Merger Mania Continues
Now there's talk, apparently, that Seagate might buy flash-memory player SanDisk Corp. (Nasdaq: SNDK). EE Times has a blip about it here.
There's not much of a telecom angle there, but it's interesting to see that the merger mill continues to churn here in the dog days of August. Li'l old SanDisk, which I covered as a startup way back when, would be a $4 billion buy. It's a sign that we can expect more deals along the lines of Brocade/Foundry and Finisar/Optium.
