    Samsung CEO resigns

    Today Samsung shares hit an all-time high. Today Samsung forecast a record-high third-quarter operating profit. So what did the Samsung CEO do today? He announced his resignation. Huh???

    Here are more details of Samsung's third-quarter operating profit, which is up 179% from quarter 3 of last year. Of course profits in Q3 2017 had to be a big improvement over Q3 2016, when Samsung suspended sales of the Galaxy Note 7, many of which were exploding.

    Samsung's CEO resigned last month. Now I suspect he knew this tax-evasion investigation was imminent:

    "Yes, we know you bought a new Galaxy phone this year -- but now you'll have to buy a newer one next year.....and again in 2019.....and 2020.....and....."

    Samsung will reportedly unveil its new Galaxy S9 smartphone in February

    Samsung's flagship store in New York City lets visitors try out laptops, tablets, phones and televisions. There is a DJ playing music. There are concerts. There are virtual reality rides. There is very little inventory for sale. And this is the "future of retail"? How does the store make any money?

    Samsung's vision for the future of retail is a store that doesn't try to sell you anything
