Samsung : Enhanced Edge, Enhanced S Pen
01:46 PM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – September 1, 2015 – It’s always good to celebrate the things that make us unique. Indeed, it’s these qualities that make life such a fascinating experience. When it comes to Samsung devices, without a doubt the most stand-out feature is the edge screen on the Galaxy S6 edge. This design has been so popular and innovative that Samsung has given the edge even more functionality—and given the phone a larger brother with the launch of the Galaxy S6 edge+.



When the Galaxy S6 edge launched earlier this year, it was heralded as a masterpiece. Its design was breathtaking, its functionality thrilling. But it was the edge user experience that separated it from the pack and that is where Samsung, as a constant innovator, has set a new standard for what a smartphone can do, and how we can use it. That’s why the Galaxy S6 edge+ is a natural progression, because if there’s one thing that Samsung is known for, it’s our dedication to offering our users a better, more complete experience.

BIOS Option Of The Week - USB Memory Type
03:36 PM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition.

Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.



This week, we will be taking a look at the USB Memory Type BIOS setting. Here’s an excerpt :
"When set to Shadow, the BIOS will keep the USB driver in shadow memory, a reserved area of system memory above the first 640 KB which stores a copy of the BIOS for quicker access.

When set to Base Memory (640K), the BIOS will load the USB driver into..."
