    You know your product is a success when your factories are raided by armed robbers to steal 40,000 units of your devices. Such is the case with Samsung recently. One of their factories in Brazil was robbed at gun-point by a group of hijackers. Supposedly up to 20 gang members were involved in the heist.

    The estimated value of the stolen devices has not been confirmed and there is a wide range of estimates from $6.3 Million to $36 Million. The devices stolen included smartphones, tablets and notebook computers. Here's a quote with a brief description of the robbery,

    São Paulo authorities are currently investigating and hope to make arrests soon.
