» Poor little Samsung

Sam Byford reports for The Verge on the Korean lawmaker forced from office for releasing illegally recorded audio of Samsung executive corruption:

The conversations in question are part of what is known as the Samsung X-File, a trove of tapes illegally recorded by the government’s intelligence service during the 1990s. The files include conversations between Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee and his brother in law, and reveal bribes allegedly paid by the conglomerate to prosecutors, politicians, and presidential candidates.

Remember when Dan Lyons told us we should all stop being so mean to Samsung? That was pretty funny. Not intentionally funny like his Fake Steve stuff, but still funny.

I can understand why you might like Samsung’s devices and I can understand why you might hate some things that Apple does as a corporation. But trying to prop up Samsung as a company?
