I am surprised WD or Emc didn't buy FIO. I thought Fio's technology was some of the best. Makes me a bit worried now Fio will be left in the dust as these other companies start to take their market share away. Seems starnge with flash industry consolidating and no one wants FIO.
Expand or get acquired? It's starting to look like the board made Robison ceo to get the company sold. It was to convenient for a board member to drop in as ceo without any warning. It also explains why the founders didn't stick around. I suspect they were too emotionally attached to the company to support getting acquired.
