Samsung And Apple Being Forced Into Settlement Talks

The lawsuit saga between Apple and Samsung may finally be coming to a close, at least in the US. As many may recall, Apple kicked things off by suing Samsung last year over the Galaxy line of phones and tablets. Our pals at Samsung weren’t going to let that go, and in return hit right back with a countersuit. The battles have been going on all over the world for the past year, with wins on both sides.

Just like any war, more than one battle needs to be won for final victory. The United States’ judicial system is taking a different stance, however, and has forced Samsung and Apple to talk out a settlement. Both Apple CEO Tim Cook and Samsung’s Choi Gee-sung will be in attendance, along with counsels from each side to assist in the talks.

Considering that Samsung produces, uh, I don’t know, some of the most critical components in both Apple’s iPhone and iPad, I have a strong feeling that the talks may be in Samsung’s favor. The settlement will take place in San Francisco, with a local judge in attendance. How do you feel the talks will turn out? Is it time that all the lawsuits just end?
