    Sony is very big in the movie industry. But I'm so sure there could be no correlation between this fact and the fact that they choose to put matshita or matsushita drives into their computers. These nice people would never do somthing bad to us right? ;)

    Seriously, these "Mat-Matsu" drives they include in their VAIOs might be another hardware compliment or attempt to succeed where they failed at (and got busted for) their RootKit abomination.

    Conspiracy theory? I believe the reason is, that the Matsushita (Panasonic) notebook OEM drives are the cheapest they can get.
    They are used by Sony (who have their own Sony-Nec "OptiArc" drives), IBM/Lenovo, Toshiba (who have their own TSSTCORP drives!) and Apple.
    It is hard to get a notebook *without* a Matsushita drive these days.
    Maybe Samsung (who use - what a surprise - Samsung drives).
