Scottish Winchester manufacturer Rodime Plc of Glenrothes has lost its OEM contract for 3.5 Winchesters from Apple Computer Inc, Cupertino, which has given its new primary contract for 20Mb drives to MiniScribe Inc, Longmont, Colorado. A senior Rodime executive conceded that Apple had chosen rival 3.5 diskmaker MiniScribe to become its principal supplier, but says talks are with Apple are continuing, implying that Rodime may retain a second source pact for the drives. Whatever the outcome, Rodime hopes to continue to win business from the Apple market – it has three new 5.25 external drives Mac retail market in the US. The Rodime Plus drives have 28mS access and store 60Mb, 100Mb and 140Mb, at $1,800, $2,300 and $2,600 respectively.
