Tag Heuer changes tune, now looking at smartwatches
La Chaux-De-Fonds, Switzerland (AFP) Dec 16, 2014
Barely a few months after dismissing Apple's smartwatch, the new chief executive of luxury Swiss watchmaker Tag Heuer conceded Tuesday that such a hi-tech gadget might after all have a place in his firm's line-up. "Initially, we were all a bit reticent," Jean-Claude Biver told reporters in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the Swiss city at the centre of the watchmaking industry. But he insisted that any new technology would not dilute the company's reputation for making luxury goods that last. "We will on ... read more

    Astrophysicist says wormholes of 'Interstellar' unlikely to exist
    In director Christopher Nolan's new film "Interstellar," actor Matthew McConaughey's character Cooper leads a crew of astronauts into deep space on a mission to save humanity. They travel by way of wormhole, a technique that has become of trope of intergalactic science fiction. Now, the expert who oversaw the film's scientific bonafides suggests traversable wormholes are unlikely to ever be a reality. ... more
