Apple, Samsung Agree to Settlement Talks

A new and interesting development in Apple’s pitched patent battle with Samsung. The two sides have agreed to moderated settlement talks. According to a court filing today, within the next 90 days Apple CEO Tim Cook and Samsung CEO Gee-Sung Choi will participate in a settlement conference that will be overseen by U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero.

Of course, participation in such discussions is in no way indicative of a pending resolution. As Oracle and Google have shown us, these things can pretty quickly head south, ending in a brutal courtroom battle.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
