I have predicted, that if the republicans get a hold of all 3 branches and pull their big rich tax cut scam, we're in for another big recession not far down the road.

The economy is going well because of the work in the 8 years of Obama, these fools are scamming people into thinking all this Trump economic tomfoolery is going to give everybody big raises great healthcare blah blah.

All thats going to happen is things will heat up, and when everything crashes the rich douchebags (like Mnuchin who scooped up all the foreclosures last time and made a mint...)  are going to vacuum up all the leftovers like they did last time.

Not going to be pretty.

This minor update fixes a flaw that could cause the iPhone X screen to become unresponsive in the cold, and one other bug.



Last week, we mentioned reports that the iPhone X touch screen could become unresponsive in very cold weather. Apple said it was aware of the problem, uncommon as it was, and would issue a fix in software.

Today, the company makes good on its promise with iOS 11.1.2. It fixes two bugs. From the release notes:

Fixes an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop.
Addresses an issue that could cause distortion in Live Photos and videos captured with iPhone X.
The release comes shortly after the 11.1.1 update that fixes the notorious A [?] bug, and as Apple works on iOS 11.2, which will add faster wireless charging and Apple Pay Cash.
