    It's a complete BS. Samsung will not pay this money in the next couple of years. There will be another court, then another and so on.

    Its trolling of the population, not of Apple. :)

    The same bank that withdrew $1B of 5 cent coins will deposit $1B of 5 cent coins. Moreover, it will charge twice for the withdrawal and the deposit.

    Definitely a joke. There will be appeals and counter-suing involved. And no bank will let anyone withdraw $1bn in coins. They wouldn't even let me withdraw a portion of my savings ($5m) in coins. C'mon

    It's not real. It's from 9gag.

    Actually, the story seems to be going viral. I definitely don't think this is a poor attempt, though your spelling is definitely poor.

    Samsung would require roughly 20 billion 5 cent coins in order to do this. To the best of my knowledge, there aren't that many 5 cent coins in circulation. Due to the weight of the coins, they would require roughly 2800 trucks, not 30ish. An obvious hoax.
