Samsung executive fixed pricing for chips in Apple computers

A Samsung executive will pay a quarter-million dollar fine and serve almost a year in prison after pleading guilty to memory chip price fixing. He violated the Sherman Antitrust Act when Samsung colluded with other companies to fix DRAM chip prices. Four other memory makers have been charged as well. The memory sales in question date back almost five years and were used in Apple, HP and Gateway computers.
