Rumor Roundup: YouTube Getting Better Content? PlayStation 2 Games?


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:

Apple Watch
  • Is Apple Going to Announce the Apple Watch 2 in March?
    By April, those of you with an original Apple Watch will be getting outdated time reports from your last gen watch. [Apple Insider]

  • Will the iPhone 8 Have an OLED Display?
    Since I'm "in the biz," I sometimes forget that not everyone knows the definition of "OLED" that I throw around. To clarify, OLED is just another way of saying "Oh, LED!", like you're delightfully surprised. Situation: You come home to find LED has cooked you dinner. "Oh, LED, you're so good to me!" you exclaim, before things get PG-13. [Apple Insider]

YouTube Red
  • Is YouTube Negotiating for Streaming Rights to TV Shows?
    How weird that they would pursue adding content that people want to watch! I am shocked that not as many people as they thought are flocking to pay for "watch me play this video game," "reaction," and "how to tie a bow tie" videos as they thought! [LA Times]

  • Will "Cyberpunk 2077" Be Released Soon?
    For a franchise that's had 2,076 previous titles, I've never heard of it. Is this like PewDiePie, or everyone who is a huge star on Disney Radio, all over again? What else am I missing? Next, you'll tell me there's another Star Wars movie coming out, or something. [Geek Snack]

PlayStation Console
  • Will You Soon Be Able to Play PS2 Games On Your PlayStation 4?
    Oh, ha, not your PS2 games that you already bought and own on disc... but those same games that you'll be able to purchase again from the PlayStation store. That's still "backwards compatibility," right? In some weird, not-at-all way? [Games Radar]

  • Is HTC Calling Its Next Flagship Phone "Perfume"?
    Great, now when I walk through Macy's, the workers are going to spray Android in my face. (Smells like Marshmallow right now, though. Not bad!) [TechTimes]

I think RedTube would have been a better name. Oh, wait.
