Rumors: Bye Bye VW Beetle? Bye Bye Dr. Pepper?


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:

Dr Pepper Coke
  • Did Coca-Cola Buy Dr. Pepper So They Could Discontinue It?
    It's Judge Doom buying the Red Car all over again! "This town's only big enough for one secret-formula drink, MISTER Pepper!" says evil Coke, before throwing the switch, turning on the giant laser.

  • Is Verizon Replacing FiOS With a Better TV Service?
    Well, what am I supposed to do with all this fiber optic cable I pulled out of the ground and was hoping to ransom back to Verizon? I guess I can weave fiber optic cloth to make fiber optic pants? [Slash Gear]

  • Are There No Plans at Sony to Make a PlayStation 5?
    Is this because they think the world is coming to end, so they see no future with a PS5?! Live every day like it's your last, people. Sony says so. [Guru of 3D]

VW Beetle
  • Will the Volkswagen Beetle Be Discontinued in 2018?
    By Volkswagen's estimates, that's the exact year that a hippie's nostalgic desire to relive their 60's "love bug" days will abruptly end, drying up the market. [Modern Readers]

  • Is Apple Working on Wireless Headphones That Have Optional Wired Connectivity?
    Because sometimes you just want to have a wild cord swinging all over the place, catching on doorknobs and people's purses, jerking the headphones off your head, and hurting your ears immensely. [9 to 5 Mac]
