A PowerPoint presentation posted to NeoGAF forums claims to divulge Microsoft's secret product launch plans. No, not the launch codes -- this isn't a nuclear crisis, though the excitement among Xbox gamers is verging on nuclear. (See what I did there?) The document has NOT been authenticated, and Microsoft is mum on the issue, but its contents are in line with previous rumors. … Read more
On CNET's newest on-demand show, you'll get all the hottest rumor news, plus you can try to outsmart the hosts by voting in our weekly poll. On every show we'll put one rumor up for a vote; once you, the viewer, and the hosts have weighed in, we let CNET's anonymous Council of Experts decide who was on the right track.
This week in rumor land, Apple surprised nobody by not announcing the next iPhone or the much-ballyhooed Apple television. Did that stop the speculations from flying? Of course not. This is America.
The biggest thing … Read more
Back on Episode 3, Emily was on vacation, and put all her faith and trust in Sharon Vaknin. We took a vote on whether Microsoft would reveal the next-generation Xbox at E3 2012 (Sharon said yes, I said no). Well this week, Microsoft told everyone not to expect a new Xbox anytime soon, which means I won a point! It also means that Sharon and Emily are in a fight.
Today's show gets wild and crazy with two Windows 8 rumors, but no iPad rumors. Imagine that. Will Lenovo be the first to launch a Windows 8 tablet? Rumors … Read more
We start out today's show with a very important message to all you copycats out there: give credit where credit is due! And that's all we have to say about that.
Whew! Tomorrow's iPad event means we can finally stop talking about the elusive iPad...3? Or maybe it's the iPad HD? Or maybe it's the iPad YouKnowYouWantOne? We'll find out tomorrow, where undoubtedly a million points will get on the board. And then we can finally put that baby to rest.
Also on today's show, we talk about something not Apple related (if you can believe it), play our Yay or Nay game (copyright, trademark, all rights reserved 2012), and count how many accents Emily whips out. (Our last count was nine.)… Read more
We finally put the celebratory Champagne away after last week's episode, just in time to bring you a ton of new rumors, hot off the rumor mill press.
Wouldn't that make our jobs so much easier? If there were an actual rumor mill press? Since there's not, Emily divulged that she did some research on Wikipedia and IMDb this week. She really pulled out all the stops!
In honor of our 21st episode, because we always find something to celebrate, we brought on special guest Madissen De Turris! And she even brought us presents! We love that. … Read more
To celebrate Mark Zuckerberg maybe possibly loosening his death grip on Facebook, Karyne and I give you a little Econ 101 lesson.
Kidding! No we don't. All I learned in Econ 101 was that there is apparently no such thing as a free lunch (then what was that pizza I just found abandoned in the kitchen and ate, hmm?) and that the more scarce a thing is, the more money it will cost.
But scarcity might explain why unvested stocks of Facebook have been some of the highest valued and most traded on SecondMarket--a market to trade stocks in … Read more
Rumor Has It gets the dubious honor of being the last show live on the CNET main stage of CES 2012, and we use it to cry, "The iPad 3 is coming! The iPad 3 is coming!"
After spending seven full days in the city of sin, covering a bazillion and two live blogs, running around the show floor looking for pretty objects, and editing the glut of content CNET produced from CES, we somehow slap on our fancy pants, shellac on some lipstick, and make this show happen.
This show is a record-breaker for many reasons; first … Read more
LAS VEGAS--CES 2012 ended with a bang, and CNET was there till the bitter, exhausted, don't know what to do with ourselves, end.
What better way to end the week than to dish about all the products we saw (and didn't see) and what it means for the tech world at large? And what better place to have a gambling show than in the gambling capital of the universe? Exactly.
In this episode, Apple rumors abound (of course), Angry Birds has basically jumped the shark big time, and where was HTC's quad-core phone? Also, Humiliation Day! And … Read more
This week, we explain why Google is petty and doesn't want Yahoo to find true love; we learn what a G-Stream is; Sony may take its PS4 cues from game developers; and Apple might ruin Karyne's life by making her buy yet another power cord.
The show opens with no movement on the points board, and you know what that means: I'm going to win this month, and Karyne has to go on air next week dressed as Little Bo Peep. That is going to be my favorite day ever! If you guys have a better idea for something she should wear, leave ideas in the comments section. Anything that's better than Bo Peep shall be considered.… Read more
Emily is home from Chile, and is welcomed back with an Ice Cream Sandwich rumor, a couple iPad rumors, and the duck timer, which we ignore, as usual.
On last week's show, we bet that the Droid Razr would be announced today and alas, it was! The score is now 3 to 2, which means someone is going to have to do something totally embarrassing in the next couple weeks.
Also this week, we unravel some Ice Cream Sandwich details; Emily gets all riled up about Amazon buying poor Palm; we remind ourselves that Sony Ericsson isn't actually Sony; we discuss the likelihood of an iPad mini and an iPad 3 next year; and we wonder why Angry Birds-maker Rovio would want to go public. Does it have anything to do with the CEO's nickname being "Mighty Eagle"? We hope so. … Read more
