 Just a few weeks ago there was a news story that said that DRAM and FLASH pricing was in decline due to over supply, as the result of slower than anticipated sales of phones/PC's/Tablets. So, what is the true state of supply for Flash/Dram??

Market still in transition

To me it looks like it is still too early to call a winner in this market. It is very tempting to draw a straight line in terms of SSD's replacing traditional spinning mass storage, but there are architectural shifts still happening in the computing market. At a minimum I can see solid state devices moving off of SATA and other traditional interfaces and onto ones that better support them. I also expect even more integration of PC components rather than the traditional mix-and-match component architecture we have had for so long. In that situation it's hard to tell who might come out on top.

Calling OCZ a "strong survivor" damages the credibility of this commentary in all other respects.  It is very questionable whether they remain solvent.
