Thanks! Interesting item: "Before joining Sun in 1983, he was a member of the research staff at the Computer Science Lab at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC)..."

Steve Jobs made the case to Xerox PARC execs directly that they had great technology but that Apple knew how to make it affordable enough to change the world. This was very open. In the end, Xerox got a large block of Apple stock for sharing the technology. That’s not stealing outright.

So Schmidt is in. No wonder Jobs has been talking up Google lately.

But who is off Apple's board now, if anyone?
