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:
- Google Glasses Will Vibrate?
That totally sounds NSFW until it's explained that it entails bone conducting. And then it sounds down right filthy. [The Verge]
- Destiny's Child to Reunite at The Super Bowl?
You know who's excited about this rumor? The two "children" who are not Beyoncé. [MTV]
- Aquaman Will Not Appear in the Justice League Movie?
H 2 oh no! I haven't seen people this mad since the last time someone left a B-grade character no one cares about out of a movie that's probably going to be terrible! [io9]
- Google Working on a Smart Watch?
First glass, now a watch? Accessorizing! (Just remember: Face away from the mirror, then quickly turn back. Remove the first Google Smart AccessoryTM that you notice.) [Business Insider]
- YouTube to Offer Paid Subscriptions?
Prediction: Maru will be the first YouTube millionaire. (I say this not because I love those videos, but because I constantly expect that the world will let me down.) [Ad Age]
- Apple Has Cut iPad Display Orders in Half?
Makes sense if they're really gonna push sales of the iPad mini. (Which has half the screen real estate, you see? Jokes are funnier when explained, right?) [Cult of Mac]
- Low-Cost iPhone Will Have a Mostly-Plastic Body?
So, it'll fit right in when it starts making appearances on those Real Housewives shows. [Apple Insider
