This Week's Rumor Roundup: Angry Birds, Apple, Howard Stern

Because I SAID SO, that's why!
  • Howard Stern signing a deal with iTunes?
    When reached for comment, Jobs said, "BABABOOEYBABABOOEYBABABOOEY!" then hung up.
  • Microsoft readying TV delivery through the Xbox 360?
    How are all the actors going to fit in that tiny box?! ... is what someone from the past OR an uncle would say to this news.
  • More Angry Birds for Valentine's Day?
    To be honest, I put this in here because stories about Angry Birds just get mad clicks. (Pecks? Nope, "clicks". I was right the first time.)
  • Google's eBook store to open by 2011?
    OOH! I hope its books are in a proprietary format, so I don't have to worry about rereading them in a Google-less future!
  • Big update for Windows Phone 7 in January?
    Well, the idea that they were working on this update since before the release of the phone has been widely accepted as truth. So, this is just another example of how companies think it's OK to release a beta product to consumers, then sweep in with all the fixes they should have made before release. Also: BABABOOEY!
  • Next iPad will have a USB port?
    Way to reach for the stars, rumor.

Jeff Somogyi is the dealnews Media Editor. He reaches for the stars ... and then fails with hilarious results, on Twitter @dzheough. Follow him, won't you?
