Seagate CEO: I help people "watch porn"
Anyone who thinks that Silicon Valley CEOs rarely say interesting things in public must read this salty interview with Seagate CEO Bill Watkins. Fortune's Jeffrey O'Brien got Watkins to open up about Dell, Apple, and his overall approach to business. The Browser is betting that Seagate's board of directors is not going to be pleased.

I strongly suggest that you republish your quote in its original context, as you equated the storage of pornography with the "ultimate mission" of Seagate.

Wow, right up there with the tabloids, don't believe everything you read.

Do not tell us that you Jim Ledbetter don't like to watch pornography. So stop making a big deal about something that is basically normal. Go out and start getting real stories.
