Summary: as i said to the ceo of hitachi, he should focus less on his wifes gorgeous smile and make hdd's up to western digitals standards. it's caused me a fair bit of misery and it's not like it's cheaper then the leading brands WD and Seagate. Now he can practice during dinner when she smiles he can't look, no matter how enticing or utterly gorgeous it may be.
