Apple has announced that Dr. Eric Schimdt, CEO of Google, is resigning from Apple’s Board of Directors, on which he has served since 2006. “Eric has been an excellent Board member for Apple, investing his valuable time, talent, passion and wisdom to help make Apple successful,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Unfortunately, as Google enters more of Apple’s core businesses, with Android and now Chrome OS, Eric’s effectiveness as an Apple Board member will be significantly diminished, since he will have to recuse himself from even larger portions of our meetings due to potential conflicts of interest. Therefore, we have mutually decided that now is the right time for Eric to resign his position on Apple’s Board.”

This was inevitable, although I wonder just how closely related this is to the new FCC investigations into app rejections spurred by Apple turning down the Google Voice app.
