Samsung Asks For More Money … From Apple

13. November, 2012

A short time ago, a jury decided that Samsung owes Apple roughly[1] one billion dollars for patent infringement.

Now Samsung raised prices for the chips they make for Apple.

Hm …

Makes me wonder …

Is that a clever scheme to make Apple pay for its own license fees?

Samsung: “Can we pay even higher license fees?”

Apple: 😦

Samsung: “Just asking …”

Update: Apparently, the original report isn’t correct (good luck verifying this claim): Samsung never asked for more money but it’s still a funny idea.

[1]: With that kind of money, who cares for decimals?
