    This is not an investigative endeavor. I'm just wondering if others are asking this question. How does a company like Samsung that has done so many different models of phones, computers and tablets have this kind of battery problem?

    And the timing seems almost impossibly too good to be true. Google launches its first foray as an independent smartphone manufacturer while simultaneously the largest Android smartphone maker crash and burns. If it's a timing coincidence it is the biggest ever in smartphones. Seems too unlikely. Anyone else thought this?

    Jesus wept. No, I don't think the Note 7 was a target of industrial sabotage. Getting a bit silly now.

    I think it was caused by space aliens who want to collect all the s-pens to use as probes.

    They used one of their own battery makers -- Why would they sabotage themselves?

    Inside job? Someone paid off? Apple got to someone to tweak a spec? Its not impossible I suppose but I personally doubt it.

    Funny how so many people here so quick to write off a theory.

    The world is a very big place, with a lot of nooks and crannies not seen every day. Espionage occurs every day at the state level. Who's to say that it doesn't happen at the private sector level too?

    Samsung isn't likely to make the same mistake twice. I wouldn't be surprised if Samsung traces the issue to an "insider threat" when it is all said and done.

    No one is saying Samsung did it themselves...we're talking an insider threat, either inside the company, or somewhere on the factory lines.

    Industrial sabotage is a huge issue in Asia.

    No, just poor quality control. This fiasco falls squarely on Samsung.

    Conspiracy theories? It's not a conspiracy. Stuff like this happens. Insider threats are a real issue at both the public and private sector level.

    Oh good grief.

    If we're to seriously be considering conspiracy theories, then here's another one: a rival manufacturer's CEO planted someone at Samsung to cause this to happen to their phones because Samsung's customers touch themselves as night.

    It could happen, folks. The world is a very big and scary place.

    Forbes Welcome
    And where is an insider threat (with facts) for this "Samsung Sabotage" theory? There isn't any -- that is the theory I am talking about. Hence why I said not going to engage in random theories with no facts.

    I wouldn't be surprised if after the dust settles there is evidence of something being cooked up. Apple's slipping market share would be my best guess... not saying it did happen this way, but I just wouldn't be surprised.

    It happened with the Playstation 4 upon release. People really are naively blind as to what goes on at the top/behind closed doors.
    IRIS Scanner? Fingerprint Sensor? Pulse Monitor/Oxygen Saturation Monitor/Footsteps Counter. Front-facing Camera, with Facial Recognition?
    You have no idea! NO idea!

    Doesn't necessarily have to be Apple or another competitor. Could be a disgruntled employee or someone paid off by a certain state government.

    No facts, but if you do some reading, it will make sense.

    Or maybe poor design. What bothered me about the first recall was how quickly the CPSC decided that Samsung's position that only batteries manufacturered by one vendor were faulty and the source of the fires.

    I wonder now if we will ever know what really happened.

    It's not impossible. But it's more likely to not be sabotage.

    All random dots can be connected by anybody with a pencil.
