Schmidt Says He Couldn't Stand Being on Apple's Board

Eric Schmidt says he "couldn't stand being on Apple's board." You know, because they force people to stay on the board against their will. roll eyes (sarcastic)

He also divulged that he "couldn’t stand" being on Apple’s board of directors while he was a part of it, a group which consists of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, Genentech CEO Art Levinson, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, and others. Schmidt’s remark offers the first instance of first-hand insight into the ostensibly awkward period in which Google’s then-CEO was also sitting on Apple’s board, at a time when Apple was launching the iPhone while Google was secretly prepping its competing Android OS.
