Seagate and Corning in Disk Drive Deal: Seagate Technologies, a leading vendor of disk drives for computer storage, said it would begin using a new ceramic-glass material developed by Corning Inc. to build better disk drives. Normally, the disks used in computer disk drives are made of aluminum, but Seagate said the new material represents a major technological advance that will enable it to use thinner disks with greater data-storage capacity. A Seagate executive said the new material will initially be limited to high-performance products but will eventually be used throughout Seagate's product line.
