It may be because of the Chrome OS or Android but whatever reason it was, it was best for both company.
“Eric has been an excellent Board member for Apple, investing his valuable time, talent, passion and wisdom to help make Apple successful,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs said in the release. “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.”
Things may shake up a little once Chrome OS has been released to the market, which will be against two big software/hardware company, namely Microsoft and Apple.
Atleast.. their straight forward on my Eric resigned!!!
