The House has passed a short-term spending bill that keeps the government
running for six weeks and buys time for future budget negotiations. The 352-66 vote sends
the measure to President Barack Obama
in time to avert a government shutdown at midnight.
The legislation gives Congress and the White House more time to iron out their differences
on a pile of unfinished budget work totaling more than $1 trillion. It also ends a fight
over whether some aid for victims of Hurricane Irene and other natural disasters should
have been offset by cuts elsewhere.
It's the first time in years that Apple has unveiled a major new product
without Steve Jobs presiding over
the announcement. The company's new CEO, Tim Cook, was the one introducing the company's new iPhone
today -- faster and more powerful than the previous version. Cook took over as CEO after Jobs,
who has been battling health problems, resigned in August.
