court ordered Apple Demigod Tim Cook to meet high-ranking Samsung execs and discuss terms of surrender
the global patent wrangle between the two tech giants.
US District Judge Lucy Koh instructed Cook to meet Samsung executives Choi Gee-sung and Shin Jong-kyun on earlier this week, on July 16, but little is known about the peace talks. The execs already met two months ago and Samsung COO Lee Jay-jong apparently scheduled talks with Cook earlier this month.
However the talks were apparently more than just diplomatically cordial. Despite their differences Samsung and Apple are in bed together and Samsung is a major supplier of components for Apple devices. In 2012 alone, Samsung shipped $7.8 billion worth of gear to Apple.
Apple and Samsung are due back in court next week and it is unlikely the talks managed to resolve much.
