Va. to Allow Troops Overseas to Vote in Midterms by Mobile Phones
So far the technology has been limited to trial runs and private elections, such as balloting for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Sawhney sees the state as a springboard to broader use of the voting app, tech experts are not much in favor of mobile voting.

Today, Sony announced that they've sold over 525 million PlayStation consoles worldwide - an impressive feat, for sure. The limited console is a translucent blue color with sleek copper accents that brings to mind the streak of translucent consoles, controllers, and handhelds that graced the '90s and early '00s. That's more than you get with most of the console bundles that Sony sells, though unfortunately, there isn't a game packed in. (The PlayStation logo also appear in copper on the system.) On the plate is your console's specific limited edition serial number on it, so you know which of the 50,000 units it is. To celebrate the milestone, the company is launching a Limited Edition 500 Million version of the PS4 Pro. It's the first PS4 Pro to come with a 2TB hard drive, and Sony is also offering a matching gold wireless headset as an extra for $100.

"Extra Special" serial numbers like 09995, which is the USA launch date of the original PS, will be available. In this age of massive digital games, having 2TB of storage at your disposal is a handsome thing - it's just a shame we don't see this storage option more often. Another serial number to keep an eye out for is 01013, which is the U.S. launch date of PSVR. Not only that it is also accompanied by DualShock 4 wireless controller and mono headset; both with matching translucent body. But hey, if anyone's willing to toss me $500, I'll be happy to pick up one and show it off for you. It will be available on August 24.
