It is telling that Apple's rejected kickstand looks better then the one Uncle Fester signed off on...
"Do you expect me to talk?"
If I had 2K of her shares and she had a feather up her ass... we both would be tickled.
The next question might be, "will this device be able to evaluate a fart for a person's GI tract health?" You may want to use it to find your best seat in an "open-seating" arena by pointing it at the rear ends of people already seated... Or to find who had just eaten a super-sized bean burrito before entering a room... Or, who is wearing clean underwear today... or other personal hormonal information information... nudge nudge...
Apple may have made these acquisitions to obtain ownership of the sensor patents. Irregardless, if Apple wants to enter the health/medicine arena, they will need to be plugged into the info network of what's going on etc.On another topic of privacy.

Here is an example of a few such "deals."1. Delayed billing for up to a year after shipment.2. Product "cosigned" to a retailer...
I really enjoyed my little 10-11" white MacBook when I was using it. Plenty big for anything I wanted to use it for... UNTIL I bought my current 15" MBP...
