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:

  • Is This a Picture of the Taller, Larger iPhone 5? (pictured)
    My inner obsessive-compulsive is itching to put those in height order ... or generation order ... or any order, really! GAH! It's killing me! Take this image from my sight! [CNET]

  • T-Mobile Will Push Unlocked iPhones in Retail Stores?
    "Why NOT pay the unlocked price for the iPhone and have it on the nation's FOURTH-biggest network?! Wait ... where are you going, customer? You can ... oh nevermind." [Jingling bell as the customer leaves the store, followed by the sound of quiet weeping.] [FierceWireless]

  • iPhone 5 Will Come with Newly-Redesigned Headphones?
    Ones that, hopefully, will not constantly fall out of your ears when jogging, walking, hit by a stiff breeze, or quietly sitting still and barely breathing. What we're saying is: the other headphones were the pits. [Mashable]

  • Xbox 720 Delayed Because of a Lack of Chips?
    Coincidentally, that's the same reason why everyone went home early from my last party! Well, that and the fact that I called the cops and told them it was a break-in, so they showed up and arrested everyone. Ah, memories. [DigitalTrends]

  • iPhone 5 Won't Have NFC Because It Lacks the Chips?
    Coincidentally, that's the same reason why everyone went home early from my last party! Well, that and the fact that I don't have any friends. [InRumor]
