Samsung heeds Minister of State Tan Chuan-Jin’s advice

Posted on 29 August 2012

Korean gadget company embraces change indeed.

Senior Minister of State for National Development Tan Chuan-Jin said at an informal dialogue organised on Aug. 28 at SMU’s campus:

Embrace change ‘when necessary’

The dialogue was organised by the university and the Government’s feedback unit, Reach, to gather views from young Singaporeans on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s National Day Rally speech.

Not sure if Singaporeans were going Tan’s way, but it turns out that Korean electronics giant Samsung took heed of Tan’s advice by sending 30 trucks filled with 5-cent coins to Apple’s headquarters in California as payment for the fine ruled by the US jury in the recently concluded patent battle between the two tech giants.

Why you feel like Teo Chee Hean when reading the news these days:

“It’s all bullshit!”
