Rumor Roundup: Selfie Phone? Governor Clooney? Thinnest iPhone?


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:

Woody Selfie
  • Is HTC Working on a "Selfie" Smartphone?
    Sure. Why not. What does anything mean, anymore? Can't wait to call to make a dentist appointment from a "YOLOphone". [Android Headlines]

  • Will the New "Game Arena" Feature on Xbox One Allow Users to Create Challenges for Other Online Players?
    I would challenge players to go five minutes without using inappropriate slurs during an online match. This is, apparently, an impossible goal. [Segment Next]

George Clooney in Gravity
  • Will George Clooney Run for Governor of California?
    He'll be there for the beginning of the campaign, but then Sandra Bullock will actually make it. [SF Gate]

  • Is Microsoft's Next Windows OS Called "Threshold"?
    thresh·old (noun): a strip of wood, metal, or stone forming the bottom of a doorway and crossed in entering a house or room.
    So, technically, "Windows Doorway"? [Softonic]

Apple Light
  • Will the New Backlight System Make Apple's iPhone 6 the Thinnest iPhone Yet?
    And the new BLACKlight system will make it the trippiest. [Apple Insider]

  • Is Photo-Printing Site Shutterfly Up for Sale?
    The eventual purchaser will be able to choose their stock certificates printed in glossy or matte, with duplicates, and/or in various formats, up to and including a large canvas print, or printed on a t-shirt or mug. [Benzinga]
