Rumor Roundup: Next-Gen Moto 360? Dual Camera iPhone? More?


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:

Microsoft Band
  • Is Microsoft Having a Hard Time Keeping Their Wearable Device, Band, In Stock?
    Everyone is snidely suggesting that Microsoft is forcing this scarcity by not producing enough of them. This is because we now live in a world where we cannot imagine Microsoft creating anything that people actually want to use. [Upstart Business Journals]

  • Will Facebook for Business Be Like Facebook ... But for Business?
    It's purportedly a LinkedIn competitor, aimed at creating a work networking platform. It'll now be a fireable offence to unfriend your boss. [Ubergizmo]

Moto 360
  • Will the Second Generation Moto 360 Wearable Device Be Available in 2015?
    Be honest, you had no idea there was a first generation Moto 360! [Android Headlines]

  • Will the Next-Gen iPhones Be Cheaper Than Current Models?
    Because of some changing tax laws on imports from China, this is what some people are speculating will happen and not that Apple, aware that people are perfectly happy shilling out what they already pay for iPhones, will happily continue to do so, so the company can make a further profit on the devices. Either some people are just less jaded than I am, or more naive. [Design & Trends]

Dual Camera iPhone
  • Will the iPhone 7 Have Two Cameras on the Back?
    But it's not why you think... unless you think it's for better pictures, then it's exactly what you think. [Apple Insider]

  • Will Malls Fine Stores for Being Closed on Thanksgiving?
    No. We're guessing that someone misheard them when management said it was "fine for closing on Thanksgiving." [South Bend Tribune]
