Apple & Google CEOs seen sitting together talking business

Apple & Google CEOs seen sitting together talking business
We've seen our fair share of the war going on between Apple and Google as both companies seemingly compete in the same mobile space. Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt looked to set aside their differences as they were spotted sitting down at a cafe in the Town and Country shopping center in Palo Alto. One would think that these top CEOs would choose a more reclusive scene to hold such talks, but it looks like sitting down in a cafe owned and operated by former Google chief Charlie Ayers was a decent place. Unfortunately for them, their faces looked familiar by one person who managed to take some shots before a larger crowd gathered upon them and ultimately forced them to move elsewhere. The Gizmodo tipster that was close by heard, “They're going to see it all eventually so who cares how they get it.” Even though there was no concrete information being gathered during their short meeting, it makes you wonder what kind of ties these two companies have with each other.

One thing missing...hmm, oh yeah, the iFans are missing! I thought they'd be in the picture licking the dirt off Steve's shoes. This could be like the epic movies, where the leaders meet at the battle field before the real war starts. Now lets see what Android and Apple throw at each other now.

They're probably friends outside of work and went out for some coffee.. Could you imagine everytime you went into public someone started taking pictures of you and listening to your conversation.

Just the two of them? No other advisors or lawyer types. Might show the scary power each of them has to be able to meet alone and probably discuss big things.
