Apple and Samsung will meet to negotiate a cease-fire

On the upshot, this will be more than just a cursory meeting – Apple CEO Tim Cook and Samsung CEO Gee-Sung Choi will be at the meeting (along with the usual legal retinue), participating in a Magistrate Judge Settlement Conference overseen by Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero. If either side is eager to go to court it will be easy enough to not come to an agreement, but has we’ve seen Tim Cook has a more restrained approach to patent litigation that Steve Jobs did, so this opportunity might also provide the two CEOs with the necessary face time to work out a deal.
Of course similar efforts have failed in the past. Will this attempt be one more speed-bump on the way to eternal litigation, or could this event help usher in the beginning of the end of the mobile patent wars? That may seem like a tall order, but a settlement in any of the ongoing international lawsuits could serve as a template for others to copy, so it’s a hope worth clinging to. We’ll find out sometime in the next 90 days.

APPLE needs to DROP it's LAW SUIT PERNAMENTLY and learn to compete with others which I highly doubt they will.

It's not just one sided man. There's two sides to every situation. They both have faults in the situation.
