Rumor Roundup: Red Dead Redemption Sequel?


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:

Captain Angelina Jolie

    Lara Croft meets Captain Marvel? Internet, start your fan-fiction engines! [SlashFilm]

  • Will the iPhone 6S Solve the Bending Issue of the iPhone 6?
    Tape the 6S to the back of the 6, like a splint, and the 6 certainly won't bend anymore! [Gotta Be Mobile]

The Rock Fannypack
  • Are Jawbone and American Express Teaming Up for a "Wearable Payment System"?
    We had "wearable payment systems" back in the 80's; they were called "fanny packs." I could wear one and it would hold my payment methods (cash) just fine. And, to answer your first question: Yes, I also wore clip-on, flip-up sunglasses. To answer your second: Yes, I was the coolest kid on the block. (There were no other kids on my block.)

  • Will Apple's Apple Beats Music Service Have Exclusive Artists?
    I'm hoping for Monet, Manet, and Degas! That is, if they can't get the guy who makes the velvet Elvises. [HNGN]

Red Dead Flowers
  • Is There a Red Dead Redemption Sequel in the Works?
    Horse-riding, gun-shooting, and guy-killing are all assumed. Fingers crossed for flower-collecting! [News Tactics]

  • Did Apple Sell Over One Million Apple Watches on the First Day of Preorders?
    That's kinda crazy! It makes you realize just how many people have wrists. [Geeky Gadgets]
