Apple and Samsung meet in court. Cue the Morricone music.


Today, Tim Cook and Choi Gee-sung, CEOs of Apple and Samsung, will meet in a court in San Francisco. A federal judge is bringing them together to see if there’s a way to settle the patent dispute that has been dragging on between the companies. Apple has said it wants other companies, including Samsung, to make products that don’t look or behave like the iPhone. The two companies have been battling this out across 9 countries and 47 lawsuits.  And while Apple and Samsung are competitors, Apple needs Samsung - the Korean company helps Apple make parts for the iPhone and the iPad. So, will they settle? Maybe? Maybe not?
