Rumor Roundup: Space Grey iPad mini 2? Peggy Carter? Sequels?


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:

  • Is This a Space Grey iPad mini 2?
    Open "iPad mini 2.png". Select "Tint." Slide to "Darker." Rumor achieved. [Gotta Be Mobile]

  • Is Splinter Cell: Blacklist for Wii U Not Selling Well?
    Oh, you mean the round-edged, big-buttoned, kiddie-looking console from the company that traditionally makes simpler, more kid-friendly fare isn't being mass-adopted by hardcore gamers? How strange! [Wii U Daily]

  • Is Samsung Getting Another Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Ready for Next Year?
    Not everything deserves a sequel. (I'm looking at you, Air Bud: Golden Receiver.) [BGR]

    You mean other than Google+?! BOOM! But, seriously. Follow me on Google+, it's great. [Poker Update]

  • Is Marvel Developing a Peggy Carter TV Series?

  • Will the Samsung Galaxy S5 Run Tizen Instead of Android?
    If you didn't say, "What?" then I ... I'm not sure why we're friends. #CallBack [Android Geeks]
