Michal Lev-Ram also dives into Samsung for Fortune. One interesting/humorous tidbit I did not realize:
Samsung, which means “three stars” in Korean, started out as a small supplier of dried fish and noodles in the city of Daegu back in 1938. Eventually the company’s ambitious founder, Byung-Chull Lee, moved the company headquarters to the country’s capital, Seoul, and expanded into new businesses.
Three stars, or as it’s known in America: “meh”.
