KARYNE: Hey, I�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, too, in
the interactive player if you're watching on CNET.
This week we've got a quickie about the PlayStation, but
more importantly: iPhone iPhone iPhone. Let us begin!
STORY 1: First, as competition heats up between Microsoft
and Sony, Sony is said to be adding voice recognition to its
PlayStation 4, according to Polygon.
The feature will be included in the PlayStation Eye, a
separate $60 accessory. It's reportedly similar to Microsoft's
Xbox One Kinect 2 capabilities, in that it has facial
recognition technology and can follow navigational voice
So now all you Microsoft users won't be the only ones
yelling at your TV. Everyone can look like crazy people
together, no matter what system you use.
STORY 2: And finally, this is it, everyone. Apple sent an
invite for its September 10 event. Because of this, we might
not have a Rumor Has It next week -- because I'll be too
So here's a roundup of what we suspect will happen:
We think two phones will be announced: the iPhone 5S,
which is an update of the 5, and a lower-cost 5C.
With the 5S, we know it'll have iOS 7, but that's about it. It
could come in 3 or even 4 colors; it might have a bigger
screen; it might have a fingerprint reader; and it most likely
will have the new A7 chip.
People want NFC, including myself, but so far all signs point
Most of what we think we know about the 5C is that it'll
come in pink, yellow, blue and green, and it could have a
plastic case. Some people have speculated that it won't
include Siri and it may be for emerging markets.
Again, we don't know that the 5C will even be announced,
but the event invite, which looks like a game of Dots, hints
at something colorful and all those leaked pictures we've
been seeing are totally convincing.
I think that the 5C is definitely going to happen.
