      If you'd ever worked in Silicon Valley, you'd know if there's any company in the valley synonymous which "sham", it's Apple.

      I think the punchline you're looking for is that Sam has an Apple coworker called Sue Yu.

    In other news an employee for Samsung (Miss A Patenttroll) is also getting unwanted media attention.

    When I first saw his card...

    it was suggested that Apple may have a spy working for them

    Reminds me of the Citroen press release about Charles Peugeot being appointed Sales Director for UK.

      Except Peugeot and Citroen have been the same company since 1976.

    Not what I would have imagined

    If El Reg had reported that a Spanish "Arsh Ole" or a Finnish "Somec Unt" worked in a Apple store now that would have made my day.

    He had better not go abroad on holiday...

    After Dec 6th. He might find there's an injunction stopping him from entering the country because he looks too much like Apple employees.

    Why on earth would he have been asked to remove his LinkedIn page, and why on earth did his employer have the right to force him to do so?

      @JDX: and who on earth told you that his employer forced him to remove the LinkedIn page?!

      WTF?

      "Why on earth would he have been asked to remove his LinkedIn page, and why on earth did his employer have the right to force him to do so?"

      Why on earth are you assuming that happened?

      I'm guessing because you don't like Apple. Classic case of bias driving cognition there, though!

    So....Samsung needs to hire......hmmmm, let's see, Christina Applegate? Another person named Steve Jobs? (hint, look on Facebook). Johnny Appleseed?

    Or, find a celebrity with the last name Apple:

    If steve was still alive, this guy would have been fired already.

      Except that would result in a human rights case. Perhaps he's hoping to cash out on something like that though.

      Joke

      If Apple fires him, he could sue, and if Sam won, and could sing,

      Then, in the news, what song would Sam have sung? (One of my silly Samsung jokes I made up around 8 years ago.)

    This reminds me of a generation ago, when I lived in Sacramento

    There was (still is I think) a local taco stand chain called "Del Taco", and they found a local housewife named Delta Aco to be their spokesperson. Her droll sweetness made for quite a funny series of commercials!

      As yes... Del Taco is still in business, and expanding... Passable Fast Food Mexican.

    How old is he?

    Is he young enough that his parents must have done this knowingly?

      Re: How old is he?

      I don't presume to know anything about him but around here a lot of East Asian migrants adopt a western or westernised name because it's too difficult for the locals to pronounce their birth name.

      If that's the case, bonus points if he chose the name himself.

        Re: How old is he?

        Aye, I've seen that phenomenon.

        Best example of this was a lass who chose the to call herself Ophelia.

        Her surname was Coq.

    Sam Sung, CEO

    I see this chap rising right to the very top of Apple Inc., much like Major Major Major in Catch-22.

      Except of course that Major Major could not rise to the top.

      His promotion to Colonel was turned down on the grounds that the Army Air Force were delighted to have a Major Major Major and weren't about to lose him just 'cos someone thought that he deserved a promotion.......

    It's pronounced Samseong Geurup (Samsung Group)in proper revised transliteration of the Hangeul 삼성그룹.

      Eh? Its still spelt exactly the same, and therefore very probably pronounced exactly the same, you pointless little fool.
