Rumor Roundup: Apple Adding Long-Distance Wireless Charging to iPhones?


When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

Terminator Smile
  • Will James Cameron Direct the Next Terminator Film?
    I know now why you cry. [SciFied]

  • Will LG's Next Smartphone Feature a Display That's Always On?
    Ugh, we all know that guy, right? It's like, just calm down and stop making jokes! You don't have to be "on" all the time. (I'm talking about you, me!) [TechnoBuffalo]

Waterproof iPhone
  • Will the iPhone 7 Be Waterproof?
    Since the inception of the iPhone, this has been a much needed feature as hundreds of users, weeping at the beauty and simplicity of the device, have shorted the handset with their tears. Problem solved! [News Everyday]

  • Will Resident Evil 7 Arrive by Mid-2016?
    After seven entries in the franchise, this ain't no "visiting" evil, or even an evil here on a work-study visa. Nope, it really is resident.
    Alternate pun: After twenty years one would think evil would graduate to being a full doctor, instead, it's still a resident? Must not be very good at medicine. [PSX Extreme]

Wireless Electricity
  • Is Apple Hoping to Bring Long-Distance Wireless Charging to the iPhone?
    Technology could allow charging of a device up to 15 feet away. People already worry that cell phones give them brain cancer, and Apple thinks consumers are going to be OK with people believing there is now a 15-foot-wide "death zone" sending electricity through the air in their homes? [Ubergizmo]

  • Will Ewan McGregor Appear as Obi Wan Kenobi in the Next Star Wars Film?
    What a slight to Alec Guinness, to be passed over for consideration. [Attack of the Fanboy]
