Google CEO Eric Schmidt Joins Apple’s Board of Directors


“Eric is obviously doing a terrific job as CEO of Google, and we look forward to his contributions as a member of Apple’s board of directors,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Like Apple, Google is very focused on innovation and we think Eric’s insights and experience will be very valuable in helping to guide Apple in the years ahead.”

Unlike Microsoft, Apple clearly doesn’t consider Google a competitor.

Let’s hope this leads to Google producing better Mac desktop software.
