Flash Drives Replacing HDDs in 2 years – Seagate to buy STEC?

EMC thinks that flash disks are going to replace HDDs in two years:

Dave Donatelli, a senior exec at EMC – the largest data storage vendor – predicted that high-end flash drives will replace high-end hard drives in 2 years. Is this the beginning of the end for disk drives?

Which had me thinking about the STEC vs Seagate lawsuit. How much do you want to bet that Seagate is simply using this lawsuit as leverage to buy STEC outright?

If HDDs are going the way of the dinosaur then maybe this is Segate’s way of quickly evolving?
