OpenTech Becomes ClosedTech

As reported by WIRED:

Just three weeks after its official Mac-clone product launch, Open Tech said its company was up for sale.
Open Tech [VP] Elijah Samaroo on Saturday night sent an e-mail to Wired.com that said, "Open Tech is For sale. This includes all trade secrets and brand equity. Thank you for tour time." (Note the typo.) OpenTech's web store, where originally you could order a Mac clone, has been replaced with a sales ad for the entire company -- for $50,000, which you can even shell out through PayPal.
