Rumor Roundup: Siri Coming to Macs?


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:

Siri Closeup
  • Is Siri Coming to Desktops This Year?
    I, for one, am looking forward to a future in which I get frustrated and curse at my computer... and it curses back. Sick of all these computers that just passively take it. Have some spine, laptop! [Apple Insider]

  • Will the New Zelda Game Be Released for Nintendo's Next-Gen Console, as Well as for Wii U?
    This is a huge departure from their normal new game release schedule (which is usually "just rerelease titles for the old console on this new one"). Baby steps. [Twinfinite]

Facebook Silhouettes
  • Is Facebook Going to Display Ads in Messenger This Year?
    The worst part about this is that I'll never know if it's my friend or an advertiser who is asking me to click to see eligible singles in my neighborhood. [Ubergizmo]

  • Will Google Remove the App Drawer in the Next Version of Android?
    Instead, all applications will be spread across multiple homescreens. To see if you'll like this new method, pull out your junk drawer and sprinkle its contents evenly across your floor. Being able to see everything, out in the open, will strike you as convenient, as you step on thumbtacks, pencil lead, and old ketchup packets. [Vine Report]

Starship Enterprise
  • Will the New Star Trek TV Series Star Tony Todd?
    To get him to come in for an audition, all casting had to do was say his name three times while staring into a mirror. (That's a deep cut for you horror fans out there.) [TV Series Finale]

  • Is a New News-Aggregating Feature, Called "Morning Reads", Coming to the Chrome App?
    Each morning, you will be presented with news articles based on past mornings' browsing activity. A good idea in theory, but I worry I'm about to get a harsh wake-up call about how many food-news blogs I read. (Look, I just heard Ecto Cooler is coming back, so I have to check for news first thing every morning! Huh? Presidential election year what?) [Android Headlines]

Did you say "aggregating," or "aggravating"?
