Sony is cutting the base price of its PlayStation 4 from $399.99 to $349.99 including a game. The drop has been heavily rumored following a similar cut in Japan last month. The new prices come into force tomorrow with the release of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, as you'll be able to pick up a PS4 bundled with the game. Following that, the next scheduled $349.99 bundle drops in mid-November with Star Wars Battlefront. The cut also applies in Canada with prices starting from CAD429.99, as the chart below illustrates.

Dell Takes XPS 15 Laptop Display to the Edge

Dell impressed us earlier in the year when it released the XPS 13, a well-designed laptop that fit a 13-inch display into the same body size as an 11- or 12-inch laptop. To do that, it used a quad HD+ (3,200x1,800 pixels) "virtually borderless" InfinityEdge display. And now, it's giving the same treatment to the XPS 15, making it -- at least for the moment -- the world's smallest 15-inch laptop.

Daimler's dreams of self-driving big rig trucks just took one step closer to reality. The automaker has conducted the first-ever test of its semi-autonomous Highway Pilot system in a production truck on a public road, driving an augmented Mercedes-Benz Actros down Germany's Autobahn 8. While the vehicle needed a crew to keep watch, it could steer itself down the highway using a combination of radar, a stereo camera array and off-the-shelf systems like adaptive cruise control. The dry run shows that the technology can work on just about any vehicle in the real world, not just one-off concepts.

Getting a bunch of people to ride along in a single bus rather than a bunch of individual cars is an important element of more sustainable, environmentally-friendly transportation. Getting those buses to operate on electricity takes the whole thing a step further, as electric buses could be recharged using electricity from solar panels and wind. Range is a big issue, though, making the Proterra Catalyst XR an important creation.
