IBM, Hitachi in storage pact. Basically IBM is pulling out of the hard drive market; preferring a non-controlling partnership (30% ownership) joint venture with Hitachi. Basically the hard drive market is too tough for big blue to keep up their hdd production arm. It's a pity really - the more companies merge, the less choice consumers have. I rather like IBM drives - nice and quiet for a start. I hate the loud grinding noise of cheap hard drives - absolutely fucking hate it.
