Email (buzz@cnet.com)
Hey guys,

Just read this article on Cnet.com and was wondering what is going on with HP? First, the CEO exits out and now Peter Skillman is departing HP. I know that it is typical for people to leave after mergers or buy outs, but I am a Palm lover and hate to see an awesome product vanish away. I rocked the Palm treo for years and loved it but when the Palm Pre first went to Sprint I had to go the way of the Droid (shout out Molly Wood). It seemed like the Palm had a chance of survival when HP obtained them. But it now looks like everyone is jumping ship. I’m curious what your thoughts on the future of Palm. Love the show.
