ComputerScienceCarreerFilter, CrystalBallFilter: I'm shortly going to transition from a Community college to a four-year university - Hopefully in pursuit of a BS degree in Computer Science. Which specializations are good for job security and income potential?

Background: I'm a 'Alternative' (39) student looking to start a good career - My math performance so far is B-range average, but I've done well with the CS related materials to date(Two classes at the CC, one at the four year I'm planning on attending). I think I could gain interest in a pretty wide range across the field, from what I've been exposed to (Online, reading through ACM abstracts(When I understand them!), etc ). The guidance counselors here are helpful but clueless, and the CS faculty seem to answer with hobby horse specializations (Geolocation technology? Really?). Should I just 'Punt' by keeping things generalized and narrowing in later?
