Two days ago, I wrote an article based on a piece in the Wall Street Journal about how personal the legal battles between Apple and Qualcomm had gotten. The primary point was how little connection and commonality there was between CEOs Tim Cook and Steve Mollenkopf and that because of that, how remote the possibility of a quick settlement seemed.
Apple and Qualcomm have been battling through motions, injunctions and trade disputes across the globe, but their big trial finally begins this week in San Diego. The Wall Street Journal ran a great piece yesterday that gets into some of the background of the fight between these two tech giants. More importantly, it touches on the disconnect between their two leaders, Steve Mollenkopf and Tim Cook.
