Fujitsu puts the kibosh on possible sale to Western Digital

It seemed nearly imminent that Fujitsu would be selling off its hard disk division to rival Western Digital, but apparently something has gone awry. According to Fujitsu President Kuniaki Nozoe, there is currently "zero chance" of a deal being done, though he did confess that the two had sat down and contemplated changing their statuses to "it's complicated." Unfortunately, that's about all we have to go on for the moment, especially when you consider that WD's take on the whole ordeal is a concise "no comment." Who knows, maybe this is just cold feet or something, or maybe Fujitsu simply realized that it was better off saving itself for the one.
