I thought by now they be going HDD and SSD to keep up with market demands? Looks like bad management is at work again and the employees are the one that takes the blame.
Wow their employees make over $100,000 each! Well some is for benefits, but that is a lot of coin.
Thats chump change if you live in the USA, I am retired and get SS, but when I worked for CDS, they gave 150,000K to kids out of college (4year degree) with a Certification in EMC. ( Sun Certification ( now OracleDB) was also required.
Holy **&^&^ lol...
The average salary for a professional is approaching 100k.. some professions pay more, some alot less (degreed professionals) as the starting salary..Its knd of sad they can't find a place for these people in the SSD division.. SSD would be a substaintially bigger market if they can just CUT THE DAMN prices already... it should be no more than a 50% premium (street price) to the HDD line byte for byte..
