In the past we have seen embarrassing tweets and posts from celebrities who were paid to endorse a particular phone brand, but ending up tweeting that promotion from another device instead. Perhaps learning from many such mishaps, Samsung has reportedly told all Olympians to hide the Apple logo from their iPhones if they were to use it to record events during the open ceremonies. As you guys are aware, the Winter Olympics are upon us and in light of that, Samsung has decided to take it as a great opportunity to spread the word about their products.
According to reports, Samsung has apparently given every Olympian taking part in the games a free Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and because of that, they are asking Olympians to hide the Apple logo from their iPhones. These guidelines were revealed when members of the Swiss Olympic team found them inserted into the gift bags. What do you guys think? Do you feel that it is unreasonable for Samsung to ask that the Olympians hide the Apple logos from their iPhones? Also, do you think that Samsung’s guidelines will be enforced? Or will we be seeing Olympians openly use their iPhones to start recording the ceremonies anyway?
