Merger Mania Continues

3:40 PM -- Wow, it's been years since I followed the carnage that was the disk drive industry. Seagate Technology LLC (Nasdaq: STX) ended up a big winner, obviously.

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.

re: Merger Mania Continues In case anybody here cares... it's not Seagate, but Samsung, that's making a hostile bid for SanDisk:
