Samsung pays Apple $1 Billion in Nickels.

I think this needs as much attention as possible just because we all need a chuckle these days.

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.

Some may call this sour grapes but I really don’t blame Samsung. Other’s may call Samsung a poor loser but I think accepting a loss graciously is only appropriate for sports.

UPDATE!: This appears to have originally been satire that was taken seriously by the press (and me). It’s still funny so I’m leaving it here.
