MANILA, Philippines, June 26, 2014. Driven by it’s commitment to provide the best tools to help transform Filipino Business, Microsoft Philippines has Partnered with Directories Philippines Corporation ( DPC ), which markets Yellow Pages ( YP ) online and offline products and services in the Philippines, to launch a program that will provide a small and medium enterprise ( SMEs ) with faster, easier, and more cost-effient access to Office 365.

The Partnership, which is also in line with DPC’s goal of implementing a digital business model that complements its print YP business, will provide Microsoft with opportunity to reach out to more SME’s in the countries.

“ The Market has change dramatically, projects that once took 18 months are now completed in 3 months or even less. This is most apparent with Cloud Technologies where pilots are easily provisioned in minutes. The demand of cloud-based solutions like Office 365 is steadily rising but we quickly realized the need to undergo a transformation in our existing channels if we are to cope with this level of demand. For Cloud providers like Microsoft to reach out to 800,000 SME’s in the country, new distribution strategies are needed, “ explained ; Karrie Ilagan, Microsoft Philippines General Manager.

Microsoft intent to accelerate transaction and expand its reach by building partnerships with non-traditional channel such as business associations ( e.g Chambers of Commerce ) and market-centric service providers ( such as DPC ) to name a few. Such a shift would see Microsoft broadening its scope beyond the typical technology-focused channels, and more toward business-focused channels to help them promote and sell technology to variety of market segments that may benefits from these new Cloud Technologies.

To implement this strategy, Microsoft has partnered with DPC ( a company already viewed as an aggregator of all things SME ) to help accelerate the promotion of Office 365 and other relevant cloud-based Microsoft Technologies to Small and Medium Enterprises across the country.

Brief History about LED or Light Emitting Diode; 

For over 30 years, LEDs have been used in various areas of application, whether for industrial systems, hi-fi equipment, car lights or advertising. LED technical development continues to stride ahead. In the course of recent years, the white LEDs’ luminous efficacy has increased to a startling 130 lumens per watt and more. This is a trend that will continue into the future. In addition, the physical effect of electroluminescence was discovered more than 100 years ago.

1. HOW THEY WORK

LEDs create light by electroluminescence in a semiconductor material. Electroluminescence is the phenomenon of a material emitting light when electric current or an electric field is passed through it – this happens when electrons are sent through the material and fill electron holes. An electron hole exists where an atom lacks electrons (negatively charged) and therefore has a positive charge. Semiconductor materials like germanium or silicon can be “doped” to create and control the number of electron holes. Doping is the adding of other elements to the semiconductor material to change its properties. By doping a semiconductor you can make two separate types of semiconductors in the same crystal. The boundary between the two types is called a p-n junction. The junction only allows current to pass through it one way, this is why they are used as diodes. LEDs are made using p-n junctions. As electrons pass through one crystal to the other they fill electron holes. They emit photons (light). This is also how the semiconductor laser works.

ASUS Enables Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition Processor Overclocking on 97, H87, B85 and H81 Series Motherboards

Latest H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series boards offer the powerful ability to overclock Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition processor and Core K Series processors

Manila, Philippines (June 17, 2014) ASUS today announced that its H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards are able to overclock the latest Intel® Pentium® Anniversary Edition processor (G3258), 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell’) and new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell Refresh’) processors. The combination of the Pentium Anniversary Edition processor and non-Z chipsets represents the best choice for mainstream overclocking, delving both great value and superb performance.

The overclocking of the Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition processor, 4th-generation and new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series processors have traditionally been limited to Intel Z chipsets. With ASUS H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards, performance enthusiasts are now able to exploit the overclocking power of those processors via the award-winning ASUS UEFI BIOS.

When a compatible Pentium Anniversary Edition processor, 4th-generation or new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series processor is inserted into an ASUS H97, H87, B85 or H81 Series motherboard, the CPU’s overclocking potential will be detected automatically and the related tuning items to adjust the CPU ratio will appear in the UEFI BIOS.

Notes:

1. Users should refer to the relevant ASUS motherboard support page for correct BIOS version.

2. The 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell’ and ‘Haswell Refresh’) processors include Core i7 4770K, Core i5 4670K, Core i7-4790K and i5-4690K. ASUS does not guarantee that later-announced Intel CPUs with overclocking features (‘Haswell Refresh K’ Series) will be overclockable on ASUS H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards.

3. ASUS H97 Series motherboards are able to overclock only the ‘CPU ratio’ of the new Pentium processor, 4th-generation and new 4th-generation Intel Core K Series (‘Haswell and Haswell Refresh’) processors.

4. ASUS does not guarantee that Intel new Pentium processor and Core K Series (‘Haswell’ and ‘Haswell Refresh’) processors will be overclockable on ASUS H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards in the event that Intel issues software and firmware updates that result in function changes.

5. Overclocking may affect a system’s stability, or even cause damage to the components and devices. Overclocking is always conducted as the user’s own risk and expense. ASUS is not responsible for any damage caused as a result of overclocking.

AVAILABILITY & PRICING

ASUS H97, H87, B85 and H81 Series motherboards are already available in the Philippines.

Manila, June 4, 2014 – Yahoo Philippines today announced the launch of the Yahoo Celebrity Awards 2014 and unveiled the nominees for this year. Yahoo Celebrity Awards (formerly OMG!

This is the fourth consecutive year of Yahoo Celebrity Awards, which are not only the most popular awards program in the country but also uniquely “Powered by You”  – as fans have the exclusive power to vote their favorite stars in.

This year, the Yahoo Celebrity Awards includes 140 nominees across 28 categories – with ten new categories added especially given the emerging trends in the entertainment industry. The event gives users a chance to vote for their favorite stars on Yahoo Celebrity and see them up-close and personal during a star-studded, glamorous evening.

What makes the Yahoo Celebrity Awards even more special this year is the new ‘Yahoo-On-the-Road’ bus, which will be touring schools showcasing nominees of the Band of the Year and Emerging Band categories. The bus is fully geared for fans to engage with the bands, cast their votes and request performances.

Mike Constantino, Country Sales Director added, “The immense popularity of the Yahoo Celebrity Awards makes it an effective platform with a wide reach, for advertisers to engage their audience both online and on-ground. We are happy to partner with the leading brands in their categories to deliver some of the most sought after entertainment content generated through the Celebrity Awards to Yahoo users in Philippines.”

Commenting on the name change of the Awards, Nitin Mathur, Senior Director, Marketing, APAC, said,  “After three successful editions the Yahoo OMG! Awards have been renamed as Yahoo Celebrity Awards this year.  These awards are an extension of the Yahoo Celebrity site and what it stands for – rich, exciting content for entertainment enthusiasts. We believe the new name better reflects what the Awards stand for, and we are confident that fans in Philippines will show their overwhelming support for the awards this year around too.”
