Now that US high-tech jobs are going the way of the
steel industry decades ago, and many choice tech jobs are
pretty much gone forever to low productivity countries like India,
where wages are one tenth what they are here and living is cheap,
it seems to me that US consumers and IT workers should have no
reason to feel any allegience or loyalty toward those
companies that have betrayed US workers and consumers, which
according to a story last night on CNN include Microsoft,
Dell, Sun, HP/Compaq, Oracle and many others.
