Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "Finland is Nokia. Nokia is Finland. I've traveled to quite a few number of countries this year, and the only place where I see Lumia phones is this chunk of ice that I call home. According to the Finnish business publication Taloussanomat, who references data from IDC, Q1 2013 was the first quarter where mobile phones from the South Korean handset maker Samsung outsold those designed in Espoo. If that's not alarming, I don't know what is." Ouch.

Its not just lobbying. Samsung is a huge conglomerate. You can literally live a Samsung only life. Google it and you'll understand.

Yes, their power is considerable; far, far greater than would be that of Google, Apple and Microsoft combined in the States in relation to the national polity and economic structure as a whole in SK, on account of the diversity and depth of its manifold operations. It won't be South Korea that saves North Korea when it finally collapses, it will be Samsung.
