Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO said "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 excuse 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."
Apple iPhone and Google Android
Schmidt has been under increasing pressure to make a move as it became clear Google was going to go toe-to-toe with Apple.
