This reads like taken verbatim from Jason Hou's story (before the comma) and enriched by some KennyR delusions (after the comma) :-)

Considering that the FC-31/J-31 does fly, it may be concluded they didn't use stolen Aureate/Articia technology ;-)
On the other hand, the identified chipset bugs
may be non-issues for an aircraft cockpit display control system with supposedly only limited PCI bus load.
> They attempt to sell it as a "Hackintosh" board
Nobody ever attempted to sell a Teron board as a "Hackintosh" board. The idea doesn't make any sense given that no version of Mac OS can be run on such board.
> Eyetech […] unwittingly taking part in a Chinese government
> attempt to steal US military technology.
So you think Jason Hou's story is true, even when Michael Coe's research says it isn't and it was Hou himself who in 2003 presented his products to Chinese government and military officials and in 2004 sold his technology to Chinese company ARC-9?
> IBM find out and ditch Mai from their partners list
IBM listed Mai Logic and its products as "Ready for IBM Technology" at least as long as the Wayback Machine crawled that webpage
, which was until mid-2008.
> and the company mysteriously disappears.
According to Hou/Fukada, "the sophisticated business attacks […] orchestrated by Mr. Chiao [of Winbond and SMIC] led to Atum's bankruptcy in 2004 and Mai Logic's in 2005." :-)
