MacDailyNews Take: If there’s one thing Samsung excels at, beside fooling the ignorati into buying fake iPhones, it’s denying wrongdoing. They just have so much practice.

It disgusts us on a daily basis that Apple still does business any business at all with Samsung.

Good luck trying to live and work in the Republic of Samsung, Park Jung-kyu.
