Apple has released a new version of the Apple Watch every year since its debut in 2015, and the company seems to show no signs of slowing down. Here we have compiled all the latest rumors, leaks, and reasonably well-informed speculation about Apple Watch Series 4.

No more mechanical buttons

New Tesla software to offer 'full' autonomy, Musk says

Top Stories - Mon, 06/11/2018 - 11:45

An update to Tesla's Autopilot software coming in August will enable "full self-driving features" for the automaker's electric cars, chief executive Elon Musk says. Musk's comments come amid a race by automakers and tech firms to roll out fully autonomous vehicles, but also rising concerns about the safety of robotic systems. The Tesla founder made the disclosure in a Twitter conversation, responding to a user who complained about issues with Autopilot, which is currently considered semi-autonomous with the requirement that a motorist be at the wheel at all times.


US sends junior official to open its de facto embassy in Taiwan, as it seeks to avoid Beijing's anger

Top Stories - Mon, 06/11/2018 - 11:30

The United States is due to open a new embassy in Taiwan on Tuesday, but plans to send a junior minister to avoid igniting a diplomatic row with China. Beijing, which does not recognise Taiwan as a state independent from China, has mounted a concerted campaign over the past two years to lure away the few remaining countries that recognise Taipei.  The US, a major backer of Taipei, made a $1.42 billion arms deal with the island state in 2017, and spent $250 million (£187 million) on the new de facto embassy.  However, in order to assuage China's anger, the US will not send a top-level official to the opening of its de facto embassy in Taiwan on Tuesday, a signal that Donald Trump does not want to provoke Beijing. Speculation had mounted earlier this year that national security adviser John Bolton would be sent to the opening of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT). At a glance | The One China policy Instead, Marie Royce, assistant secretary of state for educational and cultural affairs, will open the AIT, Washington said. Beijing views Taiwan as a breakaway province, which will be reunited with the mainland by force if necessary. The US gave up official diplomatic ties with Taipei in 1979 when it switched recognition to Beijing, but Washington remains a powerful ally of Taiwan. The new AIT offices are being unveiled amid heightened concerns in Beijing over increasing US involvement in Taiwan. Mr Trump in March signed the Taiwan Travel Act, which will allow more official visits between the US and Taipei. Washington also agreed to help Taipei build its own submarines, a move which Chinese media said made war "more probable" between China and Taiwan. The US is embroiled in a major trade row with China, but is keen to avoid a diplomatic fallout as it needs Beijing's help to solve the North Korea nuclear issue. Taiwan, meanwhile, has become increasingly marginalised on the international stage with the loss of diplomatic allies who previously recognised the government of the self-ruled island, but have now switched to Beijing. The West African state of Burkina Faso said it was severing ties with Taiwan last month, following similar moves from the Dominican Republic, Sao Tome and Principe and Panama.  Additional reporting by Christine Wei
