Rumors: Is an All-Glass iPhone in the Works?


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:

See-Through 80s Phone
  • Will the Next iPhone Be Completely Made of Glass?
    "Once I had an iPhone and it was a gas / soon turned out it's made of glass." --Blondie [TechAeris]

  • Is Apple Adding Touch ID Unlocking to Its Macs?
    On their laptops, it'll be the button you're used to; for the desktops, it'll be an accessory pad that you put on your office chair that'll unlock your computer when it recognizes your own, unique butt. No word on how much that butt-ID pad will cost to replace if you've wrecked 'em. [PC Mag]

PlayStation VR
  • Is the PlayStation 4 Not Powerful Enough to Run the Upcoming PlayStation VR Headset?
    Well, it's a bit ridiculous to think that a console that was released three years ago would be able to support the latest, cutting edge updates! That'd be like expecting a three-year-old car to still transport you safely to where you want to go. Or it's nothing like that. Look, just buy a new PlayStation, please! [GameZone]

Shame Of Thrones
  • Will Google "Shame" Phone Makers if They Don't Update to the Latest Android OS?
    "We're not mad, we're just disappointed that your phones still run Gingerbread. Could we have been a better parent company to you? Tell us, is it something we did?" *Google breaks down into tears; loses all respect from handset makers, who go off to follow Phish on tour, or something* [PC Mag]

  • Has Apple Told Their Supplier to Produce Between 72 Million and 78 Million iPhones?
    One would expect Apple to be a bit more specific than that. I mean, that's a difference of six million phones. This isn't like McDonalds when you get an 11th McNugget and the company can shrug it off... this is six million iPhones. Billions served, indeed! [Apple Insider]
