Rumor Roundup: 3 Million Copies of GTA V? The Rock? iOS 7?


By , dealnews Media Editor

When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

  • 3 Million Copies of Grand Theft Auto V Have Been Ordered for Sale in the UK?
    Considering the United Kingdom has about 63 million inhabitants, what are the other 60 million going to do? (Eat a biscuit and re-adjust their braces, probably...) [CVG]

  • Dwayne Johnson to Star in Terminator 5?
    Can you smell what the Terminator is cookin'?! (These jokes are beginning to show my age. The Rock's cooking show hasn't be on TV in years!) [SlashFilm]

  • Facebook Working on a Flipboard-like News Reader App?
    So instead of scrolling past pictures of your friends' ugly babies, you can flip past them! [The Inquisitor]

  • Google Working on a Craigslist / Pinterest / GDGT App?
    It will let you tell all your friends what you own, what you want to sell, and enable ratings for those things, too. This will all be shared via Google+ and it's called "Of All Your Friends, Rob Me First." [Ars Technica]

  • iOS 7 Can Be Controlled with Head Movements?
    "All I did was listen to one Metallica song and all my contacts were deleted!" (Because "headbanging," you see.) [InRumor]

  • Windows 8.1 Will Use Skype Exclusively Over Messenger?
    So ... that's a thing, huh? Feel free to move on. [UberGizmo]
