Bloomberg: Hiring in the tech industry is way up, leading some to caution that the sector may be in the midst of another bubble. Fifty tech firms valued at $100 million or more, including Apple and Amazon, have increased their headcount by 50 percent or more in the last two years. And 70 of those large tech firms have increased headcount by at least 10 percent. Some smaller firms have tripled their number of employees.
