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

Now's the time folks, we're seeing the Black Friday Sony WH-1000XM4 deals go live around the world at loads of stores. The US seems to be getting some absolutely massive discounts as a range of retailers have just knocked $100 off the MSRP of $350. $249 for arguably the best noise-cancelling headphones on the planet is an insanely good deal, we wouldn't hold out for anything better anytime soon.

Priced at $350/£350 before reductions, they're certainly a premium piece of kit and we did see a lot of retailers recently put them back up to full price, but given the newly-reduced prices are cheaper than the old deals in most places, we're totally fine with that. 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.

How to get the Microsoft experience on a Chromebook

Microsoft's dedication to Android translates to a great Chrome OS experience, too. Once upon a time, to get the best experience for Microsoft services, you needed to buy a Windows laptop . If you were on a budget laptop with lower specs, though, performance was slow, all tasks were tedious, and your productivity suffered. These days, though, the best Chromebooks offer excellent performance and less maintenance at lower price points. Thanks to the way Microsoft has worked to improve Microsoft apps and services across all platforms — from Macs to Android tablets to phones — you can still get most of the Microsoft goodies on a Chromebook. In fact, if you're on a tight computer budget, a Chromebook could be the best machine for Microsoft users — something even Microsoft acknowledges as it preps Windows 10X to better compete with Chrome OS. From productivity to playing games, here's how to get the best Microsoft experience on a Chromebook. Best of Microsoft on Chromeb

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Google says attackers worked with ISPs to deploy Hermit spyware on Android and iOS

Illustration by Alex Castro / The Verge A sophisticated spyware campaign is getting the help of internet service providers (ISPs) to trick users into downloading malicious apps, according to research published by Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) (via TechCrunch ). This corroborates earlier findings from security research group Lookout , which has linked the spyware, dubbed Hermit, to Italian spyware vendor RCS Labs. Lookout says RCS Labs is in the same line of work as NSO Group — the infamous surveillance-for-hire company behind the Pegasus spyware — and peddles commercial spyware to various government agencies. Researchers at Lookout believe Hermit has already been deployed by the government of Kazakhstan and Italian authorities. In line with these findings, Google has identified victims in both countries and says it will notify affected users. As described in Lookout’s report, Hermit is a modular threat that can download additional capabilities from a command and control (

Duke Nukem is getting a movie from some guys who could actually pull it off

The one true Duke. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have no idea who Duke Nukem even is — that’s how hard the classic video game franchise cratered a decade ago. Today, the character is mostly known as a punchline for video game vaporware jokes, about how Duke Nukem Forever spent 14 years in development hell only to become a huge flop. And yet for years now, Duke’s corporate owners have been whispering that a movie is coming, culminating in The Hollywood Reporter ’s story today : Legendary Entertainment has tapped Cobra Kai creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg to actually produce a feature film. I don’t quite know how to react! As a gamer who actually quite liked Duke Nukem , Duke Nukem II and Duke Nukem 3D, I absolutely agree that this movie should never be made because Duke Nukem has no depth and no story and was always designed to be a caricature .
