Yeah. Apple doesn't want to go against the Almighty Goog. Apple knows that EVERYONE uses Google, so even in corrupt courts with a misinformed jury, the odds would NOT be in their favor.

That was awesome.
I wish it to be true, but hey, I think Google would've done such thing long ago.
Also, Cook did said he hates legislation.

yea, he said that. words are worthless. Since he's been at the helm, lawsuits have gone up, not down. I believe he's also one that "offered" the $40 per phone patent for rectangles to keep out of the courts.

Goog has a rep of being a much more open company. I suspect they've reached out to Apple many a times and gotten their hand slapped each time.

Yeah Giggle is giggling. They know the only real hit Sammy took was on a look alike design which is 100% bs.. Might I direct you to every Fn tv in any store which sells tvs. I dare you to put 10, 42" tvs side by side and you'll maybe get 50% right just by guessing, because they all look alike. Apple came in with a BS Bestbuy survey which said that customers were returning various apple/sammy products because they thought they bought the other.. Its the CUSTOMER who is at fault along with worst buy who didn't listen to the customers..
. So what Apple did was won on stupid pidly OLD designs on software and a rectangle all of which are now outdated, except still in use by Apple. Apple is 100% afraid of Google. Why else would Apple only go after Sammy? If there is "infringement" as Apple claims, why not go after the true source, Android? Hmmm Apple can't stand on its own merits anymore. They only have a 4 inch screen coming out now and thats old and outdated already.. But yeah, Apple is on the foreskin front of the smartphone movement

Good to see that Google is stepping up and trying to resolve the patent lawsuits, considering it is mostly Android devices and Android features that are in the cross hairs of Apple.

You guys do realize if they were to go into court and go into everything, the only ones that are hurt is us the consumers....so this is actually really good for every consumer out there.

Business is not a video game.

Why would Apple even contemplate talks with Google when Apple is the original innovator?

They have nothing to worry about right????

Apple should be punched first.
They must understand that court is not the place for technology.

Not only should the pending Notification Bar patent be considered here, but the current Motorola suit against Apple as well; I'm guessing Apple might be feeling some pressure and that's why they're willing to talk.
Plus, I'm sure Larry Page wanted to congratulate Apple on their "legal" victory... and maybe make a small mention of what might happen if Samsung is vindicated on appeal and some of Apple's IP is invalidated. You know, just to give Timmy something to think about.

The lawyers must be very worried.
