Rumor Roundup: Is This the iPhone 6s Plus Box? Peter Cushing Rises?


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:

iPhone 6s Plus Box
  • Is This (Above) the Box for the iPhone 6s Plus?
    Some will see a flower, others will see a fish. Guys! This box is the next blue/gold dress! Gonna take the Internet by storm. [Mac Rumors]

  • Is an "iPad Pro" on the Way?
    Once it goes pro, it can no longer compete in the Olympics, right? (Or did they rescind that rule, so that the US could have "The Dream Team" (which would later go on to battle basketball aliens in space. True story! Watch the documentary Space Jam.) [Fox News]

Grand Moff Tarkin
  • Will Peter Cushing Appear in the Upcoming Star Wars Film, Despite Being Dead?
    Using CGI and clever editing, we'll never have to say goodbye to old celebs. Nor will we have to give jobs to new, up-and-coming actors. Can't wait for the Diet Coke commercial starring Groucho Marx ... oh, wait. [Blastr]

  • Will the iPhone 7 Be Available in Pink?
    P!NK could not be reached for comment about this blatant infringement; and Pinky (of "... and The Brain" fame) has no idea how to use a telephone. Poit. [Network World]

Einstein Insanity Quote
  • Will the Next BlackBerry Run Android and Have a Slide-Out Keyboard?
    Yep, keep trying the whole physical keyboard thing. Maybe your lightning will finally strike twice! [Tech Report]

  • Will There Be Two Versions of Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 Tablet?
    One that the general public won't care about ... and a second model that we also won't care about. (I heard there's going to be an Apple "Pro"?!) [Win Beta]
