Google’s CEO Joins Apple’s Board of Directors

By on August 30, 2006

At yesterday’s meeting of Apple’s board of directors, Dr. Eric Schmidt, chief executive officer of Google, was elected to the board. Link.

Schmidt joins the uber-elite crew of Bill Campbell, Chairman and former CEO of Intuit Corp., Millard Drexler, Chairman and CEO of J. Crew, Albert Gore Jr., Former Vice President of the United States, Steve Jobs, the Man, Arthur D. Levinson, Ph. D., Chairman and CEO, Genentech, and Jerry York, Chairman, President and CEO of Harwinton Capital.

Guess that makes it official; Apple, with the help of Google, is out to rule the world. (cue cackling maniacal laughter.)
