+ - Forget thermonuclear: Cook would rather settle->

Submitted by
nk497 writes "Steve Jobs famously said he would go "thermonuclear" on Android, complaining the rival OS copies iOS — but his successor as CEO doesn't seem as keen on court, with Tim Cook saying he's always "hated litigation".

"We just want people to invent their own stuff. If we could get an arrangement where we can be assured that's the case, and that a fair settlement on stuff that's occurred, I would highly prefer to settle versus battle," he said in a call with investors, after Apple announced quarterly profit of $11.6bn, adding the company can't be the "developer for the world". His comments come as a US judge recently told Apple and Samsung to sit down and sort out their dispute — could the global patent fight between the two firms actually come to an end in a sensible way?"
