EPIC (imaginary) HACK: Samsung Pays $1B Fine to Apple in 5 Cent Coins (Updated)
[Update: looks like this is a hoax that got posted on Next Ventured. Damn, I hate getting caught. Regardless, would've been a good one, no? Sorry for the mix up, but I'm going to leave this up as a funny "what if" scenario because I love anything that pits Android vs. Apple, let's face it. Thanks to @CMacQuar for the heads-up and the Snopes link that proves this is pure, yet lovely, fiction.]
Well, in what is probably one of my favourite hacks of all time, Samsung got its due delivering its payment to Apple in the form of 30 trucks hauling 5 cent coins. 5 cent coins. Love that so much. Apparently the judgment did not stipulate the form of payment, and therefore Samsung had a little fun.
[Aside: For those of you wondering how this is a "hack", you might recall that in my talk "Hacking is Mindset, Not a Skillset" I discussed that hacking was originally a term for pranks performed by MIT students. What we call hacking (breaking into computer systems), they call "cracking".]
And now, feast your eyes upon just how awesome the execution was. Can you even imagine dealing with this? LOL
