Rumor Roundup: Lip-Reading Kinect 2? Apple TV to Be Twice as Expensive?

By , dealnews Media Editor

Kick back and enjoy a warm cup of rumors.

  • Kinect 2 Will Read Your Lips?
    All the "no new taxes" jokes out of the way? Good. Still working on the "pod bay doors, HAL" jokes? I understand. Call me when you're done. [EuroGamer]

  • Google to Offer Amazon Prime-like Shipping?
    The only hitch I can see to this plan is that Google doesn't actually sell anything. Is Google just being competitive for competition's sake, now? This is not something they can, nor should try to compete with. It's tilting at windmills! "Yeah? Well, Google can do the Kessel run in eleven parsecs!" I'll have to take your word on that. [DigitalTrends]

  • iPhone 5 and iPad 3 Will Use 4G Connectivity?
    This is totally unlike the last batch of similar rumors in that this one is new. And the truth is always new. QED! [Tom's Guide]

  • Facebook Looking to Get Into Online Gambling?
    And not just with your privacy! Zing! But, serisouly, ZDNet says that Europe can look forward to a future in which Facebook is synonymous with a gambling addiction.

  • Resident Evil 6 Set in China?
    Ah! The final frontier of potentially racist stereotype characters has been reached. Where do you go from here, Capcom? Where do you go from here? [GamingBlend]

  • Apple TV Sets Will be Twice as Expensive as Regular TVs? (pictured?)
    You know ... for "convenience." [CNET]
