Rumor Roundup: New Spider-Man 2 Titles? Apple iWatches? PS4 Driveclub?


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:

  • Will Apple's iWatch Include Home Automation Functions?
    You say, "Siri! Turn on my lights!" but instead she'll hold you captive, Demon Seed-style. #Koontz [Geeky Gadgets]

  • Is the Upcoming PlayStation 4 Game, Driveclub, on Hold?
    Ugh! What's the first rule of Driveclub?! Don't talk about the release date of Driveclub! [joystiq]
  • Sony Still Doesn't Know What to Call the Amazing Spider-Man 2?
    They are testing The Amazing Spider-Man: The Price of Power and The Amazing Spider-Man: With Great Power. Not up for contention are The Amazing Spider-Man: Electric Boogaloo, The Amazing Spider-Man: Ghost Protocol, or The Amazing Spider-Man: Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning. Hey! What about, The Amazing Spider-Man 2? Too easy to remember?! [Slash Film]

  • Home Depot Will Sell PlayStation 4 Consoles?
    "Hi, Sir. I'm a Home Depot Help Specialist. How can I help?" "Yes, I need to know which type of wood I should get for building an outdoor patio. Also, I need some cheat codes for Driveclub." "Okay. Firstly, you can go with either pressure-treated, weather resistant 2"x8"s or we have a host of synthetic wood options that look great. Secondly, don't talk about Driveclub!" [Consumerist]

  • Is a Lord of the Rings Land Opening in Disney World?
    The lines go ever ever on, over rock and under tree, by caves where never sun has shone, by streams that never find the sea. Over snow by winter sown, and through the merry flowers of June, over grass and over stone, and under mountains in the moon. The lines go ever on and on. [Slash Film]
  • Is Twitter Working on a Messaging App?
    Use Twitter to hold private conversations?! But Twitter is where I go to hold sub-tweet convos with my friends live in public so we can spam up all of our followers' feeds! [Digital Journal]

  • Is Google's Smartwatch Almost Ready?
    Well, as "ready" as any first-gen Google product ever is; it'll be "beta" and broken for years, possibly with an invite system that keeps it out of the hands of "regular" people for quite some time. [Mashable]
