[YAHOO] Samsung voted most preferred consumer electronics brand - Page 6  

post #51 of 57
Yeah but do they make submarines and oil tankers like Daewoo?

Daewoo afaik were another Korean conglomerate with their hands in all the same kind of pie's like Samsung as well as a submarine and ship building division. They left the consumer electronics realm a few years ago though I think. biggrin.gif


If there is ever re-unification on the Korean peninsula, the average northerner is in for some culture shock!!

It'll be like stepping from the 1950's straight into Blade Runner or Minority Report biggrin.gif

The South Koreans are now doing so well that surely they would soon have the financial might to be able to pull off what Germany did when they reunified with the east (Assuming the North Korean leadership gave up and asked for reunification rather than nuked the south)

Actually, maybe thats why China are still meddling and supporting the north. If the Koreas reunified and the South Korean conglomerates shifted manufacturing from cheep Chinese labour to cheap north korean labour, the Chinese would be out of pocket, the Koreas would keep all that money inhouse so to speak and the reunification would eventually pay for itself and Korea would be the new Japan in every sphere

I never realized that a couple decades later, I'd be massively in love with my 64" Sansung plasma TV, my Samsung Galaxy Nexus and even my color lazer printer.
Samsung is now one of the brands that commands major respect for what they're producing...

I remember when LG was still GoldStar, but yeah Samsung has come a long way.

cool story bro, except Samsung products are manufactured in Korea and communism supporting fascism? I think not.

Actually, Samsung has moved a lot of their production overseas, mainly to China.

Samsung has come a long way but they could do better. 2 of my family members had their LCD TVs die because of the capacitor issue. I had a Samsung projection TV back in the day and it died right after the warranty ended, However, I still have a microwave and 15" LCD monitor that are over 10 years old that still work. Also have a refrigerator that I got when they first hit the market in the US and I really like it. I loved my Galaxy S and my Galaxy Nexus is awesome. My bro's Galaxy Note isn't too shabby either.

Samsung pretty much make everything and they have their had in every industry. Some people call South Korea the Republic of Samsung.

I don't see a unified Korea happening any time soon. Even if North Korea collapses it would be a huge financial burden to South Korea and the rest of the world. There would be a lot of sociological hurdles to over come. There would be linguistic, cultural, and physical barriers that would make unification very difficult more so than Germany's. Thousands of North Korean defectors arrive in South Korea every year. The majority have a very difficult time adjusting to South Korean society. It is totally alien too them.

Personally, I wouldn't want a unified Korea. I have too much hatred for them. Too many in my family were killed in the Korean War. My father's cousin was captured by the North Koreans, he is still unaccounted for. They've also taken so many cheap shots at South Korea. They even sunk the South Korean Navy vessel named after my hometown.

In September 2011, the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) said Apple had earned a record ACSI score of 87 (out of 100) in its PC consumer satisfaction ranking, continuing the company’s eight-year-straight lead over rivals such as HP (78), Dell (77), Acer (77), Toshiba (77), Lenovo (77), Sony (77) and Compaq (75).

contradictory or entirely different?

it's kind of insane that china still supports north korea. of course, they probably wouldn't be willing to take as many reckless actions if they weren't supported by china. it kind of shows that the cold war is still going on, to some degree.

Neither, outdated. That was in September, Samsung is #1 as of this month.
