Rumor Roundup: Will There Be a Golden iPad? Stan Lee Watches?


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:

Stan Lee The Watcher
  • Is Stan "The Man" Lee Going T=to Play Uatu, The Watcher in a Future Marvel Film?
    As if anyone believes that Stan Lee could stand idly by and not interfere?! [Digital Spy]

  • Is The Similar-Sounding "Windows 95" the Reason the Next Microsoft OS Will Be Called "Windows 10"?
    Yeah, Microsoft wouldn't want people to associate the new OS with that innovative, revolutionary, long-lasting, much-beloved version of their software. [Engadget]

Oompa Loompa Apple
  • Will The Next Apple iPad Be Available in Gold?
    If they were fun, Apple would ship five golden iPads made of real gold! And, if found, the finder gets a tour of the Apple Factory!

    I've got another puzzle for you!
    What do you get when you build phones from alumin-um?
    Bending as much as a rubber band can?

  • Is The Next Motorola Phone Called Moto DROID Turbo?
    It's a typical Motorola DROID phone, but with a Turbo Boost. (That is, it can, at the press of a button, jump over obstacles, Michael.) [Gotta Be Mobile]

Avengers Split

  • Is Apple Pay Coming to iPhones on October 20?
    I got super excited and cut up all of my now-useless credit cards. Then I realized I don't own an iPhone. Can I borrow cab fare home? [Design & Trend]
