Rumor Roundup: Does Calling the New iPhone 'Razor Thin' MEAN Anything?

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:

Thin iPhone 7
Mashable
  • Is Apple's iPhone 7 Going to Be the Thinnest One Yet?
    At 6.1mm, many journalists will certainly take to calling the new iPhone "razor thin." To test this theory, I tried shaving with a 6.1mm-thick razor. Results were disappointing, but encouraging that I won't slice my fingers off when I pick up a new iPhone. (Just a friendly reminder that words actually mean things.) [Mashable]

  • Will the Next-Gen PlayStation Come in Two Different Versions?
    I assume they'll cost the same and come in the same box, and you won't know if you got the good one or not until you open it. Sorry, I've been playing a lot of mobile games with micropayments for "blind" character upgrades, so I just assume this is where retail is going too. [ValueWalk]

Batman Typing

  • Did Ben Affleck Rewrite Parts of Batman V. Superman Dressed as Batman?
    Well, seeing as how I write this weekly Rumor Roundup dressed as "a guy who writes a weekly rumor roundup," I see the benefits of dressing the part. (FYI, dressing like "a guy who writes a weekly rumor roundup" means wearing a Batman suit. Look, these are the jokes you deserve, not the ones you want, ok?) [ComicBookReport]

  • Will the Upcoming iPad Air 3 Actually Be a 9.7" iPad Pro?
    Wait. Maybe I was wrong earlier, when I said words actually mean things. Office submarine. Who cares? [PCMag]

Pikachu Sitting

  • Does Shouting "Gotcha" at the Right Moment Increase Your Chances of Capturing a Pokemon?
    No, but it does increase the chances of the person sitting next to you on the train scooting a bit farther away from you. So... result! [Kotaku]

  • Is Google Redesigning the Shade on Android N?
    Google says there'll be "no shade," but then continues, "Everyone knows we're better than the iPhone." Then NeNe rolls her eyes and Andy Cohen yells "Shotski!" and the situation is squashed. (Again, words don't mean anything.) [9 to 5 Google]
