    I'll bet Apple loves this. As the article points out, the exploding battery problem "...may be linked to third-party USB-C cables." Still, with Apple introducing the iPhone 7 next week, a delay in shipments of the Note 7 is bad news for Samsung. As HDC Asset Management Fund manager Park Jung-hoon said, "Samsung will need to respond to this quickly in order to calm market jitters."

    Different electrical outlets aren't there? Maybe they were using US cables or batteries.

    While Apple may be gloating over Samsung's misfortune, it seems that the company has its own problems. Today's Clark Howard Newsletter has an article on How iPhone 6 and 6s owners suffering from the dreaded "touch disease" can join a new lawsuit against Apple.
