Now here's an interesting rumor: Although Microsoft already owns its Kinect technology, the Israeli company that created it could soon find itself with a new corporate address in Cupertino, California.
Sony may have been rounded criticized for announcing the PlayStation 4 without so much as a look at the hardware months ago, but they finally made good at E3, where Microsoft also pinned a price tag on the upcoming Xbox One.
When Microsoft created the Kinect video game controller, they probably didn't have the Mac in mind for one of the systems it might be able to control. However, a developer by the name of Theo Watson has taken it upon himself to create the software necessary to hookup the camera-based controller to the Mac.
Microsoft confirmed last Friday that CEO Steve Ballmer plans to sell nearly one-fifth of his shares of the company, valued at $1.3 billion. Meanwhile, the company’s Kinect gaming technology apparently went to Apple first, but the creator of the technology found them difficult to work with.
There's no doubt about the success of the Xbox, but Microsoft's latest claim might have some scratching their heads. First it's iPhone "funerals," and now they're making some pretty bold claims about Kinect sales.
