But the Squeeze Is Still On

While your job may be safe, your working budget may not be. The Computer Economics group argues that some in IT may soon have less to spend (now you don't have to buy all those new Vista PCs!).

The group says that IT budgets overall were set to rise some 4 percent, but due to a tough economy, a lot of this money will never get spent.

It also claims that IT last year spent $7,397 for each user, but will only spend $6,667 per person this year. If IT is spending that much for each of us, where's my new dual-core laptop?

What are your budgets, salaries and hiring situations like? Let us know at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
