As the American Electronics Association reports "nearly 750,000, close to 13 percent of all high-tech jobs in the United States have been lost over the past two years." In 2002, the sector "lost close to 540,000 and another 234,000 jobs in 2003."
Looks like all those bums in high school that thought, "Hey, I'll go to school at a tech college and score a job in IT and start at $50,000 a year!" are wishing they'd thought of a career with more job security.

Woo, Newegg.com is having a Thanksgiving day sale. Some pretty good deals, Radeon 9800XT for $465, and Sony DRU510A DVD burner for $165. Ends on the 28th.
