Parenthetical Remarks[edit]

There was an inordinate amount of commentary in parenthesis, which I attempted to reword in a decent manner. Please correct if you don't think it to be appropriate, but parenthetical remarks are hard to read. I have to fight the urge to keep down such remarks, myself, tending to insert excess factoids into otherwise useful information....

Also, HDD-related development is still being done at the IBM Rochester site by former the IBM STD resources divested to Hitachi GST. HGSTers from IBM don't like to forget their heritage. GMW 05:59, 2 April 2006 (UTC) hi peeps what up

Update needed[edit]

This article needs quite a bit of work to bring it up to date. A decade ago, this facility still had over five thousand employees. Now it shrunk by half as manufacturing is outsourced. Jonathunder (talk) 01:59, 7 August 2013 (UTC)


who nicknamed it the "big blue zoo". what source is there for this moniker? even if a few folks can be found, what constitutes a formal nickname? perhaps this is pure hogwash... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:100:6156:FBF9:0:0:0:1 (talk) 19:08, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
