    We've heard that in a recent email, Jack Lillingston of Iyonix Ltd and Castle Technologies Ltd. has announced that the Iyonix PC is to be no longer available for ordering from 30th September 2008 (only a few days from time of writing).  Iyonix Ltd (formed as a separate division by Castle to sell the hardware) will cease trading once existing stocks of hardware and accessories are exhausted.  There are apparently very limited stocks available, that can be supplied on a first come, first served basis until the 30th.
