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 appears to be an old hoax.

Claim:
Samsung paid off a $1.05 billion judgment awarded to Apple in a patent infringement lawsuit entirely in nickels.

False

Snopes

Of course it is a hoax - care to show a valid source for it? Where are the photo's of the trucks....

The story is also 12 months old....

1) Samsung's fine ($1.049bn) isn't yet payable; the judge hasn't ruled. All we have is the jury's verdict.

It's a hoax, besides, you would need more than 30 trucks to send $1b in 5c coins....


A quick Google search would have revealed it was a hoax.

Lesson learnt/note to self if a piece like this did not draw the attention of atleast one ATS member after 10 days according to the date posted on the article then it's probably a hoax..

What an excellent and classy way to pay a Billion $ fine.

Shame it isn't true.

It happens to all of us.... well at least it does with me. I do tend to forget that not every site is "professional" when it comes to news reporting. It's no harm, no foul.
