Samsung and Apple to meet on May 21st and May 22nd

According to Foss Patents, both sides are currently facing off in 10 countries and while the idea of settlement talks sounds good, the odds are that neither side will talk candidly about how secure they feel about their case in front of a Judge and the opposition. It would be great if both tech titans could just bury the hatchet, but if one side doesn't decide to take a giant leap forward, we wouldn't bet on it happening. Ironically, Samsung remains a major source of parts for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad, such as the A5 and A5X processors respectively, which makes you wonder how that part of the relationship continues to blossom.

They aren't getting married. Not even divorced. This is more like couples counseling. The settlement talks are non-binding. It is a requirement of the litigation process. Before trial, there is a settlement/mediation exercise that both parties are obligated to attend. Sometimes a breakthrough occurs, which may happen given Tim Cook's professed aversion to litigate. Tick-tock, tick-tock.
