Rumor Roundup: Waterproof iPhone 6? Cars 3? Forking Android?


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:

Pixar Cars Explosion
  • Is Pixar Working on Cars 3?
    The story will center around the new car in town, Ric. He's an electric car who is shunned by all the gas-guzzlers. He's finally run out of town and, unable to recharge, dies .... Who killed the electric car? Lightning McQueen. [The Inquisitr]

  • Is Google Going to Fork Android for Smartwatches?
    Forking Android! They're fragmenting their OS! What's next? A forked Android OS for forks? Hmmm... iForks. Call my patent lawyer. [The Unwired]

Surfing iPhone
  • Will the iPhone 6 Be Waterproof?
    Face it, 99% of you flashed back to "that toilet incident" and less than 1% of you thought, "Radical! I can finally use my shark cage without having to put a cover on my iPhone first!" (Zero is still less than 1%.) [Latin Post]

  • Is the Samsung Galaxy S5 Going to Have Plastic and Faux Leather Construction?
    Ah! Only the finest materials were used to give the Samsung Galaxy a high-end look and feel! Plush Corinthian Pleather! [UberGizmo]

Creepy Luigi
  • Is Nintendo Working on a Luigi Version of the 2DS?
    It'll have green highlights, be able to jump higher / farther, and its accomplishments will be often overlooked, especially by royalty. [Kotaku]

  • Is Microsoft Working on a Google Glass Competitor?
    In its version, when something goes wrong, your vision goes blue ... and then you fall down a manhole. Yes, a literal Blue Screen of Death (as if any of you needed me to explain that one). [CNET]
