But the effects of the meltdown haven't been spread evenly across the sector -- even within companies, sales of certain products may fall while others are more resilient. It seems that the health of tech companies has a lot to do with what they sell, and who their customers are. "It's definitely a mixed and complicated picture here," Forrester Research analyst Andy Bartels said.

Well, you and I both know that this economic issue in US/ World is not something new yet media screaming 24/7 about it is really new. Media is trying to make it very scary and not sure how can a Domino effect like this one can get any better and calm by shouting bad news every second?
Now that we are in this stormy bad news, the only thing that we should do is to increase the productivities and think as lean as we can and improve the quality of our work and products to reduce the waste and hope for the calm and better tomorrow.
