IT Market Stalled, but Still Good

I came across two contradictory reports recently about IT jobs. The Huffington Post, which elevates story stealing to an art form (and yet still I go there) listed IT jobs as an area employers are struggling to fill.

But this doesn't jive with federal stats showing IT jobs are as stagnant as a damned up Mississippi swamp. While some segments are slightly up due to seasonality, others such as data processing and hosting are down. Net it all out and we are flat. Of course so is the economy -- and in these days just keeping steady is a plus in my book.

Well, maybe today's new MacBook announcement will set the IT industry on fire. It was absolutely thrilling... well, not exactly thrilling... but it was packed with excitement... well, not excitement really... but it was interesting... up until the point I dozed off. It must have all overwhelmed me into unconsciousness. Soon iSheep will crash the web site burning up their credit cards in their annual migration of cash to Cupertino.Our econony... well, China's more specifically... is saved!
