Boost your productivity at home with Canon PIXMA G Series Printers

Canon Philippines has expanded its line of PIXMA Ink Efficient G Series printers with the addition of its latest refillable ink tank models for high ink volumes and low cost printing.

Ink filling is fast, drip-free, and hands-free, allowing users to complete the entire unboxing and setup process in just minutes, while maintaining a mess-free workstation.

The user-replaceable maintenance cartridge design of the new Canon G series will also save users numerous trips to authorized service facilities.

Christmas goes digital in the ‘Wonderful World of Globe’

Christmas is fast approaching but many of us (including myself) could barely feel it. Mainly because of the effects of the pandemic that we couldn’t go about our usual Christmas traditions, like meeting friends and family or go all-out in shopping for gifts, decorations, and other Christmas stuff.

Despite this, the desire to enjoy our usual holiday activities and observe cherished local traditions remain strong. After all, the true spirit of Christmas is about hope, joy, and the eternal anticipation of good tidings. 

Thankfully, Globe is here to uplift the lives of Filipinos and rekindle Christmas cheer in everyone’s hearts with its newly launched Christmas campaign, the Wonderful World of Globe (WWG). 

“Our aim is to recreate the Christmas we all love. We take to heart our role in renewing the spirit of connectedness within the Filipino family especially at a time when most of us stay within the confines of our homes.  It is also a great opportunity for each of us to do more for others and continue spreading cheer to everyone we can reach,” said Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO.

Surf4ALL

As quick, easy and flexible internet access became the new essential, this year’s WWG is the perfect time to launch the revolutionary product offer of Globe.

Surf4ALL is a first-of-its-kind, fully convergent data offer that knows no boundaries across Globe brands.  This promo gives you high GBs for all sites and a shareable GB allocation that is seamlessly accessible to up to 4 users or devices. Now, you can share data with Globe Prepaid, Globe Postpaid, Globe Platinum, Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi, and even TM. 

Available through the GlobeOne app, Surf4ALL has 2 promos – Surf4ALL99, which gives you 9GB of shareable data, and Surf4ALL249, with 20GB shared access (15GB + 5GB limited-time bonus data). Both offers are valid for 7 days.  It’s the only data product of its kind in the Philippines today to ensure no one is left behind when it comes to connectivity.  This is the true universal data offer for all Globe customers which makes it possible to be constantly connected regardless of brand, device, and location.

The combination of Globe’s ever-improving network and the innovative Surf4ALL product gives Filipinos the ability to really make the holidays richer and better, by giving them access to daily essentials and services they will find both useful and enjoyable throughout the season.  

PureGo

As online shopping continues to surge in popularity, 917Ventures, the largest corporate incubator in the Philippines, partnered with Puregold to create PureGo, an online grocery shopping platform that delivers groceries at one’s doorstep with a next day delivery promise, using multiple payment options including GCash.

Gaming

Enjoying various content such as video, music, games, and sports can enhance family bonding so Globe partnered with Riot for special data offers for League of Legends: Wild Rift the mobile version of the highly-popular League of Legends. 

And, with the continuous expansion of Globe’s 5G service, more exciting forms of innovation can be expected for Globe customers. One of which is coming from the partnership of Globe with Niantic. As the first Southeast Asian telco member of the Niantic Planet-Scale AR Alliance, Globe will drive bigger and better immersive gaming experiences powered by Niantic’s advanced AR real-world platform that will push the boundaries of what can be experienced in a Niantic game with 5G technology. Niantic is an AR company, inspiring people to explore the world together.

Another interesting 5G-enabled service that brings entertainment to a whole new level is from Globe’s official partnership with YouTube VR. This will enable users to watch and explore VR content in-app through the affordable yet effective Globe VR cardboard. This further enhances the customers’ online entertainment experience and online learning at home.

With HBO GO, Globe customers can watch thousands of hours of shows and movies any time anywhere using their connected device. Filipinos can stream or download HBO Originals, HBO Asia Originals, Korean and Chinese dramas, Hollywood blockbusters, hundreds of hours of kids and family content and more, including Sam Mendes’ war film 1917, Spider-Man: Far From Home starring Tom Holland, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy and Cartoon Network’s We Bare Bears: The Movie.

Globe x Kumu

Globe also joined hands with Kumu, a Pinoy-centered live streaming platform, which is home of local and global user-generated Pinoy lifestyle content, and digital content partners like GKNB (Game Ka Na Ba?), a gamified FYE (For Your Entertainment) focused on celebrity streams, talk shows, variety content and MYXPH for music. Kumu will also be adding game streaming channels into their mix as part of their offerings on the platform. 

Charities

What is Christmas without presents?  Gift-giving is a tradition that goes back to the wise men that visited the nativity.  And while everyone loves presents from family and friends, some of the best gifts come when people share their blessings with those they may not know well but who need help.  

To help vulnerable communities during the pandemic, Globe Platinum has partnered with World Vision to create the #ForFutureHeroes program. It consists of virtual experiences in collaboration with BGC Arts Center, Electric Studio, and others that allow Globe Platinum customers to pursue their passions at home while making an impact on others. Participation in every activity is matched by Globe Platinum with World Vision school kits filled with DepEd approved learning modules and supplies, so the children of Baseco Compound, Manila can continue their education.

On top of this, Globe Platinum customers have been delighting frontliners, who have worked so tirelessly to keep Filipinos safe all these months, through the Thank-A-Hero program. Apart from sending them treats from Auntie Anne’s, Coco, The Cookie Bar, and JCo Donuts,  Globe Platinum is also preparing a Noche Buena feast for our frontliners, to thank those who will be hard at work all throughout Christmas Eve, keeping Filipinos safe.

Recognizing the pressing demand of educators for a fast, reliable, and affordable internet connection, Globe At Home initiated WiFi2Teach which supports the DepEd’s Distance Learning program through the donation of Globe Prepaid WiFi modems. Modems have been donated to the DepEd to equip selected public school teachers and ensure that education remains unhampered. The program continues as it now works towards raising funds to provide free WiFi modems for public school students. In partnership with Ayala Foundation, for every Globe At Home Prepaid Wifi sold, P100 will be donated to help fund internet connectivity of selected public school students at home. 

Gift Local

To give small and medium enterprises the much-needed boost, Globe myBusiness’ Gift Local campaign encourages everyone to patronize local products for their Christmas gift-giving.  

GCash ChristMAS KAYA

GCash brings to life our beloved Christmas traditions with ChristMAS KAYA with GCASH, where celebrations and gift giving are made possible thru innovations like GCash Send Aguinaldo, enabling users to send digital gift envelopes as aguinaldos to their inaanaks and pamangkins, and even gifting insurance thru the app’s GInsure service. In the same spirit of giving and bayanihan, our customers may also donate to typhoon victims using GCash and their Globe Rewards points. 

GLife, the newest GCash app feature, likewise, provides more gift and handaan options across different brands and e-commerce platforms, ranging from Lazada, Puregold, DataBlitz, Purego, Boozy, Goldilocks, Goama Games, and more.

LG brings ‘Life In Details’ through its latest home entertainment lineup

Since getting married, my husband and I have only trusted LG for our home entertainment devices. The first 32-inch LCD TV we bought 10 years ago still works well to this day and could even put some of the latest models to shame.

Over the last few years, technology has evolved so fast that even the most high-tech features are quickly trickling down to consumers’ homes. LG is certainly no stranger to this as it leads innovation when it comes to TVs.

Its latest home entertainment headliner, the LG OLED GX TV uses screen technology with self-lit pixels that work independently to emit their own light. This allows for perfect black levels, outstanding colors, infinite contrast, and the sharpest details which ultimately uncovers all the detai4ls in darker scenes.

LG’s OLED technology is a perfect fit for any lifestyle and any interest. Whether your TV use caters more to Cinematic, Sports, Gaming, or Lifestyle, LG OLED TV provides the best experience possible.

Another heavyweight in LG’s lineup of TVs is the NanoCell Real 8K TV. By offering accurate, lifelike color, one is able to experience unparalleled realism at home. LG NanoCell technology produces pure colors by applying about 1nm-sized nanoparticles to filter out dull color and enhance color purity, giving you vivid and accurate hues.

Perfectly complementing the LG OLED and LG NanoCell 8K are two new speakers – the XBoom Go PL5 and PL7. These are portable Bluetooth speakers that give any room, big or small, an immersive surround sound experience. To bring their XBOOM speakers to the next level, LG has collaborated with Meridian, the British pioneers and one of the pillars of High-Resolution audio.

For gamers and would-be streamers, LG showcased two of its newest monitors. LG UltraGear™ monitors are the perfect way to get started with esports and gaming, owing to their versatility in performing other tasks without losing a step. Plug it in, play a game, and immerse yourself. LG UltraWide™ monitors are the perfect working-from-home companion, giving you a wide screen area to multi-task and boost your productivity. A whole new world awaits.

LG Managing Director Inkwun Heo spoke about the role that home entertainment plays in the new normal. “With the extended amount of time we’re now spending at home and in the foreseeable future, we really get to see Life in Details. We learn to appreciate how technology makes our life better. As staying at home becomes the ‘new normal’, I assure you, with our new Home Entertainment System, you would want to stay at home.”

LG products are available in Lazmall and other authorized online sellers and dealers nationwide. For a complete list of retailers, please visit www.lg.com/ph
