    Tech meltdown hits some harder than others
    The Associated Press
    7:28 PM EST January 22, 2009

    The economic recession is hurting every industry, and technology is no
    exception - big names like Microsoft Corp., Intel Corp. and Dell Inc.
    have had layoffs as they try to cut costs and stay competitive amid
    declining sales.

    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.

    Here are some questions and answers about how the tech industry is
    weathering the financial crisis.
    Q: How is this recession different for tech companies than the last one?

    A: The 2001 recession stemmed in large part from the bursting of the
    tech industry bubble. This time around, the industry has been caught up
    in the downturn but is not a major cause - areas like housing and
    banking are taking much of the blame.

    Another difference: Nowadays, products like MP3 players and cell phones
    are more integrated than ever into consumers' everyday lives, and
    software and computers are increasingly intertwined with companies'
    operating needs.

    Q: How are companies that sell things like cell phones and computers
    being affected thus far?

    A: Retail sales, both on and off the Web, have been slowing as consumers
    put off buying new things - electronics included. According to The NPD
    Group, U.S. holiday sales of electronics and computers dropped 5.7
    percent compared with last year.

    This drop-off in spending hurt companies from Intel, which is seeing
    less demand for its computer chips as PC sales drop, to Nokia Corp.,
    which said the number of cell phones it shipped during the fourth
    quarter dropped 15 percent from the year-ago quarter.

  8. Look, Roy. I have NEVER made a gay slur. That is ALL YOU DO.

    Do you even understand the difference?

    Roy... You are "available" from WebTV. That is A: obsolete, and B: not
    "every available medium".

    In other words, you retarded twit, you are about as far behind the
    technology curve as any person can possibly get. And you PAY THEM for
    their "SERVICE"! Bwuahahahahaah!

    Hahahah... yeah, Roy... they are servicing you alright. How does it
    feel when it is slipping in?

    Trollopping is not a word, Roy. Is there anything about you that isn't
    100% retarded?

    You made Trolloping a word, Troll.
    It is All THAT YOU DO., Trollop in and out of a.e.e. like it's your
    homepage.

    I just called you gay to counteract your retard, but I wouldn't be
    surprised if you are some homo introrvert by the way you mask your true
    self to run your little campaign of harassment, you wretch.

    Don't try and pass your twisted justifications here, you aren't
    justified., & go smoke your crap elsewhere, Biggot.

  10. No, idiot. NOT "retarded" like someone with a disability. Roy, YOU are
    "retarded" as in someone that *would be* intelligent, but demonstrates
    time and time again just how many steps BACKWARD (retardation) you can
    take mankind and yourself.

    You are beyond being able to understand, so I do not expect you to.
     
  11. You're a goddamned idiot, Roy. You know... A RETARD!
    It's not for you to say, you Period-Comma RETARD! You are the group
    invader. I have proof.
    It is really none of your goddamned business, fuckhead.
    The word is BIGOT, you RETARDED ****! That is what YOU are, Roy.

    the street and try explaining something and he acts like Duh' or
    goesTerrets on me, I just walk away, he was smart enough to make it to
    the place I found him, he can certainly get along on his own.

    Dammit! what are you my fairy godtroll?

    You are the one that has made a whole big deal about it.So I'm
    retarded, you're a fucking faggot, **** it I don't care, I don't like

  14. **** you, Roy. You are so fucking stupid that despite the fact that
    EVERYONE EXPLAINS EVERYTHING to your DUMB ASS, you still can't get a
    grasp on reality.
    Not gay, you REATARDED ****!
    No, Roy, but your remarks do prove that you are retarded.
    Yes, Roy. We can tell. That why we do not like you. You are a
    bigoted, retarded little bastard.
    Leave retarded folks alone, Roy. You cannot help anyone in the world,
    no matter how hard you try, so give it up, asshole.
    A retarded, bigoted **** like you wouldn't know.
    No, I am your worst nightmare.
    No, I didn't. You were fine until you mouthed off like a little ten
    year old pussy boy. You bad mouthed my mom. For that, you are lucky to
    still be alive. This treatment you get here is mild, boy.

    You most certainly are, fuckhead.
    No, I am not, fuckhead.
    Apparently you do. You actually draft posts about that instead of
    anything even remotely related to the topic this group is about.
    Good for you, pussy boy.
    **** off, then die, and leave this fucking group while you are at it,
    and you will get your wish. Remain here, and all your stupidity will be
    outlined with every post you make. You deserve nothing less.

    **** You Then ! I am NOT RETARDED YOU HOMSEXAUL....I'm Disabled.

    You keep this shit up harassing me like it's your duty, but it's more of
    a retarded gay fixation, Idiot... Don't try to cast the beam out of my
    eye, when you have a pretty big splinter in yours...

    These rants and decision of yours to point out my alleged stupidity only
    points out that You are a closet case, admit it closet boy, just leave
    me alone you are not getting any satisfaction from me.

    I am also much better at Electrical Engineering Technology & Work than
    you are, for the Retard unSchooled **** you think I am. My posts and
    responses shouldn't worry you at all, closet case..

    You on the other hand, who knows what access you have to sensitive data
    and equipment or how many lives depend on you - you are a living
    nightmare you stupid sick ****..Shame on the mess you've created !

    Why don't you tell us your real agenda?

    Are you scared of your own shadow?

    {{{{{You're Being a Hater}}}}} Get over it.

    Accept, Forgive and Move On......

    I don't hold grudges for long you on the other hand keep posting hate in
    your replies, there are No Idiots Here...
    Behave yourself and all will be well.

    Smile, and the World will Smile with you.

    Trouble is you've Violated your own Code of Conduct with your Trollops.

    THAT'S WHAT'S REALLY SO MESSED UP TO YOU - KEEPING UP THIS WAR ONLY
    DEBILITATES YOUR "ORIGINAL RESOLVE" - GOOD WORKS, PEACE, RIGHTEOUSNESS
    AND A CLEAN AND PROFESSIONAL USENET.

    It's hard for you to turn back now, right?
    YOU'RE AFRAID OF THE MONSTER YOU'VE BECOME - I can clean the slate and
    align myself without any of your help, can You do the same?

    I am not afraid to be myself....a studious, applied, decent but down to
    earth, long suffering, hard working, amicable person.

    The group deserves nothing less.

    Roy Q.T.
    [have tools, will travel]
     

  16. You do not explain ANYTHING, Roy, so NO, it does NOT work both ways
    simply because you don't know a goddamned thing about the topic.
     

  17. Is it just me or is there something completely wrong with an idiot that
    makes a remark like this?

    You are certified. You are certifiable however. As a fucking loon.
     

  18. In your dreams, RoyFag. The only thing you are a mirror image of is a
    small desiccated pile of shit.
     

  19. No, you are not a birth deformed retard. You are a self made retard.
    Your retardedness comes from the mindset which YOU propagated for
    yourself.

    It doesn't get any more stupid than a fucktard that cannot handle being
    wrong, and you are that in nearly every case.
     
  20. No, you are not. Do you get 15 or 20 hours of OT a day where you get to
    make the world a safer place? NO. Your "contribution" to society is the
    abuse you perform in this group. You do not do anything on any day that
    is not for the betterment of ROY'S ass. You have never done anything for
    others in your life, and your attitude here proves it.


    You obviously are, or you would not be in here abusing this group with
    the excuse that you are abusing me.
    I'll bet you feel a little bit more secure when you make such retarded
    accusations, but the reality hits home when I respond with more RoyFag
    RoyFacts. I will dig some more up. It looks like you need another slap
    in the face, idiot.
