Could this somehow be the firm that's supposedly designing the boards? Tom's just reselling them?

Or Tom's in over his head and needed SOMETHING to give to people to make them feel better?

That page is reselling BFL and Tom's boards and has taken pics from their respective sites. There's a crudely photshopped BFL Jally there as well. End of thread.

In all likelihood, the site updated its post (originally posted 9/23/12) with the images, now that they are out.  Unfortunately, the internet archive hasn't archived that page at all, so it cannot be confirmed that way.

EDIT:  Google cache confirms that the images were not in place as of Dec 2, 2012.

Wordpress shows when an image was uploaded in the image URL.

I believe that's just showing the date of the posting in which the images were uploaded to.

See my edit above.

Believe me, I'm no bASIC fan, but I don't believe they just pulled photos off of a random website like this, and google's cache seems to confirm that.

I don't see a 'shopped Jally anywhere. Their pre-order calls it a V4, and their newest update is Nov 30th, before Tom posted those renderings.

That page is old news and the rendering weren't on it when it was found and denounced as an obvious scam on bitcointalk months ago. And by the way, the text isn't even consistent with the renderings. The size is still 4" x 9" although the boards are nearly squares.

P2pool tuning guide
Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

Oh well. Carry on then.

Wordpress should definitely change this about image uploads.
