Discount PC provider Microworkz has gone out of business, company chairman Rick Latman has confirmed.
Sources at the company earlier stated that Microworkz was trying to sell the intellectual property behind the iToaster, a low cost Internet appliance that never made it to market.
Although it is closing shop, the company’s troubles may be far from over. The Washington state attorney general has filed suit on behalf of 95 consumers who claim that they never received computers or refunds. EarthLink, a former strategic partner, also has a lawsuit pending.
