Sony's much loved XM4 headphones are gearing up for Black Friday

We're now within firing range of the Black Friday Sony WH-1000XM4 deals and you might not even have to wait until the day itself to save yourself a lot of money on these excellent noise-canceling headphones. We've already seen some retailers jump the gun with some big discounts on that high MSRP recently.

Priced at $350/£350 before reductions, they're certainly a premium piece of kit. But given the exceptional audio quality and improved noise-canceling, they really are a pair of headphones you'll adore for years. We use them for commuting, working, and casual use in-between. They're that comfortable, and the 30-hour battery life won't have you irritably reaching for a recharge in the middle of a workday. Even the best wireless earbuds continue to disappoint with their batteries compared to the best wireless headphones. That, and a fully-realized soundscape with zero compromises. So yes, we like them a lot, as you can see with our detailed Sony WH-1000XM4 review.

At the time of writing, prices in the US seem to have gone back up to full price at most stores. We've regularly seen them knocked down to $278 regularly over the last 12 months, though. Plus, just a few weeks ago, Amazon had a frankly bonkers $248 Sony WH-1000XM4 deal. That all-time low might not be back for Black Friday, especially as demand will see these babies sell loads ahead of Christmas, but we certainly think you should avoid paying anything more than $278, given that price is never far away.

Most retailers offer the XM4 headphones in black, silver (more like off-white, to be honest), and a lovely new blue color. Check out today's best prices automatically pulled in from the best retailers below — and hold out for a discount if you don't see one yet!

When are the Black Friday Sony WH-1000XM4 deals?

Black Friday 2021 officially takes place on Friday, November 26 this year. But if you've got your heart set on a pair of Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones (and why wouldn't you?), then we'd be keeping your eye out much sooner. We're not talking about while you're dozing off laden with turkey on Thanksgiving, but throughout November and from Monday, Nov. 22 on, especially since most retailers have a 'Black Friday week' nowadays.

If you see the $278 price tag come along, that's a great Sony WH-1000XM4 deal, albeit one we regularly see throughout the year. $248 was spotted not long ago, so that's you're all-time low benchmark if you insist on never paying more than the cheapest ever price — as deal lovers, we totally get that. MSRP is for normies.

Where will the best Black Friday Sony WH-1000XM4 deals be?

It would seem that Sony unleashes similar discounts at multiple retailers whenever the Sony WH-1000XM4 deals go live. If you just miss it at one store, chances are you'll be able to get it at one of the others below. Look out for any bundled extras, though, such as portable chargers. You get a nice carry case for the headphones as standard anyway, so don't be swayed by bundles with an extra one.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1

These Android games support Bluetooth controllers and they're better for it

Gaming is simply better with a controller in your hands. Gaming on Android typically requires you to settle for using touchscreen controls.

Since so few games provide this feature, we've taken the time to test and compiled our list of the best games that let you play with the best Bluetooth controller in your hands. We'd also recommend getting a Style Ring or PopSocket which can help prop your phone up at a good angle for gaming. You might recognize some of these games from the best Android games roundup and for good reason. But you're here for the best games with controller support, after all, so here I present to you the best you can find on the Play Store.
