It looks like tension between Google & Apple is growing. Few days ago, Google CEO, Mr. Eric Schmidt resigned from Apple's board. This news is followed by recent news that Genentech chairman Arthur D. Levinson is resigning from Google’s Board of Directors.

Its important to note that with this depart, there aren't any connections between Google & Apple at director level.

What say you? Posted in: #Gadgets

I believe Mr. Eric Schmidt resigned due to conflict of interest. Google is stepping in the mobile device business, so this was bound to happen, sooner or later. Also, by taking out an OS, google is competing with Apple's OS directly.
