I have already read through many answers about "as" here on ELL. But I am not sure about the below.
I guess "as" in the below sentence implies that there is relationship of happening at the same time between the two things. What bothers me is if there is also any subtle, hidden relationships other than that.
Samsung snaps up AI startup Viv as Note 7 smokes out a Southwest Air flight.
To speak clearly, I wonder whether there is any connection other than the time relationship of the two happening at the same time between the event written before "as" and the event written after "as".
Thank you, very much.
