Google CEO Won't Quit From Apple Board [news.bbc.co.uk]
Google CEO Eric Schmidt says he will not resign his Apple board position despite a government inquiry.

The Federal Trade Commission is looking at a possible breach of antitrust laws given Mr Schmidt's directorships at Google and Apple.

But Mr Schmidt told reporters: "If there are issues on competitiveness, I recuse myself." He also said that it is well established that he leaves the boardroom whenever the discussion has anything to do with the iPhone.

When asked if he had considered resigning given the recent FTC interest, Mr Schmidt replied "it hasn't crossed my mind."
