Darth Vader's return

How will they do it?

This week, Xbox rumors are back, making Karyne hyperventilate; Google might release its own Chromebook by the end of the year; and we have a very bad feeling about these "Star Wars" rumors.

As you know, Disney purchased Lucasfilm recently, giving it the rights to the "Star Wars" franchise. (On a side note, George Lucas took all the profit from the sale and donated it to charity to improve American public education. Seriously, he is the greatest American alive.) But fans everywhere are letting their imaginations run wild, worrying about what Disney will do to the series. Animate it? Set it to music? On this show, we discuss the worst rumor of all, which sort of suggests that Darth Vader will be the newest zombie villain.

Let us know in the comments what you think Disney plans for "Star Wars." The best idea will be a comment of the week on the next show.

And we want to give a shout out to CNET's own "Star Wars" expert Jeff Sparkman, who consulted on this episode and who is often our only hope.

Thanks for watching!
