Apple Releases iOS 11.1.2 to Fix Bug Causing Unresponsive iPhone X Screen in Cold Weather

Apple already confirmed that they were working on a fix for the issue, and, as it turns out, that fix is ready to go. Today, Apple officially released iOs 11.1.2, which primarily focuses on the aforementioned bug. Specifically, this update will address the issue that causes some iPhone X touchscreen to become momentarily unresponsive while in cold weather. Or, as put by Apple, “after a rapid temperature drop.”

Apple’s first diversity chief is leaving after less than a year

Apple’s diversity is improving, but it’s still far from where it should be and is moving at a slow pace. Some of that is because the company has to wait for turnover and new hires in order to change things, so it’s hard to tell how much of an impact Smith has had during her time in the role. But from the looks of things, Apple’s leadership team doesn’t seem to have been happy with the ways things were going, as this seems like a very sudden departure.

Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 really is a beautiful beast

As you would expect for a workhorse laptop – even a hybrid like this – the Surface Book 2 maintains its supply of ports. There are still two USB 3.1 ports and an SD card slot on the left side of the keyboard. The right side though is home to one of the most important port changes Microsoft has made in the history of the Surface brand. There’s finally a USB-C port. It’s there for data or charging, though you can’t grab just any USB charger. I tried a USB-C cable plugged into a Samsung charger and the system informed me that the computer wasn’t charging and that I should use a recommended USB-C charger.

OnePlus 5T announced with bigger screen, new camera system, and a headphone jack

Launching its new flagship phone today, OnePlus joins in on the hottest trend of 2017 by nixing the display bezels, but it resists the urge to participate in another popular change by retaining its headphone jack. The new OnePlus 5T is only slightly taller than the OnePlus 5, however it fits a full 6-inch OLED display in roughly the same footprint as the earlier 5.5-inch device. OnePlus has also reworked its dual-camera system, making the secondary camera a dedicated low-light shooter, and it’s refined the already polished and appealing design of the 5 to a perfect finish. If you loved the OnePlus 5 , but just wanted to see it with one of those fancy bezel-deprived displays, this new phone is the answer to your hopes.

Uber sued by rider alleging rape, driver said to have violent past

He allegedly assaulted her and then drove her home. The next morning, hospital doctors confirmed the woman had been raped, according to court documents.

Amazon's Last Mile

Amazon considers these companies, just like individual Flexers, to be contractors, though drivers still have to run Amazon’s software while working, and still have to pass a check from Accurate Background. “We have to background check the guys [that deliver Amazon packages]. We have to use their background check company. They won’t even tell us what the criteria is,” a California-based courier business owner said with clear frustration. A dispatcher for another last-mile courier claimed that applicants who don’t pass Accurate Background’s vetting simply aren’t hired by the company he works for. UPS spokesman Dan McMackin told Gizmodo that Amazon is not a threat to UPS—whose drivers are both full employees and the single largest contingent of long-lived Teamsters labor union—because “ecommerce is bigger than one customer.” In his opinion, good courier work requires a skilled, consistent workforce, and retaining that pool of labor means providing solidly middle-class wages and benefits. However much he claims to dislike doing business with large, often pushy customers, the California courier said he finally agreed work with a company like Amazon because, “the writing’s on the wall that Amazon’s gonna take over the whole delivery industry in the next ten years.

Architecture’s UX Problem

Vent covered with packing tape. [Photo: Julia Day] In architecture, the rise of LEED and other technical standards for architectural efficiency has led to more nuanced forms of what’s known as “post-occupancy evaluation,” or testing and understanding whether a building is really meeting the energy benchmarks it set out to hit. But those numbers-driven studies need to be augmented with qualitative research talking to the people who actually use the buildings, Day points out. “It doesn’t matter how well our buildings are ‘performing’ if the people in the buildings are miserable,” she writes. As the study shows, miserable occupants can lead to less efficient buildings when people disable systems designed to make their buildings better.

The Dangerous Problem Of Gender Bias In Healthcare Design

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that women comprise over 75% of the workforce in healthcare and social assistance – hospital workers, home healthcare workers, and people who work in doctors’ offices. Humans are a diverse species, and as any anthropometric survey will point out women are generally smaller than men. They’ll also point out ethnic size differences. People from the Philippines and India, for example, tend to be smaller than people from Germanic countries. Larger bodies correlate with larger and stronger hands, smaller bodies with smaller and less-strong hands. This diversity is not a problem as long as we consider its scope and design products to accommodate everyone. But we don’t.

Genetically Engineering the Natural World, it Turns Out, Could Be a Disaster

For the native species of New Zealand, European settlement was particularly cruel. The country has no endemic land predators, so many of its birds evolved without the typical avian aptitude for flight. Then came Western settlers, and along with them rats, mice, opossums, stoats, cats, and the occasional misbehaving dog . For these invaders, New Zealand’s flightless birds were a veritable feast. Numbers dwindled. Despite conservation efforts, the country still loses about 20 of its namesake kiwi birds every week .
