Sony revealing an iTunes-like store in 2011?
Ha! Yeah! And they'll probably try to make it all "social" too! Give it the ability to share what you like with friends, but forget to hook it up to the largest social networking site on the Internet and it just stagnates as a "closed box" system that no one will ever seriously use! Yeah, that's totally a "Sony move". *cough*
New Zune HD in 2011?
Whoa, slow down there, Microsoft! No need to rush into anything half-cocked! (Actually, since the first Zune HD came out in 2009, this IS a pretty good turn-around time for them.)
YouTube to offer premium movie rentals?
You know who owns YouTube? Google. You know what Google is working on? Google TV, a set-top-box video delivery service. Therefore, I call this one "plausible"! What's this?! Informed commentary within the Rumor Roundup?! I have let you all down.
