Rumored Swatch partnership could mean that iWatch is a platform, not a product from Apple
New rumors of the iWatch suggest that Apple's once rumored smartwatch may not be built by Apple itself, but through established watch brands like Swatch and Timex. While earlier rumors posited that the iWatch would be an actual Apple-made product, much in the same manner that the iPhone is Apple's smartphone, the latest round of rumors may indicate that Apple may be creating a smartwatch platform, and if true this mean that Apple could give Android Wear some serious competition.

Modern Combat 5 review - raising the bar for mobile action
Modern Combat 5 is the latest in a long series of high-quality first person shooter games from Gameloft. The whole Modern Combat series shamelessly riffs on popular shooter franchises like Call of Duty, and has been doing so well before official mobile counterparts for those games were made. Even now that Call of Duty has come to mobile, Modern Combat 5 still manages to give it a run for its money.
By and large, Modern Combat 5 is lock in step with Modern Combat 4. It boasts bar-setting graphics, rich multiplayer, familiar experience and achievement progression, a dazzling array of weapon customization, and top-notch voice acting. That's great and all, but there is one distinct difference in Modern Combat 5 which could easily stand as the sole selling point: there are zero in-app purchases.
