Schmidt quits Apple

(By Richard Holway 2.00pm 3rd August 09) Knowing how many readers are also keen Apple followers, it has just been announced that Eric Schmidt (CEO of Google) has just resigned from the board. See AFP - Google CEO Schmidt quits Apple board.

This seemed to me an inevitable outcome when Apple rejected Google's request to carry Google Voice on its Apps Store. Not only that, but Google is more and more encroaching on Apple's turf with its operating systems, apps, mobile phone systems etc. I'm sure Schmidt is not short of NED offers - although few come as exciting as a seat on Apple's board.
