Seagate Core Value: Helping People Watch Porn

@ 11:54 PM

長久一來,我一直都是HGST(IBM)的愛用者,而死雞牌的硬碟,雖然以安靜著稱,但我每每還是選擇效能較佳(?)、維修便利的日立硬碟。但死雞牌不虧是世界第一大硬碟製作商,其CEO的快人快語和真知灼見,實在不得不叫人佩服:

At a San Francisco dinner on Tuesday evening, he was candid about his company's ultimate mission: "Let's face it, we're not changing the world. We're building a product that helps people buy more crap - and watch porn."

Bill Watkins談到Seagete的營運目標是:我們做的不是什麼偉大產品,只是幫助消費者買更多的垃圾(內容)和看A片。

"The biggest issues in our business are security, DRM (How can we unlock the content?), form factor and power. How can we make a low-power solution? These are the problems." As for upcoming products, "We'll have a terabyte drive out by the summer. It'll probably be about $700, but you know how it works. People will be able to get it for less."

這行業最大的問題在於:安全性、外觀造型、電力消耗以及DRM(我們要怎麼破解那些該死的防拷?)。我們今年夏天將會推出容量達到1TB的硬碟,大概會賣個美金700大洋,但你知道的,消費者總是能用更低的價錢買到。
