Rumor Roundup: Lindsay Lohan Passed on The Avengers? Google Wireless?


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:

Avengers with Lohan
  • Was Lindsay Lohan Almost in The Avengers?
    Yes, but luckily security found her before the cameras started rolling. []

  • Will the Upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition Have 40 Possible Endings?
    OMG, just like real life! []

  • Will Silver, the Next Version of Android, End Fragmentation?
    Yep, end fragmentation by introducing a new fragment. QED. [Ubergizmo]

Flintstone's record player
  • Is Twitter Going to Launch a Music Service?
    Wait, I'm just now being told it's a relaunch?! Can you relaunch a product no one's heard of? #JustPlayin (Which is what Twittter Music didn't do ... play. Music.) [Ubergizmo]

  • Is Google Getting Into the Wireless Carrier Business?
    Hate the customer service you receive from your current tel-co? Just wait until the online-only "help" directs you to a forum post by GooGuy187! "Did this answer your question? Yes / No" [The Verge]

  • Is Google Now Getting the Ability to Set Timers Via Voice Command?
    And with that, the Singularity is reached. Star Babies everywhere. [The Droid Guy]

@ba1onypony Aw, shucks!
I thought it was an interesting random fact. At least you're not forced to read it; if you clicked and read the full shpill that's your deal... I've seen writers on other sites....compared to them these guys are not only good, They'rrre GrrrREAT! ;)

Trust me, if it weren't for the The Avengers connection, I'd never have uttered the word "Lohan". (Unless it's as a play on words - or pun - of the title of the Adam Sandler movie "Don't Mess With The Zohan".)

@HeyTiger We only report on celebrity news when it overlaps with nerd news. It's a very fine balance.
Please, no celebrity news. Seriously, please.
