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.

He's declared he's consulted for various companies. That's not the same thing.

Its like the people who are commissioned to write first party Windows Phone/Windows Apps. They're paid consultants, mercenary developers who work off of billable hours. Its a lucrative business.
