So are you saying that Kinect 2 in the Xbox One is not using PrimeSense's technology?Well they finally sold it. I'm from Israel and this company had a lot of potential back then when they showed the kinect.
They went for semi conductor way and lost their best client with the kinect 2 so 300+ seems like a good price.
I saw today that Microsoft tried to buy them but they declined.
Apple can do a lot with their technology, can't wait for it.
Perhaps you just notice it more because Israel has a lot of high-tech companies? I haven't seen any bias towards Israel on this matter.Relating to Apple's business, why do journalists always seem to be so excited to declare the nationality of the company in question when it is Israel vs when it is other countries? It's not only Macrumors, but other US tech bloggers too.
This is a genuine question, I'm not trying to make a point.
I'm in the UK and just wondering whether in the US there is significant interest in Israeli business activity, or whether it is Apple specific - possibly because Apple didn't make any Israeli-based company acquisitions whilst Syrian-born Jobs at the helm? Or something else?
So not only are you assuming how Apple will use the technology, but you're also passing judgment on it even though you have no idea if a) it's true, b) if and how it will be implemented, c) have tried it yourself. Lmao. Scary.
And it's often the brightest employees that leave - they want the small company atmosphere/ethics and don't want to just be a cog in a huge machine like Apple. Often the companies are left with the employees they don't want, while the good ones are gone. All they wind up with is the IP and patents.It actually makes sense for AAPL to give them stock shares, because it will be an incentive for the Kinect programmers and original engineers to stick around for some time under Apple. You do realize that when small companies are acquired, many disgruntled employees leave soon after, right?
And Apple makes us lazy.
That is so unrealistic. The remote is always around.
If you are laying on a side, how are you going to wave your hands?
or if you are with our girlfriend all cuddle... waving your hands sabotages all.
Why waving your hands when you already can move just one finger?
Now, if Apple is into that, I believe they lost the train regarding Apple TV, I do not see innovation anymore that is not out there already.
Sounds good to me! I'd love to have a hands-off interface. Repetitive Stress Injuries are a real thing. The less I have to move the mouse and click and type all day, the better. We're years off from that though.4. No no no no moving at all is too much, just sit there like a vegetable and think your computer to do things and your thoughts will control the cursor on screen.
Cheers for the feedback.Perhaps you just notice it more because Israel has a lot of high-tech companies? I haven't seen any bias towards Israel on this matter.
Jobs wasn't born in Syria, he was born in San Francisco. Yes, his biological father was Syrian, but according to his biography Steve wasn't very concerned with Syrian issues. I don't think he ever saw himself as "Syrian", just American.
Back in the day, I had to get up and turn something called a "knob." Then again, I had four choices of channels: ABC, CBS, NBC, and one local (Kansas City) UHF channel. Channel surfing was easy then.Then use the damn remote. Simple. People get so locked in like there is only one way to do some thing.
It is interesting, and you might have a valid point. I didn't even know Evi was British, but I never saw them market themselves that way. Perhaps there are more Israeli companies that like to put their nationality front-and-center? I can't think of why journalists would specifically single that out.Cheers for the feedback.
I just don't notice the nationality of the company mentioned generally - seemingly unless it's Israel. So I was curious if there was specific interest for any reason (e.g. no mention of British in the story of the Evi acquisition - but all over nationality for this article, Cue, Anobit, Waze - all Israeli).
I actually think it's interesting and relevant, from a global technologist viewpoint at least, to make note of nationality for all such M&A and significant startup news.
Who are you to judge which gender or age group should be able to play video games?I'm still wondering why a 30+ year old white yuppie mother is playing a video game. Really trying hard to market that thing as a family/household device aren't they? It couldn't possibly be allowed in the living room unless the wife approves.
