Apple sued Samsung and won.  Sumsung has to pay Apple 1.05 billion dollars.  Which they are doing - with 30 truckloads of nickels.

This dirty but genius geek troll play is a new headache to Apple executives as they will need to put in long hours counting all that money, to check if it is all there and to try to deposit it crossing fingers to hope a bank will accept all the coins.


I wrote this a day early and set it up to post.  Only then did I check Snopes.   It turns out that this story is not true,

21,000,000,000 nickels would require all the nickels produced in the past few decades.  That would require about 2,755 eighteen-wheeler trucks to transport.

This verdict had actually been thrown out.  however, there have been new verdicts, and Samsung does owe Apple $929.83 million.
