This is the same basic tech that was used to track position on the old Nintendo Power Glove, and having used it and written drivers to interface it to a PC, it isn't accurate enough to work for anything finer grained than what's shown in the video. So if you want to control something using large, sweeping, ungainly hand gestures this is the tech you want.

Exactly. Could someone point me to a company forum that DOESN'T do this (that is actually run by the company)? I spend more time on guitar forums than computer forums, but the two guitar manufacturer forums I visit occasionally, Ibanez and Ernie Ball/Music Man, do the exact same thing.... and those are general discussion forums, the Apple forum in question is a technical support forum. So why exactly would you consider a Consumer Reports review something that should be discussed on a tech support forum?
I'll keep my Speakeasy thanks. I've had it for several years, am always at least in the ballpark of my rated speeds, and have had a grand total of about 8 hours of downtime. A friend of mine has Comcast cable and his service goes down all the time. He's actually had to argue with Comcast to convince them his service is down, then wait days for the problem to be fixed. Pass. I work from home and need my connection to be reliable.
Comcast can't even get my TV cards to work consistently, I really don't want them anywhere near my internet.
So am I the only one noticing the growing trend to vilify capitalism and individualism in this country? Last I checked self-determination and free market capitalism were some of the founding principles of this country, yet I'm increasingly seeing these traits being blamed for all of society's problems.

"Quite apart from the technical problems with OOXML, the main problem from OSIA's point of view is a substantive one — the 'standard' is designed so that it can only be implemented by a single vendor", said Brendan Scott, Director of Open Source Industry Australia. "So, while in theory a third party could create an independent implementation, in practice it is very unlikely", he said."
