Rumor Roundup: Is Harry Potter a Villain? Giant iWatches? 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:

Bond Harry Bond
  • Is Daniel Radcliffe Going to Be the Next Bond Villain?
    "No, Mr Bond! I expect you to avada kedavra!" [VC Post]

  • Is Nintendo Readying a Netflix-Like Virtual Console Subscription Service?
    Because the only thing better than paying $10 to play an old title is paying $10 per month to play old titles. [Attack of the Fanboy]

Another iWatch Concept
  • Will Apple's iWatch Come in 2 Sizes?
    One is the standard, "Look at how big my watch is, I really like time" size that most watches are these days, and the smaller size is an iPad mini with a leather strap and a clock app. [Apple Insider]

  • Will Microsoft's Voice-Based Personal Assistant, Cortana, Be Baked Into the Next Windows OS?
    It'll also completely replace the start button, probably. [Ubergizmo]

TMNT Xbox Game
  • Is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Game Headed to the Xbox One?
    Parents groups will lobby against it, saying it makes kids want to "karate chop" everything. I say, we can't afford to have a generation grow up unprepared to fight invading Shredders. [IGN]

  • Will the Next-Gen iPhone Have a 2.0 GHz CPU Inside?
    That's as fast as a top-of-the-line desktop computer (in 2001)! [App Picker]
