Apple Watch gets dunked and drilled, but comes out strong in durability tests — Yes, there are those willing to spend money on a top-flight gadget just to see how far you can push it before it breaks.

Facebook adds free video calling to Messenger — Users can now place free video calls with Messenger, as Facebook continues to extend the app beyond simple text-based chats.
With the feature, Facebook is also taking a jab at competing products like Apple’s FaceTime, Microsoft’s Skype and Google Hangouts. Facebook previously allowed video calling through its site on the desktop, but not within its Messenger app.
