Rumor Roundup: How Expensive Will the Apple Watch Be?


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 Watch Gold
  • Could the Apple Watch Cost Up to $1,200?
    That's assuming all of the parts that can be made of 18-karat gold, are! This is not a joke, but the actual reasoning! [Gotta Be Mobile]

  • Is Google Working on a Laptop / Tablet Hybrid That Will Run Android and Chrome OS?
    Wow! Android has found a way to fragment its OSes on one device. Now that takes skill. [Android Headlines]

Food Photographer
  • Is Google Working on a New Social Network That's Exclusively for Pictures of Your Food?

  • Will You Soon Be Able to Complete In-Store Google Wallet Payments by Speaking Your Initials?
    I think it'll go something... like this:
    "That'll be $15.67."
    "J. S."
    "Was that F or S?"
    "A. S.?"
    "A. J. Got it."
    "Do you still accept cash?"
    "No, this is the future."
    Then one of us openly weeps for about an hour.

Mortal Kombat Predator
  • Will the Predator Be a Playable Character in Mortal Kombat X?
    Another unlockable character? Chris Hansen. "Mortal Kombat: To Catch a Predator". [Gamespresso]

  • Is Snapchat Going to Add a Music Service to Its App?
    The songs will only play for a set amount of time, then auto-delete themselves. (And everyone who finds out you use the service will still assume you're some kind of pervert.) [LA Times]
