Jobs and Schmidt spotted together in Palo Alto

If these pictures obtained by Gizmodo are any indication, it appears that the icy relationship between Eric Schmidt and Steve Jobs that the New York Times reported on a few weeks ago is thawing. The two were spotted chatting away in Palo Alto today outside a cafe According to the Gizmodo tipster, two lines uttered by Jobs during the encounter were, "They're going to see it all eventually so who cares how they get it” and "Let's go discuss this somewhere more private" – presumably after the mob started closing in with cameras in hand.

There also appears to be an iPad laying on the table while the two were talking, so Jobs can't be too terribly upset with Schmidt. Or perhaps Schmidt is just begging for his life before Jobs does the flashy thing on him.

Ofcourse they were discussing Andriod & Google Nexus One smartphone (Apple's patent infringement suit against HTC).

The two could be discussing an out of court settlement,namely the technical side of it.

After thats figured out they leave the rest to the C.F.Os & the legal advisors to close the deal.

Remember Eric Schmidt is not only Google's CEO he is also an Apple (substantial) shareholder.

So with that in mind,both obviously prefer (the sensible/practical approach) to talk it out(informal at a coffee shop) rather than fight it out in courts.
