iPhone X Shipping Estimates Improve to 3-4 Weeks in the United States and Canada

iPhone X shipping estimates have now improved to 3 to 4 weeks in the United States and Canada, up from a previous shipping estimate of 5 to 6 weeks.



The updated 3 to 4 week shipping estimate applies to all carriers, colors, and capacities, and it means that orders placed today will arrive right around the beginning of December rather than later in the month.






Earlier today, iPhone X shipping estimates improved to 3 to 4 weeks in countries Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East, while shipping estimates were still at 5 to 6 weeks in North America, but now the iPhone X lists the 3 to 4 week shipping estimate in all first wave launch countries.



With shipping estimates improving, customers who have already placed an order for the iPhone X are also seeing their prospective delivery dates bumped up in many cases, and as available supply grows, delivery estimates should continue to improve further.



Just this afternoon, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple is working to increase production week by week to get the iPhone X to as many customers as possible as fast as possible.




As it’s already November 3 in many countries around the world, the first iPhone X models are in the hands of customers. Apple’s U.S. launch will kick off in the United States at 8:00 a.m. local time, with those on the east coast being the first to get the new devices.

CBS2 Exclusive: Bronx Residents Complain About Bottle Collectors Rummaging Through Their Trash

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Trespassing for trash?

As CBS2’s Reena Roy exclusively reported, strangers have been rummaging through people’s garbage in the Country Club section of the Bronx, hoping to make a quick buck.

One man was caught on camera walking down a driveway as if he owned the place. Turns out, he was trespassing, hunting for treasure.

“It bothers me,” resident Danielle Desantis said. “Yeah I don’t feel comfortable with somebody walking up to my property.”

“Creeped out,” said Arlene Grauer. “You find strangers and you don’t know what they’re doing.”

People say the stealthy scavengers scan the area for bottles and cans to steal then deposit for a nickel each. Many say they spot the collectors on their properties almost daily, lugging massive bags spilling over with plastic and taking over the sidewalks and streets.

“If you have strange people walking in your neighborhood coming into your property, how would you feel?” one man asked.

“It’s just a tremendous invasion of privacy to be in your own home and hear someone rummaging around through your own backyard,” said President of the Country Club Civic Association Michael McNerney.

Even chasing them down doesn’t deter them, Roy reported.

“I’ve chased them from people’s houses, yelled at them. And they yell back,” Grauer said.

“If you say something to them, they’ll look at you and then just move on and continue down the block and do it,” the man added.

Some residents are taking matters into the own hands, now hiding their recycling in the garage or waiting until the last minute to put it out. They’re also scratching off bar codes, making the bottles worthless.

Despite several community meetings, plus enforcement and patrolling from the 45th Precinct, the problem has seemingly gotten worse in the past few months.

“We don’t want to see that happening anymore. We want people to be comfortable in their own homes,” McNerney said.

Police told CBS2 they have ticketed at least three people in the area for criminal trespassing. They hope that will send a message to keep off private property.

House Republicans Reveal Tax Reform Plan

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork) – After much anticipation, House Republicans revealed their tax reform plan Thursday morning.

The announcement was delayed by a day.

The plan is the first major revamp of the tax system in three decades. It slashes the corporate tax rate and also lowers tax rates for many.

As CBS2’s Alice Gainer reported, President Donald Trump praised the tax cut plan.

“We’re working to give the American people a giant tax cut for Christmas,’ Trump said. “We are giving them a big, beautiful Christmas present.”

When it comes to your 401(k) retirement account, the new plan would leave the rules as is.

But the plan limits the deduction for mortgage interest for new home loans of $500,000 or less – in a steep reduction from the current $1 million.

The plan also reduces the number of tax brackets from seven down to four – with tax rates of 12, 25 and 35 percent. It keeps the top tax bracket at 39.6 percent for top earners.

This simplifies the personal tax code – your return could fit on a postcard. But some two-income, upper middle class families would pay more after being bumped into a higher tax bracket.

The bill also aims to double the standard deduction from $12,000 to $24,000. According to GOP leaders, this – combined with an increase in the child tax credit – means middle-income families would pay less.

“If you’ve got some kids, take that number of kids and multiply it by $600, because that’s the increase in your per child tax credit,” said House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin).

Ryan said a typical family of four would save $1,182 a year on their taxes.

Meanwhile, supporters are facing opposition from both sides over changes to state and local tax deductions.

The plan eliminates the deduction for state and local income taxes, and caps the deduction for state and local property taxes at $10,000.

“The federal government shouldn’t be picking winners and losers and giving high state tax folks an advantage over low state tax,” said U.S. Rep. Dave Brat (R-Virginia).

It is a tough sell for lawmakers, who say middle income families in their states rely on the deduction – and the elimination of state and local tax deductions cost them more money.

“The priorities of the Ryan-McConnell bill have been clear from the start, perpetuating a catastrophic transfer of wealth from the middle-class to corporations and the wealthy,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California)

Republicans in high-tax states like New York and New Jersey also strongly opposed the state and local deduction eliminations.

“You’re taking money from a state like New York to pay for deeper tax cuts elsewhere,” said U.S. Rep. Lee Zedlin (R-New York). “As of right now, if this bill came to the floor in its current form, I’d be a no.”

Fellow Republicans congressmen Peter King and Dan Donovan agree.

On the Democratic side, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), tweeted: “I’ll sum up the new Republican tax plan: The super-rich and big corporations get kickbacks, middle class Americans are left in the dust.”

Lauren Lyons of Business Insider said average New Yorkers could be hit particularly hard.

“We could definitely see our tax bills increasing,” Lyons said.

Another part of the plan with which many take issue is the change to mortgage interest deduction.

Current homeowners could keep the deduction, but future purchases would be capped at $500,000 instead of the $1 million limit. The deduction would also be eliminated for second homes.

“Obviously in New York, it’s hard to buy a home for that kind of money,” Lyons said.

The wealthy would benefit from the repeal of the alternative minimum tax and the phase-out of the estate tax.

Their timetable calls for passing the plan in the House by Thanksgiving.

Google Pixel 2 & Boiler Room Is Bringing You Artificial Intelligence Like You’ve Never Seen Before

Visit the original post to see all 5 images from this gallery.

Google’s flagship phone, the Pixel 2, went on widespread release last week. With strong reviews all round for its slick design and seamless incorporation of AI tech, the smartphone is one of the leading next gen devices where AI is seamlessly slotted into our everyday processes.

To highlight these features, the tech giant created an AI adventure playground known as the Sci-Fi Super Mall. Exploring some of the AI features of the phone–like the intelligent Google Lens Camera or the Google Assistant–in a huge former brewery space in Berlin, the experience will see people physically interacting with Pixel 2 features.

For the occasion, Google Pixel 2 teamed up with Boiler Room to create an experiment at the intersection of AI and Music.

The pair have created Pixel Records, a fictitious music label, allowing you to become part of an algorithmically made piece of music. The AI mixes your sound snippets and fuses them with the track. The end result is sent back to you and can become a part of the music orchestra piece (available later on).

That’s what Google Pixel 2 is all about – giving you not just thoughtfully designed hardware and software but also state-of-the-art AI to go beyond the average smartphone experience.

A full video recap and review is on the way, but in the mean time check out the experience and get involved with Pixel Records here.

Is It Possible to Trick iPhone X Face Recognition?

One of the most buzzed about features of the new iPhone X is the facial recognition which allows owners the ability to unlock their devices by simply looking at them – boasting a one in a million chance that someone else could bypass the security.

But just how precise is the facial recognition? Both Mashable and The Wall Street Journal attempted to see if they could hack the system by employing unique “bugs” like identical twins, fraternal twins, photos and even silicon mask replicas which look straight out of Hannibal Lecter’s closet.

From the amusing tests, we discover that identical twins are in fact interchangeable when it comes to iPhone X facial recognition, but other methods are not as successful.

For more iPhone X news, check out our review above and information on how to pre-order.
