Former HP CEO Shifts Blame for Autonomy Deal to Chairman - Arik Hesseldahl - News - AllThingsD

The "I wasn't wrong alone" defense...
"There was more to call Apotheker’s competence into question that day — Aug. 18, 2011 — that contributed toward his stint as CEO being cut short. HP fell short on earnings, and he also launched the ill-fated effort to spin off the PC unit as a separate company and killed the Palm handheld and tablet unit acquired only a year earlier by his predecessor Mark Hurd.
Clearly Apotheker doesn’t like getting all the blame for the deal. Lane was certainly at the table and lent his support for it. And for that matter, so was Whitman.
Consider yourself reminded."
