So it’s official, Guinness has crowned Kinect for XBOX 360 the “fastest selling consumer gadget of all time”.

It’s another major win for Microsoft in their quest to win by being second.

I am beginning to wonder if all the Microsoft haterz will ever begin to give credit where it is due.

Ok, so Microsoft does not (or cannot) innovate at the speed of light (ahem!), but by being a great watcher of others the Redmondian giant seems to consistently pick up second (or third) prize in the time to market stakes resulting in a clear first place in the sales and market share steeplechase.

Watch out Apple, Windows 8 will (almost) certainly be an iKiller…
