Apple plunks $100M into Samsung

In a move to ensure its supply of TFT displays for the iBook and other products, Apple Computer will invest $100 million in Samsung Semiconductor.

“With our new iBook and fast selling PowerBooks, Apple will need more flat displays than ever going forward,” Steve Jobs, Apple’s interim CEO, said in a statement.
