Gartner now expects 2012 global IT spending of $3.6T (hurt by forex), down a bit from a prior forecast of $3.75T. Spending is expected to grow a muted 3.8% next year to $3.7T. Microsoft and IBM's Q3 reports and commentary (I, II) have already raised fears of a soft IT spending environment. Also: Gartner expects half of all non-PC devices sold in 2016, and half of all business IT devices sold at the end of the decade, will be bought by employees - that's a long-term trend that could benefit Apple and hurt Microsoft.
