GLENVIEW, IL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- While San Francisco may not have won the trophy tonight, they will be getting a cup... of JELL-O® pudding. Second place is nothing to be ashamed of and JELL-O, one of America's most beloved and iconic brands, along with Ronnie Lott, is honoring the San Francisco football team and its fans with a "Pudding Surprise" event this Tuesday, February 5 in San Francisco.
While all the talk these days is about advertising during the big football game and which team is favored to win, JELL-O is the first to take a different approach and celebrate the runner up. As a continuation of the "Fun Things Up" campaign, which kicked off with JELL-O saving the world from the Mayan apocalypse, the new 30-second TV spot shows JELL-O celebrating the accomplishments of the San Francisco team. The spot premiered following the game and was created by CP+B.
"A successful season is reason enough to celebrate, because even when you lose some, you win some," said Greg Gallagher, Senior Brand Manager, JELL-O, Kraft Foods Group, Inc. "JELL-O has always been about funning things up and we want a put a smile on the town that has its spirits down -- plus nothing masks the bitter taste of defeat like the sweet taste of JELL-O Pudding. There's nowhere else we'd rather be than San Francisco."
"San Francisco should be proud of the team's accomplishments -- we've had a great season," said Ronnie Lott. "I'm thrilled to be working with JELL-O in the city I love, and where I played for years, to remind people to smile, celebrate great moments and have fun!"
On Tuesday, San Francisco residents can meet Ronnie Lott at Broadway and Columbus Ave. at 12:30 PM PST and receive free JELL-O Pudding cups(1). For additional "Pudding Drop" locations and times in San Francisco, please visit www.FunThingsUp.com.
Fans not in the area can visit www.FunThingsUp.com for a JELL-O digital coupon to celebrate(2). And since no one likes being pushed when they're down, San Francisco fans can download a browser plug-in at www.FunThingsUp.com to block any gloating from Baltimore fans.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

As we approach the next @ThingsExpo, to be held June 9-11 at the Javits Center in New York, my thoughts naturally turn to the Internet of Things. The IoT is a leviathan—in the best possible sense of the term—that will sweep up most everything in the ocean of data and technology being created today and tomorrow. But rather than try to grasp all of its possible uses, for today I'm looking at “just” the Industrial Internet part. I just read a long paper co-authored by Tim Berners-Lee about the possibility of describing a “web science,” that is, discipline that combines the study involved ...

Recent technology advances in miniaturization has positioned the wearables as the pinnacle of technology convergence with the human body. We inquire if wearables are mere standard miniaturized devices extended with the connectivity and present our views on considerations like design, applications, performance, efficiency, interoperability, usage scenarios, human device interaction and consequent trade-offs enabling wearables to impart optimal value.
