Rumor Roundup: Jim Carrey Is A Raccoon? iPhone "Math"? More?

By , dealnews Media Editor

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 to Announce a 4.8" iPhone Called "Math" in June?
    Because what's more fun than math?! (Shut up, Archimedes!) [PC Magazine]

  • Sony's New Controller Will Feature Biometrics and a Touchscreen?
    [PC Magazine]

  • iPhone 5S/6/Math Will Feature a Fingerprint Scanner?
    It will know your touch and react to it accordingly. (By slapping you across the face and then Siri will say, "Fresh!" and auto-dial the cops.) [Alaska Dispatch]

  • Google Terminating Nexus Q?
    I thought that cancelling shipments then never talking about the device again was a good indication that Google had already cancelled the orb-shaped streaming device. Man, anything can get a hardcore following, huh? That said, I'm @dzheough on Twitter! [Geeky Gadgets]

  • WWE Games Coming to 2K Sports?
    I guess 2K can smell what The Rock is cookin'! Is that even a relevant wrestling joke? I haven't watched wrestling since it was called WWF (back when they used to fight pandas!) [Kotaku]

  • Next-Gen Google Phone Will Be Shatter-Proof?
    Though, since it's essentially an artifact, it won't be Ancient Grudge-, Smelt-, Crumble-, or Naturalize-proof.

    Alternate joke for those who don't play Magic: The Gathering: Challenge accepted! [Mashable]

  • Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler Will Voice Rocket Raccoon In Guardians of The Galaxy?
    Look. The character is already a talking racoon that fights aliens in outer space. Getting a funny voice for him just feels like "guilding the lily" to me. #StathamForRocketRaccoon (Let's make that a thing!) [Comic Book Resources]

  • Jimmy Olsen Will Be a Woman in New Man of Steel Movie?
    What are the Spin Doctors going to do, now? Why won't anyone think of the Spin Doctors?!?! [Slash Film]
