|Recently, I was in Orange County for a wedding. While there I discovered my (Paris) Hilton Hotel, was around the block from the world headquarters of Western Digital, WD. An aside, this part of Orange County was hills and a rock pit when I was a boy - there was no such thing as a Lake or a Forest back in the day. Now there's a man made lake and a bunch of recently planted eucalyptus trees.|
Anyway, I decided to drop in and ask the guys at work "How is business?" This was not a good idea because the place was all but closed down for the 4th of July week. I talked to the receptionist who was very friendly. But she was a short timer and did not know much about business. I had a bunch of questions about the Komag acquisition, the new CEO Coyne, where are the disk made, is the new 1.5 tredabyte disk selling. But there was no one home. Oh well, I get to southern California every 20 these days and I will have to visit WD next time I am in town.
To get some value from the trip to WD, I stopped at the Ross store and bought a new RED Los Angeles Angels T-shirt.
BTW, when did all these toll roads come to southern California?
