Hehehee... this is only getting better. The truth is that JTS has sold of
everything related to Atari to this company including TOS etc. As they
probably not give a damn about any TOS boxes but I guess someone else should
be able to buy that part realy cheap as they didn't pay much for the whole
Atari in the first place.

I would think that they bought Atari in order to use the name on a new
games console. Apparently they have been working for a games console for
ages but never managed to release anything and they have a smimilar product
to the Lynx, but the Lynx is still much better. All they are interrested in
are toys so who cares?
