» Hard to root for

Interesting piece by the Verge’s Sam Byford about the tainted history of Samsung’s rise to power. Other than knowing the chaebols have a history of nepotism and payoffs, I was unaware of the details of Samsung’s nepotism and payoffs.

The most laughable commentary about Apple’s fight with Samsung is casting this giant conglomerate that probably mines the metals in its phones and TVs as some scrappy freedom fighter that we mean ol’ Apple fans should leave alone. I can certainly see how you might root against Apple. But I can’t see how  you would root for Samsung.
