This Week's Rumor Roundup: iPad, iPhone, Natal

Be warned: Many of these rumors came out around April 1. Who's the fool, now?!
  • iPhone HD for Verizon in June?
    The HD is for "high density". The phone will be slimmer and smaller than the current models, but weigh 3x as much.
  • iPad available worldwide on April 24?
    And by "worldwide" they mean "Canada", so ... not really anywhere important.
    (I love you, Canada, you know that, right?)
  • iPhone 4.0 gets multitasking?
    But ... but ... that smirky Wilson brother in those smarmy AT&T commercials swears that they already have multitasking!
    Oh. Oh, I see ... they were just bending the truth? Who knew marketing would lie to us like that?
  • Gears of War 3 announcement on April 8?
    ... on that Jimmy Fallon show. What's more annoying? Having a rumor about a potential announcement of the trailer of a game, or Jimmy Fallon. Either way: Not cool.
  • Apple's ad platform, iAd, to debut April 7?
    Only Apple could get people excited about getting ads served to them.
  • Nexus One on Verizon this week ... with a "surprise"?
    Surprises should ALWAYS be "a creamy nougat center". Always!
  • Radio Shack looking to sell itself for $3 billion?
    And they all laughed at you when your business plan was:
    1. Sell remote control cars and batteries
    2. ?
    3. profit
  • Xbox Natal arriving in October?
    The first title: "Yoga Natal". Great! Natal is just another trick to get me to exercise!
Jeff Somogyi is the dealnews Media Editor. He's convinced that "Yoga Natal" was Dhalsim's best combo-breaker move.
