Today, Eric Schmidt had enough and finally decides to split the Apple side as Board of Directors. Apple & Google are part of an investigation by the FCC as they starting to rival. The recent attempt from Google to include an iphone App “Google Voice” was unsuccessful as Apple cited different policies that blocked the Apps from being included in the Apple store. This has frustrated Google as Microsoft launches business strategies to undercut Google fans with Bing.com, a new word processing apps similar to Google Docs added value features, and the deal with Yahoo which includes advertising & more search engine help. Not only is Google mad, but the FCC has decided to investigate the matter. Currently, the FCC analyzes links between the Apple Corp and AT&T company, as they appear to be tight knit as their history should make them close friends… but was it enough to block Google from stepping into their territory with “Google Voice”. As the resignations, new product releases, & strategies behind them flare up, something is cooking up… and the FCC is the food inspector! lol We’ll see if the company’s clean it up and bring the heavy competition growing into the end of 2009.
