    Last week there was speculation from Korea that Samsung was considering either dismissing or demoting JK Shin, the head of the Samsung mobile division, due to the major sales slump which hit Samsung mobile devices in 2013. A new report indicates the Samsung board decided to do neither of these things and Shin will continue as the head of Samsung mobile. Despite this, it could be simply a temporary "stay of execution" if he can't turn things around.

    Here's a quote with more of the details,

    What do you think? Is it too soon for Samsung's board to be thinking about replacing Shin, or is it simply the cut-throat nature of the business?

    Samsung ran out of innovative ideas lately. Reason why their sales nose dived. Sure bigger screen and more pixels, faster processor but now it's to the point that a two year old phone performs just as well as a new one.

    If this year going to be like the last, he will be gone for sure like that ferry owner that committed suicide. Failure is not an option in Asia :)
