    Lmao you have the same problem with yours? I had to call samsung yesterday cause I used the self cleaning mode on my oven and something blew up, now the oven is locked and I can't get it to turn on.... Thankfully I'm under warranty...

    Honestly the customer service isn't bad when calling, but the girl was like "do you have a samsung phone?" And I couldn't help but to respond with "do those blow up too?"

    They refuse to come out under warranty, apparently making the sound of a Kalashnikov machine gun while refilling the ice maker with water or dispensing cold drinking water is normal. (Yes I removed and replaced the three month old filter and double checked it is seated and dropped the water pressure ... )

    I think they know who I am and this is payback! ;)

    Funny that Samsung has so many patents when I can't remember a single product from them ever-- and I mean, of any type, they make so many-- that I thought was innovative.

    Only innovative thing google's done were page rank and gmail.

    Check my last post. I have to say in their defense an ice maker that can scare off burglars is pretty innovative., :\

    Good thing that Google's never said anything of the sort then huh?

    ...and the show is on. Someone's gotta bring tissues to clean up with later tho.

    Stef was probably thinking of this quote ... "Apple, Facebook threats to open Internet, says Google's Sergey Brin".

    Yeah. I'm aware of the headline but what did Brin actually say about Apple? Looks like his comments were lobbed at Facebook. Maybe there was some tiny sentence in there where he named Apple too but it wasn't obvious in a quick read. If you find his actual statements and can share them it would be appreciated.

    I wasn't thinking of anything specific, simply suggesting that was, perhaps the source of the comment. Headlines often plant larger impressions in readers memories than the details warrant.

    True enough

    Seriously though ... I'd like to know if amongst Scamsung's trove they have one on ice makers they are not using... our new Scammy fridge has a lousy one!

    If you hate them so much, why did you buy it? Or are you talking about a workplace fridge?

    Watching Samsung's shameless behavior in the cell phone market has lead to me crossing them off my list of future products (all I have are two computer displays, and neither are particularly impressive).

    Google copied and pasted from Apple, Microsoft, Oracle and many many more. Now they want to come up with bunch of useless patents and defend themselves.

    I'd put duck-tape or something over their logo

    With three different Supreme Court cases that will affect patent law (and specifically software patents) being heard this year there may finally be a lid put on some of the business tactics that depend on software patent claims against competitors to force a particular outcome.
