Thats fairly obvious, people with real programming skills are needed, and people who have fancy titles arnt, thats a recession.

Interesting about the Mac developer demand though, well at least i've got a reason to laugh at my Microsoft based colleages now.

But from the information here in the article, that could just mean this:
previously; 100,000 jobs in IT, 5000 Mac related
now; 10,000 jobs in IT, 1700 Mac related.
