Rumor Roundup: Gold iPhone? Wii U Bundling with Zelda? More?


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:

  • Will There Be a Gold iPhone?
    Conspiracy theory: Apple introduces a new color, but then we hear that they are having "production problems" causing people to have to wait for their phones. By doing this, all those people that would have bought a new, non-gold phone sit and wait patiently, rather than be upset that Apple couldn't fulfil their orders because they just couldn't produce enough iPhones. Once the production is ramped up, the initial surge of orders is through, then they'll miraculously "solve" the Gold iPhone problems. Not that they would ever do something so devious.... *cough* White iPhone 4 *endcough* [All Things D]

  • Will Nintendo Entice People to Buy a Wii U by Bundling It with the New Zelda Game?
    If that fails, Nintendo still has plenty of other tried and true properties to bundle the console with. Mario, Metroid, uh ... did we already say "Mario?" [Destructoid]

  • Is 'N Sync Getting Back Together?
    Personally, I do not want this. It tore me up the first time they broke up, I can't go through that again! [Washington Post]

  • Does the iPhone Have a Bigger Carbon Footprint Than a Refrigerator?
    Maybe, but making calls on a fridge is next to impossible and the data plans are nonexistent. [MarketWatch]

  • Did the Downton Abbey Estate Ban Dogs?
    To write her off the show, Isis will crash her car into a ditch. Tearjerker twist: She just had a litter of puppies with a wounded war-dog vet. ("Vet" as in "veteran;" I see how that could have been confusing.) [E! Online]

  • Will the iPhone 5C Retail for £230?
    That's roughly $358. This is Apple's version of "cheap." [Geeky Gadgets]
