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:
- Apple's iWatch Prototypes Only Get 2 Days of Battery Life?
If I wear a watch for more than two days, my wrist starts to smell weird. [Apple Insider]
- YouTube Will Offer Music Streaming Subscriptions?
It'll be like Pandora, but with video. So, like MTV, but on a computer. So, like YouTube, except you'll pay for it! [Fierce Mobile Content]
- Apple Will Again Work with Intel to Make CPUs?
Apple and Intel: The Ross and Rachael of the tech world! [Ed. Note: Please update your references for a younger audience.] In defiance, I come back with, "They are the Liz and Dick of the tech world!" [Ed. Note: Joke's on you, pal. There was just a made-for-TV movie about them! All the cool kids know who they are! Point: Editors!] Drat. [Apple Insider]
- Sony Will Produce 16 Million PS4s This Year?
They don't yet know the final specs, what it will look like, or how much it will cost, but they know how many they can make? Business waits not for logic! [Kotaku]
- Apple's Music Streaming Service Will Short-Change the Artists?
Paying half the royalties that Pandora pays, Apple can pass that savings on to the consumer. Right? You are going to pass on those savings, aren't you? Otherwise, why would you do that to the artists? (What I'm saying is: If you pass the savings along to us, most of us are going to be fine with ham-stinging the artists, really.) [Apple B*tch]
- Jay Leno Will Leave The Tonight Show in 2014?
"PSYCHE, Jimmy Fallon! I can't believe you fell for this, too, after what I did to Conan!" [Daily News]
Jeff Somogyi is the dealnews Media Editor. He was once offered his own TV dinner, but Leno stole that, too. See more of his missing meals on Google+, Twitter or on his blog.
