A short time ago, a jury decided that Samsung owes Apple roughly one billion dollars for patent infringement.
Now Samsung raised prices for the chips they make for Apple.
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?”
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.
: With that kind of money, who cares for decimals?

Holger Staudacher posted an article with some tools that you should know about when developing Java code: “A Software Craftsman’s Toolbox: Lightweight Java libraries that make life easier.”
Along the same lines, Jeeeyul came up with an idea to make
System.out.println( "Hello World." );
produce this output:
(MyHelloWorld.java:10) : Hello World.
Just takes 34 lines of code: “Make System.out.println() Rocks!“
