Samsung says it has the best technology and doesn't need to steal

Police in South Korea have raided the offices of Samsung Electronics' display manufacturing arm. The raid was made in conjunction with a police investigation into allegations of technology used in OLED panel manufacturing.

Authorities say that the investigation is seeking information on whether partners of rival display maker LG Display Co. leaked technology secrets to competitors and whether or not Samsung was involved.

Both Samsung and LG have been involved in criminal probes after allegations of criminal activity surfaced last year. In July 2012, six LG Display employees were charged with stealing OLED technology from Samsung.

LG Display maintains that it did not report Samsung to the police to kick off the current investigation.

Competition in the OLED market is fierce as consumer demand for TVs and other electronics products using the technology is expected to grow significantly. OLED TVs are expected to be one of the biggest growth segments in the industry over the next several years.

Samsung and LG have been tied up in South Korean courts for years over patents relating to OLED technology.

Seriously, this is North Korea we're talking about. They don't have advanced electronics equipment.

So yeah, it probably is an iMac.

Don't laugh!
That is the same supercomputer used to design their fearsome nukes. It's a powerhouse!

Compared with the computational power available for use during the Manhattan Project... yes, it is a supercomputer! Many times over in fact.

During the Manhattan Project, they needed to calculate the critical mass of the fission core (among many other things - eg. avoiding accidentally creating critical mass during uranium refinement). This couldn't easily be done experimentally without resorting to trial and error bombs (or manufacturing). No one wanted to do that for obvious reasons (although many critical mass experiments were carried out... some fatally so). Many bright minds were stuck with slow, failure prone mechanical computers for calculation. These days it seems to be the opposite - many lazy minds with tons of computing power! (surely myself included).

NASA was running shuttle launches on an Amiga up until just a few years ago.
