Rumor Roundup: Bye Bye Facebook Phone? Beige iPhone?

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 iPad mini 2 Coming in the Fall?
    I can't help but feel like, with all the new innovation announcements coming out of Google during their IO event, that another release date rumor from Apple is totes yawn-worthy. Where's the glitz, Apple rumors?! Where's the pizzaz?! *Jazz hands* [PC-Tablet]

  • The iPhone 5S Will Be Available in Gold and Beige? (pictured)
    I said "glitz," not "chintz"! Gold? Cheap! Beige? What are you, a 90s PC? [BGR]

  • Google Has Dropped Plans to Release a Google Wallet Credit Card?
    "Their pitch: It's like Google Wallet, but in the real world!" "I don't get it. So it's a credit card?" "NO no no! It's like Google wallet in the real world!" [Makes emphatic hand gestures] *Repeat* [UberGizmo]

  • Microsoft Ditching Xbox Points?
    No longer shall we divide by 80! [The Verge]

  • AT&T Will Discontinue the Facebook Phone?
    Asking people to jump aboard a new, untested, beta OS was ridiculous when Android did it. "Please set your expectations for an OS back by several years as we try and get this Facebook Home thing right, OK?" [TechCrunch]

  • Creator Dan Harmon Returning to Community?
    If so, his first course of action is to find a way of retconning last season into not existing. An alternate timeline, perhaps? "The Blandest Timeline?" [Deadline]
