1) So I guess Larry Page can talk again?
2) I find it hard to believe that Tim Cook would go against one of the last wishes of Steve Jobs and settle with Google on Android. BUT, maybe he feels the Samsung victory was big enough and powerful enough to send the message Apple intended to send. It was a huge win, no question.
Still, I imagine any settlement would be more likely to include provisions (in writing) that Google will no longer copy Apple’s IP rather than any sort of licensing agreement. But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe both sides are tired of fighting and are willing to simply give peace a chance.
