» Samsung discovers cause and effect. Again.

The Verge reports that Samsung  is shocked — SHOCKED! — to find there is astroturfing going on around here! Who knew that hiring a sleazy ad agency would wind up causing sleazy tactics to be used on your name?

Well, maybe Samsung should have known.

Earlier this year, Samsung’s Taiwan branch admitted that students were paid to spread negative comments about the company’s local rival HTC.

I’m sure they’ll be really surprised the next time it happens, too.
