I'm not sad about the news, at end of the day we've been lucky enough to have had access to well designed and efficient technology which isn't based on the design of the Cadillac - big and inefficient!

My old RISC PC, et al. in some respects is still way ahead in terms of technology than my current KILOWATT eating PC. It's just a pity that the creative people who designed and built it, couldn't find enough niche markets to sell into.

The saddest thing about today's world is that GREEN wash is being applied to everything, even PCs.

Anyway, well done to those who designed and built the IYONIX! You get a standing ovation from me!
