Cheddar business update 9/11: "It" Breaks box office records with monster weekend

Posted: Updated:
  • Tesla is giving a boost to its customers in Florida fleeing Irma. The carmaker issued an over-the-air update to its cars in the state giving them an extra 30 to 40 miles above the typical range of the vehicle. This way drivers could go the distance and flee the state ahead of the storm... according to Electrek.
  • Apple reportedly will show off a mysteriously-titled “iPhone X” at its big product launch tomorrow. The device will come with better lighting for its camera and “Animoji,” which are animated versions of popular emoji. A Face ID feature replaces Touch ID, meaning users will unlock the phone using facial recognition.
  • Stephen King’s thriller “It” broke records at the box office, bringing in $179.2 million in its opening weekend. That’s the most ever for a film debuting in September, and also the largest ever for a horror movie.
