* Seagate to sue?

Seagate is telegraphing lawsuits if solid state hard drives catch on: apparently they think there's some patent violation in other makers' designs.

But in case flash prices continue to plummet and the flash drives really do catch on, Watkins has something else up his sleeve. He?s convinced, he confides, that SSD makers like Samsung and Intel (INTC) are violating Seagate?s patents. (An Intel spokeswoman says the company doesn?t comment on speculation.) Seagate and Western Digital (WDC), two of the major hard drive makers, have patents that deal with many of the ways a storage device communicates with a computer, Watkins says. It stands to reason that sooner or later, Seagate will sue ? particularly if it looks like SSDs could become a real threat.
