Did you or do you own an IBM
Deathstar Deskstar 75GXP drive? You know, one of the ones that were once
notorious for having crashed and burned due to what we might lightly refer to as severe manufacturing defects?
Certainly you'd know if you did, since so very many people lost data running on that drive; if you were one of them (or
just own one of the drives, for that matter), pass go and collect $100 from Big Blue! Owners of DTLA 307-015, 020, 030,
045, 060, or the 075 are entitled to a Benny thanks to a nationwide class action settlement enacted today—you've got
until August 29, 2005 to file, fools. Oh, and just in case you were curious, yes, their stock took a few dollars of a
dip today, too.
