Dr. Eric Schmidt had quite the conundrum. You see, Eric had both an iPhone and a Google Android and didn’t know which one to use. Choosing between smart phones isn’t really the most life altering of quandaries, but it is when you’re the CEO of Google and a member of the Apple Board of Directors.

Needless to say, it would be kind of awkward if you were at an Apple Board meeting and pulled out your Google Android to answer an emergency call and vice versa. The dilemma sort of reminds us of that Three’s Company episode where Jack had to decide which Swedish stewardess to go on a date with, ultimately choosing the one that doesn’t require that he be tethered to AT&T’s crappy network.

So in keeping with Jack Tripper‘s lead Schmidt ditched his iPhone and ultimately the Apple Board of Directors, nipping the conflict of interest in the bud.  Word is he’s quite happy with his Android and will continue to be until the next sexy young phone thing comes along.
