Rumor Roundup: Is an Obi Wan Kenobi Movie in the Works?


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:

Moto X
  • Is Motorola's Next-Gen Moto X Smartphone Called the "Pure Edition"?
    Do you know the street value of pure, uncut Android? $500 (Or about $98/oz.) [The Verge]

  • Is Google About to Buy a 40% Stake in eBay?
    L@@K! RARE Stakes for 40% off. [BenZinga]

  • Is Microsoft Working on the Ability to Play Xbox Games Through a Web Browser?
    Coach: Awright, Internet Explorer! Let's see what you got! Get your butt in there!
    IE stands from the bench, crowd starts chanting "I-E! I-E! I-E!"
    IE dons his helmet, run out onto field.
    Silverlight crashes.
    Crowd laughs.

  • Will the New MacBooks Be Available in More Colors Than "Aluminum"?
    Aping the iPhones, they're purported to come in slate gray, silver, and gold. Aping an ape, they'll probably employ Gorilla glass for the screens, too. APE-le Computers! [Mashable]

Obi Wan Kenobi
  • Is an Obi Wan Kenobi Film Being Written?
    Rumors are what gives a Jedi his power. They surround us and penetrates us. They bind the galaxy together. Well, either that or Midi-chlorians. [Slash Film]

  • Is the Marvel Avengers Alliance Facebook Game Being Shut Down at the End of the Year?
    This is based only on the fact that they have not announced anything new since SDCC ... which was less than two months ago. I'd call these Avengers nerds impatient, but since I base my food court meal choices on which stand has the shortest line, I'm not really one to judge. [iDigitalTimes]
