Default Seagate claims SSD violates its patents

According to an interview on CNN with Seagate's CEO, Bill Watkins, Seagate is considering taking legal action against SSD manufacturers, as the company claims that they might be violating patents with regard to how storage devices are interfacing with the PC.

Bill Watkins also implied that Western Digital holds some of these patents and might consider similar action. However, this might only happen if SSD starts taking a large share of the hard drive manufacturers' market, which at the moment doesn't look like it's about to happen too soon. mid=38
