UPDATE: Get More Game for Less This Black Friday and Cyber Monday With Door Buster Pricing on MG -- the First Pocketable Wi-Fi Android App-Gaming System

Already a Hit With Teen Sensation Coco Jones, Media & Mom Bloggers Nationwide, MG Introduces Colorful New Cases and Premium Combo Charger Accessories; Value Pricing Continues Even After Black/Cyber Weekend Promotional Sales Conclude

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/20/12 -- PlayMG™ Corp. announced today that the MG will be available on Black Friday and Cyber Monday at a significant savings starting at 9:00 p.m. Eastern on Thanksgiving evening. Holiday shoppers visiting Amazon.PlayMG.com and PlayMG.com during this time period will be able to buy the first pocketable Wi-Fi Android app-gaming system for young people at truly door buster pricing. Along with $40 in games, credit and an 8GB Micro SD card included with every MG, new MG accessories and bundles are being introduced at value pricing that will remain in effect after Black/Cyber Weekend sale pricing concludes.

Fourteen year-old singer, actress, songwriter and dancer Coco Jones, whose first single on her new label Hollywood Records comes out in early December, was one of the first young people in the U.S. to get an MG. "With the MG, everywhere I go I can play my favorite games, listen to music, keep in touch with my friends, and even watch my favorite shows and movies. I love that I don't need to worry about it running out of memory, or racking up my phone bill."

Media and mom bloggers nationwide have also become fast fans of the new MG. "It's a little bundle of nifty," according to Mike Fahey of Kotaku; Sean Buckley of Engadget called MG "a portable Android gaming solution for kids"; and Mike Snider of USA Today reported on the MG "for parents who want to wrest control of their smartphone or tablet from their children." One of those parents is ScaryMommy Blogger Jill Smokler.

"I have to say, the MG is pretty cool," said Smokler. "It's just as sleek and sharp and appealing as my iPhone but made just for kids. No more deleting my emails or downloading stupid apps or throwing a fit when, God forbid, I need to use my own electronic. It also sends weekly alerts to parents about exactly which apps have been downloaded and how much it has been used. It is perfect for the times when I need to quiet Evan but don't want to sacrifice my own beloved phone."

MG Introduces 'More Game' Accessories (Available on Amazon.com and PlayMG.com)
A variety of five durable new MG cases in various cool colors are now being offered for $14.99 each. A Quikcell2 premium charger that includes a special USB and outlet combo charger is $9.99.

Three MG Value Bundles (Available exclusively at PlayMG.com)
Three MG value bundles now available include: an MG system, case and combo charger for $159 (a $15 savings); an MG system and two cases for $169 ($10 savings); and an MG case and a charger for $19.99 (a savings of $5).

The MG was specifically designed to fill a void currently experienced by young people who are not old enough to have their own smartphones, or whose parents have found data plans costs prohibitive. Unlike the Nintendo 3DS or Sony Vita, the MG does not demand expensive $40+ cartridge games, and enables young people to enter the world of free, portable app play. MG delivers a sophisticated, sleek look, unlimited expandable memory and many other unique new features in the mobile games category. Opposed to the bulkiness of tablets, the MG was created to be sturdy, ultra portable and pocket-sized -- providing portable app play anywhere and everywhere.

MG is already topping holiday gift wish lists and is as appealing to moms as it is to kids. The MG comes with 11 games from top developers; built-in Wi-Fi; a big 4" touchscreen with rounded corners and grip providing a perfect hold on the app-play experience; 4GB of built-in memory and an 8GB SD card (this is an important advantage as many smartphones, tablets and even the iPod touch carry a higher suggested retail price than the MG, but offer only a fixed memory with no ability to ever expand it). The MG Family Collaboration System includes a "Digital Wallet" and "Remote Trust" notification functions new to the mobile gaming space.

PlayMG™ Corp. is a startup formed in 2012 comprised of technology, game and social industry veterans (and parents) who have come together to affordably reimagine play for young people, while enabling mom and dad to get back their smartphones and tablets. PlayMG is the visionary creator of MG™ -- the first dedicated, pocketable Wi-Fi app-gaming system for the Android market.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
