Well, here´s the quote from the man himself, GaryOPA (like or not, he knows what´s going on behind the TB courtain):
here are the juicy parts (from http://www.ps3crunch.net/forum/threa...4118#post44118
I love the part about TB and E3 being the same, strange, since I have met both of them personally
, and they look totally different, have different names, don't even speak the same langs. and have totally different marketing and plans, all tho both at been each other back trying to out do each other since the early PS2 days.
The TB Dongle has already been stopped three times over the last year in production, and restarted with a new design, no reason not say this will not be the same case also.
Rumors are just Rumors nothing more, there been no official word or nothing, all I personally know is couple people are on short summer vacation after the last batch of eboots
and will be returning to their desks, refreshed and ready for action very soon.
(...) Also there been alot of work behind the scenes from three different groups in bringing finally some action to the ones that can't downgrade or are stuck on non-jailbreak-able market. -- The market for 3.55 is growing smaller everyday.
Here it his... we may not like it, but that the way it is...
