Creating space for the human experience
LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX) and its LaCie brand prove that
storage is a must-have item as they showcase new and innovative storage
solutions at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show.
“As storage becomes an increasingly integral part of everything we do,
the established ideas about it must change,” said Scott Horn, VP
marketing. “People around the world are in urgent need of space to store
their most cherished memories, information and data, so we at Seagate
are on a mission to provide people with the space they need for all of
their lifelong experiences. To keep pace with changing needs and
demands, we have to remove limits around design, function, form and
features. The announcements we’re making here today
demonstrate how Seagate and LaCie are leading that charge.”
