Former Apple retail employee Sam Sung is using his rather ironic name and job history to raise money for a Canadian charity (via Pocket-lint). Sung worked for Apple in Vancouver's Pacific Centre store as a specialist and recently found one of his old business cards in pristine condition when it fell out of a book. Realizing it may be a desirable memento, Sung is now auctioning the card with "no major folds, dents or scratches" on eBay. The card comes in an autographed frame with Sung's blue Apple retail T-shirt and lanyard.

I came across one of my old business cards the other day when it fell out of a book.

So, with a view to raising money for a very deserving charity, I'm auctioning the only “Apple Sam Sung” business card I have left and I'm going to donate ALL of the proceeds [minus eBay fees] to Children's Wish, BC & Yukon - a not-for-profit that grants wishes to sick children.

The auction has received over 50 bids already and currently stands at US$510. Bidding runs until the evening of August 15.

Typical Sam Sung. Copying Jony Ive's auctioning of Apple merch for charity. Doesn't have an original thought!

I'm surprised that he hasn't been sued by Samsung because of his name! :D

Who would want this :confused:
According to the article, at least 50 people who support charity, have a sense of humor, and don't follow the Apple/Samsung wars would like to have this. :)
