This is pretty relevant, and especially interesting given our international membership. I'm hoping friends outside the US will respond too! How has this economic downturn / recession affected you? If you're young, has the mood changed around your house? If you are in your 20's are you buying stocks/ extra contributions to your 401k? If you are older or in retirement are you very nervous or panicking? Does anyone need any guidance or a second opinion? I'm curious to see how the iPhone/iPod Touch crowd has been effected by this economy! Any thoughts?
