King of Samsung: a chairman's reign of cunning and corruption
At the outset, I am quite OS agnostic and have been looking at upgrading my iPhone 4 to either a WP8 or Android phone. I may still go with an iPhone 5 but I am frankly becoming a bit bored.
This preface was for the purposes of introducing this link to a Verge article which really bothers me. I am hardly a naif and have lived extensively on 3 continents. I am not unaware about rampant corruption, especially in Montreal where I am living at the moment.
The article is entitled "King of Samsung: a chairman's reign of cunning and corruption"
A very enlightening read.

just curious, was Asia in any of those continents?
what Samsung is doing is fairly standard in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China, and to some extent Singapore. Southeast Asian countries take it to a whole new level judging from the comments in that article it appears a good majority of people have never lived overseas.

I am quite aware of other scandals there, especially the Lockheed and Recruit scandals in Japan. I just did not feel I should raise that in case some people thought I was being xenophobic.
I still feel due to the prominence of Samsung this was worth mentioning as this particular case seemed particularly egregious.
