Tim Cook said to have met with Samsung execs to discuss patents
We know what you're thinking - this legal conflict between Apple and Samsung is never going to end. Although you might be right, we really hope that both parties will be able to settle their differences soon and get back to innovating their line-ups. What leads us to this thought is the news that Judge Lucy Koh has ordered Apple's and Samsung's executives to meet and discuss the possibility of meditation.

According to The Korea Times, this meeting has already happened between Apple's Tim Cook and Samsung's Choi Gee-sung and Shin Jong-kyun on July 16. Unfortunately, it isn't known if the execs have reached any consensus. However, the source does mention that people familiar with the matter claim that Samsung still views Apple as a valuable business partner.

Business partners or not, patent lawsuits have long become part of the daily grind for both Cupertino and Seoul. The U.S. trial between Apple and Samsung is set to begin on July 30, so let's hope it'll be quickly resolved thanks to that precursory high-level meeting.

It's on sale through the play store. To my knowledge, VZW never stopped selling it.

No one ever stopped selling it. The Play Store said "coming soon" for a few days, maybe less. That's all that happened.

Apple have no rights to ban Samsung products no matter what the Patent Wars are all about.

This of course not about the patents, it's about market share and this is just Apple's tactics to soften public discontent over the iTROLL's behaviour.

If you know anything about Tim Cook, you'll know Judge Koh is not his type.

At this point its so obvious that Apple has no interest in working things out or getting back to innovation. I don't have to work with Samsung Apple or the lawyers to know that Apples action are petty and pathetic that's obvious!
