IBM to hire 19,000:
"...One-third of the positions are in the United States, spokesman Edward Barbini said."
Ummm, realistically, I would expect about maybe 1/5 of these to end up in the States - and even those will vaporize in a year or two. Outsourcing = competence erosion for many firms, but IBM ain't one of them.
