        This impending “shortage” may be a self-fulfilling prophecy. Like the Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 2020. And with much the same causal chain.

        Just keep telling people the prices are going to continue to skyrocket and the supplies are going to continue to languish. Create a hoarders’ market, and everyone overbuy massively. Presto! Your shortage and prolonged price gouging materialize right before our eyes. And anyone with some cash invested in the hardware, the stocks and options, as well as anyone with a hoarded stash, makes more money than a Lysol seller on eBay.

        Shocking that AskWoody would run such an article! And even more shocking that such practices still work on Sheeple.

        As someone who may need to replace an aging modest sized consumer grade SSD in my Intel NUC this year, I do have an interest in this topic. But I do NOT need this kind of scare-mongering. Neither does anyone else!
