Apple Computer Says Al Gore Joins Its Board
42 minutes ago Add Technology - Reuters to My Yahoo!



CUPERTINO, Calif. (Reuters) - Apple Computer Inc., maker of the sleek Macintosh (news - web sites) line of personal computers, said on Wednesday that former U.S. Vice President Al Gore (news - web sites) had joined the company's board.



Gore, known as one of the most technologically savvy U.S. politicians, was voted onto the Cupertino, California-based company's board at its meeting earlier on Wednesday, Apple said.


"Al brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and wisdom to Apple from having helped run the largest organization in the world -- the United States government," Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs (news - web sites) said in a statement. "Al is also an avid Mac user and does his own video editing in Final Cut Pro."


Gore said in a statement that he had been particularly impressed with Apple's Mac OS X (news - web sites) operating system and the company's commitment to the open-source software movement.


An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment beyond the company's news release.

Maybe Apple will due an update of the original "Think Different" commercial with good ol' Al running down the aisle to smash the big screen!!!!! That would be a hoot!

You know I heard that Apple had a 3.8 market share the other day but I think that Al will get another count and find that they actually have at least an 8 if not a 9% share

This is pitiful. Apple's reputation just took a nose dive in my opinion. how about putting people on the board that know anything about running a business. The government is not (unfortunately) a business. On top of that Al Gore always seemed pretty dim witted to me. Big mistake.
