It was a small operation that produced great products. I also don't know why they failed, or perhaps "failed" is a poor 
word here, small operations can get shut down simply because a principal decides to do something else, it doesn't 
necessarily mean the operation was a financial failure.

There are a lot of things involved in operating a business like MyTV was, many of them have nothing to do with the quality 
of the products being offered. Government paperwork, tax issues, paying Social Security and taxes for any employees 
involved, problems with suppliers, the list is endless. Perhaps he got sued because his water fountain didn't meet ADA 
requirements (don't laugh, it happened to someone I know).

But I often check e-bay as well, I'd certainly pick up 2 or 3 extras in a heartbeat, even at twice or thrice what I 
originally paid.

I wonder if someone could just start building them in a basement, I'm sure many could be sold quickly.
