Well it seems like you have not been in the loop recently... Seagate was a top-notch brand a few years back. Since then they have skimped using inferior parts that in turn lead to disasterous sales. Since the caviar blacks came out they basically wiped there arse with seagate...Even Samsung spinpoints are more reliable and that says alot...are you serious? I for one never bought an overpriced WD hard drive when the alternatively cheaper and equally performing hard drive available from seagate. I'm sure many would agree with me
Ah, Bob Kearns vs Ford case. Hey oORaidOo did you saw the Flash of Genius movie. Look for that movie, it is story of that case.There was a famous lawsuit in Detroit in 1990, a jury decided that Ford infringed on Kearns' patent, though it concluded the infringement was not deliberate. Ford had contended the patent was invalid because the windshield system contained no new concepts. But Kearns argued a new combination of parts made his invention unique.
