Bracing for the Internet of Things era, in which almost everything will be connected via the Internet, Samsung Electronics has launched a trio of hardware development packages to make it easier for startups and tech enthusiasts to build connected gadgets and wearables.Samsung Electronics rolled out a platform called Artik at the Internet of Things World conference in San Francisco last week aimed at providing companies with the sensors, processors and tools needed to make Internet-connected devices. Artik comes in three variations: Artik 1, Artik 5 and Artik 10. Artik 1 is designed to be used for small, low-power devices. The next two versions will be used for devices that perform more complex tasks. Artik 5, for example, incorporates a 1 GHz dual-core processor and on-board DRAM and flash memory to power bigger devices that require more power. Artik 10 is equipped with an eight-core processor, full 1080p video encoding and decoding functions for devices to be used on home servers and in commercial or industrial settings.Artik 1 will cost "less than $10" for every device it is used on, Sohn Young, chief strategy officer at Samsung Electronic, said at the conference. "We are providing the industry"s most advanced, open and secure platform for developing IoT products", Sohn said. "By leveraging Samsung"s high-volume manufacturing, packaging technologies and extensive ecosystem, Artik will allow developers to rapidly turn great ideas into market-leading IoT products and applications".

Yewon Locks Lips with Henry on “We Got Married”

On the recent episode of “We Got Married” which aired May 23, Yewon unexpectedly kissed Henry in the lips after he failed to kiss her first.

While enjoying their date at a nice park, Henry suddenly pushes Yewon to a lamp post and tries to kiss her. However, the mood breaks when the two burst out laughing. He makes it up by just making a kissing sound, and is unable to hide his upset face.

Yewon becomes impatient and asks, “Look at me. Do you like me?” and Henry answers, “Yes.” Right at that moment, Yewon leans in and plants one on Henry’s lips. Afterwards, she turns shy and hides in his arms.

Top vlogger shares tips on making it big

Top vlogger shares tips on making it big

Yang Ji-young has formed the unusual habit of filming every trivial incident that happens in her daily life. But because of her goofy and lighthearted personality, even making ramen or feeding her dog becomes worth watching, and this is proven by the fact that she easily attracts more than 200,000 views for each of the homemade videos she uploads to her YouTube channel.Yang who is better known by her nickname Yangdding, or YD, is a YouTube superstar in Korea who runs multiple channels, one of which has more than 1.2 million subscribers - the largest number for an individual content creator in this country.Her career in the wired world started as a vlogger, or a video blogger, on AfreecaTV, a streaming service based in Korea. She began by uploading videos of herself playing online games and commentating at the same time. The vlogger switched to YouTube two years ago and expanded her spectrum to eating, traveling, cooking and more. With a little bit of "Yangdding" in it, every object magically turned into something interesting.Recently, her career has expanded to launching a mobile app as well called Yangdding TV, where her followers can easily watch her newly uploaded videos. However, it seems like her biggest success is yet to come. With everything she has achieved so far, no one could predict what she has to offer next. "Filming the things that don"t seem to attract attention is the key to the popularity of my videos", said the 25-year-old in a recent interview with the Korea JoongAng Daily at her studio in Suwon, Gyeonggi.Q. How did you start your career?A. For AfreecaTV, I started because my friend said that me talking to myself while playing computer games was pretty funny. Then I expanded my platform to YouTube, which made things a lot easier for me because I could plan and shoot the videos in advance, while AfreecaTV was all about live broadcasting. I had to prepare everything for the two-to-three-hour show. If the comments I prepared were well-received by the audience, that day was a success. But if not, it was a failure. For YouTube, however, I can cut out the unfunny parts whenever I want after I shoot the video in advance. I still do live broadcasting in AfreecaTV now, but the content is more coordinated toward editing for YouTube. Also, in terms of followers, I collected about 900,000 on AfreecaTV over the past eight years, but for YouTube we are almost reaching 1.3 million in just a couple of years. Did you expect this much popularity when you first started?Not at all. When I first started commentating on online games, there weren"t even that many women doing the job. So there were some misunderstandings about me, [with people] saying that I didn"t have any friends or was an outsider. What was your strongest point as a female game vlogger?In terms of playing games and the content, there is no difference at all. But I can say one thing that our channel is a little more sentimental than others. We can express happiness, sadness and craziness and it wouldn"t feel awkward at all. Although a YouTube star is often referred to as an "individual broadcaster", your channel features a lot of other members known as the "Yangdding Crew". How did you guys come together?It was all natural. At first, I asked my viewers for help when I needed help editing videos or drawing graphics. I paid them back by buying dinner back then. However, with the business getting bigger and forming a firm profit structure, I wanted to work with them. Every single person on the staff used to be viewers. You started as a game vlogger, but now you run so many channels on diverse themes. How do you come up with the ideas?I use my life patterns the most. I believe that there must be people out there who are curious about the same things that I"m curious about. For example, if there is a new menu item launching, I have to taste it myself no matter what others say, which is why I started running the "Daemeoknyeo" [one of her regular series where she tries a new menu and critiques it].How long does it take for your idea to become a reality?It proceeds instantly, because the trend changes at a fast pace as well. However, there are times when we let go of certain ideas during the shooting process because the result isn"t something we imagined. Also, there are times when we start from point A and end at point B. Our videos are vulnerable to all external factors. What"s your next idea?There are so many ideas that I can"t pick one [laughs]. Well, I have always liked traveling. Not the type where you have to visit every tourist site, but something that is more spontaneous, where you go out on the street with only a nice restaurant in mind and go as your heart leads you. I want to reflect all those processes in my camera and tell people that there is this kind of a way to travel as well. What"s the best part of being an individual content creator?I think the most interesting part about my job is the fact that everything can be a theme for my show"s content as long as there is a camera. When I"m with my friend and he or she brings something interesting, I borrow it right away and film it. Why do you think people like your videos so much despite the fact that nothing extraordinary appears in them?I insist on filming things that are very common but which nobody would bother to film. If you want to do something that is too creative, it won"t be able to win the viewers" hearts. I try to walk the fine line between the concept of being ordinary and extraordinary. When do you feel most worthwhile as a content creator?When somebody comments on my video saying that he or she has followed what I did before such as eating a certain product or going to certain restaurant. When they say "Yandding is believable", I truly get the feeling that we are interacting. You are definitely a market leader as an individual creator on YouTube. But there are many followers who are increasingly becoming popular. How do you feel about that?I don"t care about them that much. When I was doing the live show in AfreecaTV, I needed to have that power to suck in the audience and make them stay tuned. But the key point of being successful on YouTube is the capacity to produce, and we are not lagging behind in that at all because we have the crew. Right now the YouTube platform has to get bigger in order to attract more of an audience. A bigger market would lure in more visitors, and if Yangdding can shine among the other producers, I think we will be OK. What is your biggest challenge these days?The expectation people have on me is the most stressful thing. People sometimes say I have to be perfect and that the quality of my videos should be good just because I am Yangdding, but it can get burdensome sometimes. What would you recommend to young people aspiring to be the next YouTube star?I think they have to keep trying no matter what the result is. If they keep uploading their videos they will see the particular clips that get good reviews. From then on, they have to choose and focus on the selected themes. However, I see a lot of young people these days who are let down at the fact that the first few of their videos weren"t successful. I also want to say that when you are a budding YouTuber, you can fail as much as you want because you don"t have anything to risk. However, once you start to gain popularity, the freedom to make videos will become highly restricted due to the expectations of viewers.BY JIN EUN-SOO [jin.eunsoo@joongang.co.kr]

Big Bang”s “Happy Together 3″ episode surprisingly revealed to have recorded lowest viewer rating in the history of the show

"Happy Together 3"s special Big Bang episode on May 21 has surprisingly recorded the lowest rating in the show"s 8th year run as "Happy Together 3", and the lowest rating in 16 years counting all seasons of "Happy Together"


This comes as a huge shock as there had been immense interest in Big Bang"s appearance on the program, as it was the first time the group had guested on a KBS variety show in 7 years.


Even the "Happy Together" staff were likely expecting higher ratings (even though the show has been struggling recently), as the episode was aired as 100 minutes instead of the usual one hour.

Their segment in the show will include other cute scenes including one in which Yewon is seen doing something with Henry’s hair.
