    Think it could have hurt their brand a bit?...555555....maybe billions
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you'll have to catch up.

    They were unable to even supply working phones to replace the ones that were returned. Production has been completely terminated.

    I just finished a good book, Seoul Man, about an American who goes to work for Hyundai.

    Korea takes their big companies as sort of National companies.....Samsung, Hyundau, LG
    So this would be a total national embarrassment for Korea

    Not sure why it's taken so long to issue this statement. I remember hearing announcements at the airport in September, asking passengers to switch off their note 7.

    Mind you, it's the battery manufacturer that screwed up, not Samsung.
