WD is going to have some challenges ahead as Samsung and Intel and other chip makers cut into the hard drive market through increased deployment of SSDs. WD makes SSDs as well, but they are no longer the kingpin they once were in storage... they will be just another player in a very large chip market.

WD's always been a minor player in the market. After all these years, they still don't have a position in the enterprise HDD market (although they do own HGST now..). They received a bit of a bounce in the past year or two because of the HDD crisis, but prices are now falling like a rock again, and the laptop HDD segment is likely to dissappear a lot faster than they imagined.
