SLIDESHOW: iPhone 6 And iPhone 7 Rumors, Hot Chromebooks And More From The Second Week Of November

Never content to enjoy the current-generation iPhone, the rumor mill has quickly shifted its attention to Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone 6 -- and iPhone 7 (or iPhone 6S).

Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) made headlines after its co-founder and CEO, Elon Musk, said that the company would not issue a Model S recall.

The automaker got into the news once more after an industrial accident occurred at its factory in Fremont, California, injuring three workers.

Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ) and Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) earned a few headlines as well after discovering that the Chromebook 11 was a bit hotter (literally!) than previously expected.

Snapchat stunned the world when it rejected Facebook's (NASDAQ: FB) $3 billion offer.

And Sony made the first move toward prosperity in China.

    No Recall For Tesla's Model S

    No Recall For Tesla's Model S

    Investors who feared a Model S recall need to stop worrying.

    Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) co-founder and CEO insisted that a recall will not happen.

    "There's definitely not gonna be a recall," he told CNBC. "There's no reason for a recall."

    "The headlines are extremely misleading," Musk added. "We've never had a serious injury or death in any of our cars. Maybe there is a car that is as safe as a Model S, but there is certainly not a car that is safer, because you'd have to have less than zero [deaths]."

    Snapchat Rejected Facebook's $3 Billion Offer

    Snapchat Rejected Facebook's $3 Billion Offer

    When Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) resisted the offer to be acquired by Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), it made sense.

    Groupon had a lot going for it -- and the potential to make billions all on its own.

    Snapchat, on the other hand, is a simple messaging service that combines photos, videos and text. It may or may not be a fad that dies off in five years.

    Even so, Facebook (NASDQ: FB) reportedly offered to buy the company for $3 billion.

    Not wanting to sell, Snapchat's owners rejected the offer.
