Thankfully I got myself a pair of 2TB seagate drives 3 months ago. Now the same drive costs 3 times. What a joke. It seems like these companies are cashing in on flood problem.

Western Digital announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (GST), the disk drive arm of Hitachi Ltd., in a cash and stock transaction valued at about $4.3 billion.

Western Digital is the leading supplier of hard disk drive technology, with about 31% of the market, followed by Seagate Technology with 29%. Hitachi GST's business represents about 18% of total hard drive units shipped, according to market research firm iSuppli. Once combined, Western Digital and Hitachi GST will handily dominate Seagate in the market.
