Have you voted for OCAU in the Grudge Match today? :)

I guess the big news for today is that Quantum and Maxtor are merging their HDD manufacturing businesses into a single company called Maxtor Corporation. Quantum Corp will continue making tape drives etc. Anyone else remember when Conner was inhaled by Quantum? :) UPDATE: Ahh, well done to everyone who spotted my (ahem) deliberate mistake. It was, of course, Seagate who inhaled Conner.
