Seagate Technology PLC is the second-largest maker of hard drives. Together, Western Digital and Hitachi will be nearly twice as large as Seagate, by number of units shipped, according to research firm iSuppli.

And didn't Hitachi buy up IBMs hard drive stuff some years ago? I seem to remember something about a death star.

Yup; the article mentions that was in 2002.

Lol, that must have been my IBM hard drive, but I didn't know it was so famous. It began to die under warranty, and I got it replaced by Hitachi. They did a first-class job with that, and I'm still using the replacement Hitachi drive today.
