...from Gap's Board of Directors.



Gap, Inc. today announced that Apple and Pixar CEO Steve Jobs resigned from Gap's Board of Directors earlier this week to "focus on other priorities," as noted by iPoding. "On behalf of the Board, I'd like to thank Steve for his contributions," said Gap Chairman Donald Fisher. Penny Hughes, a former Coca-Cola executive in Europe will take Jobs' spot on the company's Board. Last week, it was reported that Gap and Apple were listed among eight companies in the October 7 issue of BusinessWeek as having the worst Boards of Directors.

I know Gap had a lot of influence on the Apple Stores including layout experience, store locations, etc.



Did Steve just use Gap like an ugly girlfriend and then dump their ass? Pretty funny.



Who from Gap is on Apple's board?

    Well, that's interesting. I suppose.

    Any linkage to articles or PRs?

    Steve just felt bad about being a part of 2 of the worst 8 boards in the industry. Now he's only the head of one of them.

    Of course, the big question now is, where is SJ going to get his free polo-necks?
