samsung's way of doing business - it is a very aggressive company that lets others build a market sector and then moves in because it can subsidise buying a small market with its power in other areas. I wrote an article on why this is bad for the computing industry as a whole.
