Get yer hot, buttered rumors here! New iPhone in June?We can't have those customers who bought the first-gen iPhone hanging around with a regular month-to-month contract, now can we? Quick! Release a new phone and lock 'em in for another two years! Verizon to subsidize netbooks?Save $200 to spend $1,400 over the life of the 2-year Verizon contract? It's a bargain! Thanks, Verizon, for teaching us the true meaning of "gouging". Skype coming to the iPhone?Why wouldn't Apple want to ruin its lucrative relationship with AT&T by offering free calls via WiFi? Nintendo's DSi to feature virtual console downloads?O! Nostalgia! You tempt me to pay top-dollar for the newest-gen product, so that I may play old, poor-resolution, spinach-green games. Dell buying Palm?Dell shoulda thought of this before Palm announced the Pre and got all "buzz-worthy". Now they'll have to pay top-dollar ... OR, they can just wait until the Pre reveals itself to be an absolute failure and pick the company up for a song! Another "Gears of War" expansion pack?Called "Dark Corners", it will be an immersive action game that requires your player to replace blown-out streetlight bulbs. Ah! The pun! The last ditch effort of humor. iPod shuffle's mysterious chip is really a microphone?First, we were told it was some sort of hardware DRM, now we're told it's a microphone?! Maybe it's some sort of DRM/microphone hybrid that will be the salvation of all the people aboard the Battlestar Galactica?! (Hmmm ... Actually, that might have been a better ending to the show.)
