Rumor Roundup: Apple Buys Color? iPhone Time Troubles? More?

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 of its lies and speculations and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

  • Apple Bought Photo Sharing and Social Network App Company, Color?
    "OK! OK! Last time our social features were a failure because it was only based around music. Who listens to music anyway, amiright?! This time it's only photos, but I think it'll work!" —The Apple intern put in charge of social features [SocialNewsDaily]

  • iPhone 5 Having Trouble Keeping Time?
    First it had map trouble telling you where you were, now it has trouble telling you when it is. Maybe the iPhone 5 is disassociated from time AND space. Like a TARDIS. That makes it sound cool. [InRumor]

  • Google's Nexus 10 Tablet Will Have the Most Pixels of All?
    Isn't it weird that "pixelated" doesn't mean "having the most pixels?" It used to mean "drunk" in old slang. "Which tablet is the most pixelated?" That's what I'd like to know! (Probably the PlayBook, right? It has the most excuse to drink.) [ZDNet]

Jeff Somogyi is the dealnews Media Editor. He got mega-pixelated once, back in college. He's never touched a DSLR camera again. See more of his wordplay on Google+, Twitter or on his blog.
