Google Chief Joins the Board of Apple - New York Times

imho Google should have recruited a former high-level Microsoft exec to its board, e.g., Bob Herbold, if it's serious about competing with Microsoft (and about having adult supervision). 

The announcement signals closer professional ties between Apple’s chief executive, Steven P. Jobs, and Mr. Schmidt, who oversaw Google’s rise to become the most-used Internet search engine. Before Novell, Mr. Schmidt was chief technology officer at Sun Microsystems.

Other Apple directors include Mr. Jobs; former Vice President Al Gore; Arthur Levinson, chief executive of Genentech; and Mickey Drexler, chief executive of the J. Crew Group.
