Samsung allegedly tried to bribe man not to talk about his exploding Galaxy Note 7

Reports now indicate that the company performed its own internal testing while simultaneously getting in the way of what its own employees were trying to do by banning written communication on the topic. There’s another wrinkle to the story, though — one that suggests Samsung’s marketing team was trying to squelch reporting on the problem while its engineers frantically tried to find the flaw.
