    I love Samsung! They made my phone, fridge, washer/dryer, and the storage for my PC. South Korea could take over the world, and I’d be ok with that.

  3. That “I’m free” quote at the end really hits different after his passing. Rest in peace, Techno. You will be missed dearly.

  4. it took me a really long time to realise that so called presidential pardon is just “get out of jail card” for wealthy elites to commit crimes and use money to buy their way out.

  5. Samsung has a long-term problem looming though.

    They are simply trying to do way too many things at once. Their products are good, but almost every one of their products has a higher quality (and usually a cheaper) alternative. Their phones are in my opinion the only sector where I feel like Samsung still dominates when it comes to quality.

    Although I do not think Samsung will go away anytime soon (if ever). They are just so big, so influencial, I don’t see any way for them to fail, unless they truly make some monumentally stupid decisions, which would be studied in history classes.

    Amazon’s is projected to make more money than Walmart this year.

  8. Monopoly’s are pretty much illegal in australia, how is this even allowed, running your economy on one business seems pretty risky….

    • Hmm…. Samsung isn’t monopoly. They do business in many sectors but they have fierce competitors in every sector.
      We have antimonopoly rule too.

  9. The one thing America should bring home is chip production. It’s a matter of National Security.
    There is talk of bringing it back, but I’ve heard that before. I hope this time it is real. Almost everything has chips in it, especially our weapons. THAT WOULD MEAN MANY GOOD PAYING AMERICAN JOBS!!

  10. I do love Samsung, reasonably priced with very high quality. I always try to buy Samsung.
