Sometime ago, I read about an upset bank customer banking in a large sum of money but in a small denomination, enough to create a hassle for the bank counting the entire amount. Today, someone or rather another party has beat that feat.
Samsung paid Apple $1 billion in 5-cent coins for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company. 30 trucks arrived at Apple headquarters with the cash.
This happened two days ago (Sep 23).
Initially, the security company that protects the facility said the trucks were in the wrong place, but minutes later, Tim Cook (Apple CEO) received a call from Samsung CEO explaining that they will pay $1 billion dollars for the fine recently ruled against the South Korean company in this way.
The funny part is that the signed document does not specify a single payment method, so Samsung is entitled to send the creators of the iPhone their billion dollars in the way they deem best.
