Kayem Celebrates Fans Watching the Game from Home By Rewarding One Lucky Winner With the Price of a Ticket to the Game in Indy

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. For official rules, visit Kayem.com/rules.

"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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. 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...
