Samsung to Collaborate with Microsoft on Green IT Technology

Seoul, Korea — November 2, 2009: Following a meeting in Seoul today between the Vice Chairman and CEO of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd, Yoon-Woo Lee, and the CEO of Microsoft, Steve Ballmer, Samsung Electronics announced that it will collaborate with Microsoft on efficient energy usage in computers.

The two companies are aimed at encouraging PC users to purchase more environmentally friendly PC systems. Samsung expects substantial energy savings when Microsoft’s flagship Windows 7 operating system and Samsung’s 40 nanometer (nm) class DDR3 DRAM are used together.

Samsung, a strong supporter of Windows 7, will be migrating all of its corporate PCs worldwide to the new operating system beginning in 2010.

The Green IT collaboration effort between the world’s number one memory company and the world’s number one software company is expected to contribute to the revival of IT markets that have been depressed from the economic downturn. (read more below) 

At the beginning of September, Samsung initiated its own global marketing campaign centered around “Less Energy, More Speed”, initially focused on its energy-efficient, 40nm-class, 2Gb DDR3 DRAM.

Also, Microsoft has announced significant reductions in power consumption with the new power management function in its recently released Windows 7 operating system.

“Windows 7 was designed as a more environmentally-sound and energy-efficient OS, particularly evident in its managing of memory and when shifting into lower power mode,” said Kim James Woo, Country Manager of Microsoft Korea. He added that “users will enjoy the benefits when Windows 7 and DDR3 are combined.”

Executives of Samsung Electronics and Microsoft applaud during a meeting at the Shilla Hotel in Seoul, Monday.
“There is no doubt that the combination of Windows 7 and 40nm DDR3 in new PCs will make users very happy,” said Dong-Soo Jun, executive senior vice president of memory marketing at Samsung Electronics. He added, “If you opt for 4GB of memory in a Windows 7-based system, over typical 2GB-based systems used today, you’ll see an increase in performance, while using less power, thanks to the efficiency of Samsung’s 40nm DD3 DRAM.”

In the ensuing months, while measuring the effects of this and other collaborative Green IT efforts, Samsung will continue to examine the potential for other areas of global cooperation with Microsoft in IT technology development.


ABOUT GREEN DDR3
Samsung’s 40nm class DDR3 is one of the most environmentally friendly mass-produced memory for PCs and servers worldwide. Providing up to 60 percent power savings over 60nm-class DDR2 in PCs, Samsung’s Green DDR3 is available in densities from 1GB to 4GB and is designed to work efficiently with all leading operating systems, particularly Windows 7. Find out more about Samsung’s Green DDR3 at www.samsung.com/ddr3

Hellsing OVA premieres 1 November 2009, airing Sundays 11pm.Hellsing_OVA-keyart (Large)Vampires are real. And it is the responsibility of Hellsing – an organization hidden from the public eye and funded by the British government – to cover up the frightening reality as well as to protect the blissfully ignorant people from the blood-sucking monsters.

Not only is Hellsing armed with a military force of its own, it possesses secret weapons of which the most powerful is ironically, a vampire. Named Alucard (‘Dracula’ spelt backwards), it is no ordinary blood-sucker, but reigns as the oldest and most powerful vampire in existence, only under the control of Hellsing, led by its young and stern heiress Integra Hellsing.(read more below)  
Hellsing OVA 10 (Large)
Sadistic, arrogant and extremely powerful, Alucard delights in exterminating its own kind just to prove his superiority. It works with Victoria Seras, a policewoman-turned-fledgling vampire struggling to come to terms with her new identity, along with the enigmatic and lethal butler Walter Donez.

Hellsing OVA 8 (Large)

Hellsing OVA 11 (Large)

With vampire activity on the rise, the Hellsing organization swings into action only to find the cause is far more frightening than ever imagined. Masterminding the assault is the Millenium, a secret group of Nazi origins thought dead half a century ago, but brought back as blood-sucking undead monsters to plunge England, Europe and the world into destruction....

Enjoying good food, music and a party after a long work in your office or school will make you relax and also make up for a time to enjoy with family and friends, this experience can be felt at Red Box. I invited my blogger friends to join with me to sing, dance and eat some great meals while we sing the videoke in one big comfy room.

It's a funny set that we started to sing some new songs and then shifted to the old ones.We ordered right away our food so that we can eat after some songs and drink non-alcoholic beverages that night. Ed, Jori, Carl, Jonel, Cathie and Lace were rocking the house that night and we enjoyed owning the entire room and night. We started at around 7:30pm and ended our session at 1am. There's a 500 fee for every head that will use the room, so its up to sawa of the videoke room starting at 7pm that we checked in. (read more below)

Bum launches Identi-Tees Collection

bum_holiday531 (Large)Bum has always been associated with freedom and style, distinct character, and a candid voice that speaks of unhampered individuality, but BUM ceases to be just any other apparel. Quite simply, it has become a personal expression about anything and everything that defines a person. This individuality defined by every Bum apparel transcends into a whole new collection that captures the essence of the wearer and the wearable: the Bum Identi-Tee. (read more below)
The brand label that has captured the imagination and fancy of the younger market unveils a whole new collection this quarter. Dubbed Bum’s Identi-Tee, it showcases key pieces in bold, grunge-inspired designs, matched with cuts that are distinctly Bum’s. Taking its cue from the dark enigma of goth, Bum recreates what teen fashion is all about.
Bum’s Identi-tee is anything but ordinary. Going out of the box, this whole new collection seeks to create a niche in teen’s fashion. Bum calls it “voodoo of the mind” --- the uninhibited way of expressing one’s thoughts, sans the rules. What one wears, is what he or she is. And how a person carries it is unbounded by any tenet.
Definitely, there is only fashion rule for Bum’s Identi-Tee: character is the best accessory. And this season, Bum unveils its voodoo of the mind in every rackful of apparel. As token of that individuality, a special voodoo doll is given to anyone who buys Bum’s Identi-Tee.
Bum Identi-Tee is available at all major department stores nationwide.
