More Ph.D. applications; fewer Ph.D. spots

We all knew this already, but here is a Harvard Crimson article about how there are more Ph.D. applicants and fewer spots to fill. More people are applying because there aren't jobs; schools are taking fewer people because they expect to be able to fill fewer spots in the next few years.

I wonder what the specifics are for computer science, where Ph.D. programs tend to be long and many people coming out of doctorate programs go into industry.
