Wicked Genius: Samsung pays Apple $1 billion in 30 truckloads of 5 cent coins

South Korean Tech Giant Samsung decided to pay the 1billion dollars fine slammed on it by a court in favor of US company apply using 5-cent coins.
30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins arrived the California headquarters of Apple inc.this morning. The security staff at the  facility initially thought the trucks were at the wrong place until Apple's CEO Tim Cook received a call from Lee Kun-hee, the Samsung CEO explaining that the coins is their way of paying the $1 billion dollars fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.
Since the ruling did not specific any single payment method, Samsung can choose to pay Apple the one billion dollars whichever way they choose. And they chose the 5 cent coins.
This dirty, wicked and genius geek troll play is aimed at tormenting Apple executives as they will need to put in long valuable man hours into counting all that money, to see if it's complete and and then try to deposit it and see if a bank can accept all the coins.
Chairman of Samsung Electronics, Lee Kun-hee, told the media that his company , Samsung is not going to be intimidated by a group of “geeks with style” and that if they ( Apple ) want to play dirty, they also know how to do it.
"You can use your coins to buy refreshments at the little machine for life or melt the coins to make computers, that’s not my problem, I already paid them and fulfilled the law. A total of 20 billion coins, delivery hope to finish this week."  the Samsung Chief Continued.
We're yet to see the end of the battle between Samsung and Apple.
