    Yes; up to a point; but we also expect big corporations to exercise some moral judgement. Capitalising on floods which brought death and misery to millions doesn't sound all that moral to me, although perhaps I am out of touch with the modern world.

    I wonder how much of Seagate/WD's profits windfall was donated to help the flood relief effort?

    The factories were indeed flooded out and whole production facilities ruined. The floods were the worst Thailand had ever seen and nothing like this had ever been predicted. There is some quite good footage knocking around the net showing the interiors of the flooded HD plants.
