Thankfully, PB is now officially dead. They had an auction a month
or so back, and the entire Califonia plant/office was liquidated. This
included inventory, components, chairs, lights, desks......

They tried to buy some reputation a couple of years back when
they bought NEC, but a PB by any other name........

NEC continues on, I believe.
