Apple Hires Away TAG Heuer's VP of Global Sales 67

An anonymous reader writes With Apple rumored to be entering the wearables market this Fall, the company's string of notable hires continues. CNBC is reporting today that Apple recently poached Patrick Pruniaux away from TAG Heuer where he served as the company's VP of global sales for the past five years. TAG Heuer, in case you're unfamiliar, is a Swiss-based manufacturer of luxury watches. Word of the Pruniaux hire comes just shortly after it was discovered that Apple hired the lead software engineer away from Atlas Wearables, a company working on a fitness tracker capable of measuring a plethora of exercise related data.

    "Sapphire display glass." A Red Herring. The Corning "Gorilla Glass" product currently available is incredibly scratch resistant and costs 1/10th the price.

    Guess what the glass on an iPhone is? Yes, Gorilla Glass!

    Ever since the very first iPhone - Apple actually was the company that got Corning to resurrect it (Corning actually shelved the idea because it wasn't commercially viable), and the glass has been Gorilla Glass ever since then.
