GOOG CEO departs from AAPL Board

From Bloomberg:

Google Inc. Chief Executive Officer Eric Schmidt is resigning from Apple Inc.’s board, aiming to quell antitrust concerns about intensifying competition between the two companies.

People must have seen it coming.  Google helped create Android, a software that runs on mobile phones and a possibly strong competitor of Apple’s iPhone later on.  Then Apple last week rejected Google Voice, which allows users to make free phone calls (yes, just like Skype).  But there IS a Skype app for iPhone, isn’t there? Interesting.
