STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Tech Check: iPhone 5 rumors, Nintendo 3DS price slash are discussed
  • Tech Fail of the Week goes to a Twitter feed that didn't distinguish itself

(CNN) -- This week, on the Tech Check podcast, Doug Gross, Brandon Griggs and Stephanie Goldberg break down and discuss the latest iPhone 5 rumor (as well as the Apple rumor phenomenon itself).

The newest buzz came when a U.K. tech site posted what they said was a design for Apple's iPhone 5. Which, of course, doesn't exist yet. But, you know. Rumors are rumors.

(In fairness, a recent survey suggested that folks are plenty excited about the as-yet unannounced phone and would consider buying it despite the fact it doesn't exist).

We also break down what Nintendo's announcement that they'll be slashing the price of their handheld 3DS game system might mean.

Sales have been disappointing for the video game giant. Will the new price bolster sales, as has happened for e-readers, or be a sign of a fast slide to oblivion?

Our Reader Comments of the Week are about Apple. And goats. And Darth Vader. Seriously. You just have to listen.

And we hand out the Tech Fail of the Weekfor a tweet in the wake of Amy Winehouse's death that puts a new face on crass commercialism.
