Apple has been quite quiet on the innovation front as of late, and no, the Mac Pro isn’t revolutionary or really that innovative. So, what do they do to change that? Why not buy PrimeSense to create an industry leading motion sensor and gesture system? According to Calcalist, an Israel-based news outlet, Apple and PrimeSense are in the very early stages of acquisition talks, which according to their source could be in the range of $280 million. If it pans out, the acquisition could strengthen Apple’s portfolio of sneaky, but smart purchases.
