Rumor Roundup: Mandatory Kinect? Delayed Batman? 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:

  • Next-Gen Xbox Console Will Require a Kinect Camera?
    It will be double plus ungood to disconnect it, too. [Kotaku]

  • Next Batman Movie in 2019?
    Can we afford such a prolonged absence? In The Dark Knight Rises, Batman was away for eight years, and just look what happened to Gotham! Will we survive seven years bat-less?! [SlashFilm]

  • Apple to Announce an iWatch?
    It doesn't keep better time, it just looks better doing it. Also, since I assume it's going to be "connected" in some way: Did you ever imagine paying a subscription fee for the time? Magical! [CNN]

  • Archos to Announce 3 Phones and a Tablet?
    Ah, Archos, the indie band of tech. (Always there for tech outsiders to have an option that is not the popular one.) [Android Authority]

  • Apple's iTV Coming in the Fall?
    Just in time for the new season of shows! ($1.99 each, on iTunes.) [MacRumors]

  • Apple Re-Architecting iOS?
    Putting in cantilevers and piloti. They'll call it iM-PEI. What a folly! (How well do architect jokes go over? Guess I'll find out!) [Apple INsider]
