The world is in crisis tonight as the ongoing conflict between Apple Corp and Samsung escalated today. Reports are still sketchy, but we have confirmed that multiple nuclear detonations occurred at various facilities owned by both companies all over the globe. Casualty reports are in the tens of thousands. It is unclear who struck first or what led to this deadly escalation, but this event marks only the second time in history that corporate competition has led to a nuclear confrontation.
Analysts have downgraded the profit outlook of both companies, as the coming months are expected to be a scramble to for each to consolidate it's gains. World indexing giant Google has yet to weigh in on any side of the dispute, but smaller firms have been quick to declare allegiances amidst the threat of reprisals. The US Congress has joined an emergency session to discuss the matter, but little is expected of it as the voting gridlock enter its second decade just this year...
NewsMediaCorp WAR UPDATE wrote:
Heavy fighting continues between the Apple and Samsung megacorporations in the wake of the limited scale nuclear exchange amongst their main campuses almost a week ago. Corporate mercenaries of both factions have been sighted exchanging fire in cities across the globe, and the number of employee disappearances and unexplained deaths continues to grow.
Several governments have issued strong denouncements of the behavior, with a rare proclamation by the US senate that the use of nuclear weapons "does not represent the best interests of a free market". A number of pro-business groups have issues strong rebuttals, noting that so far the casualties of the limited nuclear warfare have solely been employees of both companies. Nonetheless, government military forces are being held at an unprecedented level of mobilization in response and anger amongst the general public continues to grow.

In a move not seen in several decades, the French government has moved to curb inter-corp violence between the Apple and Samsung megacorporations. The French government announced a joint venture with the United Kingdom to forcibly seperate the warring parties from pubic contact. In a move criticized as draconian, armed forces will be engaged to escort Apple and Samsung employees around the two countries in any transit.

agreed, some knowledge is helpful. Also, my assasin agents had machine guns and drones. Do the drones fight directly? If not, how do they affect combat?

Before we get too far into it this quarter:
1. Can we have a description of what our facilities are doing for us and how they relate to each other? ie. What do Dormatories do? What does Manufacturing do? What does the Hazardous Labs and other facilities do if we decide to build them?
We were under the assumption that Dormatories increase security personel at buildings.
2. Same goes for the research that we have done. What does it do for us?
With future research, I don't expect a concrete answer, but can we get a quick blurb about where it might lead to?
