Fire in Korea causes error messages on Samsung phones; service is now restored
posted by Alan F. / Apr 20, 2014, 10:33 AM
The fire started Sunday afternoon (Korean time) on the fourth floor of the building, which contains the back-up data center for the Korean manufacturer. Some credit card related services were met with the error message. The company's main data center is located in Suwon and was not affected.
Korean media reports that there were no fatalities in the blaze. And as we said, things have returned to normal as far as Samsung.com is concerned. Looking at the video below, the result could have been much worse.

Nah, from the looks of it, they're burning Windows.

No, their designers were making new smartphone designs and when they presented it to one of their consultants, the consultant started spiting fire everywhere and lasers came out of his eyes.

Nothing much to say, just hope that no one is injured there, hope everything is alright.
