Rumor Roundup: Apple's iTV to Feature Siri? Xbox Fitness?

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:

  • Apple's iTV Will Have Siri Built-in?
    "Siri? Find me something good on TV."

  • Apple to Sell an iPad Mini with 8GB of Storage for $200?
    With the size and price the same, how is this different from an entry-level iPod? Well, it has a larger screen with a better resolution, of course! And we all know that Apple is totally in the business of their products not filling a specialized, non-competing niche with one another. Unless they drop the iPod line all together, this makes no sense. [CNET]

  • Were the Wii U Launch Titles Leaked?
    It's clear that Nintendo is courting the "serious gamer" with titles such as "Batman: Arkham City," "Assassin's Creed," and "Just Dance 4." Everyone knows that "serious gamers" play older titles and like to get down. [GoNintendo]

  • $799 MacBook Air Coming to Compete in the "Ultrabook" Market?
    Look, if 30 years of setting each of their products at a ridiculously high price is not enough to convince you that this is just what Apple does and that they are not remotely interested in what other manufacturers do, I don't know what will. [MacObserver]

  • Kinect Play Fit Will Track Your Exercise on the Xbox?
    "Doc, I just don't understand how I could need more exercise! I mean, I get at least 30 minutes on the Xbox every day!" [The Verge]
