Everything we know about the iPhone X coming today

    A fake dummy unit out of China depicts what the iPhone X may look like based on reports. Apple will launch at least three new iPhones today, September 12, at its new campus in Cupertino, California. There has been much speculation about these upcoming iPhones. All signs point to Apple announcing the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus alongside a completely redesigned and more expensive iPhone X. The pressure is on Apple, too. It's the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone, launched in 2007, and the company is expected to unveil some big updates to mark the occasion. Wall Street analysts hope that the new iPhone X, which could cost over $1,000, will drive a "supercycle" of sales and propel Apple to become the first trillion-dollar publicly traded company. Apple rarely comments on upcoming ...

The pound jumped on the news of inflation’s rise since Brexit

    Inflation in August jumped to its joint-highest level since the vote to leave the European Union last year, as Brexit continues to push up the cost of living in the UK. The UK's Consumer Prices Index (CPI) inflation rate — the key measure of inflation was 2.9% in August, up from 2.6% in the previous month, according to the Office for National Statistics.

    Shoppers are being urged to check their new £10 notes for serial numbers that could earn them thousands of pounds.

Current Govt MPs have warned Theresa May over second Brexit bill

    Senior Tories MPs warn May over Brexit bill after MPs vote for second reading. Conservative MPs have warned Theresa May that their support for her government’s Brexit legislation is not unconditional, as they demanded significant changes to the EU withdrawal bill within minutes of backing it. Parliament’s post-midnight vote resulted in the prime minister facing no rebellion from within her party, as the government secured a victory of 326 to 290. The result handed May an effective Brexit majority of 36 after seven Labour MPs Ronnie Campbell, Frank Field, Kate Hoey, Kelvin Hopkins, John Mann, Dennis Skinner and Graham Stringer – defied their own party whip to support the government, arguing that the referendum demanded the legislation be passed. Pro-European Union and anti...

Aircraft sent by Authorities to search and rescue operations in Florida

    Authorities sent an aircraft carrier and other Navy ships to help with search and rescue operations in Florida on Monday as a flyover of the hurricane battered Keys yielded what the governor said were scenes of devastation. I just hope everyone survived, Gov. Rick Scott said. He said boats were cast ashore, water, sewers and electricity were knocked out, and I don't think I saw one trailer park where almost everything wasn't overturned. Authorities also struggled to clear the single highway connecting the string of islands to the mainland. The Keys felt Irma's full fury when the storm blew ashore as a Category 4 hurricane Sunday morning with 130 mph (209 kph) winds. How many people in the dangerously exposed, low-lying islands defied evacuation orders and stayed behind was...
