Windows 10 Creators Update can block Win32 apps if they’re not from the Store

The latest Windows 10 Insider Preview build doesn't add much in the way of features—it's mostly just bug fixes—but one small new feature has been spotted, and it could be contentious. Vitor Mikaelson noticed that the latest build lets you restrict the installation of applications built using the Win32 API.

The Settings app has three positions: allow apps from anywhere (the default), allow apps from anywhere but prefer apps from the Store, and only allow apps from the Store. Put in its most restrictive third position, this setting will block the installation of traditional Win32 applications; only those shipped through the Store using the Project Centennial technology will work. Interestingly, the switch only appears to govern installation. Changing the setting to "Store apps only" will allow existing Win32 applications to work, only preventing new ones from being installed.

@JezCorden @itsmichaelwest just this finally working

Microsoft is late to offer this option; macOS has had a similar toggle as part of its Gatekeeper system since 2012.

Mobile World Congress, day one: Many smartphones, some PCs, a couple curveballs

CES is still the biggest consumer tech showcase in the early part of the year, but if you're a smartphone company, you increasingly save your big announcements for Mobile World Congress in February. We're on the ground at the show this year, and we've already been busy. For those looking to find a TL;DR version of the biggest happenings, we've rounded up all of the major announcements on day one to help you keep up.

  • The biggest phone announcement so far is probably the LG G6. LG usually plays second fiddle to Samsung, and it's too bad to see the G6 saddled with last year's Snapdragon 821 SoC. Still, the tall screen is a neat design touch.
  • Sony's phones still have their fans, and the XZ Premium offers a better SoC than LG along with an impressive-sounding camera.
  • Decent budget phones abound! The newest Moto G5 phones add better specs and metal backs to Lenovo/Motorola's longrunning line of midrange handsets. Meanwhile, the Nokia 6 looks like a surprisingly competent newcomer, and Nokia is making the right noises about a clean build of Android and speedy updates. We'll need proof first, but we can always dream.
  • Speaking of Nokia, did you know that old-school feature phones still exist?
  • Samsung's flagship Galaxy phones usually skip MWC in favor of doing their own thing, but the company still has a couple Android and Windows tablets for you to look at.
  • The long-irrelevant BlackBerry continues to release phones without really paying attention to industry trends or anything its competitors are doing. The $549 KeyOne attaches a physical keyboard to a decidedly mediocre-looking and overpriced midrange phone.
  • Huawei's P10 flagships look OK, if a little too familiar. The Huawei Watch 2 looks... less good.
  • Google doesn't have much of a formal presence at MWC, but the show basically runs on Android, and Google often puts out a minor announcement or two to coincide with everyone else's announcements. To that end, Google says that its heretofore-Pixel-exclusive Google Assistant software will soon begin rolling out to all Android phones running version 6.0 (Marshmallow) and up.
  • PC companies are the busiest at CES, but they often release a couple things at MWC, where they'll have a bit more room to breathe. The HP Pro x2 tablet is a repairable, business-friendly riff on Microsoft's Surface, and Lenovo's newest Yoga laptops offer a good blend of features and performance.

We'll have more coverage for you as the week rolls on. Follow our landing page here for all the latest updates.

New Lenovo Yoga laptops get 4K displays, Nvidia GTX 1050 GPUs, and more

Ars Technica - 2 hours 14 min ago


The foldable hinge of Lenovo's Yoga laptops has become a mainstay in the convertible laptop market since the original was launched in late 2012. Along with the MacBook Air and the Surface Pro 4, the Yoga has become one of the industry's most commonly copied designs. This week at Mobile World Congress, Lenovo has updated the originals with new features that check a lot of the boxes we're looking for 2017's PCs to check.

The most interesting options of the new Yogas are the new midrange 720-series models, available in both 13.3-inch and 15-inch screen sizes. Both offer many of the same features: they have Windows Hello fingerprint sensors embedded in their palmrests, they come with both 1080p and 4K touchscreens, they both support pen input via an optional Windows Ink-compatible pen accessory, and they both offer a Thunderbolt 3 port that charges the laptop and offers DisplayPort support. The 13-inch model also offers one USB 3.0 port, and the 15-inch model offers two USB 3.0 ports; both have headphone jacks but no SD card readers. Both use Intel Kaby Lake CPUs, both offer up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, both offer PCIe SSDs up to 1TB in size, both have 867Mbps 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1, and both offer backlit keyboards and Windows 10 Home (Pro doesn't appear to be an option). Like Dell's XPS 13, each of these devices also uses slim bezels around the top and sides of the screens that are offset by a larger bottom bezel; unlike the XPS 13, though, both squeeze their 720p webcams in above the screen rather than below it.
