(Editorial) Kinect Wants To Take Over The World
We all love Kinect right? No? WELL TOO BAD! Because Microsoft wants to use Kinect to take over the world, starting with (are you ready for this?) Kinect for your computer.
I know this is old news, but the folks at ScrewAttack seemed to have overlooked this, so why not? Microsoft has realeased a SECOND beta for a program in which you can use Kinect with Microsoft Windows. What could you possibly use it for? Here's what Craig Esler, general Manager of Kinect for Windows says,
So, in my opinion, that vauge quote means that they don't really care if the program makes your computer hard to use. They only care about the people using Kinect to run a buisness so that we can reap the rewards for every single one of those glorious products sold.
So, yeah, you can probably understand my feelings on the subject, but if you stupid want the thing you cna download the beta here (http://www.kinectforwindows.org/) or you can wait for the finished product in early 2012.
That's just how the quote sounded to me. And if you click the source, in that blog post Craig Esler only talked about the use companies could have with kinect, not anyone else. But I made changes to accomadate your guys thoughts. Again, thanks for the feedback.
I don't think you offended anyone but I think Ferret and I were certainly taken aback by the way it came off based off what Microsoft actually said.
I wrote a comment in response to you and Ferret75, but since it was addresing two people, I couldn't make it a reply without it looking like I was spamming.
Ferret75, I'm sorry if I offended you about calling someone stupid for wanting to try it. I wrote a comment about it but it wasn't a reply so you couldn't have found out.
@Ferret 75 and cabose_-1. Wow. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. I just thought that a lot of people shared my sentiments on the subject. Also, I probably did make a pretty wild assumption there. I probably should've just said that it would make using your computer harder. With the corporations thing, that's just how the quote sounded to me. And I know that they announced it a while ago but I didn't see anything about it on ScrewAttack, so I figured, why not? If it will make you happy, I will some changes to my work. Thanks for the feedback!
You're making a very wild assumption. And someone's "stupid" for wanting to try it?
Also, it was announced that Kinect would be usable with Microsoft Windows a while ago.
Dude you're making really wild assumptions here. It seems to me that Microsoft saw the writing on the wall: that people aren't just using the Kinect for gaming. So instead of putting up more blocks to the software (like they do with most of their stuff) they're making the Kinect more available and easy to use so that people who are making these innovations with the Kinect have an easier time.
Nowhere in there did they talk about messing up your computer, that's simply your assumption.
Everybody's making their own motion sensing peripheral so...
