Sources are saying that Samsung’s executive Vice President David Eun was on the Asiana Airlines Boeing  777-200 when it crash landed in San Francisco last Saturday. Samsung is the maker of the Galaxy S III, which became the first individual smartphone in 5 years to out-sell the iPhone in 2012. They also manufacture it’s successor, the Galaxy S4, which a lot of consumers consider 2013’s best Android smartphone. They also market the incredibly successful Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab lines, and they built the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus smartphones, as well the Nexus 10 for Google’s Nexus line of products.

As of 11:41 AM Saturday morning, two people had been confirmed dead and 61 were injured to the point of being unable to walk. 13 of them had to be transported to nearby hospitals. it doesn’t seem the Eun was one of them, however.

He tweeted: “I just crash landed at SFO. Tail ripped off. Most everyone seems fine. I’m ok. Surreal…” on Saturday.

Everyone isn’t okay, however. You can read up more on the crash here: KTVU and stick here with AJQI for further updates.

Justin Howell has been a journalist and a YouTuber since April of 2012. His fascination with politics, science and tech started in September of 2011, when he joined Google+, which had virtually no content unrelated to technology at the time. While doing research on what would become his first Android device, the Nook Wi-Fi, he was inspired by the video reviews he saw on YouTube to do a review on it. On April 27th, 2012, he posted his first YouTube video... which was also his first piece of journalism. He posted several videos after that, which have since been lost, before taking a break to finish the sixth grade. He came back during the summer of 2012 (and hasn't taken any long-term breaks since), this time doing a variety of different videos rather than focusing on one topic. By the winter of 2012-2013, he had switched back to mainly doing tech however, with the occasional gaming video. He filtered out all content unrelated to technology by the summer of 2013. On May 27th, 2013, he published his first full-length article to blogger, a comparison between the Galaxy S4 and HTC One. Since then he's written six articles. His YouTube channel is climbing in popularity at a very slow yet relatively steady rate. At the moment he has 313 subscribers and 115,874 views, and is aiming for 15,000 subscribers by summer 2016. You can help him by going to watching some of his videos, and subscribing.
