China's STILL holding up the full WD-HGST integration. Why?

It isn't about reducing (or not) competition, it's about reducing overhead for the merged entity that used to be separate companies WD and HGST.

If the cost of being in business is lower, they can better compete with Seagate on price.

(whether *anyone*--WD, Seagate, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Samsung, HGST--anyone, in all of this will actually be producing better drives is a separate issue)
