    So we're past the halfway point. On to appliances now.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:37:11 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:37:55 PM
    Here comes the silver kitchen on wheels.
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:37:58 PM
    John Herrigton, SVP of Samsung Electronics America, now takes the stage.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:38:41 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:39:15 PM
    Another video, this time about the Club des Chefs.
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:39:41 PM
    Herrington: 2014 was highly successful. Global sales increased by 10 percent, more than twice the industry average. Home appliances are now a major pillar for us alongside mobile and TV. And 2015 is going to be even better.

    2014 kicked off a new era for us. 2 out of 3 products were new.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:40:08 PM
    I feel like this is the theme music to a Samsungified Iron Chef spinoff.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:40:45 PM
    Time for the cooking segment! Free food for the entire room!
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:41:04 PM
    Herrington: Our lifestyles have undergone some radical changes over the past decade. The kitchen is where many of our fondest memories are created. 18 months ago we brought together world-class chefs with our R&D teams. Club de Chefs was revolutionary
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:41:25 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:41:33 PM
    Oh, I guess they won't cook on stage after all. Missed opportunity. We're all hungry out here, guys.
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:41:50 PM
    Herrington: Today we're launching the second exciting phase of the chef collection. Now truly immersive Michelin Star experience.

    Michel Troigros, Christopher Kostrow, Daniel Boulud, all chefs who advise Samsung, are now on stage

    Troisgros: Virtual flame technology. As you can see, a small or large flame shows the intensity of the heat. This lets everyone cook more precisely
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:42:06 PM
    OK, instead of real food, I guess we're all getting apps. [rimshot]
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:42:49 PM
    Boulud: Every day in our restaurant, we have this fantastic collection with our designers. Now pleased to reach people around the world with our new chef collection app. Tips etc. Think of this app as the bridge between what's happening in the world of traditional gastronomy and the home.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:43:04 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:43:30 PM
    OK, this is a new one. A kitchen-specific tablet. Hope it has a stand.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:43:31 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:44:07 PM
    A recipe for awkward photos: three chefs and an exec.
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:44:09 PM
    Herrington: This app has something for everyone and will be free in the Google Play store this spring. For our chef collection customers, we've designed a customized chef collection tablet. In addition, we've just launched the chef collection class at Ferrandi, a cooking school in France.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:44:09 PM
    Oh, I guess they won't cook on stage after all. Missed opportunity. We're all hungry out here, guys.

    LG announces a dual-door washing machine, Samsung counters with a dual-door oven.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:46:02 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:46:21 PM
    The built-in sink looks like a shaped piece of plastic. Not exactly commercial caliber, guys.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:46:23 PM
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:46:33 PM
    Herrington: Let's explore more innovation for the home. Unique design allows you to access the top or bottom sections with just one door. Now dual-door oven. Smart innovation that gives added flexibility and convenience. Four years ago we introduced the Flex Duo oven. Could cook two dishes at the same time at two temperatures.

  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:46:55 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:47:11 PM
    I kind of love the idea of "click here to clean."
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:47:22 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:47:28 PM
    Jazzy music for the wrap-up. No mobile news, apparently.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:47:46 PM
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:47:57 PM
    Herrigton also introduced ActiveWash, designed to save you time and make washing easier. In laundry, we are the innovator and clear industry leader with the highest capacity washers on the market. If you have kids or sports, you know how long you have to pre-treat in the sink.
  • James Martin 1/5/2015 10:48:11 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:48:21 PM
    I have a feeling they saved some of the big news for the keynote tonight.
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:48:59 PM
    Tim Baxter came back on just to close.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 10:49:01 PM
    Hey everyone, that's it. On behalf of Shara (who struggled through a bad Wi-Fi connection) and James, thanks for watching!
  • Michelle Meyers 1/5/2015 10:49:46 PM
    We're all done now. Thanks all for bearing with us despite connection issues!
  • Kent German 1/5/2015 10:51:14 PM
    Thanks, for joining us. Next up is Sony at 5pm. Watch it here.
