Samsung Is The Latest Company To Capitalize On MJ’s Death


cyuscavage / February 10, 2010

Sigh. Another day, another way for a major corporation to make a buck off the deceased Michael Jackson. On the same day the King of Pop’s former doctor pled not guilty to a manslaughter charge stemming from MJ’s death, Samsung announced that they’re planning to release a limited-edition Michael Jackson This Is It hard drive that comes preloaded with his final documentary, This Is It, that was released recently. The hard drive comes equipped with 500GB of space and a DRM-protected copy of This Is It on it. If you’re collecting Michael memorabilia, this might be a nice pickup. But at this rate, don’t expect the MJ goods to dry up anytime soon. Check for it here on Feb 24, for a retail of $123. —Chris Yuscavage
