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

PaperBlog - 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. (Apple, Culture, Industry, Samsung)

Funny though. It is interesting to note this action would have been illegal (well I am not sure about america but in the UK it is) http://www.dailymail.co.uk/...

Actually there is a supreme court case out of Connecticut where a man paid 10k or something like that in pennies. It went to the supreme court and the ruling said it was legal tender and the city had to accept it that way. So in the us it is legal. I paid a speeding ticket with quarters once, it was hilarious and I got the last laugh.

Even if it was real. Apple will have the last laugh because at the end of the day, they have Samsung's 1billion$. and @frelyler the police department had the last laugh in your case. You had to fork over your money so they don't care how they get it.

Coins are a legally acceptable tender. Refusing to take them as a form of payment is actually against the law.

It's a goof, they still have the appeals process to go through.
Adolph Fitler  +   700d ago
I'd like to know exactly what it is that Samsung copied from Apple, as you only have to change a product by something like 10 or 15% to call it your own, & I'm sure Samsung know this & have applied all the legally neccessary changes. To me, it seems like U.S. companies getting there nose out of joint that they are getting more competition than they bargained for, so they take this crap to court & use all there legal workarounds to legally rob money back from there Asian rivals.....Immersion done the same thing to Sony with the DS rumble tech at the end of PS2's life, when Sony had sold masses of consoles for 2 gens straight & the U.S. attack on the Japanese giant began.

slimpickens  +   699d ago
What does Apple have to do with America as a whole? Good way to generalize!
abzdine  +   700d ago
lots of Apple suckers here. You guys need to learn the humor cause i'm sure you have nothing to lose with this you are just sad and angry because Apple the "cool" company that screws everyone got pranked.

I am not fan of any of these but i have to admit i had a good laugh with this.
kingPoS  +   700d ago
Samsung could prank like a boss if they use dimes. Just imagine the apple CEO diving into a vault full of dimes (Scrooge Mc Duck style) lol

seanpitt23  +   700d ago
Apples a joke this is greed on another level I will never buy a apple product because of this
abzdine  +   700d ago
agreed.
first and last product i bought was ipod nano chrome behind 1GB back in 2005 i think. Sound was shit and way too expensive than a Sony Walkman mp3 that sounds much much better.

iphone is another story. most phones are cheaper and capable of much more. let blind fanboys cherish their beloved brand that has one obsession and it's to screw them very deep.

I hjave Xperia P. Great phone great design 3D pictures camera bravia screen Walkman feature amazing screen.

You talk all that trash now. "I'll never buy another Apple product as long as I live". I guarantee you have an iphone or ipad and just wanna try to sound hard. You sound like all the other CoD "haters" when you know damn well you'll be standing in line at midnight release.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   700d ago
there's a difference between MW and apples products.... they might both be gimmicks but the pads are over priced gimmicks
abzdine  +   700d ago
i've other things to do in my life than go wait a whole night for something completly useless.

I can assure you i dont have any apple product and trust me i'm very happy without and i'm laughing at those slaves (like you maybe) who probably have an apple logo tatooded on the forehead.

and i'll add to your knowledge (as limited as it could be) that i never played a COD in my life and i'm not planning to do it anytime soon :)

if you dont trust me and you have a PS3 go check my trophies :)

I'm not the type of person who just follows the crowd, i actually enjoy walking against it tbh.

... and i never said i will never buy Apple products, it could happen one day but they have to be cheap and they MUST propose better than other already do.

Crazay  +   700d ago
Uhhhmmm...No.

No iPhones at our house, no Apple TV, no IPad...No Apple product. Not now not ever. That's a promise.
Shadow Flare  +   699d ago
The 3 people above have never owned an apple product in their life yet are adamant apple products are inferior.

You're opinions are invalid if you've never owned one. Yet more android fanboys hating on things that theyve never even owned

...because hey, it's cool to hate on apple
Never buy another Apple product? Because of a lawsuit? Really?
Don't stop buying Apple products just because they sued Samsung. Stop buying Apple products because half their price is the logo on the back.
Shadow Flare  +   699d ago
You will never buy an apple product again because samsung were found guilty of copying apple's products.

makes perfect sense

Samsung commited a crime. I hate apple!
