Larry Page, Tim Cook Discussing Patent Issues Together

Take ten paces, turn and fire. That would be one way to solve the differences, but civil discussion between two of the world’s most powerful CEO’s is a good alternative. The two CEO’s have been having casual chats over the patent situation and actually could talk out a mutual agreement between the two, saving both companies lots of time, trouble and a whole boatload of legal fees.

Truce? That’s a far cry from the "thermonuclear" approach that the late Steve Jobs prescribed, but it’s not entirely a shock to see the word bandied about آ— I’m sure neither company is afraid of pulling the legal trigger should it prove necessary, but words can sometimes settle issues in a way that pure legal might can’t.
