Google's Schmidt Quits Apple Board
The chief executive of Google, Eric Schmidt, has resigned his seat on Apple's board of directors, citing potential conflicts of interest.
The move was mutually agreed upon by the two parties, according to a statement issued by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. The company cited Google's recent announcement that they are developing a desktop operating system which will compete with, among others, Apple's Mac OS. The companies are already competitors in the mobile-phone software business.
The FCC is also reportedly looking into Apple's recent banishment of a Google Voice application from its App Store.
