We knew that plenty of Palm employees left once HP acquired the company, but now we know the latest one to jump ship: Peter Skillman, Palm's Vice President of Design. Also known as the man who designed the Pre.

It's sad to see yet another high-ranking individual leave Palm and HP so soon after HP CEO Mark Hurd's resignation, but as TechCrunch's MG Siegler remarks: This "should hardly be surprising, given [...] rumors of a mass exodus of executives from Palm as the HP deal neared completion." [TechCrunch]
