Why 5G is the Game-Changing Tech You’ve Been Waiting For


Of all the big up-and-coming technologies to hit the consumer market, 5G wireless networks are arguably poised to make the most impact. Current 4G connectivity is perfectly serviceable for modern internet-based needs, but the ever-innovating tech sphere inevitably ushers every smart device-wielding individual towards faster, near-instantaneous access to online utilities.

Huawei is at the forefront of this 5G revolution, being an end-to-end provider of consumer-ready 5G solutions from network infrastructure right down to devices like 5G-capable smartphones. While it’s easy to oversimplify the benefits of 5G to being “just faster than 4G”, there are many significant aspects that incentivize and justify the integration of 5G networks in modern telecommunications well into its future.



As such, Huawei has initiated this transition with its 5G-capable smartphone line, all of which will be available in the Philippine market. The Huawei Nova 7SE, P40 Series 5G and Mate 30 Pro 5G all come with next-generation connectivity out of the box, giving Filipino consumers a massive advantage in the age of 5G networks.

Below are a few examples of what simply owning a 5G-enabled smartphone can mean for the end user.

Speed and low latency in media consumption

Being 10X faster than 4G, 5G connectivity is almost exponentially superior in terms of download/upload speed, which offers tremendous potential just for media consumption alone. The ability to download full HD content (movies, TV show episodes, etc.) in a matter of seconds is a game-changer, while the extremely low latency further enhances high-definition livestreaming experiences even across incredibly long distances. Not to mention the joy of HD video calls without the frustrating lag, making conversations all the more lively and enjoyable.

VR/AR/3D mixed reality

Higher bandwidth speed and lower latency works wonders for virtual/augmented/mixed reality applications. With high-end smartphones serving as compact VR platforms, 5G capability is a massive boost in that aspect.

Integrating 5G with further development of VR software and hardware results in more immersive experiences as the platforms (VR headsets, goggles, and other peripherals) can render increasingly realistic elements for their respective mediums. Gaming is the obvious beneficiary, but other promising 5G-powered VR/AR applications include real-time troubleshooting in heavy industries or medicine, for example, where a more interactive approach makes a world of difference.

Cloud computing and smarter homes

Cloud gaming can also fulfill its promise of evolving the landscape by not requiring storage space; the sheer speed offered by 5G acts as the platform to run even the most graphics-intensive titles with negligible lag or latency.

The Internet of Things (IoT), paired with 5G connectivity can finally realize home automation’s full potential by seamlessly synchronizing all smart appliances - with the 5G-capable smartphone as the control hub. Again, the incredible speed on tap means viewing 8K TV, receiving recipe suggestions based on fridge content, controlling temperature, and monitoring home security (among numerous others) all at the same time is an effortless affair.

Adoption of 5G means so much more than a speed upgrade - the sheer overlap between the technological benefits and applications to consumers’ lives fulfills Huawei’s vision of an all-scenario, intelligent world anchored by an exceptional smartphone experience. 

A cup of postivi-TEA to brighten up your day


Having a cup of coffee is everyone’s usual go-to drink to start the day and having several more cups to stay awake especially at home where everyone needs that extra push to get work done. But for non-coffee drinkers, whether it's to avoid too much caffeine or they’re not into the bitter taste, tea is a good alternative so we’ve rounded up some tea favorites from TWG Tea and Marks & Spencer to help you pick the perfect variant.


BREAKFAST
We all need a sip of something to wake us up in the morning, right? Marks & Spencer recommends their organic Pure Green Tea, which is just as effective as coffee in giving you that early boost but has a crisp, light and fragrant aroma. 

TWG Tea’s classic English Breakfast Tea is also perfect for early mornings. It was originally blended as an accompaniment to the traditional English breakfast. Very strong and full-bodied with light floral undertones, this TWG Tea broken-leaf black tea is perfect with morning toast and marmalade to start your day.

AFTER MEALS
Lunch is usually the heaviest meal of the day for some and tea is a drink that can help you with your digestion. Elegant and highly refined, the Geisha Blossom Tea is a TWG Tea blend of green tea with refreshing, ripe southern fruits that infuses into a fragrant cup that will calm and appease after a day's disruptions.

Marks & Spencer’s Pure Peppermint Infusion is the perfect after meal time. With pure dried peppermint leaves, it gives a light, clean, and refreshing flavor.

AFTERNOON TEA
Taking breaks in the afternoon can help alleviate the stress from the day’s ongoing work. Fix yourself a cup of tea to relax even just for a bit. TWG Tea's best-selling Silver Moon Tea is a blend of green teas accented with a grand berry and vanilla bouquet. Suave, with just a hint of spice, it’s a great green tea to enjoy in the afternoon.

Marks & Spencer’s full-flavored Earl Grey Tea blends mellow Ceylon with bright, refreshing Kenyan teas and natural bergamot oil. The natural zestiness of the bergamot compliments the vibrant tea base to create a delicious tea.

BEFORE BEDTIME
Chamomile Tea is all you need to help you slow down and finally relax after a long day. Sip a cup to help you get into a sleepy mood for that much needed rest. 

Soft and soothing, the Chamomile Tea features rare TWG Tea chamomile flowers that boast a rich honey aroma and yield a golden, theine-free cup to help unwind after a long day.

Marks & Spencer’s Pure Camomile Infusion contains Golden camomile flowers for a sweet and fragrant relaxing taste.

Quarantine creativity: 19-year-old Cebu student uses soy sauce to make art

As the quarantine keeps everyone at home for their safety, many young Filipinos spend their time honing their skills and creativity, finding ways to express themselves. With all this free time on their hands, there are those who even go the extra mile when it comes to being creative.
This was certainly the case for 19-year-old communication student Thea Sophia Disabelle, from Bantayan Island, Cebu, who stirred buzz on the internet after creating art not just through traditional mediums, but also using a medium no one thinks could be used for art: soy sauce. Yes, the very same soy sauce you ordinarily see in kitchens at home.
“It all started when I poured a little amount of soy sauce into a saucer, since I needed it for my fried fish,” said Thea, who made her first soy sauce artwork back in March using Silver Swan Soy Sauce, a staple in their pantry. “After that, I paused for three seconds while staring at it—something was beautifully formed. After I had my breakfast that day, I asked myself, ‘Why not make art using soy sauce?’”


Working with soy sauce
While Thea always had access to Silver Swan Soy Sauce as it was the family’s preferred brand since her childhood, it would take her a few more months before trying to make another soy sauce artwork after her first one. This time, however, people took notice.
“I posted it on Facebook and didn't expect to get many likes, comments and shares,” she said.
“Fortunately, it really went viral and I was so overwhelmed.”
Although Thea also creates art using more traditional mediums such as paint, pastels, and pencils, she likes the convenience that soy sauce allows, recommending it to artists who may have challenges getting art materials during the quarantine. Silver Swan Soy Sauce, made of high-quality soybeans, also provides artists a unique texture to work with, distinguishing it from the usual materials and providing a tamang-tamang timpla even to art.
“The texture looks so cool after a while,” she says. “Artists just need soy sauce, a large plate, and imagination. It's tricky to do this kind of artwork because one wrong move, you'll have to start all over again. It might be an ephemeral artwork but it's worth the effort.”
Inspiring young Filipino creatives
As some artists find new ways to make breathtaking art during the quarantine using everyday items, Thea believes that there’s really no limit to what anyone can create as long as they keep trying. She herself wants to pursue a fine arts course and eventually turn her hobby into her life’s work.
“I encourage them to be creative and make use of their time through art,” she says. “You don't need expensive art materials—you just have to go to your kitchen, get some stuff and make it your masterpiece. It's just a matter of creativity, dedication and willingness to learn something new. You just have to be creative in making nothing into something. That's how art works.”
As a token of recognition for Thea’s astounding creativity and resourcefulness, NutriAsia, makers of Silver Swan will be sending her and her family more of their products for their use—whether it’s for their food or for more of Thea’s art.

Power Mac Center celebrates 26th anniversary with bicycle donation drive


As part of its 26th-anniversary celebration, Power Mac Center is launching its “Pay it Forward” campaign to help provide bicycles to those who commute even in the middle of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Partnering with TV personality Gretchen Ho’s Woman In Action advocacy project, the campaign will acquire bikes and other protective equipment using the proceeds taken from purchases of participating products.

“We at Power Mac Center are one with those affected with the current health crisis. We applaud and support those who still find the courage to go to work to support their families despite the dangers of outside travel and the limited commuting options under quarantine. As a way to show them our appreciation and support, we would like to do the little we can to make their daily commutes a lot easier and healthier. Through Gretchen Ho’s Woman In Action project, we are able to create a venue for our partner brands and customers to help in the donation of bicycles so they can use it as their main mode of transportation,” said Joey Alvarez, Power Mac Center Director of Product Management, Marketing and Space Planning.

Founded as a way to mark Gretchen’s 30th birthday last April, Woman In Action advocates for positive change in the community by sharing stories gathered from Filipinas across the country, including advocacy projects spearheaded by Gretchen and others. The phrase itself is Gretchen’s motto and vision, as it encapsulates everything about her, ranging from her active lifestyle to her commitment to engaging with the world to learn and make a difference.

Last August 13, Gretchen posted on her official Instagram page (@gretchenho) that she was looking for 50 deserving beneficiaries to apply for 50 bicycles. She later stated in an update that she had to stop the search as the number of applicants reached over 10,000. This was a far cry from the originally intended number and only signifies the need to get more bikes. Fortunately, with the aid of PMC, Gretchen believes that more Filipino commuters will get their hands on bicycles.

“I’m very happy that I get to work with a company like Power Mac Center in this critical project. Their nationwide reach, plus bolstered with the recent increase in consumer demand for technological devices to meet work-from-home and online school demands, are sure to help me and Woman In Action purchase more bicycles for the commuting public who still can’t ride the main modes of transportation because of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Gretchen.

The Pay it Forward campaign will run until August 31, 2020. Included in the list of participating PMC products are select Apple devices and Beats models. Products from PMC partners 59S, Adam Elements, Before Anything Else, Belkin, Bondir, Laut, Microsoft, Panzer Glass, Rivacase, SanDisk, Sonix, Sudio, Tech21, and UV Care are also eligible. For the full list of participating products and more information about the partnership, visit https://about.powermaccenter.com/payitforward/.

Biggest Philippine Esports movers and makers unite, await POC accreditation


The largest and most credible esports companies and personalities in the Philippines have come together under the revamped banner of the Philippine Esports Organization (PeSO). Backed by telecommunications giant, Smart Communications, PEsO is comprised of the most recognizable names in Philippine esports – Bren Esports, Gariath Concepts, Mineski Philippines, The Nationals, PlayBook Esports, Tier One Entertainment, TV5, and TNC Holdings.

PeSO has the distinction of being the sole organization accredited by the International Esports Federation (IESF) since 2012. PeSO’s member organizations had previously worked together under the banner of the Esports National Association of the Philippines (ESNAP) and the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Esports Union (PSEU) for the successful staging of the first ever esports event in the SEA Games held in the Philippines in 2019. The AESF had sanctioned the PSEU to execute the SEA Games esports tournament. The AESF had also signed in March 2020 a landmark agreement with the IESF, wherein the IESF recognizes and acknowledges AESF as the sole federation for esports in Asia, while the AESF recognizes and acknowledges the IESF as the sole international federation for esports.

The Philippine E-Sports Organization (PeSO) has been accredited by the International e-Sports since 2012.




In the 2019 SEA Games Esports Tournament, Bren Esports, Gariath Concepts, and TNC worked under the leadership of The Nationals Commissioner Ren Vitug to be the National Technical Officials (NTOs) of the tournament, while Mineski Philippines and TV5 co-produced and streamed the event for all the participating countries. Distinguished individuals from Bren Esports, Mineski Global, PlayBook Esports, and Tier One Entertainment provided the coaching and management staff for Team Sibol, the Philippine National Esports Team. Gariath Concepts managing partner Joebert Yu was also overall competition manager for the tournament.

Member organizations of the Esports National Association of the Philippines (ESNAP) have merged with PeSO for a powerhouse group to elevate Philippine esports.

To kick off this significant milestone, PeSO will be mounting the Philippine Qualifiers for the 12th IESF World Championship to be held in Eliat, Israel in December. This year’s Philippine Qualifiers will be an online format, featuring DOTA2 and Tekken 7. Team Sibol’s Andreij “PBE.Doujin” Albar took him the bronze medal in last year’s IESF World Championships, and PeSO is confident that this time, Team Sibol can match, if not exceed, last year’s contingent’s performance and standing.

"With the support of Smart Communications, there is no doubt that we are in a stronger position to place in this year’s IESF World Championships,” said Brian Lim, president of PeSO. “Smart’s commitment to support and grow esports and the national team, Sibol, is crucial and is definitely appreciated.”

Jane Jimenez Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart, had this to say about Smart’s support for the esports national team: “Our goal is to continue leading the way to bring glory to Philippine esports. After supporting Team Sibol in the 2019 SEA Games, Smart reaffirms its commitment to the esports industry by looking for the next members of Team Sibol who will represent the Philippines in the IESF World Championships. “

PeSO has also applied for accreditation from the Philippine Olympic Committee to be the official National Sports Association (NSA) for the Philippines, giving it the main responsibility to govern and develop esports nationwide. PeSO’s application for NSA accreditation is bolstered by the unified presence of the biggest and most credible collection of esports stakeholders in the Philippines, who have tirelessly worked towards the industry’s growth and betterment since the early 2000s.

The search for the newest members of Team Sibol starts this September 2020. Details on the Philippine Qualifiers for the 12th IESF World Championship will be announced through the PeSO Facebook Page. TV5 and Cignal, who have been strong advocates of esports on Philippine airwaves, will air the Philippines Qualifiers on One Sports and One Sports Plus.
