I’ve been a little busy recently so this is just a brief post with some interesting links.
How has Samsung become such a huge force that it’s even possible it might surpass almighty Apple? Businessweek has a feature on the Korean giant and its low-profile chairman.
Here’s another article about an Asian corporate giant, Malaysian-Chinese billionaire Robert Kuok, the founder of the Shangri-La hotel chain and owner of Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post.
In keeping with the wealthy Asian theme, check out an article about a Taiwan snack and media magnate on this new journalism site. This guy’s gotten a lot of flak for supporting mainland China and eventual unification, and his foiled purchase of Next Media has been controversial, but at least he’s not a hypocrite in his China views.
