Samsung Lets The World Know Its Phones Are Breakable
from the just-reminding-you dept
Psst… have you seen the video about how to easily the Samsung Ultra Edition mobile phone can break? Neither had we. In fact, there didn’t seem to be much talk of it at all. But now a lot of people are going to hear about how breakable the Samsung Ultra Edition is, as the company has foolishly said it may take legal action against the creator of the video. What does Samsung think it could possibly accomplish with this? There’s no way to suppress the video, now that it’s been released; there’s no meaningful monetary reward that it could get. There’s simply no possible outcome other than alerting more people to the video and the alleged weakness of its phones. Eventually, companies will come to understand the Streisand effect, and fire the lawyers who keep encouraging them to make stupid legal decisions.
