Rumor Roundup: Next-Gen iPad Will Blur The Lines? 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:

iPad Blurred Lines
  • Will Apple's "iPad Pro" Blur the Lines Between a Tablet and a Computer?
    Robin Thicke just felt the tingle of a potential licensing fee! "You're the hottest click in this place!" [The Motley Fool]

  • Are Battery-Draining Bugs to Blame for the Delayed Roll-Out of the Next Android OS?
    Let's take a quiet moment to imagine a world where that sentence can be taken at face value. Would the bugs be giant, devouring batteries in one gulp, or tiny, and infesting phone cases? Either way: I'll bet we never would have outlawed DDT if this scenario were real. [PCMag]

Zombie Meh
  • Will the Next "Call Of Duty" Game Feature Zombies?
    Yawn. Have we reached "peak zombie" yet? I mean, you guys must be getting sick and tired of them by now, right? No? [Gamer Syndrome]

  • Will the Apple Watch Go on Sale On February 14, Cost $5,000?
    It's Apple's Valentine's Day love letter ... to their bank accounts.[Ubergizmo]

Flapper Wonder Woman
  • Will The Wonder Woman Movie Take Place in the 20s?
    She's an Amazonian bearcat who doesn't skiddo at the first hint of a crumb bum bumping off some mug! She gives the palooka a what-for, then it's off to Lindy as a hot-jazz flapper at a swanky speakeasy! (And people say kids today don't respect the language?! Applesauce!) [Bleeding Cool]

  • Will Nokia Return to Making Android Phones ... In 2016?
    Quick! Create a Google Calendar reminder to get excited in two years' time. [Mobile Burn]

Apple watch? What's that? Oh, because it's now totally normal to announce something and then not deliver until the following year by which time everyone will have forgotten said announcement and competitors having 3 iterations of their own already perfected at 1/3 the cost - got it!
