This Week's Rumor Roundup: Apple, Rock Band, Androids, more

They're back, and more rumor-y than ever!
  • iPhone SDK key leaked on the internet?
    And, just like all the other hex keys that are found, the majority of people either don't care, or know what to do with it.
  • Another "ultra portable" Mac on its way?
    Another device which will be, technically, a larger iPhone. Wait ... isn't the iPhone ultra portable? I mean, it fits in your pocket, right? Anything bigger is LESS portable, no? Maybe people have bigger pockets than I do ...
    Note to self: Buy bigger pants.
  • Cobalt Blue DS?
    No new specs except the color! With the lack of Wii availability, I guess we have to choose to be happy with whatever new thing Nintendo makes available.
  • Wii will be rockin' out with Rock Band?
    Rumoring about an almost certain eventuality seems sad, doesn't it? That said, I honestly can't wait. (I can do a pretty accurate Thom Yorke on "Creep" — true story.)
  • Sonic, makers of Roxio, dropping HD DVD encoding support?
    To say that this is "another nail in the coffin of HD DVD" isn't quite true, as most of us mentally buried the format months ago. This is more like "spitting on HD DVD's grave".
  • T-Mobile spearheading Android invasion?
    Fwew! It's just the phone based on the Android SDK. No one gets really excited over THAT kind of android ...
  • Yahoo! building a lifecasting service?
    Awesome ... now instead of limiting my choice to the 24/7 live-and-very-very-boring streams from et al, I'll have hundreds of life-casting streams to ignore and, instead, live my own life.
Jeff Somogyi is a dealnews Senior Staffwriter. His stream goes live around 1 pm (or earlier, if he's had a lot of coffee that morning.) Eww.
