This Week's Rumor Roundup: iPhone, Rock Band, more

Buy three rumors, and get the fourth for free.
  • Rock Band 3 has keyboards?
    OK. First, why would a job posting use such ludicrous abbreviations? Second, if they were going to be adding keyboards, why would the post call it an "organ"?! So, unless RB3 is going to be a "Church / Stadium Edition", I'd assume "organ" means "organizational". Doesn't that make more sense?! C'MON, people!
  • PlayStation 4 to be "cheap"?
    If Sony has the technology to make a next-gen console for less money (in production) and pass that savings along to the consumer ... er ... why not do it for the PS3?! C'MON, Sony!
  • Apple "Brick" to be awesome?
    Another quote taken out of context, methinks, but that doesn't stop people from thinking it's going to be the besterest, funnerest, moste awesom-ing-est Apple offering yet! Me? I think the guy was just talking about his iPhone, after trying to install the new firmware. (zing)
  • 2009: The year Verizon gets the iPhone?
    Right now, nervous AT&T execs are thumbing through their "through 2010 exclusivity" contract to see if they forgot to put a line in there about "exclusivity means the iPhone is exclusive to AT&T." Boy would they look stupid if they left THAT out of the contract. (Hint: they didn't, and this rumor is BUNK!)
