Two days before its intended launch, Modern Combat 5 was leaked to gamers everywhere via torrent. Gameloft is understandably livid. In a perhaps futile effort to stem the tide of users illegally acquiring the game because of the lack of an official launch, Gameloft rushed to push the game’s release ahead by one day.
Apple has a long history of antagonizing its competitors, be it the award winning "1984" Super Bowl commercial which depicts IBM as a totalitarian menace, the "Toasted" ad which ridicules Intel processors for being too slow, or the long running "Get a Mac" ad campaign which pit a svelt and witty Justin Long ("Mac") against a frumpy and stodgy John Hodgman ("PC"). Given the aforementioned legacy, no one should be surprised when Apple takes jabs at Google and its Android operating system. What is surprising is watching Tim Cook get on stage at WWDC (World Wide Developers Conference) to spread misinformation.
Over the last couple of weeks since we announced that we are looking for writers, we've been going through each and every application that was sent into us. The response was, to say the least, overwhelming. This is a good thing because we had a lot of qualified applicants submit their emails of interest in writing for the site. This was also a difficult thing because we actually had to make a decision on who to take on as new writers.
Last week we posted an open invitation for anyone interested in getting in on becoming a part of the DroidGamers team as a nighttime / weekend writer to submit their applications via email. Needless to say there was a huge response to this. In fact there were so many applications submitted for the two positions that we had announced as being available that we've decided to make five opening available instead of just two.
