Citing an email from the company's CEO, Barron's reports that yesterday's claim that Bluetooth headphone company Wi-Gear has been acquired by Apple is incorrect.
"The rumor is false," Wi-Gear CEO Mark Pundsack said via e-mail in response to an inquiry from Tech Trader Daily. "Wi-Gear and its IP are still available for sale."
The confusion appears to have stemmed from a source offering inaccurate information and a LinkedIn profile showing one of Wi-Gear's founders now working for Apple being interpreted as the company itself having been acquired.

Too bad for Apple fans and Wi Gear.

It would be nice to see some solid Bluetooth headphones and headsets in the Apple line-up.

I wonder if Wi Gear will see a sales bump due to the publicity?

I guess this is why the site name is macrumors not macnews... seems to be a lot of speculation gone south lately..
