We have nothing to do with Israeli tablet ad says Samsung
While the eyes of most of the world were watching the new commercial for the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl, eyes in the Middle East were staring at a different commercial that  features a Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi tablet. Israeli cable television company HOT ran an ad that showed the tablet made by the Korean manufacturer, disabling an Iranian nuclear facility.

Samsung, for its part, denies that it had anything to do with the spot. "Samsung Electronics is aware of a recent news report in Iranian media regarding an advertisement aired by HOT cable network of Israel," the company said in a statement to AllThingsD. "This advertisement was produced by HOT cable network without Samsung’s knowledge or participation."

And as if Samsung needed to hear the "b" word again, Iran says it is considering banning all Samsung devices. The country's lawmakers still consider Samsung responsible for the spot and could pass a law to prevent sales of the Korean manufacturer's products. Now this response, we would agree with our pal the barista, is over the top.

Damn... The Koreans don't have any political issues with Iran, now this. It's only going to make Iran alone.
