Games Ah, Microsoft's Kinect. Now that the technology has been released into the wild, one thing becomes clear: hackers and programmers love it. It's already been hacked to work on Linux and the Mac, and the first interesting hobby projects are starting to appear. Since Microsoft has already stated it's selling Kinect at a profit, I'm going to make a bold statement: Microsoft is loving the hackery. Update: Turns out I was right - Microsoft has stated that Kinect was left open by design.

They have to disapprove to ward off possible claims if someone like blows up his Kinect in the process.

Not to mention keeping investors and shareholders happy.

Just like antivirus companies who publicly denounce virus writing black hats as criminals, but within the company walls they are quite happy that the black hats are keeping them in business.
