    Digitimes are reporting that Taiwan's Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) may have drafted about NT$200 billion (US$6.50 billion) to bailout the DRAM industry there, although there has not yet been any official confirmation, it has certainly stirred up a commotion, $6.5 Billion USD is a lot of money wasted should the bailout go ahead and fail.

    My adult students have told me that the high tech industry here in Taiwan has been working 3 and 4 day weeks because of the financial crisis.

    R&D must be slowing down. I wonder if this will affect when new chips will be released?

    Bail outs are all I'm hearing about. Why should I care who gets "Bailed Out" when I'm bottomed out already.

    I guess I'm the only one who's doing well in this economy. Honestly I don't even know why stocks are down other than the media saying there is a problem. Gas is down. Taxes have been cut. Interest rates are low. I mean I'm doing great. Why the hell is the "bottom" falling out?
