Apple vs Samsung - Rock em Sock em Robots

On the eve of court-mandated talks between Apple and Samsung, the Korean manufacturer offers a glimmer of hope.

Under orders from Judge Lucy Koh from the Northern District of California, the two companies are to spend Monday and Tuesday of this week in discussions in hopes of resolving the numerous patent suits that are pending between them.  As he prepared to depart for the United States, Samsung Electronics’ mobile division chief JK Shin stopped to speak with reporters at Seoul’s airport according to Reuters.  “There is still a big gap in the patent war with Apple but we still have several negotiation options including cross-licensing,” Shin said.

Samsung CEO Choi Gee-sung and Apple CEO Tim Cook will meet at 9:30 AM local time tomorrow in a San Francisco court to begin their talks that will be overseen by Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero.
