Samsung Pays $1B to Apple with 30 Truck Loads of 5 Cent Coins? It's NOT TRUE.

A funny story is sweeping the internet. Samsung paid $1.05 billion to Apple by sending 30 trucks containing five-cent coins.

According to PaperBlog, the trucks were sent to Apple's main office in California this morning. Initially, the security of the company prevented the intrusion. However, Apple CEO Tim Cook received a call from the chief executive of Samsung that they have sent the payment for the fine ruled by the jury in the recently concluded patent battle of the two tech giants.

The funny thing is, the story originated from a meme of the popular website Thus, the news report is a hoax.
