His family, in particular his wife Marianne, are among the few that he completely trusts. Hayek repeatedly emphasised how important a supporting role his wife provided: "Without her I would have got no further than being a stationmaster," he once said.

Steven Bathiche of Microsoft works with a TV screen that uses light-steering technology for 3-D effects. Traditional 3-D technology used for movie screens and television superimposes or alternates two views, using filters or shutters in the glasses to select a view for each eye. This creates an illusion of depth. But a new generation of devices, many of them hand-held and now in prototype, dispense with the pesky glasses. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
