On Monday last week I wrote here that the technology party might be over, and that the gloom pervading the financial sector could begin to affect high-tech firms. Since then - gosh, it seems a long time ago - a few things have happened.
Banks have tottered, an entire country has gone to the brink of bankruptcy, the London Stock Exchange has suffered its biggest one day fall for more than two decades, and the UK government has unveiled a £50bn rescue plan for the banks. As Torrid Tuesday has followed Manic Monday, the BBC's crack alliteration team has been under enormous pressure.
And, almost unnoticed, technology companies have been sucked into this vortex of gloom.
Make those who started the toxic subprime pay for it
