Windows 10: Could Progressive Web Apps finally fix Microsoft Store's software shortfall?

“Downloadable” Websites Or PWAs For Windows 10 Are Coming To Microsoft Store

Today's build also enables those on Windows 10 S to use Microsoft's Authenticator App to set up their PCs so they don't have to use passwords. Keep in mind that Microsoft is yet to officially announce the dates for Build 2018, and although WalkingCat's leaks are nearly never inaccurate, you are probably better off waiting for the official announcement before making any bookings.

Build 17093, which Microsoft released to Fast Ring PC testers on February 7, includes this new button, as well as a few other tweaks and lots of fixes.

Food compound 'may be linked to breast cancer spread'
The study, reported in the journal Nature , was carried out on mice which had a highly developed breast cancer. It's possible that in future, this drug could be re-purposed to help treat breast cancer patients.

The Windows team touts another round of improvements to the Game Bar. Windows 10 doesn't make any performance benchmarking to organize your GPUs - it simply makes assumptions based on type: integrated GPU is suitable for power saving, discrete GPU is more performant, and an external GPU is even higher performing. By default, it uses full display brightness, so you'll want to change that if you're not plugged in.

To get HDR video working on such a device Microsoft has included an experimental / early stage calibration tool which it hopes to include in Redstone 4. The settings picked in the new "Advanced graphics settings" page will override any picks made in the AMD or Nvidia control panels, though the application or game in question makes the ultimate choice of GPU.

Maryland child has died from the flu, state health officials confirm
Missouri Health Department officials say 9,566 new cases of flu have been reported across the state as of Saturday, January 27. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said hospitalizations related to the flu could exceed 700,000.

Aimed at students, Windows 10 S is a streamlined version of the operating system that is restricted to running apps from the Microsoft Store. Our best guess is that the password-less mode will be available when the rumored "S Mode" is activated.

Microsoft released its latest Insider Preview update on Wednesday.

Drowsy Driving Crashes Higher Than Federal Estimates
An executive from AAA suggests that missing just two to three hours of sleep can more than quadruple your risk for a crash. A new report from AAA says that crashes caused by drowsy drivers are higher than federal estimates.

Microsoft recommends that devs who want to differentiate their product on each platform develop native apps, rather than PWAs, but also stresses the cost and time savings of building a single PWA to run across all platforms. As ever, some known bugs remain, including a pause of up to 90 minutes at the 88% mark during the installation process. Once we get closer to the date we'll start having more details on the conference, so stay tuned.
