    Good info Tim. Seattle and San Fran are both tech places and they are the leaders in price increases. Maybe I shouldn’t have sold… I was wrong about prices being at the top. I think they will keep increasing as long as this tech boom continues.

    HP Lays Off Mass Workers

    Like 50K+….tech boom?

    The only tech boom I see is small hiring entities like Facebook, apocolypse “end of the world” video games are selling well to the depressed unemployed Millenials at Gamestop….laptops and O/Ss from MSFT are deteriorating like HP’s reliance on laptops leading to MASS layoffs. IPhones and their concurrent horrifying monthly user rates are booming, but how does that replace all the high paying jobs disappearring as fast as P/T low wage jobs are appearring.

    Facebook’s CEO [Zuckerberg sp?] wants illegal aliens and MASS insourcing of low wage foreign replacements for all you Seattle tech workers….sounds like Gates. Good luck.

    BTW, I pulled all this information from the stock financial news….dividends do go up with layoffs, reduces employee overhead costs. IMO, there isn’t hardly enough work to do with all of American workforce, now that automation and worker performance out-strips the need to hire. Yet Seattle’s stagnant and wage deteriorating economy is still being fed by more concurrent foreign overpopulation.
