Rumor Roundup: HTC Prime Smartphones? Goldberg in the WWE? 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:

Transformer Primes
  • Is the Next HTC Phone Going to Be Called "Prime"?
    The only technologically advanced "Prime" that I care about is an Autobot leader who goes by the name of ... Rodimus. #TeamRodimus (Why isn't the Optimus / Rodimus debate a bigger deal online? Or am I just not watching the right blogs?) [Ubergizmo]

  • Are Apple's Next-Gen EarPods Going to Be Biometric Sensors, Too?
    They're listening to your heart beats while you listen to phat beats. [MacRumors]

Goldberg as Goldberg
  • Is Goldberg Returning to the WWE?
    Look, no one thought she'd be good on Star Trek: The Next Generation, either, but that turned out OK! [Cage Side Seats]

  • Does the Amazon Phone Look Like an iPhone Knockoff?
    Doesn't all tech these days just look like cheap Apple knockoffs? (According to Apple and Apple fans, at least?) [Mobile Burn]

Framily Hamster
  • Is Sprint Going to Buy T-Mobile?
    No layoffs are expected; but when Sprint sends all their new employees a "Welcome to the FRAMILY!" email signed by the hamster in the ball (from the commercials), they'll all immediately quit.
    FUN FACT: The hamster is voiced by Andrew Dice Clay. OOOOOHHHHH! [Ubergizmo]

  • Will Windows 9 Arrive Next Year?
    Yes, in a stunning move, they have decided to go "consecutive" with their numbering. It's yet another shockingly blatant rip-off Apple (who also numbers their OSes consecutively.) [ValueWalk]
