Virgin Electronics is dead

Virgin 5GB MP3 player

Yep, Virgin Electronics is dead. We've just gotten confirmation from their PR rep that the company failed to receive additional funding from parent Virgin Group and that they're quietly discontinuing all of their product lines (mainly MP3 players and portable speakers). They definitely did not get all sentimental about ending things—it's only been about five months since they first introduced their 5GB MP3 Player, so we're guessing sales must have been way, way worse than they'd expected. Anyway, if you did happen to buy one of their products, the rep made it clear that they will continue honor all warranties.
