Prospects not crippled at all
IT jobs are growing quite well. Search for tech jobs at any large tech company, government agency or university and you'll find plenty of available jobs. Outsourcing has never been the issue with technology jobs skills have been the issue. It's a demanding field that requires you to not only keep up with trends but also to set them. Sure I get what you are saying, once upon a time a guy could make a living tearing apart a desktop PC and replacing a broken part but nowadays desktop PCs don't exist. Most data is served from the "cloud." In short, if the desktop PC technician didn't become a cloud services technician, then yeah, he's out of a job.
