Apple CEO Steve Jobs and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently had a face-to-face meeting, according to a new report. Citing an anonymous tipster that spotted the pair walking around their home neighborhood of Palo Alto, the Los Angeles Times reports that Jobs invited Zuckerberg for dinner at his house to talk about Apple’s newly-launched social music network, Ping. Apple and Facebook were reportedly in talks over the service and its integration with Facebook for over a year, but the companies failed to reach an agreement, and Facebook blocked Apple’s access to the Facebook Connect integration service shortly after Ping’s launch. Still, Facebook CTO Bret Taylor recently said that he was “very confident” the two companies would reach an agreement.
