Rumors: Will Amazon Announce A Music Subscription Service?

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:


iPhone Dark Mode
Mac Rumors
  • Will Apple's Next iOS Include a "Dark Mode"?
    Switch your phone to this setting and it won't allow you to listen to anything but The Cure and read nothing but Camus. (This is of course different from "Darkest Mode," which causes your iPhone to grow a goatee and try to murder other iPhones around it to "move up in rank.") [InvestorPlace]

  • Has Apple Abandoned Plans to Put a Dual-Camera Configuration on the iPhone 7?
    Citing it as "stupid," an Apple spokesperson went on to say, "Why do you need a dual-camera setup? For that short film you want to make in 3D? Look, you're no James Cameron, ok? You'll be fine without it." (Just to be clear, we assume an Apple spokesperson could have said these things.) [Softpedia]


Iris
PBS.org
  • Will the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Feature an Iris Scanner?
    Citing that an iris scanner has 266 points of identification to a fingerprint scanner's mere 40, this is great news for people who have eyes, but not fingers! (Somewhere out there, a pirate is saying, "Yar, it be good ye only need one eye, to take advantage of the added security an iris scanner bring." Then he maybe throws in another "yar," just for good measure.) [Android And Me]

  • Is Tesla Actively Pursuing Model S Owners for Trade-In Upgrades?
    However, with a top speed of 130mph and a range of up to 250 miles on a single charge, it's hard to catch them. This was a terrible joke. (Because, of course, the Tesla rep could just wait at the owner's house to ambush them, when they come home from their Bilderberg meeting. Duh.) [CleanTechnica]


Amazon Phone Headphones
Gizmodo
  • Is Amazon Working on Its Own Music Subscription Service?
    In addition to the small library you get thrown in with a Prime subscription, that is. I wonder: If you only pay for this rumored new music service, will Amazon throw in a handful of random, not-very-good free shipping deliveries? It's like vice-versa, see?! [Android Police]

  • Is a Weather-Proof Nest Cam on the Way?
    Note the use of "weather-proof" not "water-proof" — because when you're asking consumers to think about your camera resisting falling drops of water, you want them to imagine the device surviving rain, not being brought in the shower. [Android Headlines]
