We've got tech rumors! Like there's ever a lack of tech rumors to report on, right? This week: Did a startup called Lytro just revolutionize photography with something called a Light Field Camera? Why did Nokia launch the sexy new N9 if it's built on a "burning platform?" And what's Sea Ray, anyway? Hulu's for sale, but is anyone buying? Google TV 2.0 is in some developers' hands - are they liking it? And like that kid who won't stop talking during math class (but you miss him when he's absent) iPhone rumors are baaaack!
Rumor Roundup is a show taking a look at the latest trends, rumors, and leaks buzzing around the technology industry hosted by Noah Kravitz - a well-known and respected tech editor who's been involved in the industry for years. Not only does Noah deliver the news in full force, but he also provides his analytical thoughts and insight leaving one wondering of what lies ahead in the world of tech.
First up is news out of Silicon Valley about a start-up that came out of stealth mode this week. Lytro made a splash unveiling their Light Field Camera, which uses new technology to take what the company calls "living photographs." These digital images capture all available light in the field, which results in a file that you can focus and refocus on any point you like. Can Lytro live up to its "Shoot now, focus later" slogan?
Earlier this week Nokia launched the N9, a sleek, sexy smartphone running MeeGo, the Linux-based operating system that the company all but left for dead when they partnered with Microsoft to support Windows Phone 7. Then Nokia CEO Stephon Elop "leaked" an N9 lookalike device to a small audience, knowing full well there are camera-toting reporters in the room. Turns out this new device, codenamed "Sea Ray," was running WP7. What in the world is Elop, a former Microsoft executive, up to? See video of Sea Ray at: http://www.technobuffalo.com/companies/nokia/nokias-first-windows-phone-7-device-shown-off-in-video/
Hulu's up for sale. But why? And what might negotiations between the broadcasters who own them and various cable companies mean for its future? Also, Google's seeded some developers with Google TV 2.0 hardware ‚ and it supports 3D gaming! That could mean nothing, but it could make GTV much more interesting this time around.

And yes, what would a rumors show be without some iPhone gossip? Last week everyone was certain a minor iPhone upgrade was in the works for this Fall. Now we're all talking about a radical redesign featuring a teardrop-shaped profile and a larger, bezel-less display. What will be the buzz next week?
