I can't see Toshiba throwing in the towel just yet but it's difficult to see how they can fight back from here.
As commented by Ben here is what was actually said:
Many now recall that Geldof said "Just give us the fucking money." However this is not true. He did say "People are dying NOW. Give us the money NOW. Give me the money now."

I'll put my hands up to mis-remembering the event as well.. It wasn't until i read this that i realised i was wrong
