This whole economic crisis is hurting every industry, and technology is no exception. FYI, I work in an IT company and this scares me. Big companies like Microsoft and Dell have had layoffs already. I am sure you’ve heard about Circuit City, the popular electronic retailer has filed bankruptcy late last year. And just recently, recession has hit world’s biggest semiconductor manufacturer, Intel, as they close their Cavite plant after 12 years, with more than 1500 employees. And almost everyday, there are several other companies filing for bankruptcy (Need a complete bankruptcy report? No worries. With usbankruptcyrecords.com, obtaining a copy of the US Bankruptcy Record that you need has is as easy as googling it. Just do a search by full name or business name and voila!

Hay, I really pray that all of this recession thing will come to an end, soon.
