In the News This topic comes up quite a lot on technology websites, but I generally try to steer clear from it as much as possible, since I'm not the one to talk about it (you know, with me being a man and all that), however, I feel it might be a good idea to just get my opinion out there and be done with it.

"our workforce (which was the largest local employer...".
Don't you think it's strange and a bit scary? But that's a topic for another article, I guess...
