No company is immune to building an Edsel, but one of the most prominent failures in world history has to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. I mean, this phone was responsible for causing some people severe burns, it destroyed a number of vehicles, and was even banned from airplanes because they could suddenly catch fire or, for the most part, blow up. For what could have been a pretty serious tragedy for a prominent technology company, Samsung came out of that shit storm smelling like a rose. In fact, fans of the brand have been quite forgiving and, as such, Samsung has been said to be offering Note 7 owners a pretty significant discount to help keep them all happy. But, that’s not why I’m talking to you today. Instead, I’m here to tell you that Samsung has just received approval and a permit from California to put self-driving cars on the road. Yes, you read that right – the company that brought you the explosive Note 7 could soon put autonomous cars on the road.
