PreCentral: Roundup: 2nd year anniversary


Recommended Posts

webOS Nation Tip of the DayThis week marked our 2 year anniversary of writing a daily webOS Tip for our then-PreCentral.net and now-webOSNation.com readers. Despite a roller coaster of a year since our last anniversary, which saw the release of the TouchPad and TouchPad Go, the release of the Pre3 and then the subsequent cancellation of the Pre3 after former-CEO Leo Apotheker decided to shut down the webOS Hardware decision, and then all that waiting until we learned about Open webOS (due out later this year), we have continued to bring our faithful readers tips to getting the most out of their webOS experience. While we have scaled the tips back from every day to just three times a week, we have also expanded them to include some functionality in our favorite apps that the average user may not even be aware of. 

To mark this anniversary, we would like to bring you some of our favorite and most used tips from the last year.  Continue after the break for that extensive list of tips

      Company Celebrates Decade-Long Legacy With Its Employees and Partners,
      Recognizing Their Tireless Efforts in Driving Mobility Sector Innovation
        
      SEOUL, June 29, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) marked the 10th anniversary of the establishment of its Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company this week, hosting a ceremony in Seoul under the theme of Driving Better Future Mobility, attended by over 3,000 employees. While presenting at the 10th anniversary ceremony, Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG VS Company, shared ‘Vision 2030,’ a bold initiative to secure the company’s position as a global leader in the automotive solutions market by the beginning of the next decade.
      “The surplus in sales we achieved last year is a testament to the solid business structure our company has built over the past 10 years,” said Eun Seok-hyun. “We will become a global leader in the electric vehicle (EV) components industry, driving the era of EVs and autonomous vehicles through technological and design innovation.”
      LG CEO William Cho made a special appearance at the event, delivering an inspiring message of encouragement. “We have arrived at this significant milestone thanks to the trust of our customers and the dedication of our employees,” said CEO Cho. “The LG VS Company will continue to innovate and strive for better future mobility.”
      Since establishing the VS Company in 2013, LG has continued to nurture its auto parts business, viewing it from the outset as a key driver of future growth. Moving forward a decade, LG is now strengthening its position in the global auto parts market based on consistent growth in three key areas: the LG VS Company’s vehicle infotainment solutions; LG Magna e-Powertrain, a joint venture with Magna International to develop and produce EV powertrain technology; and ZKW Group’s vehicle lighting systems.
      The LG VS Company successfully turned an operating profit for the first time in the second quarter of 2022, marking a turnaround after 26 consecutive quarters in the negative. Last year, the company recorded sales of KRW 8,649.6 billion and an operating profit of KRW 169.6 billion. It also finished 2022 with an order backlog with a total value of approximately KRW 80 trillion.
      Infotainment, which combines driving information and entertainment, provides a vehicle’s driver and passengers with enhanced in-car experiences. The heart of any EV, the powertrain – including the motor, inverter and converter – generates and transmits power. Located at the front of the car and integrating electric auto parts and sensors, the lighting system in smart vehicles plays a vital role in maintaining on-road safety.
      At the core of the company’s business lies its in-vehicle infotainment system (IVI), which employs advanced telematics (vehicle communications module) and a digital cockpit system (head unit). LG’s telematics solution secured an impressive 22.4 percent share of the vehicle telematics market in the first quarter of 2023, while its digital cockpit system has recorded a double-digit market share since 2021.
      LG’s global partners shared inspiring, congratulatory video messages that were screened at the Seoul event:
      Ahn Hyung-ki, senior vice president of the Electronics Development Center & Mobility Technology Center at Hyundai Motor Group, said, “LG has demonstrated a dedication to making better products, consistently meeting our requests by solving difficult challenges. We hope that the LG VS Company and Hyundai will continue to work together to lead the automobile industry.”
      Kwon Hae-young, vice president of the Infotainment Development Center at Hyundai Motor Group, stated, “Participating with LG in the mass production joint ceremony in 2018 was especially memorable for me. I would like to thank LG’s development team for their passion and dedication to our ongoing collaboration.”
      Jeff Morrison, General Motors’ (GM) vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain, offered these words: “We sincerely congratulate LG VS Company on its 10th anniversary. LG has been a trusted supplier to GM since even before the VS Company was officially formed, and has long proved its commitment to helping our brands provide differentiated in-vehicle experiences. Let’s all stay committed to developing innovative technologies that enhance the driving experience and promote safety on the road.”
      Julien Battiston, Head of Renault’s Software Defined Vehicle (SDV) Product Line, said, “LG has very talented software engineers and a flexible business model. I hope that we can create more success together in the future.”

      Recognized for LG’s Outstanding Contributions as a
      Top Supplier in 2022 for Infotainment and Telematics Category

      SEOUL, March 27, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) has been recognized by General Motors (GM) as an excellent supplier for its achievements in the areas of infotainment and telematics at GM’s 31st Annual Supplier of the Year Award. This year’s ceremony, which took place this week in Texas, USA, centered on the theme of ‘Momentum’.
      For nearly two decades, LG and GM have been teaming up to bring new innovations to the automotive industry. GM selected LG’s telematics control module for its OnStar service in 2006, and in 2016, based on an electric vehicle project carried out in partnership with LG. LG also provided the world’s first digital cockpit with P-OLED automotive displays for the groundbreaking 2021 New Cadillac Escalade, helping to raise the advanced in-vehicle experience and human-machine interface (HMI) design to new heights.
      During the recent pandemic, LG continued to furnish GM with high-quality auto parts without any interruption, despite the difficulties caused by the ongoing global semiconductor shortage. Last year, LG also received the Supply Chain Guarantee Award from SAIC General Motors (SAIC-GM), the joint venture between GM and China’s largest automaker, SAIC Motor. Since 2014, GM has named LG a trustworthy supplier six times.
      Through an extensive research and development program, and based on digitalization and the use of its advanced core technologies, LG is focusing on delivering new in-car experiences and greater value to its automaker partners. As part of this, LG is creating an innovative HMI for software-defined vehicles (SDV) that will integrate various vehicle components, collecting and analyzing real-time environmental data. The information displayed through the new HMI will support drivers to make better on-road decisions and help enhance the comfort and safety of all driving occupants.
      “We are thrilled to recognize these outstanding suppliers after yet another challenging year in the automotive industry,” said Jeff Morrison, GM vice president of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “They overcame countless obstacles and exemplified what it means to be resilient, resourceful and determined. Beyond that, these suppliers demonstrated their commitment to sustainable innovation and to driving advanced solutions in collaboration with the GM team.”
      “As our steady and solid partnership with GM suggests, LG has become a trusted and respected innovative partner to leading players in the automotive industry,” said Eun Seok-hyun, president of LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company. “Moving forward, LG will continue to collaborate, create and contribute to the realization of the future mobility era.”

      With a Stylish Design, Personalized Content and LG’s Renowned DUAL Inverter,
      New Residential Air Conditioner Creates a Chic and Comfortable Living Environment

      SEOUL, Dec. 16, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is ready to unveil its latest ARTCOOL Gallery air conditioner at CES 2023. Boasting a 27-inch LCD screen and LG’s upgradable options, the new model can display personalized content to match any season or to instantly refresh the room using the LG ThinQ app. It also delivers energy-efficient cooling and heating with LG’s DUAL Inverter Compressor and 3-way indirect airflow, provides a more hygienic performance with AI Dry and offers a variety of user-friendly features including an intuitive mobile app.
      Presenting exclusive content on a bright LCD screen bordered by a simple, yet sophisticated frame, the ARTCOOL Gallery gives one the impression they are looking at a framed work of art rather than an advanced LG air conditioner. Using the LG ThinQ app, users can select from a growing range of gorgeous, static and animated images – or choose from favorite family photos – and display something new whenever they feel like a change. The new model can be easily managed using the included smart remote or via a mobile app1 that lets users choose settings and functions as well as monitor the appliance’s status in real-time, from any location.
      Equipped with the company’s DUAL Inverter Compressor, the new ARTCOOL Gallery delivers energy-efficient cooling, using up to 70 percent less power than a conventional residential air conditioner.2 The new model’s 3-way airflow provides indirect airflows suitable for the space. LG’s latest ARTCOOL Gallery also helps create an indoor environment that is as peaceful as it is comfortable, operating at noise levels as low as 20 decibels and closing its ‘hidden’ bottom vane in sleep mode so as not to disturb or disrupt users’ rest.3
      What’s more, the stunning ARTCOOL Gallery provides pleasantly fresh airflow thanks to LG’s AI Dry feature. Automatically setting the optimal drying time based on operation time and mode selection, AI Dry effectively removes any moisture that has formed inside the air conditioner. Additionally, the new model has a bottom grill that can be easily detached and cleaned4 as well as a cover that helps make installation easier.
      “Offering outstanding performance and artistic themes fit for all tastes and seasons, our latest ARTCOOL Gallery air conditioner delivers year-around comfort and elegance,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “With the unique combination of personalized content and cutting-edge technologies, LG’s innovative, new air solution is designed to help provide consumers with a better life at home.”
      Visitors to LG’s booth (#15501, Las Vegas Convention Center) at CES 2023 from January 5-8 can see all of the company’s latest innovations, including the new ARTCOOL Gallery air conditioner.

      Company Named in Globally Respected Corporate
      Sustainability Index for Its Strong Commitment to ESG Management

      SEOUL, Dec. 13, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has earned a place in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI World) for the eleventh consecutive year, illustrating the company’s ongoing leadership in responsible ESG management.
      The DJSI World lists only the top 10 percent of over 2,500 global companies in terms of corporate sustainability, evaluating each organization based on in-depth analyses of their environmental, social and governance practices. Updated annually, the DJSI World is widely viewed by investors, governments and other key stakeholders around the globe, as a reliable indicator of corporates’ ESG commitment.
      LG scored well in all three areas of ESG management in this year’s Index. Receiving high marks for its various environmentally-focused initiatives, the company is actively reducing greenhouse gas emissions and water usage while also increasing recycling rates, converting to renewable energy sources and making steady progress toward its goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. LG reduced the total amount of direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions from its domestic and overseas sites by 40 percent last year (compared to 2017 levels).
      In terms of the social criteria measured, LG garnered a favorable assessment from the DJSI World for its strong efforts in supply chain management, workplace diversity and for the creation of an inclusive culture. The company also earned a positive evaluation for implementing transparent and responsible governance practices, including the disclosure of its Board Skills Matrix (BSM), establishment of the board guidelines on independence, expertise and diversity.
      Dedicated to realizing a more inclusive society through providing products that are truly accessible, in Korea, LG recently introduced cost-free braille stickers to enable people with visual impairments to more conveniently operate appliances. The company has also shown its commitment to meeting the highest global standards with the acquisition of ISO37301 certification from the British Standards Institution (BSI). Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ISO37301 is an internationally-recognized standard for assessing whether a company’s compliance management policies and risk management systems conform to global standards.
      In addition to being listed in the DJSI World for 11 years in a row, LG has made the DJSI Asia Pacific Index for 13 consecutive years, and the DJSI Korea Index for 14 consecutive years. Assessing the same criteria as the DJSI World, the Asia Pacific Index includes the top 20 percent of the top 600 companies in the Asia-Pacific region, while the DJSI Korea Index recognizes the top 30 percent of the top 200 companies based in South Korea.
      Furthermore, LG has been awarded Platinum status for the second straight year by independent, globally-trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, EcoVadis – putting LG in the top one percent of all companies in terms of sustainability initiatives. And for the last two years, LG has been given an ‘A’ grade by global investment research firm, Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI).
      LG’s ESG management practices and goals, including the mid- to long-term strategic tasks the company established earlier this year, are clearly laid out in its Better Life Plan 2030. The plan embodies LG’s commitment to realizing a more inclusive and diverse society by embracing differences and forming close-knit circles of alliance with company employees, corporate partners and stakeholders.
      “We will continue to do everything we can to realize our vision for a more sustainable future, leveraging our experience, innovative technologies and global presence to help make life better for all,” said Hong Sung-min, head of LG’s ESG department.

      Recognized for ‘Sustained Excellence’ in Environmental Sustainability,
      LG Also Wins EPA’s Emerging Technology Award

      SEOUL, May 5, 2022 – LG Electronics (LG) has been named 2022 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year-Sustained Excellence by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This prestigious honor, a distinction LG has received nine times since 2012, recognizes the company’s exemplary commitment to protecting the environment through leadership in ENERGY STAR certified products and promotions.
      In addition to the Partner of the Year Award, LG received the ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award last month with the EPA honoring 43 LG refrigerator-freezer models, more than any other brand. The award-winning models feature advanced adaptive compressors and use R-600a, a refrigerant with very low global-warming potential (GWP).
      Refrigerators that earn this environmental distinction outperform the federal minimum standard by at least 25 percent when the compressor is in adaptive mode compared to when the compressor is in a fixed-speed mode. Recognized products also contain low GWP (below 15) refrigerant and foam. Inverter Linear Compressor* found in LG’s refrigerator lineups efficiently keep food fresh longer and noise levels lower compared to LG’s conventional models.
      Each year, the ENERGY STAR program honors a group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy achievements. ENERGY STAR award winners lead their industries in the production, sale and adoption of energy-efficient products, homes, buildings, services and strategies. These efforts are essential to fighting the climate crisis and protecting public health.
      Under its Zero Negative Environmental Impact initiative, LG plans to establish more production sites that make a positive impact on the environment. To ensure that the company reaches its stretch goals for carbon neutrality and circular economy, LG announced its intention to reduce the use of petrochemical-based plastics by introducing up to 600,000 tons of recycled plastic into its manufacturing process by 2030 and nearly double the recovery of electronic waste to 8 million tons by then.
      LG is demonstrating what it takes to build a more sustainable future, according to EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “They are showing once again that taking action in support of a clean energy economy can be good not only for the environment, but also for business and customers. We know it’s going to take all of us working together to tackle the climate crisis,” he said.
      * Tested by VDE by comparing energy consumption between LG model GBB530NSCXE (LG Inverter Linear Compressor) and GBB530NSQWB (LG conventional reciprocating compressor). Energy consumption test based on ISO 15502 standard.
