Submission + - When Steve Jobs tried to save Mark Hurd's job as HP CEO (edibleapple.com)

An anonymous reader writes: HP always held a special place in Steve Jobs' heart. Indeed, it was the company that gave him his first job at the ripe age of 13.

That said, it's recently been revealed that Jobs during the Summer of 2010 tried to do all he could to save former HP CEO Mark Hurd's job following allegations of inappropriate conduct. Jobs even offered to call up each HP board member individually and plead Hurd's case.

Ultimately, Jobs' efforts weren't enough to keep Hurd in the CEO position at HP. Jobs, an Apple board member noted, strongly felt that a healthy HP was crucial for a healthy Silicon Valley.
