This Week's Rumor Roundup: iPad, Android, YouTube, more

Ensured delivery by Christmas:
  • YouTube to start creating content?
    It's not filmed a single clip and it's already better than NBC's non-Thursday line-up of shows.
  • Windows 8 at CES 2011?
    With the "8" key being so close to the "7" on the keyboard, I'm assuming a typo. Not until a leaked document calls it "Windows Eight" will I believe next-gen Windows OS rumors. Actually, even then! I mean, how many times have I tried to type "eight" and typed "eight" instead?!
  • Honeycomb will be Android 2.4 NOT 3.0?
    Congratulations! With NO time to spare, coming in at the bell, on the VERY LAST Rumor Roundup of 2011, this rumor wins the title of this year's most snooze-worthy rumor! (You may pick up your trophy in the lobby on your way out.)
  • Demand for iPad 2 will be high?
    Just like the person who came up with this rumor. I mean, seriously?! (I may have been too hasty giving the award to the Android rumor.)
  • Mafia Wars 2: Shadow Nation coming soon?
    I think more people would like the mob if the families were capo'd by Christina Hendricks lookalikes. La Cosa HOT-stra!
