    Lexar makes a wide range of memory chips
    Lexar Media has escalated a patent spat with electronics firm Toshiba, calling for the US to ban imported memory cards that are made by its Japanese rival.
    The row stems from a 2005 court case in which Toshiba was found guilty of stealing Lexar's trade secrets. Toshiba is appealing against the verdict.

    Lexar wants to ban imports of Nand chips, which are used in digital music players, cameras and mobile phones.

    If the ban were imposed, it could hurt Toshiba's earnings, analysts said.

    I've falled off the Toshiba bandwagon because my DVD player was a POS and so was it's replacement. I know this has little to do with the article but it does make me wonder about Toshiba in general because I always thought of them as a reputable company with great, reasonably priced products, now I will no longer ever consider purchasing any more of their electronics.
