Rumor Roundup: YouTube Music Subscriptions? A Male Dr Who Companion?

Everyone loves some good gossip!

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:

  • Will the Next Version of Windows Be Called "Threshold?"
    Vampires will not be able to download it (at least, not without an invite). [Softonic]

  • BlackBerry Will Focus on Software Services, Put Hardware Dev on Back-Burner?
    Yep. Because that's what everyone loved about their devices: BBOS. [UberGizmo]

  • Will the Samsung Galaxy S5 Have a 2K Screen?
    With a quad-core CPU in there as well, once it's powered on, the heat it emits is enough to melt ice. (The Galaxy S5 quickly becomes the must-have phone for penguins — and immediately despised by mid-90s rapper, Robert Van Winkle.) [BGR]

  • Is a YouTube-Based Music Subscription Service on Its Way?
    I can already cue up as many free videos to play, what would I be paying for? The fact that I don't have to minimize a video window, because there will be no video to minimize? Well, I must be missing something, because things are always better when you pay for them. Like beer. [CNET]

  • Is Doctor Who Finally Getting a Male Companion?
    Yeah, because Turlough, Chameleon, and Adric all turned out great. #DeepNerd [The Mary Sue]

  • Does the Xbox One Smoke?
    Only socially, and only after it's had a few drinks. (Or so it claims.) [The Gamer Headlines]

According to "Ice Ice Baby" was a hit in 1989 and/or 1990 (it's unclear which year).
