Samsung บริษัทเทคโนโลยียักษ์ใหญ่สัญชาติเกาหลีอาจติดปัญหาเรื่องข้อกฎหมายจนไม่สามารถปิดดีลซื้อกิจการ NXP Semiconductor บริษัทเซมิคอนดักเตอร์ที่ใช้ในอุตสาหกรรมยานยนต์รายใหญ่ของฝั่งยุโรป เพื่อขยายกิจการในภาคส่วนธุรกิจนี้ของตัวเอง โดยคาดกันว่า บริษัทเจ้าของผลิตภัณฑ์ตระกูล Galaxy S ถูกต่อต้านอย่างหนักในดีลนี้ เนื่องจากถูกมองว่าขัดต่อระเบียบการค้าเสรีและกฎหมายที่ได้ต่อต้านของทางการผูกขาดนั่นเอง
Samsung ทุ่มเงิน 6,800 ล้านเหรียญสหรัฐฯ ซื้อกิจการ NXP Semiconductor
ย้อนกลับไปช่วงเดือนเมษายน ที่ผ่านมา มีข่าวลืออย่างหนักว่า Samsung เตรียมที่จะเข้าเทคโอเวอร์บริษัท NXP Semiconductor ผู้ผลิตของเซมิคอนดักเตอร์ที่ใช้ในอุตสาหกรรมยานยนต์รายใหญ่จากประเทศเนเธอร์แลนด์ด้วยเม็ดเงินมหาศาลถึง 6,800 ล้านเหรียญสหรัฐฯ หรือประมาณ 220,000 ล้านบาท เพื่อหวังขยายกิจการในภาคส่วนธุรกิจนี้ของตัวเองมากขึ้น แต่ล่าสุด ดูเหมือนว่าแผนการดังกล่าวต้องสะดุดซะแล้ว เพราะขนาดของบริษัท NXP ดูจะใหญ่เกินกว่าที่ Samsung จะเข้าซื้อกิจการได้ทั้งหมดในคราวเดียว ถึงแม้ว่าสถานะการเงินของบริษัทจะมีเงินสดในธนาคารกว่า 1.14 แสนล้านเหรียญสหรัฐฯ หรือประมาณ 3 ล้านล้านบาทก็ตาม
แถมหลายฝ่ายยังมองว่าการเทคโอเวอร์ครั้งนี้ อาจเข้าข่ายผูกขาดทางการค้า ซึ่งขัดต่อหลักการค้าเสรีของสหภาพยุโรปก็เป็นได้ โดยก่อนหน้านี้ บริษัทแห่งนี้ก็เคยถูกรัฐบาลจีนเข้าแทรกแซงการทำธุรกิจในแดนมังกรมาแล้วรอบหนึ่ง เพราะมองว่าขัดต่อนโยบายต่อต้านการผูกขาดนั่นเอง อย่างไรก็ตาม นี่ไม่ใช่ครั้งแรกที่บริษัทยักษ์ใหญ่แห่งวงการไอทีพยายามกลืนบริษัทคู่แข่งที่เล็กกว่า เพราะย้อนกลับไปราว ๆ 5 ปีก่อน ทาง Qualcomm ก็มีแผนที่จะเทคโอเวอร์ NXP Semiconductor มาแล้วเหมือนกัน แต่สุดท้ายแผนก็ล่มเพราะถูกหลายฝ่ายต่อต้านอย่างหนัก
ส่วนทางด้าน Samsung ก็ไม่ได้แปลว่าพวกเขาจะยอมล้มเลิกแผนขยายธุรกิจเซมิคอนดักเตอร์ของตัวเอง เพราะพวกเขายังมีตัวเลือกเป็นบริษัทรายเล็กรายน้อยอีกเป็นจำนวนมากให้เลือกซื้อกิจการเพื่อขยายธุรกิจยานยนต์, เทคโนโลยี 5G และอุปกรณ์ IoT ต่าง ๆ ของนตัวเอง และ Betclic88 ศูนย์รวมความบันเทิงในการเดิมพันคาสิโนออนไลน์ ทุกรูปแบบ ครบครัน เดิมพันง่าย รวยไว ปลอดภัย มีรางวัลมากมาย ให้บริการ 24 ชั่วโมง

In January of this year, June Shannon and then-boyfriend Geno Doak celebrated one year of sobriety.
Suffice it to say that Geno did not have a Hot Girl Summer in any way, shape, or form.
Now, he has reportedly checked into a rehab facility.
Mama June Shannon's ex-boyfriend was reportedly hospitalized earlier this month.
Though reasons are unclear, we know only that he was hospitalized in Florida.
During that medical crisis, doctors referred him to a South Carolina recovery center.
On Monday of this week, Geno checked himself in to that facility.
He is reportedly currently a resident of that rehabilitation center.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Geno will be a long-term resident.
The facility's long-term intensive program requires at least a 120-day commitment.
If necessary, it has been revealed, Geno might remain there for up to a year.
His time there will not just be a sober vacation, either.
The program in which Geno will participate is designed to help him transition to sober living.
This will not be his first attempt at adopting this new lifestyle.
He made a similar effort in early 2020 following a dangerous downward spiral that could have claimed his and June's lives.
Late this summer, Geno was sentenced to 16 months behind bars (sort of).
This was the sentence following his felony drug possession charge.
Famously, he and June were arrested in 2019 and found to be in possession of crack cocaine.
Geno's plea deal, however, meant that his "sentence" does not have to involve actual incarceration.
Macon County, Alabama has a Community Corrections Program.
Geno has been participating in this program in order to serve out his sentence.
Similarly, June avoided prison time in her case.
She agreed to perform community service.
Additionally, June agreed to court supervision in order to ensure that she is abiding by the terms of her deal.
Recently, June has been linked to a 24-year-old TikToker.
Himself already a father as well as a newly sober addict, Jordan McCollum has reportedly enjoyed many financial gifts from Mama June.
A car, then a replacement car, then furniture, and allegedly even a weekly cash allowance has improved his life considerably.
June has loudly insisted that she and Jordan are only friends.
However, no one -- including her family -- seems to be buying that.
Even if June and Jordan aren't boning, they say, June clearly wants that to happen ... and is hoping to buy her way into his heart and bed.
This has been a source of worry for June's loved ones, and not simply because of the age gap.
June and Jordan are both sober, and Jordan more recently so than June is.
Because of that, her family fears that he is a risk at falling off of the wagon ... and he could drag June down with him.
We're leery of condemning Jordan or assuming that he'll inevitably fall prey to his addiction.
But it is a little weird to see him and June enter what appears to be a potentially toxic "friendship."
We are glad that Geno is getting the help that he needs and wish him all of the best in his recovery.
If you watched the most recent season of Love After Lockup (not to be confused with spin-off series Life After Lockup, which is currently airing new episodes on WeTV), then you may have found yourself wondering about the fate of a boy known to viewers only as Dougie.
Dougie is the son of Doug (we know -- with no last names, it's like trying to keep differentiate between British monarchs), who married Rachel while he was still serving six years behind bars.
These days, Doug has joined the long list of Love After Lockup stars who are back behind bars.
(It's almost like sudden fame is a bad idea for people who are trying to rebuild their lives following lengthy prison sentences, but that's a conversation for another time.)
Doug fell back into his old habits, and according to reports from the Kalamazoo Police Department, he was arrested for "distributing methamphetamine," leading police on a high speed chase, and then pulling a gun on a cop in a final attempt to resist arrest.
Needless to say, it'll be a long time before the man-bunned menace sees the light of day again.
That's bad news for Doug, of course, but it's very good news for Dougie and Rachel, who recently finalized her divorce from Doug.
Rachel first obtained custody of Dougie during the second of Doug's three prison sentences, and she remains the kid's guardian -- for now, at least.
Yes, according to a new report from our friends over at Starcasm, Doug is trying to obtain custody of Dougie ... despite the fact that he'll probably be locked up for the next couple of decades.
And who will gain custody of Dougie if he's taken from Rachel?
Well, according to Doug's sister Ashley, the kid will probably wind up in foster care, but Doug, his father (also named Doug), and his girlfriend Brittany don't seem to care.
They just don't want him to be in Rachel's care.
You might remember the family reunion scene, in which we learned that Doug's dad and siblings are nearly as messed up as he is.
But one member of the clan -- Doug's sister Ashley -- redeemed herself this week by going to bat for Rachel and once again and calling Brittany and her father out for forcing an innocent child to be a pawn in their game.
Ashley vented about the situation in a recent Facebook rant that we present here in its entirety.
(We're once again indebted to the folks from Starcasm for translating Ashley's somewhat-garbled status update):
"It’s f--ked up how family can be. I haven’t talked or spent time with my dad, even though he’s not doing well at all. [Doug revealed on the show that their dad is sick.] I was daddy’s girl all the way, there for him for everything, even to talk to.
"Ever since Doug, Jr. got out of prison, sh-t went sideways. They took his side on everything and didn’t care about me or my family any more. We didn’t do sh*t to anyone — he was always in the wrong. So I lost everyone but the ones that live in my household.
"Doug, Jr. getting out of prison f--ked this WHOLE FAMILY UP. On top of that, I had custody of Douglas for 10 years before I terminated my rights through the courts in favor of Rachel.
"Now look — Dougie’s dad’s going back to prison probably for 25 years or life. That’s the only lifestyle he knows and he will ever live. No one can blame anybody but Doug. He did this. He knew what he was getting into.
"Now that Doug’s ex wife Rachel has Dougie where he wants to be — the best life he could have: a person to love him, be there for him, and do a lot more than what I could have done caring for a child when I could barely take care of myself and had no one and not much support — I’m still the bad one.
"Now, Doug’s dope fiend girl [Brittany] (who’s no better, who doesn’t care for her kids much, and who has a ex that she still lives with because she f--ked up her marriage to be with a felon), now they want to cause more problems with Dougie. They would rather see him in the system, in and out of foster homes, than be where he is at and happy.
"No one gives a f--k about anything but themselves. Just leave the f--king boy alone. He’s been through enough his whole life — both parents are f--king dead beats and always will be, and he knows that. Just leave the kid alone. He’s happy and healthy, that’s all that matters. This whole situation is just bull sh*t…….."
Ashley offered further clarification in the comments while responding to a follower's questions about what exactly Doug hopes to achieve:
"Everyone’s trying to get him taken from Rachel when that’s where he wants to be. And the f--ked up thing about it is that no one else could get custody Dougie, but his dad and Brittany would rather see him in foster care than with Rachel," she wrote.
"Dougie has had a rough enough life as it is. Why even f--king act like that? Because they’re not getting their way. Doug isn’t anything but a piece of sh-t."
We probably don't need to tell you that past LAL stars haven't set the highest standard with regard to behavior.
But Doug is making a convincing case for himself as the most deplorable of them all!
As we've discussed many times in the past, Jenelle Evans is a pathological liar.
Name an aspect of her life, and you can be certain that Jenelle has spread all kinds of BS about it.
Earlier this week, a fan asked Jenelle about her health problems, and the former reality star drew some major criticism for her response.
You see, as with so much of what she says, Jenelle's comments about her medical issues didn't seem to be rooted in any sort of truth.
Now, Evans is being roasted yet again, this time for lying about the other two most sensitive subjects in her life -- her financial situation, and her thoughts about being fired from Teen Mom 2.
(As you're probably aware, it's a very long list -- Jenelle's life is basically one big sensitive subject.)
Jenelle was fired back in 2018, right around the time that she lost custody of her children.
Both of those developments were the result of many factors, most of them having to do with Jenelle's decade of shoddy parenting and abusive behavior.
But the straw that broke the camel's back was an incident in which her husband, David Eason, beat, shot and killed the family dog in front of his children.
Obviously, that's not directly Jenelle's fault, but the fact that she she co-signed that disgusting act and did everything she could to protect David from any consequences did not do her any favors in the eyes of the family court judge.
Amazingly, Evans has since regained custody of her kids, but she and her husband both remain unemployed.
The fact that neither of them has so much as filled out an application came up again this week thanks to Jenelle's claims that MTV almost took her back recently.
The conversation centered around a new project in which the network took cast members from all three Teen Mom series and put them together in a hotel for the purpose of undergoing some sort of televised therapy.
Evans claimed that MTV execs expressed an interest in having her participate in the project, but then abruptly changed their minds without offering an explanation.
"When they invite you to a Teen Mom Special in CA then no response for a month ..." she captioned an Instagram pic, adding, "I feeling sh-tty AF" with the hashtags "mental health awareness," "anxiety," and "confused."
Jenelle is seeking sympathy, as she so often does, but her plans backfired when fans encouraged her to reflect on the decisions she made that led to these circumstances.
"After losing everything because of your psycho hubby, was it worth it?," one follower asked on Instagram.
Now, Jenelle is 100 percent incapable of being honest, even with herself.
So rather than admit that she made some wrong turns that led her to lose her cushy, mid-six figure job, she insisted that her life is actually better than ever.
"I didn't lose anything, my family has found peace," Evans replied, adding:
"If you knew him, you'd probably like him too."
Now, these comments are downright bizarre for a number of reasons.
For one thing, Evans is completely reliant on her meager TikTok income these days, and she JUST admitted that she's despondent over her lack of career prospects.
Yet, she claims that she's finally "found peace" as a result of getting sh-tcanned from the only job she's ever had?
Also, Evans' continued insistence that David is a likable guy doesn't appear to be fooling anyone.
After all, much of the reason that David is so widely hated is all the horrible things that Jenelle has revealed about him over the years.
Remember when Jenelle claimed that David broke her collarbone during a drunken argument?
How about when she told a family court judge that her kids live in constant fear of the guy?
These aren't "he forgets to put the toilet seat down" caliber complaints.
Both Jenelle and MTV spent years establishing David's monstrous tendencies, and it's clear to anyone who has followed her story that he's the reason she's in such desperate financial straits.
So despite Jenelle's claims that he's the most charismatic husband this side of the Mississippi, we're pretty sure that the "liking David" ship has sailed a long, long time ago.
Bebe Rexha has been pretty quiet on social media lately after dropping her much anticipated new album called Better Mistakes.

Being on Teen Mom seems like a pretty sweet gig, right?
Sure, there are drawbacks -- you don't get as much privacy as the average person, and thousands of strangers scrutinize your every move.
But you also get hundreds of thousands of dollars per season just to let people film and edit footage of you living your life, so that's got to be fun.
Most of the moms on the show have gotten comfortable with this whole setup.
They've grown accustomed to the lifestyle that their large salaries provide them, they've gotten used to being filmed all the time, and it works fine for everyone.
But then you have Jenelle Evans, a person who somehow became too messy for reality television and lost her job.
Realistically, she's never going to land a job like that again, one that pays so much just for allowing her life to be filmed.
And so as we've seen for the past couple of years, she's stuck in kind of a weird place of trying to get a similar job, trying to become an influencer, really just trying to earn money without getting a traditional job.
Which is fine, of course, you've got to do what you've got to do and any traditional job she'd be qualified for wouldn't pay nearly as much as the salary she's used to earning.
But considering all of this, you'd think that if she was given the opportunity to come back to MTV, she'd jump at it faster than she chased Kieffer in those flip flops, right?
Well, apparently you'd be wrong.
As we've discussed, MTV is currently filming a Teen Mom spinoff in California -- moms from each of the shows are coming together for a retreat.
It's been very dramatic so far, especially since Farrah Abraham made a big return and kicked off a big ol' brawl.
Then yesterday Jenelle posted a video on TikTok of herself looking extremely broody and lip syncing to an audio that said "And now my guard is back up. I trust no one."
She captioned it "When they invite you to a Teen Mom Special in CA then no response for a month ..." and she also wrote "I feeling sh-tty AF" with the hashtags "mental health awareness," "anxiety," and "confused."
So it sounds like she was originally going to make an appearance on the spinoff as well, but MTV dropped the idea without telling her.
But according to a new report from The Ashley's Reality Roundup, which is typically about one billion percent more reliable than Jenelle, that's not exactly how things went down.
A source from production spoke with the site and explained that "Jenelle was contacted by [a producer], who told her about the spinoff but she was not invited and then ghosted like she's saying."
"Basically, she received the call and once they started talking to Jenelle about possibly doing it, they realize it was the same old Jenelle bullsh-t and dropped the idea so fast."
Yeah, that sounds more like it.
"Honestly," the source continued, "they were just playing with the idea of bringing her in to add shock value to the show because they knew people would freak out if they saw her. That's all."
"They weren't trying to get her back on the cast or anything like that."
So how exactly did she manage to screw this up?
You'll never believe it, but "Jenelle told them that she would not travel without David, and she insisted that he stay at a place nearby, since they said there was absolutely no way he was allowed at the filming location."
"She even tried to offer different options to production to try to get David to go, but as soon as they heard the word 'David,' [the producer] bailed and started ignoring her."
The source also said that "Since she was fired, Jenelle has randomly texted [a producer] saying she had 'new ideas' for filming, but they have always been ignored."
"This spinoff was being run by a different producer, but this whole incident kind of made them realize that nothing has really changed with Jenelle's situation and they have no desire to dip back into that mess."
And what a mess it is.
How goofy is it that she tried so hard to get David involved when she knows good and well that he's the entire reason she was fired in the first place?
If she had actually left him for good back when she moved to Nashville, it seems like there's a solid chance she could have been back on the show by now, and even if she could just function without him glued to her side she could have gotten at least this one paycheck.
But, once again, she's allowing David to ruin her life, because ... well, who really knows why she's so desperate to keep him?
It's hard to imagine another opportunity like this will come her way now, so, uh, good luck with YouTube or whatever.
