Samsung pays Apple $ 1 billion fine in form of 30 trucks full of 5 cent coins

Seems like Samsung plays fun in Apple vs Samsung case.
This morning Apple’s HQ in CA received 30 trucks full of coins of 5 cent. They were curious about the situation and then, Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, received a call Samsung explaining that they will pay their fine in this way. Samsung paid a total of 20 billion coins, making it worth of $ 1 billion.
Lee Kun-hee, Chairman of Samsung Electronics told the media that “his company is not going to be restrained by a group of “geeks with style”.
Samsung paid the fine this way, because they were not specified to pay the fine in any other particular way. This is going to be real ball-ache for Apple, who will now have to spend thousands to get them counted to ensure the fine is paid in full.
