Power to the people

Microsoft is angry (What a surprise). They're angry because tinkerers and hackers are taking the amazing technology available in the Kinect device and using it for purposes other than gaming.

They need to get over it. People are always finding new ways to use existing products. It has been a big part of the innovation process. And no amount of hand-wringing and lawsuit-threatening by Microsoft is going to stop it.

If you want people to love you and your product, let them use it how they want to use it, not as you intended them to, then learn from them.
