Are Apple and Samsung making Nice?

A story this morning mentioned that Apple will be producing their A5 iPhone CPU in a new factory in Texas.  This would not normally raise any eyebrows outside of the fact that Samsung is the company running the factory. This would generally lead people to believe that Apple and Samsung had settled their differences.  This, however, is not the case.

The court cases are still on and the South Korean company is merely a supplier who has contracts with Apple to provide the CPU’s as well as NAND flash memory chips.   The new factory was built in Austin Texas at a cost of $3.6 Billion USD.   The factory will provides about 1100 jobs to the Austin area.
