This Week's Rumor Roundup: iPhone, Palm Pre, WoW, more

We guarantee that each of our rumors are pure, unchecked, un-sourced, and virtually fact-free speculations. Also: No high-fructose corn syrup.
  • Apple to cut prices?
    GASP! My conspicuous consumption purchase is less status-symbol, now that the proles can afford one, too! (Also: My monocle has just fallen from my eye.)
  • Tuvalu is sinking?
    Which, of course, means that .tv domains will go away, too. Of course.
  • Video editing coming to iPhone?
    With it's impressively large screen, keyboard, and high processor power, it was only a matter of time before demanding programs like editing software made their way to the iPhone.
  • A second, smaller Palm Pre in the works already?
    Problem: The Pre already has such a vortex of rumor swirling about it that it was clear not everything could have been remotely true. Solution: Rumor that another phone is in the works. That means the rumor-capacity of the device has just doubled.
  • Apple Media Pad?
    Oh, for f@#%!'s sake, people! Not THIS rumor again?!
  • Windows 7 released on October 23?
    To help the Apple fanboys start their slander campaign, here is a list of historical disasters and world events that you can associate with the release of the new OS: At the Second Battle of Philippi, Brutus's army is decisively defeated by Mark Antony and Octavian in 42 BC; President Abraham Lincoln suspends the writ of habeas corpus in 1861; Lenin calls for the October Revolution in 1917; Odessa Massacre in which 19,000 are shot or burned by Romanian and German troops in 1941; The Smurfs appear for the first time in 1958; President Richard M. Nixon agrees to turn over audio tapes of the Watergate Scandal in 1973.
  • World of Warcraft coming to the iPhone?
    Why yes, that IS a Blood Elf warrior-shaman in my pocket.
Jeff Somogyi is dealnews' Media Editor. He, obviously, has never played WoW or he'd know that Blood Elves cannot be Warriors NOR Shamans. Seriously.
