Le biscuit le plus prisé au monde couronne ses 100 ans en se rendant en Antarctique pour la première fois

- Une livraison exceptionnelle apporte la magie des biscuits OREO aux gens basés sur le septième continent

- ...et la magie de l'Antarctique au monde entier

DEERFIELD, Illinois, 14 décembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OREO n'a jamais introduit le biscuit au chocolat le plus prisé de la planète sur le 7e continent. Du moins, c'était le cas jusqu'à maintenant. Comme événement ultime pour souligner les célébrations du 100e anniversaire, OREO a surpris aujourd'hui les scientifiques basés à la Station Palmer de la péninsule antarctique avec une livraison hors de l'ordinaire -- 5 000 biscuits OREO, permettant à tous ces gens d'ouvrir, de goûter et de tremper un des fameux biscuits.

Le moment était tout désigné. Cette livraison unique s'inscrit dans la foulée du 100e anniversaire du premier pas de l'homme sur le pôle Sud. OREO et l'Antarctique peuvent ainsi profiter des joyeuses festivités organisées par OREO, qui couronnent les célébrations de son centenaire.

Et ça ne s'arrête pas là – la marque a aussi fait un don qui permettra au monde entier de découvrir les merveilles du septième continent au cours des prochaines années. En effet, OREO a offert aux scientifiques et aux chercheurs de la Station Palmer le premier pingouin solaire de l'Antarctique muni d'une caméra, avec l'aide d'Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropie. Les scientifiques espèrent que la caméra permettra aux enfants de tous âges, à la manière de la magie qui s'installe lorsque vous ouvrez un biscuit OREO, de mieux connaître l'Antarctique en regardant la vie des pingouins dans leur habitat naturel. 

« Il s'agit du point d'exclamation qui met un terme à une merveilleuse année de célébrations », mentionne Cindy Chen, directrice marketing, OREO. « En mars, nous nous sommes donné la mission d'aider les gens de partout à retrouver leur cœur d'enfant et je crois qu'à la lumière de cette livraison, nous avons accompli notre mission! Aujourd'hui, les amateurs d'OREO de chaque continent peuvent ouvrir, goûter et tremper un de nos biscuits. » 

En route vers l'Amérique du Sud, les biscuits ont été acheminés par le navire d'exploration 'Le Boreal' sous la surveillance d'Abercrombie & Kent, le leader dans le tourisme d'aventure de luxe. Le Dr James McClintock, un professeur de biologie marine et polaire à la University of Alabama-Birmingham qui a mené des recherches en Antarctique pendant 30 ans, a accepté de servir à titre d'explorateur honorifique de l'Antarctique OREO et de prendre en charge la livraison que lui a confiée OREO Man au nom des « habitants » du continent.

« Le fait de savourer un biscuit OREO et un verre de lait ici dans la station nous rapproche de chez nous », soutient McClintock. « Nous ne pouvons remercier suffisamment OREO de nous avoir permis de nous joindre au reste du monde pour souligner un événement aussi spécial. »

Un biscuit et son passeport

Ce n'est pas la première fois qu'OREO repousse les frontières. Avant de s'attaquer à l'Antarctique, OREO a d'abord conquis le cœur des amateurs des six autres continents. Aujourd'hui, OREO demeure le biscuit le plus vendu et ses produits ont été adaptés pour développer de nouveaux marchés culturels : TRIPLE DOUBLE OREO (É.-U.), une adaptation du OREO x3 de l'Argentine, le OREO crème glacée au thé vert en Chine, le OREO crème glacée à l'orange en Indonésie et le OREO à saveur de dulce de leche en Colombie.  

« Le biscuit OREO est synonyme de délice pour les enfants de tous âges des États-Unis depuis 100 ans », ajoute Chen. « Rien ne nous rend plus heureux que d'apporter la joie, la fraîcheur et la nouveauté aux quatre coins de la planète. »

Des célébrations axées sur une mission

En lien avec la mission festive dont OREO s'est investi, les inconditionnels peuvent se rendre sur sa page Facebook (Facebook.com/OREO) pour publier des photos, des témoignages ou des vidéos dans la galerie des moments OREO pour faire connaître à tous l'enfant qui sommeille en eux. Jusqu'à maintenant, les amateurs d'OREO du monde entier ont partagé plus d'un million de moments cette année.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lee Williams, a producer of the first smartphones and tablets, will talk about how he is now applying his experience in mobile technology to the design and development of the next generation of Environmental and Sustainability Services at ETwater. He will explain how M2M controllers work through wirelessly connected remote controls; and specifically delve into a retrofit option that reverse-engineers control codes of existing conventional controller systems so they don't have to be replaced and are instantly converted to become smart, connected devices.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
