Samsung sensibly decided to use its flashy CES 2017 event as an opportunity to try to build some bridges with pretty much the entire world, with the company once again forcing Tim Baxter to put on his saddest face and tell everyone that he didn’t mean for the Note 7 to explode, before banging on about a load of souped-up tellies and fridges nobody can afford.
