There is a story on Gizmodo today with pictures of Steve Jobs and Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, having coffee in Palo Alto.
Okay, normally, this is be less than significant and most people would ignore it all together, but there is some significance to this. Most notably, Jobs and Schmidt are speaking at all.
The Apple/Google breakup, which started last summer, was very public. Ultimately, it lead to Schmidt resigning from Apple’s board of directors.
In a statement when Schmidt resigned, Jobs said that it was because Google was entering more of Apple’s core businesses. Specifically, Google was releasing the Android mobile operating system and the Chrome desktop operating system.
