- Apple to cut prices?
GASP! My conspicuous consumption purchase is less status-symbol, now that the proles can afford one, too! (Also: My monocle has just fallen from my eye.)
- Tuvalu is sinking?
Which, of course, means that .tv domains will go away, too. Of course.

- A second, smaller Palm Pre in the works already?
Problem: The Pre already has such a vortex of rumor swirling about it that it was clear not everything could have been remotely true. Solution: Rumor that another phone is in the works. That means the rumor-capacity of the device has just doubled.
- Apple Media Pad?
Oh, for f@#%!'s sake, people! Not THIS rumor again?!
- Windows 7 released on October 23?
To help the Apple fanboys start their slander campaign, here is a list of historical disasters and world events that you can associate with the release of the new OS: At the Second Battle of Philippi, Brutus's army is decisively defeated by Mark Antony and Octavian in 42 BC; President Abraham Lincoln suspends the writ of habeas corpus in 1861; Lenin calls for the October Revolution in 1917; Odessa Massacre in which 19,000 are shot or burned by Romanian and German troops in 1941; The Smurfs appear for the first time in 1958; President Richard M. Nixon agrees to turn over audio tapes of the Watergate Scandal in 1973.
- World of Warcraft coming to the iPhone?
Why yes, that IS a Blood Elf warrior-shaman in my pocket.
