Microsoft introduces Windows 10 S

Windows 10 S is a new Windows experience streamlined for security and superior performance. With Windows 10 S, applications that teachers and students download come from the Windows Store where they are first verified for security, and then locally they each run in a safe “container” to ensure that Windows 10 S offers the power of full-featured applications, with experiences like the full version of Office 365, including all of the capabilities of Microsoft Word, Excel, OneNote and PowerPoint, among others. With Windows 10 S, educators and students will have access to their favorite and most-used applications across STEM, learning tools, secure assessment tools, content publishers, interactive whiteboards and more.

Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 S also makes it easier than ever for students to organize research and manage school projects with the new Tab Preview Bar. With the support for Windows Ink in Microsoft Edge, students can make notes directly on a web page and share them with a classmate. Microsoft Edge is compatible with the sites educators and students frequently use.

Microsoft’s goal with Windows 10 S is to develop its open, vibrant partner-centric ecosystem. Device partners including Acer, ASUS, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Samsung and Toshiba offer a range of new Windows 10 PCs for education today, starting at $189 USD. In the coming months, these partners will also offer a range of Windows 10 S devices, from powerful and affordable Windows Ink and touch PCs to beautiful premium devices.

Together with OneNote Class Notebooks and new assignment and quiz experiences, teachers can easily distribute content, grade work and personalize learning, and communicate with students, parents and staff.

Teams also enables teachers to bring in rich and engaging content from the web, guest speakers and solutions from education partners like busuu, Canvas, Flipgrid and Kahoot!. Most importantly, Teams helps students develop the communication and collaboration skills they’ll need to be successful in the future.

Samsung reportedly plans refurbished Galaxy Note7 with smaller battery

Evan Blass, writing for Venture Beat;

In a surprising report out of South Korea today (via XDA), Han Kyung claims that Samsung has plans to re-release recalled units of the ill-fated Galaxy Note7 as refurbished handsets, complete with lower-capacity batteries. After utilizing a reported 200,000 returned phones for testing, Samsung apparently still has over 2.5 million left in inventory.

Instead of the stock 3500mAh battery, which was determined to be the primary cause of the malfunctioning devices, Samsung will reportedly equip the handsets with packs in the 3000mAh to 3200mAh range.

The keyword here is Emerging Markets, here’s hoping that the refurbished Note 7 will not have the same problem.

A Nokia 3310 homage is coming to MWC

Daniel Morial, reporting for Yugatech;

The Nokia 3310 will resurface in all its glory. It’ll not be the most powerful phone (it’s not even a smartphone) around but it’s an exciting handset to use again. We can expect a modern version of the feature to be unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress.

Nokia 3310 was my very first phone and it has served me well for almost 5 years until I lost it while riding a tricycle.

If HDM’s modern version of 3310 is half as durable and as good as its battery life, then I don’t see any reason why the new 3310 not to be a hit, unless of course they’re just banking on the name and nothing else.

Sony confirms new PS4 Pro ‘Boost Mode’ will help some older games run faster and smoother

Chris Welch, reporting for The Verge;

Sony is rolling out the beta preview of the PlayStation 4’s latest firmware update, version 4.50, and it includes a pretty great new feature for early owners of the PS4 Pro console. In short, many older PS4 titles will run better on the new hardware — even if they’ve not been optimized to do so by developers. Once you’ve installed the software upgrade, you’ll find a new “Boost Mode” option in the settings menu. This is exclusive to the more powerful Pro console and won’t appear on the regular PS4.
