Rumor Roundup: An Even Thinner iPad mini? Tremors Reboot? More?


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:

Thin As A Pencil
  • Will The Next-Gen iPad mini Be 30% Thinner Than The Current Model?
    Since the current iPad mini is only 0.29" thick, that means the next-gen is going to be only 0.2" thick! That's thinner than a human hair! (Or not, we're on the metric system and don't understand "inches.") [Cult Of Mac]

  • Is Nintendo Working On "Diddy Kong Racing 2"?
    Weird. It's so unlike Nintendo to crank out sequels ... of spin offs ... of their very first hit property. [Attack Of The Fanboy]

Kevin Bacon in Tremors
  • Is A Tremors Reboot In The Works?
    Seeing this movie does not get you one degree closer to Kevin Bacon. [Movie Pilot]

  • Will iPhone 6 Notifications Make The Apple Logo Light Up?
    More like, "It'll make my eyes light up!" Sorry, Android, the iPhone now has the one feature I've been holding out for. [PC Mag]

Fido Dido
  • Is Swatch Denying That They Are Building An iWatch For Apple?
    Other iWatch deniers: Fido Dido will not be the iWacth spokestoon; Vanilla Ice will not write / perform the iWatch movie theme; and Dan Cortese will not host the MTV Rock 'n Jock iWatch Jam. [Apple Insider]

  • Is Nintendo Rereleasing "The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask" For The 3DS?
    Weird. It's so unlike Nintendo to crank out rereleases ... of sequels... of one of their first hit properties. #CallBack [Gameranx]
