Good news for anyone looking to buying a hard drive or computer in the next year or so -- Western Digital has partially restored production at one of its manufacturing plants in Thailand, and expects to have all the water pumped out of a second within 10 days.
I don't want to make light of a tragedy because the floods in Thailand have been worse than imaginable. The flooding has killed over 500 people, caused £3 billion in damage and has been ongoing since mid-summer. It's a sad, sad state of life. But instead of giving up, the people of Thailand are adapting. And it's awesome to see.
One of the world's largest hard drive makers has emerged as another victim of the floods that've hit Thailand, with WD reporting that one of its Thai plants has been "inundated" by water and some equipment is currently underwater.
