    Former Apple retail employee Sam Sung is using his rather ironic name and job history to raise money for a Canadian charity (via Pocket-lint). Sung worked for Apple in Vancouver's Pacific Centre store as a specialist and recently found one of his old business cards in pristine condition when it fell out of a book. Realizing it may be a desirable memento, Sung is now auctioning the card with "no major folds, dents or scratches" on eBay. The card comes in an autographed frame with Sung's blue Apple retail T-shirt and lanyard.

    The auction has received over 50 bids already and currently stands at US$510. Bidding runs until the evening of August 15.

    I'm surprised that he hasn't been sued by Samsung because of his name! :D

    I could certainly be wrong, but aren't those items technically owned by Apple?

    I guess not, considering business cards are customarily handed out anyhow.

    Typical Sam Sung. Copying Jony Ive's auctioning of Apple merch for charity. Doesn't have an original thought!

    Probably... but since it's for charity Apple would look like horrible people if they stopped this... might as well let it slide and the news will pass.

    According to the article, at least 50 people who support charity, have a sense of humor, and don't follow the Apple/Samsung wars would like to have this. :)

    Wow. Makes you wonder how much more Samsung and Apple could've given to charities instead of lawyers. Both companies practice philanthropy but in this case, more couldn't hurt.

    EDIT: And to Mr. Sam Sung, nice idea. I wish him all the best.

    The day that I understand the significance of this, is the day I have reached the final level and get "that glow".

    No. They don't lend you business cards and shirts.

    Apple and Samsung should step up

    Apple and Samsung should collaborate and give substantial donations for this guy's charity.
