    when I opened up my old PS3 after YLOD i noted that half the chips/semiconductors (i'm no tech head) on it were Samsung.

    Samsung + CPUs ?

    Samsung have really become the number one electronics company in Australia, and good products and big advertising really is what done it for them. So for people outside Japan it seems like no bad idea but once you head into japan with korean stuff and the PSV. I doubt this will do anything, especially since everything made in China anyways.

      Not just Australia but the world’s number one electronics company now. A lot of people aren’t aware but Samsung are actually Korean and not Japanese which is a bit of a twist ;)

    Samsung are really king now, their S2 is top of the cellphone market too.

    Samsung powers tonnes of shit. The iPhone is powered by their processor.

    Samsung fanboi from way back. Their displays have always been top-notch and it's been interesting watching their rise to prominence.
