Update: Apple Didn’t Actually Buy Wi-Gear

File this one under “Aww”. Yesterday, there were reports by a source for 9 to 5 Mac that Apple had purchased wireless-headphone company Wi-Gear, but, as it turns out, the company is still for sale. The CEO, Mark Pundsack, issued this stament after the rumor took off:

“The rumor is false. Wi-Gear and its IP are still available for sale.”

It looks like we might not be getting futuristic wireless earbuds for a while, sorry to get your hopes up!

[9 to 5 Mac]
