CHELSEA, Mass., Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Only 68,000 people will have the opportunity to watch the game on February 5 in person. For the millions who haven't won the lottery or scored a ticket, Kayem Foods, the official Hot Dog and Sausage of the New England Patriots, will award one lucky winner watching from home with $2,500, the price it would cost to get into the game*. Fans can enter for a chance to win by visiting Kayem's Facebook page between January 31February 5, 2012 and clicking on the "Celebrate The Game Your Way" tab. The first 1,000 people who enter will receive a $1 off Kayem coupon and all entrants will have a chance to win the grand prize of $2,500 to celebrate their way.

"As the #1 brand of franks sold in New England, we want to celebrate New England's #1 football team," said Bob Kufferman, Kayem Senior Brand Manager. "We understand that most people can't afford to go to the game in Indy, so we want to pay tribute to the millions of tailgaters and partygoers celebrating and watching the game at home."

Kayem asked its Facebook fans what they would do with the money it would cost to buy a ticket. Buy a new big-screen TV? Host a big party with friends and family? Give it to charity?  A sampling of responses included:

  • "Buy some of the much-needed things that we've had to put off because we cannot afford them like getting our only car fixed, among others."
  • "I would put most of it toward fixing up my house to sell. The rest would go to a couple cases of Kayem Brats and moving expenses to Florida where I can cook them up in the sunshine!"
  • "Pay for bills and add to savings."

Kayem Foods, founded in 1909, is the largest meat processor in New England.  Owned and operated by the same family for more than 100 years, the company manufactures Kayem Franks, the #1 brand of franks sold in New England.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
