    OT: Apple Computer says Al Gore joins its board

    CUPERTINO, Calif., March 19 (Reuters) - Al Gore, former U.S. vice president and Democratic presidential candidate, has joined the board of Apple Computer Inc. (AAPL), maker of the sleek Macintosh line of personal computers, the company said on Wednesday.

    Gore, known as one of the most technologically savvy U.S. politicians and an early backer of public funding for the Internet, was voted onto the Cupertino, California-based company's board at its meeting earlier on Wednesday.

    "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 said in a statement. "Al is also an avid Mac user and does his own video editing in Final Cut Pro."

    Gore, who helped popularize the phrase "Information Superhighway," said in a statement that he had been particularly impressed with Apple's Mac OS X operating system and the company's commitment to the open-source software movement.

    Wonder what he'll invent at Apple?

    I can't wait to see the Apple dimpled chad vote counting computer.

    But after all he did invent the Internet.

    How many time's do you think he'll make the count the votes at a 20 person board meeting.
