Rumor Roundup: Cheap iPhone? Fallout: Boston? 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 the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

  • Fallout 4 to Take Place in Post-Apocalyptic Boston?
    How can you tell the difference?! HAHAHAHA! ... I'll see myself out, shall I? [International Digital Times]

  • Apple Will Announce a Lower-Priced iPhone?
    To compete with that excessively high price of $0 for an iPhone 4. Finally, some relief on our wallets, so we can buy those luxury goods that we don't really need! [Wall Street Journal]

  • Next-Gen Apple Computers Will Include Next-Gen Wireless Technology?
    Called 802.11ac, this "5G" wireless spec can transmit information at up to 1.3Gbps. For reference, that's almost five times faster than your ISP can deliver data to your door. You know what else isn't really a good brag? That I can spend money faster than I make it. [PC Magazine]

  • Blizzard Releasing a Linux Game?
    Sudo apt-get, wow! A bold move by Blizzard to open up its game to nerds. [Complex Gaming]

Jeff Somogyi is the dealnews Media Editor. He once spent a couple afternoons trying to load a wireless driver into Linux. He's vowed to never be fooled by that OS again. See more of what is dead to him on Google+, Twitter, or on his blog.
