On this week's show, we discuss the latest iPhone 5 release date rumors, Samsung's possible Retina Display, and an alleged new tablet from Sony, and we wonder if Apple is really interested in buying a stake in Twitter.The New York Times came out with a report over the weekend describing talks between Apple and the 140-character proselytizer. The report alleged that Apple has considered buying a minority stake in Twitter, a company that hasn't yet filed an IPO. The Wall Street Journal chimed in to say the talks were more than a year ago, and its … Read more
June was cruel to the iPad, which saw its tablet competition grow fearsome.
Microsoft showed off its Surface tablet, which is aimed squarely at stealing iPad lovers away with the lure of its keyboard case (though without pricing, launch date, or any real details, it's hard to know if the iPad has anything to fear). Not to be left behind, Google took the wraps off its much-rumored and ballyhooed 7-inch Nexus Tablet. All that excitement was enough to wake the dead; in this case, it reanimated the iPad Mini rumor, which had been laid to rest.
Not anymore! Analysts … 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
But since the mere acknowledgment of an iPad announcement on March 7 makes me the loser of the game show this month (sad face), we come up with an ingenious plan to find out the true identity of the iPad as soon as it's announced!
No, not by live-blogging or finagling another invite to the event from Apple (pshaw), but rather by filming me … 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
It's our 20th episode, which means we break out the expensive rose champagne from the bodega and celebrate in style.
Is it just us, or is the whole world full of chocolates and roses and wine and sunshine today in honor of our momentous achievement? It's like February 14 will forever be known as the day Rumor Has It hit 20 episodes and we decided to bet all our chips on the iPad 3 (or 2S) coming out in March. Thanks, world! We love you, too!
On today's show, we run down the litany of iPad 3 … Read more
Today's episode blew our minds. And not just because it was Humiliation Day.
First Emily embarrassed herself by revealing her hidden talents; then she discovered her old lady cowboy voice; then Karyne did a "face mic," which is basically a face palm but using a mic; and then Amazon killed us with the possibility of opening brick-and-mortar stores to sell (drum roll, please): BOOKS! Say what?
Best Buy put out a survey starring the iTV this week, only to tell us later that the survey was "hypothetical." You know what else is hypothetical, Best Buy? … 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
It's Tuesday again, and this time we are prepared.
On today's show, code in iBooks 2 points to possible Retina Display iPad; Casio does something other than make keyboards; our favorite people on Earth, analysts, comment on the upcoming year for Netflix; and we have a couple guesses about who Anonymous will attack next.
Also next week, or maybe the week after, is Humiliation Day. You know what's different about this Humiliation Day? For once, Karyne isn't the big loser. If you have any Humiliation Day ideas for Emily, or if you have any ideas about … 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
