Rumor Roundup: Joaquin Strange? iPhone 6 Release Dates? 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:

Joaquin Strange

    He's got the strange part down-pat, amiright?! PLOT: Doctor Strange makes an appearance on Letterman. Sporting a beard and glasses, he says nothing. [The Mary Sue]

    Aw, for a second there, I thought it said UFC. (My phone grapples me to the ground; I tap out.) [Cult Of Mac]

iPhone 6es
  • Is Apple Going Have Two Release Dates For The iPhone 6?

Bottom line!!! [Mashable]
