CULVER CITY, Calif., Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Movie Channel (SMC) announced today the launch of a multi-faceted digital campaign to further enhance the viewing and social experience for fans of the blockbuster 2009 film JULIE & JULIA. The multi-platform campaign includes THE JULIE & JULIA APP, a comprehensive application now available to Facebook users through December 31. The immersive app, featuring multimedia content such as an interactive recipe guide and movie trivia, has been set up as a stand-alone tab on SMC's Facebook page at Facebook.com/SonyMovieChannel.

The tablet-friendly JULIE & JULIA APP allows for easy swiping through menu selections, which feature cast information, production stills, and an in-depth recipe section where aspiring chefs are asked "What Do You Feel Like Making Tonight?" The recipe section is powered by BakeSpace.com, whose members contributed appetizer, side dish, soups/salad, main course and dessert recipes for the app. BakeSpace is a grassroots online community and cookbook app publishing platform for people who love to cook, swap recipes and share their passion for all things food-related.

"A top priority for us at Sony Movie Channel is to provide the best movie experience for our fans. With so many wonderful social tools now available, we're able to involve our audience with our programming on a deeper level, by providing interactive opportunities like our JULIE & JULIA Facebook app," said Superna Kalle, general manager of Sony Movie Channel and Cine Sony Television.

To further connect with passionate film enthusiasts, SMC is offering a limited edition JULIE & JULIA sticker to all fans that check-in to the channel on GetGlue.com. The sticker will be available from December 5 until December 31.

This campaign was created to promote the network's debut of JULIE & JULIA on Friday, December 7. The film is airing back-to-back that night at 8:00 PM E/5:00 PM P and 10:30 PM E/7:30 PM P. It will also air Tuesday, December 18 at 10:00 PM E/7:00 PM P as part of a tribute to the film's director, producer and writer, the acclaimed Nora Ephron. JULIE & JULIA was Ephron's final film before passing in June 2012. Viewers can watch JULIE & JULIA again on December 23 at 10:00 PM E/7:00 PM P and December 24 at 9:30 AM E/6:30 AM P.

Ephron, who admits to being obsessed with food, was able to feature her passion in this film, recreating some of Julia Child's most famous entrees from her iconic cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The book plays a key role in the plot, as food blogger Julie Powell (Amy Adams) attempts to cook each of Child's (Meryl Streep) recipes, while chronicling her progress over the course of a year. Preceding JULIE & JULIA, SMC will broadcast THIS IS MY LIFE, Ephron's directorial debut from 1992.

SMC prides itself in providing the most engaging and entertaining viewing experience for the Hollywood film fan. The network's visionary tagline, Films with Benefits, encompasses all representative parts of the network. These Benefits include a commitment to delivering digital content innovatively and on preferred viewing platforms. THE JULIE & JULIA APP is the latest in a continued stream of digital offerings from SMC. The network plans to deliver similar content on a regular basis.

What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof?

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
