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:

  • Will There Be a New Dino Crisis Later This Year?
    All depends on how fast John Hammond loses control of his new island. [Web Pro News]

  • Was Google Going to Buy Brainwave-Sensing Hardware Manufacturer, InteraXon?
    Don't worry, they don't want to use brain-reading technology for anything insidious! (Just reading your mind to know what ads you secretly want to see.) (And your debt card PINs.) [TechCrunch]

Ara Modular Cell Phone
Slashgear
  • Will Ara, the Modular Cell Phone, Cost Only $50?
    (Pricing for the base unit only; accessories sold separately, wherever major cell phones are sold; playset sold separately; toys do not actually float; professional driver on a closed course, do not attempt; do not taunt Ara phones.) [Ubergizmo]

  • Will Samsung's Next Windows Phone Be Called "ATIV"?
    Ha! It's like "ACTIVE", but without a "C" or "E"! (Here, let me explain why this is hilarious: Windows CE is the name of an old, much-maligned Windows mobile OS. Are you laughing, yet?) [TechnoBuffalo]

Doctor Peter Capaldi

  • Is the Next Doctor, Peter Capaldi, Intending to Stay for Only One Season?
    It burns me that Colin Baker will have a longer tenure than this very fine actor! (Not to say that Colin Baker isn't a fine actor! He does an excellent job of acting like a Doctor that I can't stand.) [Comicbook.com]

  • Is the Samsung Galaxy S5 Going to Be Pre-Loaded With Apps That Are Tailored to Your Personality?
    I got all fart apps. [Ubergizmo]

Yes, to get the joke, I was probably a little too tough on Colin Baker. Though I don't like him (or do I not like Peri?!), I UNDERSTAND why his doctor is the way he is. They took a shot with a "new way to be the Doctor" and it just didn't resonate for me. To each their own!
After all, isn't that what Doctor Who is all about? Learning to get along? (Unless you're the Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Sea Devils, Martians, Yeti ... etc )

Colin Baker was an ok Doctor, You may be going a little hard on him. Of course, everyone has their favorites and their less favorites. But by golly, one year is way too short for any Doctor. (Or one movie.)
