was pretty anticlimactic. Seagate, which filed suit against SSD-maker STEC
back in April -- claiming the company infringed on four of its patents for SSD interfaces -- in March after talking quite a sizeable game
about similar possible actions against the big boys (Intel and Samsung), has just dropped the claim. Seagate said that the case against STEC was "no longer worth pursuing" because economic conditions are now so bad that STEC isn't really selling many of the SSDs in question. That all sounds a little like saying "Monopoly stinks, let's play something else" when you're losing so bad you only have Baltic Avenue left, but maybe that's just us.
