"Western Digital, which makes hard drives for computers, announced this morning it will buy Hitachi Global Storage Technologies for about $4.3 billion in cash and stock. The hard drive world has been seen as ripe for consolidation, particularly as the rise of tablet computers such as the Apple iPad– which don’t use hard drives for data storage — is casting doubt on the future of the sector. Seagate, for example, was the target of failed takeover talk last year."
