Spiders prompt Suzuki to issue a recall, Samsung introduces a Smart Watch, and how would you like a lifetime of free Taco Bell!?

Suzuki is recalling more than 19,000 mid-sized cars due to spiders.

The automaker says spider webs can clog a fuel vapor vent hose in some 2010 to 2013 Kiz-Ashi's.

A clogged vent can cause cracks and fuel leaks in the gas tank.

Suzuki says they'll replace the hose with a vent-line, featuring a filter on the end.


Samsung has unveiled what it says is the first Smart Watch capable of making a receiving calls without a mobile phone nearby.

The Gear-S has a 2-inch curved display and offers features like Wi-Fi connectivity, pedestrian navigation and a built-in GPS.

It'll hit the U.S. Market in October.

No word yet on a price.
