…AND the Horse You Rode In On, and Your Little Dog, Too!

June 14, 2013

I’ve been on the road nearly three solid weeks, and I missed the whole Snowden and NSA stuff.  I’ll get to that.

First, wow.

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.

This is actually the start of the payment, since even 30 trucks can’t hold that much.  I’m guessing nickels were the best way to start given cost, weight, and accessibility.

I’m trying to source this better, by the way.  Don’t go telling everyone until I can find a real news article on it.  Even if it’s a hoax story, it’s funny.

Updated nearly immediately: sounds like a hoax.  Still funny.

    Yes, it’s a hoax from last year. As you said, still funny.

    Here’s an interesting take on Snowden:
