Insane Rumor Roundup: Jeremy Lin? iPhone 5? Facebook?

By , dealnews Media Editor

Want to know the latest rumors that the Internet's been yim-yammering about this past week? Then read on:

  • Knicks Will Keep Jeremy Lin No Matter What It Costs?
    SOME might call this move ... insane. I mean, it's just incomprehensible that that they would insist on putting their entire team at risk for one singular player — albeit an insanely good one, but, come on! Let's stop the INSANITY! [HoopsVibe]

  • Next-Gen PlayStation Will Limit Used Game Play?
    Want to play an old title on your new device? You'll have to pony up some "unlock" cash. Yup. That sounds like a Sony-ish thing to do. (I have still not forgiven them for ATRAC.) [PCMag]

  • iPhone 5 Will Have an OLED Screen?
    Yep. Pinning the availability of your next flagship phone on Samsung's not-yet-fully-up-and-running manufacturing capabilities of OLED displays sounds like the safe bet. [MacObserver]

  • Facebook Chooses Nasdaq?
    NYSE is escorted out, into a waiting limo where they break down and tearfully ask, "What was wrong with ME?!" ABC has already announced that NYSE will be the next Bachelorette. [ZDNet]

  • Apple Developing a Game Controller for iOS Devices?
    After years of working to remove as many buttons as they can from computing, this comes along and adds many more? I'll bet the knowledge that even a prototype of such a device exists gives Johnny Ives a twitchy eye. [TouchArcade]

  • Next Rock Band Release Called "Rock Band Blitz"?
    In a startling departure from form, this game has you matching colored lights on-screen with your controller buttons to re-enact the bombing of London which took place from 1940 to 1941. Words used to be important, now they are just chosen because they sound good. Cellar door. [StickSkills]

  • Next-Gen Kindles Will Feature Glowing e-Ink?
    Grouch Marx once said, "Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." In the future, thanks in part to the Kindle, kids will not appreciate this joke. [TechCrunch]
