PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Apparently, an advertising agency hired by Samsung is trying to buy people to post questions about the company on StackOverflow. This is what Delyan Kratunov was asked to do (he declined):

All we need you to do is talk about the SSAC (Samsung Smart App Challenge) and get the word out. How? We were thinking about 4 questions on Stackoverflow over the span of a month..... as well as replies to posts made by other members. Don't worry about finding the questions to reply to because we will send you links.

Stay classy, Samsung.

I suppose this goes in the same category as the recent findings that Samsung is cheating in benchmarks:

I think what we really need is the corporate equivalent of dog shaming. Find out who is responsible for this, then put a sign around their neck that says, 'I cheated on benchmark results for our flagship smartphone'. Then take a photo of that, and plaster it all over the blogosphere.
