“Russian Market shared a gif of a man lighting his cigar from a fire in his lap, with the comment: ‘Reading Twitter on your Samsung phone,'” Dean reports. “Another image joked there would be a ‘fire sale’ with the offer of ‘buy one get 2.5 million free.'”

  1. Seems to me SamSplode losing $17 billion goes way beyond any award Apple could have gotten from them for infringements. Who knew in the end Scamsham would be self-thermonuclearizing?

    I don’t know if you can find a better example of karma meting out richly deserved justice.

    1. The first time those students try to take an airline flight, they’ll realise that they will have to throw those phones away before boarding the flight (or cancel the travel plans, if they are hell-bent on keeping their phones).

  2. As for arrogance of the fandroid legion, this is well deserved. I’ll reluctantly use a word* the originated amongst the fandroid base…., seems all the Scamscum fan base is in the midst of a major butthurt* 😜

  3. In the original article, I _love_ the image of how to put the Samsung phone into airplane mode (a fireproof box), and the comment that it’s good this phone is water resistant, because that’s the only safe way to use it, underwater! Brilliant!

  4. “Samsung’s irreparable brand damage is proof that, yes, there is a God. Maybe Steve’s whispering in His ear up there.”

    I think Steve has engineered a coup and overthrown God. Steve is now in charge. He is going thermonuclear on Samsung the only way he could from beyond the grave.
