Google begins shipping wireless Pixel Buds

Some Pixel 2 XL touchscreens are unresponsive near the edges, but a fix is coming Some Google Pixel 2 XL smartphones cannot register taps along the edges of the display

As the search engine giant's massive flagship handset has only been in the market for a few weeks, users have reported yet another issue concerning the responsiveness of the screen edges.

Google has now revealed details on how its Pixel 2 and 2 XL smartphones record videos, the company uses a combination of electronic image stabilization (EIS) and optical image stabilization (OIS) to record video. Some Pixel 2 XL users have also found unresponsive edges on the displays of their handsets. Several users have complained on Google's official forum and some have even documented it in a video.

The bad news is that if you didn't drop $159 back in early October, sight-unseen, and now you're regretting that decision, it'll be over a month until new Pixel Bud orders start shipping, according to Google's retail site. The touchscreen over the display somehow fails to register taps, but will register swipes. If the problem does lie with the hardware itself, then it would a much bigger headache for both Google and the consumers.

Bucs snap 5-game losing streak, top Jets 15-10
Overall, the Jets defense didn't get off the field quick enough; they gave up two scoring drives lasting 7:56 and 7:25. Ryan Fitzpatrick returned to NY for the first time since week 17 last season, as he was the quarterback for the Jets .

The issue (which Artem shares, obviously) appears to be over-aggressive accidental touch protection logic, so an OTA fix makes sense.

Orrin, a Pixel 2XL Community manager, posted on the Forums, that the Pixel team is already investigating and addressing the problem in an upcoming over-the-air update.
