Rumor Roundup: iPhone 6 Will Detect Elephants? Bieber-Ball? More?


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:

Elephant Stepping On Girl
  • Will the iPhone 6 Have Pressure, Humidity, and Temperature Sensors?
    It'll be able to accurately tell you if you're being crushed to death by a large, sweaty elephant on the savannah. (A rarely needed case, but when you need to know this, it's oh so important!) [MacRumors]

  • Does "Assassin's Creed Unity" Take Place During the French Revolution?
    We'd say, "Let them eat cake," but other video games have already established that the cake, in fact, is a lie. [Shack News]

Bieber Vs Shaq
  • Will NBA 2K15 Have a Celebrity Team Mode?
    My fingers are crossed that there is a 25-point basket that descends from the ceiling. #MTVRockNJockBBallJam [Gameranx]

  • Is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Going to Be Waterproof?
    A necessary feature, given the tears you'll shed upon herniating yourself from carrying around a huge "phablet" of a phone. [Geeky Gadgets]

Brazil Ending
  • Is Microsoft Looking Into Virtual Reality?
    So it finally happened? Not being able to face the reality of a Windows version universally hated by everyone, Microsoft has withdrawn into a virtual reality. It's a psychological case that'll be studied for days. [Joystiq]

  • Is Amazon About to Launch an "Epic" New Product?
    Though, based on the way the word "epic" is thrown around on the Internet these days, it could mean anything from a new way we see the world, to a picture of a funny-looking sandwich. (Or the love between Veronica Mars and Logan! SQUEE!) #EpicSandwich [Mobile Marketing Watch]

Tom Siebel - a world known CEO who established Siebel CRM software (and sold it to Oracle for 5 billion) almost died a couple of years back after being crushed by an elephant. His leg had to be reconstructed almost from scratch.

His iPhone burst in a hundred pieces, he joked that he wanted to send it to (then alive) Steve Jobs for refund
