Legal "The widely anticipated two-day meeting between chief executives of Samsung and Apple yielded no agreement between the parties mired in a hot legal dispute over copyright infringements." Why end fruitless litigation and spend that money on improving products or, I don't know, charity, when you could throw money at lawyers instead, to the benefit of absolutely no one? These lawsuits are Jobs' blemish on the company, but Apple can't back out now for fear of losing face, even though Cook has indicated he really wants to. Petty.

Why must it be assumed Apple is the one refusing to back down given that two companies failed at negotiating. Why would Cook lose face at all? Why can't it be Samsung being unreasonable.

Because Samsung has a history of properly signing deals like this and cross-licensing. Apple does not. On top of that, Apple is the one who attacked, so they have the most to lose.
