Helmdawg, umm... I wrote that article on BGR a while back and yes it was 100% factual. Going through the trouble to fake those screenshots, especially the one of the file browser, would be a little too much for my level of laziness.
126.96.36.199 is the latest I've seen evidence of ...for the Curve devices (8320 and 8310) and Bold. The version in the article was 188.8.131.52, if I remember correctly.
This thread was made to take a pot-shot at WorldIRC, who has since changed his profile information to 184.108.40.206 rather than being shamed about previously updating it to a version that did not exist in order to make himself look 'cool'. At this point, he's apparently trying to remove some of that would-be shame by updating it to yet another version that doesn't exist on a device that doesn't exist. Kind of like a kid with no friends making fun of a fat kid just so the other kids would stop pointing and laughing at him.
