Rumor Roundup: Things Get Strange ... DOCTOR Strange! And more!

By , dealnews Media Editor

With the iPhone 5 announcement event mere days ago, there are no new iPhone rumors ... but that didn't stop the good ole Internet from making other things up! Below are this week's lies, all cleaned up, snarked, and presented for your approval. We call this the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

  • Is Doctor Strange in Thor 2?
    If he isn't, I'll bet the writers give a *wink* to this rumor by including dialog along the lines of:
    THOR: Who be YOU, mortal?!
    MAN IN LAB COAT: I'm a doctor of climatology!
    THOR: You are truly a strange doctor!
    [Thor then turns to the camera, removes his shirt, and flexes. (For the ladies, you know.)]

  • EA Offered Valve $1 Billion for Steam?
    Valve's co-founder, Gabe Newell, said he would rather have Valve "disintegrate" than sell it. EA reacted by shifting large sums of R&D cash into development of a disintegrator ray. [WeGotThisCovered]

  • Nook Tablet Running Windows 8 to Be Announced?

  • iTunes Headed to Russia, Selling Tracks for Less Than 99 Cents?
