Not necessarily so, as Hitachi is a premier elctronics mfg.Could be a good thing. The drives are already farmed out to a Taiwanese concern.

Logitech makes most mice (even MS mice's parts), most monitors you buy at Best Buy come from the same manufacturer before they are sold to Samsung, Viewsonic, MAG, E-Machine, HP, Compaq, (and yes) Sony... Most blank cd's come from only about 3 places, and I spose, it is destined to happen that IBM's HDD line will be bought out by someone. Heck, now that I think about it, half of the cd burners that are out there are made by.... dang... forgot the company... I'll remember it later. My point is, it is just the never ending cycle of new development, followed by line/company purchacing, followed by monopoly.

One problem with making electronic hardware in the US is the environmental laws.

Those guys face expensive cleanups, and long continuing maintenance of sites where they manufacture.
