    Predicting WDC will fall to 10'x by August/Sept Season inside

    Desktop sales: almost zero: almost zero HDD sales
    Laptop sales: dropping, see Dell.
    All companies move to iPad like device: NO HDD
    Enterprise space: IBM said companies are in delima
    to buy, HDD sales less

    so HDD companies are no longer growing as before,
    what will happen to STX WDC.... ????

    • Dell was doomed to fail, as did gateway. Premium pc makers can't compete against low end oem. That's probably why IBM got out of the PC business.

      Apple computer is only successful because of mass marketing. They are doomed to fail if they don't adjust to compete against the low end oem, in the long term.

      WDC and STX have a strong hold on their distribution channels and therefore, can squeeze out their competitors. If the oem's push for SSD's WDC and STX can supply these if necessary. But until then WDC, STX will continue to push for HDD's.

      By the way, HDD's will probably be offered outside of PC's, ie robot cars, cash registers, home security, and on and on.....
