Apple and the mysterious missing monitor Video Transcript
Hey, IÃ?m Karyne Levy. Welcome to Rumor Has It! The show that rounds up the week's biggest tech rumors. You can vote on what you think about the rumors, in the interactive player if you're watching on CNET. This week, we've got some Spotify news, new stuff possibly being added to Google Play, and 4K might be coming to an Apple device near you. Let's get started! Up first, Google Play for Android might get some new features, according to the blog Android Police. For example, you'd be able to edit reviews as well as delete them from within the app. The biggest new feature would be the introduction of an activity feed. It would let users view and share a stream of your activities as it pertains to the Play store, such as ratings, reviews, and +1s. And it would link through to a Google+ profile, thus helping Android users discover new content and potentially meet new contacts. Great. Google+ integration. So now all your friends can see how much ridiculous money you're spending on Candy Crush. Not that I spend ridiculous money on Candy Crush. And not that I know anyone who actually uses Google+. And finally, on Friday, IDG News Service and other Apple blogs posted news about a Sharp 32-inch 4K display for sale on Apple's European online stores for a measly sum of 3,500 euros, which is about $5,700. Cheap! Apple's new Retina MacBook Pros are able to support a 4K monitor, and the upcoming Mac Pro can handle up to three 4K displays. We don't know what the specific launch date is for the Mac Pro, and it turns out that we don't know the launch date for these monitors, either, because on Sunday night Pacific Time, MacRumors noticed that Apple removed the mystery display from its site. Most likely, the listing went up early on accident, and most likely this signifies that the Mac Pros are coming soon. We hope. --- What do you guys think? Does anyone care about 4K other than graphic designers and video editors? Do you think Apple will eventually make its own Apple-branded 4K displays? Would you pay 5 grand for a monitor? Don't forget to vote in our poll, and leave a comment. ThatÃ?s our show! Share your rumors at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 1-800-750-CNET. And tweet us! This is our last show before I take a little break for the winter. So please have a safe and happy holiday, and I'll see you guys in a few weeks!
