Rumor Roundup: Mr. Scott Will Be in Star Wars? Apple Kills the Headphones?


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:

Simon Pegg C3-PO
  • Does Simon Pegg Have A Surprise Appearance In The New Star Wars Film?
    But he played Scotty in Star Trek! How on Earth are we, the movie-going audience, supposed to stand for an actor playing two different roles in two different movies?! It's ridiculous! It's like when they tried to make us believe that Wade "Deadpool" Wilson was also Green Lantern. Uh ... what?! Fix this, Hollywood! [Indiewire]

  • Is Google About To Invest In Virgin Galactic?
    This lends credence to my theory that Sergey Brin and Larry Page are too smart to be actual humans, and are now preparing to go back home. [GeekyGadgets]

George RR MEMEtin
  • Will There Be An Eighth Game Of Thrones Book?
    Yay, we get to have another 3K+ pages to get to like some character that will ultimately die! Horrifically. [Entertainment Weekly]

  • Was A New Apple Maps Supposed To Debut At WWDC?
    But, due to poor planning, and near-sighted management, it missed its chance to shine. One might say that the design team lost their ... direction! (And they all ended up in a lake. Several died. Why are you laughing?) [Mobile Burn]

Batman Vs. Superman
  • Will LexCorp Be A "Sexy", "Edgy" "Start-Up" In The Next Superman Movie?
    It's not hard to imagine Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg, hatching an evil plan to create the world's greatest social network, so he can destroy Superman by excluding him and tearing him apart with feelings of alienation. (Cuz, he's ALSO an alien.) []

  • Is Apple Thinking About Getting Rid Of The Headphone Port On Its New iPhones?
    People are super mad about this, because there's no way Apple is going to give current, standard-jack headphone users an adapter to buy that let's them use any headphone they want ... for $39.99. [NY Daily News]
