Apple and Samsung may have been scrapping on a legal front for many years over product names, designs, patents and a whole lot more, but if it were not for all the competition between the two companies, this guys name would have no comedy value what so ever. Mr Sam Sung was an Apple employee, making him one of the few, if not the only Sam-sung “thing” allowed anywhere near the Apple campus.
Of course Sam Sung sees the funny side of his own name, and despite the fact he no longer works for Apple, he discovered one of his old business cards and decided to put it on eBay for a quick profit… only joking, he did it to raise money for charity. It’s a unique item for Apple fans eager to own an Apple business card with the name Samsung on it, but it’s all in good spirit and for charity so let’s not mock the people who are bidding.
All funds minus eBay fees are goign to Children’s Wish, BC & Yukon, a non profit organisation that helps grant wishes to sick children. Sam Sung’s card as well as his old uniform and EasyPay tag have been signed and mounted in a frame for the auction.
The auction is active until August 15th and at time of writing it was just over $6000 (Canadian). Check out the official listing here.
