It's amazing how cut throat the HD industry is. Over the weekend I saw a 2TB external for $79. Hard to believe.

I think the whole idea of Seagate selling out is a bad idea. They are going through a low period right now but all it's going to take to turn it around is to pull manufacturing out of china and put it back in thailand or anywhere else and take qc to an extreme until the seagate drive is the last drive to fail, right now it's the first.

"Potential consolidation partners include Toshiba, Samsung, and Western Digital." A merger of seagate and WDC doesnt make any sense. Both of them have similar productline and compete head to head. I would say sandisk or toshiba is a better choice. This way we can see hybrid harddisks (nand+magnetic) in market sooner :).
