Quote: "A squirrel dying in front of your house may be more relevant to your interests right now than people dying in Africa."

Quote: "Worst personnel decision since the idiots on the Apple board fired Steve Jobs many years ago."
Date: 8/10/2010



Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle defended Mark Hurd , the CEO of HP, with above quotes. Hurd got fired from HP following the discovery of inappropriate conduct in an investigation into a claim of sexual harassment made by former reality TV actress Jodie Fisher.
