Note 7 sales halt, due to battery issue...


In what appears to be a business blunder, Samsung has hit the bed rock this time. We all remember how Note 7 was released just a few days back. Looking like another hit from Samsung, but the phone itself has caused a massive sales halt for Samsung Courtesy: “explosive batteries”. Yes you read it right there is a major defect in Note 7’s big powerful muscular battery.

Not even few weeks have passed and this major issue has hit Samsung hard. According to source reports that many first lot phones have suffered from this volatile battery issue which causes the phone to explode randomly. Samsung says that there have been a total of 35 such incidents reported across the globe. If you do a little math (which we at our offices did I assure you), there have been 24 such defective pieces for every million sold. The issue is not just about utility but about public safety as these devices are literally exploding. To avoid any further injuries and accidents major carriers like Verizon, Sprint and AT&T have jointly suspended the sales of Note 7. Samsung has released an official statement and assured the people that they are working to fix the issue. Looks like Samsung, the carriers and those 35 most unlucky people are stuck in the Titanic of sales which is continuously sinking and hitting very hard with no chance of escape (almost). As for now companies are busy preparing insurance strategies and no one knows what’ll happen next.

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
