Apple's New Technology Gap

Apple's New Technology Gap -- Apple Computer has appointed Millard "Mickey" Drexler to its board of directors.

Apple apparently hopes to leverage Drexler's consumer and retail marketing experience to expand Apple's user base and product appeal. Anyone for a khaki iMac? [GD]
