Cell phone technology is not slowing down nor is it expected to. These idiots can't pay their mortgage and complain about unemployment, but they have got to have the new iPhone.

Your clear articulation was better than my two cents. I am in awe that some people with such tiny brains are so able to text with their thumbs. So sure these idiots are worthless but look at the amazingly useless skill set they have developed. You don't expect such a useless skill to go to waste do you? I say give the idiots electronic trinkets that they shall go forth texting instead of reproducing.

This company is a micro version of RFMD which I own and bought dirt cheap. I have this on my caps and have been awaiting a big down turn to buy in. While the texting world thinks it has the world under it thumbs, none of this works without RF circuits. RF circuits have far fewer engineers than digital are vastly more difficult to produce. If RFMD gets real busy, then the other boats in the convoy will also benefit because demand out strips the supply and lord knows... until we get some female engineers to apply their vast brainpower to the economies of scale, everyone will be at the mercy of RF nerds and their limited supply.

My theory about America is that ever since it substituted well roundedness in favor of the warp of eccentric horned rimmed zit faced genius, the whole thing has gone into the tank. So for thirty freaking years with the promise of Barbi taking football physics classes and crying to the professor under title 8, we don't have a single female nobel prize winner in math chem or physics buuuuuuuttttt we have a nice shortage of supply of RF nerd engineers. When I graduated from Caltech with a physics degree and microwave subspeciality, I got turned away because I showed up for the Martin interview in wearing my mud boots and farmer john shirt. They hired some blonde barbi with D cups. So I got hired the following week driving a bulldozer and hung my physic's degree on the back of my Dozer. Six months later I was invited back to Martin for another interview. This time I wore my dozer clothing with this great pair of heavy duty leather gloves which I refused to take off my hands. Here I was shaking hands with everyone with these freaking cowhide gloves. So I took the job provided that I could supervise the Blondie D cups. They said OK and the rest is history. I married Blondie D cups and we had three kids, and I taught Blondie how to drive equipment and my favorite picture of her is her driving a D-10 Cat with our baby girl in a papoose knocking down trees in a swirl of diesel exhaust bursting out of the flap lid. Indeed... its a nerd's world by jove.

Agree with Lordrobot on the lack of intellectual supply. Maybe if so many people didnt want to be lawyers and doctors, and want $200k a year, we wouldn't have an issue. But when geniuses who design microprocessor architectures get paid less than a second-rate attorney at any major corporate firm, its no wonder people choose to study what they do. Don't like the job demographics - thank our fat over supplied law-suit industry.
