Your word for today: Sam-suing

Samsung's latest evil invention


When I was a kid in a different decade, heck a different century, heck, a different millennium — talk was cheap–and phones cost a few dollars a month to rent.

Now talk is cheaper and phones cost a small fortune.

Which brings us to the millions, perhaps billions that Samsung is going to lose on its latest evil invention:  The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

IF you click on the link above you will realize you can’t change the battery in this little beauty.  Why?  For your convenience?  Yeah. Right.

Could it be because the space cadets who run Samsung are greedy and they wanted you to buy a new phone, probably before you finished paying for your present one?

Greed.

Makes the world go around.  And will give Samsung a battery of lawsuits.  Maybe this will create a new word: Sam-suing.

Serves ’em right!
