What is ironic is that came under Clinton/Gore. Google was just getting started and Apple was much smaller than it was now with both needing that deal to get where they are 20 years later.
Google Up Against Laws That Thwarted Microsoft (and Others Since 1890)
Odd too that Al Gore got rich with a seat on the board of Apple and a lot of low cost stock options AND a "special advisor" position at Google that probably also came with many stock options.

Since they couldn't give him the presidency due to a few hanging chads in Florida, they did the next best thing and made him very, very wealthy.

Ironic now that Google and Apple are under the same microscope for doing the same thing that gave them the markets from Microsoft.
