Two of my most favorite companies, Apple and Google are now a bit more intimate. Apple and Google announced that Eric Schmidt, Google's CEO, has agreed to join Apple's Board of Directors.

“Eric is obviously doing a terrific job as CEO of Google, and we look forward to his contributions as a member of Apple’s board of directors,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Like Apple, Google is very focused on innovation and we think Eric’s insights and experience will be very valuable in helping to guide Apple in the years ahead.”

“Apple is one of the companies in the world that I most admire,” said Eric Schmidt. “I'm really looking forward to working with Steve and Apple’s board to help with all of the amazing things Apple is doing.”

People in the forums are both joking around and discussing the move from a futuristic perspective.

Maybe we'll get iAdsense accounts that run out of their CPC value and can't be restored without sending it back to GoogleApple HQ for a disablement of ismartpricing.

Maybe they'll add Google to Sherlock now
Well, it is now named Spotlight and not sherlock...

so what if Google buys Apple? that would turn microsoft upside down I think.
