This Week's Rumor Roundup: Apple, Zune, Nintendo, BioShock

Here's the speculation that's on the lips of every amateur tech blogger:
  • New Nintendo hand held device by 2009?
    An analyst - who apparently graduated from Obvious University - says that Nintendo will release a new handheld once DS sales decline. Wow. He gets PAID to say stuff like this?!
  • Zune Marketplace to be available on Nokia phones?
    I bet you'll have to buy special "Nokia Store Credits" using "Zune Points" that you bought with actual cash. Cuz, you know, that kinda thing's not, like, a hurdle for music stores at all.
  • Multiplayer BioShock?
    Nice! Now my co-player can kneel down behind a Big Daddy, and I can run up and push it over. Classic!
  • Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter?
    Since it's a Burton film, this was kinda a no-brainer. Sigh. Well, it's still better than the brief rumor that he'd be playing ALICE (I kid you not!).
    I can also predict that Helena Bonham Carter will be in it and the music will be done by Danny Elfman. Cuz if there's anything Tim Burton is, it's predictable.
  • Apply to switch to NVIDIA chips? or are they going with ARM chips?
    It's like Mac computers are the salsa, and you need to find the perfect dipping chip. I suggest Tostitos Scoops.
Jeff Somogyi is dealnews' Media Editor. He is aware that, right after making fun of others for being "too obvious", he went and made a Tostitos joke when talking about chips.
