5:41 /

A rumored standalone Facebook app would broadcast your location to all your Facebook friends whether you are using it or not. Finally, stalking without all the hard work!

-- curry leaves me and I'm Emily Dreyfuss and welcome to rumor has -- that show where we round up the week's biggest tech -- and we felt and what sounds -- seems like it will never ever happen and remember that you can -- on all of the rumors -- so keep your eye out for the -- in interactive player if you're watching -- -- First up there's a rumor we've been talking about four ever -- pandora killer service built into iTunes. -- in a freshly killed broke an iPad nine to five Mac discovered a set of buttons and code referencing a radio with an IOS six. Bring your buttons are already -- and iTunes on Macs and PCs but so far they have not been available on the iPad or -- I found. There's also another button suggesting that you can make purchases via the radio feature presumably from -- to. Now rumors that Apple has how to streaming music service in the works had been floating around for years but they heated up last year as talks and the labels advanced. England -- -- won't ever die. But I just point out that these radio mentions -- the code could just be remnants left over from Mac OS the developers didn't bother to take out -- duplicating for IOS -- your panties too much and it list. Huge you're getting it down which is now actually a private company again bra. That's a reference to old Dell commercials young and I bring it up because of rumors that Dell was going to leave the public sphere and take the company private again. Have come true with the announcement on Tuesday of a 24 point four billion dollar deal between CEL and co-founder Michael Dell. And the investment firm silver lake partners. Dell's been struggling of -- obviously -- deal with this move back to becoming a private company is that Michael Dell can attempt to do what's necessary in order to save the company -- -- the intense pressure shareholders. Yeah and don't forget Microsoft's two billion dollar loan to help Michael Dell -- just -- This is because Microsoft believes in your planned about separating good sign. Except as yet another rumor that we've been talking about a lot especially lately but not because they sell exciting. Weeks ago we mentioned that Sony vice president of home entertainment said that we should expect -- PlayStation four announcement sometime in the spring. Perhaps the four. Last week in -- were sent out for a big event in New York on February 20 at the invitation -- nothing specific and the accompanying video is just things flying around with. Cool music. But then the Wall Street Journal said citing people familiar with the matter obviously. That the PS or will indeed be unveiled at the February 20 and -- into the machine will go on sale all. Later this year which means that I might be wrong I've always thought Edward come out -- 2014 and -- The journal's sources also said that Sony will add more social gaming features focusing on producing -- -- gadget hardware. But on how players and act with the device. And according to the journal optical drive has not been dropped as previous rumors have management. Gaming site Kotaku also -- its ideas and the next saying that got its hands on official documentation from super guy about the PS four's controller. Every ten he supposedly had -- insider info about the next can -- So according to and the design would basically remain the city only would incorporate motion sensing -- touch pad so the one on the back of Sony's portable PlayStation -- I can't wait I'm so excited I'm gonna get kingdom hearts -- it all came to move on. This book is said to be readying an -- for tracking your friends in real life yeah. Sounds creepy to meet. Bloomberg is reporting that next month based -- reveal a mobile app the will alert you when you're near your friends. The worst part is it will broadcast through location even when you're not using FaceBook. So it's like foursquare for lazy people your checked in everywhere you go without even having to do anything exactly. And instead of becoming a mayor of -- you frequent as a prize you just gets more efficiently -- the forgot your friends on FaceBook. I addition a couple of scenarios where this would be cool saying -- -- a -- game -- concert. Put it up concert and get also FaceBook and listen to be sick or likely it'll just make me wary of -- people on FaceBook who I wouldn't want to run into in the real world. We don't FaceBook friends that we only want to interact with online rather readmitted are not okay but much worse than act. What is auto checks me into Photoshop and I happen to be marked out front. One -- -- -- McDonald's in the middle of the night I don't people knowing about that. That's my secret shame -- her -- to opt out of the location services that. Here's something even easier it is opt to not download this and -- it won't even be an issue which is exactly what -- You guys do you think that FaceBook will give us a standalone way to stock each other with minimal -- -- don't forget to vote while we they'll ask the CNET council when they think. The CNET -- composed of five editors who cast their ballots anonymously their opinions -- not endorsement by CNET or CBS act obviously because these are rumors folks. And -- council's verdict EX. You you can't see yes what -- writes since there will be no place I'd seriously. The only good part about this being our ultimate show together is that I get to save my favorite work -- -- -- Stay tuned next week for our two -- -- special. Fine okay but can we do -- Google+ hang out. That's our -- ready. -- carrier rumors that rumor has it at cnet.com or call us at 1075. Us CNET and tweet us and -- in -- for the last show are all in green tech.
