It will go on sale in most markets Sept 15th and retail for $299. Previously known as the PS4 Neo the PS4 Pro is beefier upgrade to the PS4 supporting 4K video and HDR. ““Our goal is to deliver high-fidelity graphical experiences,” lead architect Mark Cerny said on stage during a hardware event today. It’s got a faster CPU, a 1TB hard-drive, and an upgraded GPU. It’ll also play all old PS4 games.||http://kotaku.com/playstation-4-pro-announced-1786337093|
|AT&T has now exempted DirecTV App streaming video and U-Verse App from AT&T’s mobile data caps. When the FCC approved AT&T merger with DirecTV it prohibited AT&T from putting home internet data caps to any of its own content. AT&T argues that the clause does not apply to mobile data. When Ars Technica questioned AT&T about its decision it replied “"We are not treating our services differently from any other data. Other content providers can do the same thing through our sponsored data program." Ars Technica notes that apparently DirecTV is paying AT&T to participate in the sponsored data program. ||http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2016/09/att-owner-of-directv-exempts-directv-from-mobile-data-caps/|
|The Nashville Metro Council voted 32-7 for “One Touch Make Ready” policy giving Google Fiber faster access to utility poles. The One Touch Make Ready ordinance lets single company—like Google Fiber—"make all of the necessary wire adjustments itself without having to wait for incumbent providers" - like AT&T who’s been opposed to the measure - to send construction crews. However the Nashville Electric Service, who owns most of the poles in the area, must still review the applications and inspect the lines before work can begin. ||http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2016/09/google-fiber-beats-att-in-nashville-wins-vote-for-quicker-expansion/|

|Sam in oregon wanted to share his throughts on old vs new techology. He writes:|
I enjoyed the conversation about old vs new technology. A couple points:
1. New for the sake of new is pointless unless you need the functionality. A command line system in the hands of a capable operator can be very fast and run on an "old" underpowered system. Most of the new systems have increased graphics capabilities but as far as helping your airline being on time, I'm trying to understand what a fancy GUI would do for that.
2. Customer service is still the best thing to do for a business, if a new tool helps you serve the customer better then by all means it's a good investment. Unfortunately in the tech world we are obsessed by the shiny new object. But if it does not lead to a better customer experience then it is probably not worth the investment.
