Rumor Roundup: Thicker iPad 3? George Clooney as Steve Jobs?

By , dealnews Media Editor

Life is like a box of rumors ... most of them are garbage.

  • Amazon working on a Kindle phone?
    An E-Ink phone that will only allow you to send gramatically correct texts. [dvice]

  • Wii U will offer EA's Origin store?
    EA is hoping to get their no-nonsense brand of hard-core gaming in front of a whole new audience ... of casual gamers who think Mario Galaxy is too violent. [Pikimal]

  • iPad 3 will be thicker than the current version?
    Call me shallow, but if having a faster, better, brighter, more clear device and screen means the iPad has to be tenths of inches thicker ... I'll stick with the iPad 2, thankyouverymuch! (I blame magazines and the fashion industry for depicting an unobtainable ideal of thinness in our gadgets.) [iLounge]

  • George Clooney or Noah Wyle to play Steve Jobs in upcoming biopic?
    Not considered: Anthony Edwards, Sherry Stringfield, Eriq La Salle, nor Julianna Margulies. [SlashFilm]
