This Week's Rumor Roundup: iPad, Amazon, Google

Some rumors for your eyes to read:
  • iPad might have an un-announced camera?
    Right. Cuz if it was gonna have one, Steve Jobs would TOTALLY not mention it at the keynote, nor proclaim it to be "magical". Boom.
  • Next Kindle to be full-color, touch-screen, "iPad killer"?
    It'll have everything the iPad does ... except the love and adoration of the publishing industry.
    It'll also have Flash.
  • Amazon to buy Netflix - this time for realsies?
    OK. This one would have some credence IF the full-color / video Kindle rumor is true. Just use what you learned in logic class: IF p = TRUE AND p -> q, then q=TRUE. Remember to show all work.
  • Google adding in-store views to Google Maps?
    Planning a heist? "Casing the joint" just got a whole lot easier!
  • Pegatron will make the next iPhone?
    It's the worst plan the Decepticons have come up with, yet, for world-domination ... and only Androidimus Prime can stop them!
  • PSPgo getting a "relaunch"?
    What happens when your product fizzles out upon release and gets NO attention whatsoever? Well, you wait a couple months, make absolutely no changes to the device, spend another truck-load of cash on advertising, and hope no one remembers it was a failure. It's the formula for success!
