Samsung's JK Shin claims
"There is still a big gap in the patent war with Apple but we still have several negotiation options including cross-licensing," said Samsung Electronics chief JK Shin to reporters before boarding a plane for the United States.

He was accompanying another Samsung exec - Choi Gee-sung - who will have to sit down with Apple's CEO Tim Cook today, so they try and iron out the differences on the way to squeeze a cross-licensing out of the patent war between the two companies that has been waging since last year.

JK Shin also said that the shortages of modern 4G chips that go into the latest smartphones are likely to continue until October, just as Qualcomm, which makes the bulk of those, predicted at its quarterly earning call not long ago.

I think a best case scenario here is Samsung owns up to what they've done, pays damages to Apple and agrees to start making their own products. Samsung makes too much money to just copy. They can invest some of that profit into making unique products.

Then the lawsuits can stop as well. Samsung needs to compete with innovation, not copying.

and Apple should just suck it up that there are other companies out there who can and will steal their ideas and the only way to get rid of them would be to innovate and create better products. Which Apple obviously can't do because they weren't friggin innovative in the first place.

Get you head out of your @$$, taco...
