iPhone News: Google – Apple Divorce

Info World: “Google’s Eric Schmidt has given up his seat on Apple’s board of directors, closing a partnership that paved the way for the success of Apple and Google in the mobile space. Neither company could have risen so far, so fast without the other. Apple made the Google Maps pushpin and the YouTube skateboarding dog iconic of the iPhone’s utility, simplicity, and flexibility; the iPhone was, in effect, the first Google phone.

Google Maps and YouTube, with Safari, rounded out the iPhone’s killer app trifecta. That Apple gave Google equal billing was unprecedented, and I think that relationship set Google up for its current role as go-to software supplier for handset makers and wireless operators, which in turn enabled Google to move into the mobile cloud business with Gmail, Google Talk, Google Sync, Google Voice and voice search, Google Latitude, and other services.”
