This Week's Rumor Roundup: iPhone, Guitar Hero, and more

Calm down, there are enough rumors for all:
  • Orb to bring media streaming to the iPhone?
    With the network connection being so slow on these phones, no one will notice that the app, when run, displays a continuous "buffering" screen with no real functionality built behind it.
  • Guitar Hero IV already in the works?
    Promising to be the most realistic version ever, this release will feature a new character: Mr. Fat Cat, the RIAA representative, who will show up, from time to time, to sue your character for covering other artist's songs.
  • GPS coming to the iPhone?
    Directions can be downloaded for 99 cents a trip.
  • Best Buy hording Wiis?
    Well, we all knew this day would come. Time to send a Hobbit to infiltrate Best Buy's lair and bring the secrets back out for the good of man-kind.
  • Update to the Apple TV in 2008?
    Er ... Man! I got nothing, on this one ... I think all of these constant Apple rumors have used up my supply of snark. Er ... APPLE TV SUCKS! *sigh*, no good ...
  • New James Bond racing game?
    Right. Because it's the driving that everyone loves about the Bond movies. Not the gun-play, action, or scantily clad women ... Yep, it's the cars we love.
