This Week's Rumor Roundup: iPad, PS3, Smurfs

A fun, mixed-bag of rumors:
  • GameStop up for sale?
    Perhaps they will be bought by a company with a conscience?
  • Microsoft teaming up with Verizon for "Project Pink" phones aimed at teenagers?
    You know when you were a kid, and your grandparents, for your birthday, would get you almost the thing you really wanted? (Like Leader-1 instead of Optimus Prime.) I'm imagining this playing out a lot like that.
  • PlayStation 3 getting 3D upgrade in June?
    It will be a free* firmware upgrade.
    *With purchase of a $3,000 3DTV.
  • Google building a set-top box that will put YouTube on your TV?
    By the time this hits the market, there probably won't be a single TV you can buy that doesn't already have some video streaming service baked-in. You are better than this, Google.
  • iPad will be missing some apps at launch?
    With the clock app gone, you'll be able to create a Keynote presentation on the go, but won't know when to present it.
  • Audi's A2 will be all-electric?
    Now, when prepsters say, "We're Audi", they'll mean that they'll be leaving quickly, quietly, and efficiently, leaving behind a better environment.
  • Robin to make an appearance in 'Arkham Asylum 2'?
    It's too easy to say, "Holy Guest Appearances, Batman!", so I'll just say nothing.
  • Quentin Tarantino to star as Brainy Smurf in live-action movie?
    Whoever is behind making this decision must have never seen his work and certainly never saw his "acting". ("Destiny Turns on the Radio"?! I mean, come on!)
