Rumor Roundup: Did HTC Lie About Gorilla Glass? Apple Wants Your DNA?

Published

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:

Gorilla Using iPhone
The Sun
  • Were Some HTC One M9 Phones Made With Gorilla Glass 3, Instead of the Better Gorilla Glass 4?
    Since the only way to tell is to hand your phone over to an actual glass gorilla, HTC figured you'd never find out. [Ubergizmo]

  • Does Apple Want to Collect Your DNA?
    How else are they going to get the genetic material to build the perfect Apple fanboy? Kyle XYphone. (No belly button.) [TechTimes]

  • Is Spotify Adding Videos to Its Service?
    Cat videos. Though "off brand," they just want the clicks. [The Verge]

  • Will the Xbox One Receive DVR Functions on Live TV?
    Pause, rewind, fast forward, crash, delete shows for no reason, and forget to record shows you set it to. (Well, that's how my current DVR functions, at least.) [Engadget]

Giant Remote

  • Will the Next Apple TV Come With a Larger Remote?
    I guess people were losing the old, small one too easily. But the solution isn't to make it bigger (we still lose big remotes — I just found my DVR controller in the fridge!); it's to make it harder to lose. My idea is to cover it in sharp barbs, so you can't let go of it. Patent pending, you guys! [Engadget]

  • Is Apple's Virtual Assistant, Siri, Getting an Update?
    It will now comply with your command to "open the pod bay doors." A very important update. [Gizmodo]
