Reuters: Apple, Google CEOs trying to bury patent hatchet

In the wake of Apple’s billion-dollar patent win over Samsung, the iPad maker’s CEO, Tim Cook, has spoken several times with Google CEO Larry Page about the companies’ ongoing intellectual-property dispute, Reuters reported Thursday.

The discussions, which also involve lower-level employees, are reportedly aimed at resolving the tech giants’ dispute.

One possible scenario under consideration could be a truce involving disputes over basic features and functions in Google’s Android mobile software, one source said. But it’s unclear whether Page and Cook are discussing a broad settlement of the various disputes between the two companies – most of which involve the burgeoning mobile computing area – or are focused on a more limited set of issues.
