Tesla co-founders settle nasty legal battle. Lovefest ensues

Get a room, you two.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Martin Eberhard, two of the co-founders of the electric car startup, have kissed and made up in a mutual love-fest, ending a bitter legal battle over the company's origins.

Eberhard, a former Tesla CEO, had sued the company in May, charging Musk with defaming him and machinating to have him bounced from the company. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, and a Tesla spokesperson said "we are not disclosing details."
