Rumor Roundup: Does Han Shoot First, Again?


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:

Data Bezos Laughing
  • Did Amazon Spend $70 Million to License CryEngine?
    Is a "CryEngine" anything like the emotion chip that Dr. Soong built for Data? Evidence builds that Bezos is a robot. (No human could be that savvy!) [GamingBolt]

  • Will Apple Be Enforcing a One-Per-Customer Limit on Apple Watches?
    With prices starting at $349, I'll try to show some restraint. [TechnoBuffalo]

Greedo Shot First
  • Will Han Shoot First in the Digital Edition of Star Wars?
    What's disturbing is that, since the Special Edition came out in 1997, there are kids in college, right now, who grew up in a world in which Greedo always shot first. What's also disturbing is that there are older people to whom this is "a thing" that actually matters. [SlashFilm]

  • Will the Next iPhone Be the iPhone 7 and Not the iPhone 6S?
    Another bold and innovative move by Apple: skipping over their conventional naming system, which they totally made up, to go with the unconventional "numerical sequence"! It's "retro"! [Ubergizmo]

Fuller House
  • Is "Fuller House" the Name of the Upcoming Full House Sequel?
    Obviously, the show is set in a Dymaxion house. [Engadget]

  • Will AppleCare+ on the Apple Watch Cost Up to $999?
    Of course, that's for the ridiculous models that start around $10,000, so what's another grand on top of that, right? (If you answered "Right!", could I have some of your extra money? Send checks payable to "cash" c/o DealNews, please.) [Slashgear]
