Samsung to bloggers: Promote our products at IFA or walk home
Memo to bloggers: If Samsung offers to fly you to an event, make sure you have your own return-trip ticket.
According to a detailed story in The Next Web, some time back Samsung reportedly reached out to some mobile-tech bloggers in India and offered to fly them to the IFA 2012 conference now underway in Berlin. One of the bloggers — Clinton Jeff of New Delhi — said he made clear that he would only attend the conference as a reporter, and that he would not be doing any promotional work for the company. Samsung reportedly had no issues with that.
