Advantages of Mobile Online-to-Offline Commerce with WeChat
10:13 AM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

Online-to-Offline Commerce has been around as a marketing tool for many brands out there such as targeted SMS to encourage users to visit outlets nearby. Despite being a rather used marketing tool, online-to-offline commerce has taken on a new approach with mobile apps such as WeChat that provides a more engaging interaction between brands and their consumers. With apps such as WeChat that helps to engage consumers differently than existing O2O commerce, brands are open to new possibilities to market their products and services better.



When a physical store employs consumer social media sharing, customer feedback, promotions, and launches regarding its merchandise or services online; that is called offline-to-online marketing to engage and enhance their online presence among consumers. Vice versa, online followers can also be influenced in the same way to engage in offline activities, which can be done by utilizing WeChat’s O2O (Online-to-Offline) service.

AMD Catalyst 15.4 Beta is now available - GTAV Optimized!
09:43 AM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

April 15, 2015– AMD is proud to welcome Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar Games as the newest addition to the Gaming Evolved family. We’ve been working closely with our friends in Toronto, Canada and Leeds in the UK, and as part of that collaboration the game features AMD’s Contact Hardening Shadows (CHS).



This technique dynamically hardens or softens a shadow’s edges depending on the distance of the shadow from the light source and object casting that shadow. This means softer shadows that diffuse more realistically. To enable CHS in the game, simply select AMD CHS from the ’Soft Shadows’ drop down menu. The game also has a built-in benchmark, which should make it easy to test different hardware configurations.

Western Digital My Passport portable hard disk drives are popular because they are not only fast, they also come with hardware encryption which allows for instantaneous encryption of all data.

This is very useful because the encryption capability is built right into the drive and is very easy to use. In addition, the encryption process is performed by the hard disk drive controller, so it has no effect on the system’s performance.



However, there are some things you probably don’t know about the hardware encryption feature in the Western Digital My Passport portable hard disk drives. Let’s take a look!
