It's official: Apple's board of directors
now has a shiny new certificate to pin up over by the coffee machine, between the volleyball game announcement and the worker's-comp sign. Board member Albert Gore, Jr.
, who had some government gig before he won an Oscar, is a co-laureate (with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
) of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize
, honoring his work in climate awareness.
TUAW extends congratulations to Mr. Gore and to the Apple board, who now have a much better shot at getting the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela
to endorse the iPod and Leopard.Update
: Apple's home page
currently shows a tribute to Al Gore, and Apple is "bursting with pride." Picture if you read on. [thanks Martijn]
