What is power? Power has many definitions. But in spite of having several meanings, power is easily associated with the word “change.” Power is the ability of one person or object to cause change. Among people, it could be a change in behavior. Among objects, it could be a change in form. In the grander scheme of things, it could be a change in the course of events.
Today, technology is a form of power and it is undeniable that it caused various changes. But allow us not to veer too much toward the macroscopic level. Simply look at the latest issue of HWM Philippines and you will realize that individuals and products featured in the succeeding pages have the potential to cause change. All of them have the power, if not powerful.
Let us start off with some of the gaming products that we have in this issue, top-billed by the ASUS ROG GX800. Its set of specifications alone (not to mention the relatively high cost) tells you how powerful it is. But beyond the specs, imagine the possible changes it could bring to its user -- if it’s used properly. The same goes with the other gaming products featured in this issue such as the MSI GE72VR 7RE, Biostar Racing P1, ASUS Prime Z270-A, Palit GeForce GTX 1080 GameRock Premium, and the Lenovo IdeaCentre Y710 Cube -- all of them have the power to cause change. How about imaging devices, such as the Fujifilm GFX 50S, Sony A6500, CanonPowerShot SX430 IS, Leica M10, and the six action cameras in our Shootout section? All of them can be used to capture powerful images that can cause change.
So go ahead. Pick a copy of HWM Philippines and be empowered. See which of today’s devices could make you powerful and be an agent of change.
