No, Samsung did not pay Apple $1 billion in five cent coins

Several days ago, Apple scored a major legal victory against Samsung, which is why the Korean company now owes $1.05 billion to Cupertino. And obviously, the money has not been transferred yet since Samsung intends to appeal the judge's decision. Therefore, as hilarious as it may seem, Samsung did not really pay Apple its humongous fine with 30 truckloads of five cent coins, in contrast to what is claimed by some well-tailored story that is now circulating the web...

Obviously this would be a little more than impractical...but it would make an awesome FU to Apple for being trolls themselves in the courtroom. But clearly Samsung doesn't actually owe that amount as of yet. Once it goes through the appeals court that price will likely be lowered, at least somewhat. Most cases like this where a sum is awarded the appeals court usually knocks off either a portion, or reduces it drastically. It's still quite outrageous that $1.5 Billion was awarded to Apple, but in the end Samsung can hope for a huge reduction in that amount before the day of reckoning comes and they have to pay up.
