Rumors: Is Samsung Working on a Flexible Smartphone?


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 this the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

    That's why, if you listen closely to the infamous dinner scene in Alien, you can hear Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley say, "This is just like that thing that happened to my mom that one time!" It's hard to hear over John Hurt's screaming, but it's there. [io9]
