After Osama's death, the US put itself somewhere on "let's be careful" and "poop your pants" level of heightened alert, bracing itself for retaliatory action. So far, so good - but Samsung, of all targets, was threatened today. By whom?
Nobody knows. The electronics mega-giant's Seoul HQ received an email bomb threat via its Canadian wing, but it seems extremely doubtful that al-Qaeda would single out a consumer electronics company instead of, say, an American embassy. Or pretty much anything other than a consumer electronics company. Still, 50 Seoul special police flocked to the HQ, just in case, though no threat's materialised. [Korea Herald via TNW]
