I know how these things work.

1) Everybody gets sent home in the morning and they are reminded of their NDA's.
2) Nobody will say Jack until they get their final paycheck, which may take a month or more.
3) After the pay check arrives some people will speak to friends so long as it remains anonymous.

We need someone who knows an employee, so we can find out what really happened.
Yeah, gcarroll, although he hasn't posted in this particular thread ever since it became clear that Vertex [insert your words here].

He posted a lot in this thread before - saying that he was friends with the "owner" of Vertex and even had dinner with him, etc.

Vertex is done and so is Jason. People got burned. I am not sure why you want to rub salt in everyone's wounds unless you are trying to boost the ego behind the screen.
Jason has not responded to Greg and seems like that they have parted ways. I have heard other rumors of Jason but I will keep these to myself as they are no longer relevant as Vertex has closed.

Probably the only thing to do is rip out the raspberry pi and throw everything else out.

For me my Gen 1 became unstable and unreliable so I dont know how much I would trust it. I have a Gen2 still in the box and hate the idea of throwing it away but im not sure what could be done with it

Don't throw it away, I am willing to buy it for a few bucks.
Do you have the SD card with the firmware on it. I hear that they can easily lose all of their memory and become a brick, so you need that SD card to reload the firmware. If your interested let me know.

Mine has the most current version that we got right before Christmas last year. I also still have the image saved on my computer if that was of help to you.
