Texas members enjoy substantial savings on football-focused supplies from flat screens to finger food

DALLAS, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The football season comes to its exciting close Sunday, Feb. 3 with the most-watched event on television, and Sam's Club stands ready to help avid fans and amateur viewers alike prep for the big game.

Serious game watchers can depend on large pack sizes from Sam's Club for brand-named chips, dips and drinks for four quarters of super-snacking, while trophy-seeking hosts will impress with premium quality bake-and-serve appetizers and delicious game day themed cakes. For those who wish to take the guesswork out of entertaining, Sam's Club offers a free game day cake with cupcakes to all new Sam's Club members that sign up from Jan. 28 through Feb. 3.*

"At Sam's Club, our Texas-area members find no greater joy than to entertain friends and family during football season," said Corbett Jennings, Vice President-Regional General Manager at Sam's Club. "New lower prices and savings will make any gathering a super success."

Big appetites aside, game day means big eyes focused on the big screen. Just in time for the kickoff, Sam's Club offers great savings on Vizio 70-inch LED Smart TV for $1,598, a 60-inch TV for $888, or a Soundbar for $179 starting Jan. 23 (a $20 Instant Savings); or a Samsung 55-inch television for $1,248 starting Jan. 20.

New lower prices on select food items will be available Jan. 30, giving members plenty of time to stock up before the big game. Deals range from five pounds of Tyson cooked chicken wings for $15.48 to an 84-count Artisan Fresh cookie tray for $20.98. Sam's Club also has savings on soda, beer and bottled water and paper towels, cups and plates. Ready-to-eat food and snacks or ingredients to prepare your own game-day recipes – such as Pretzel-Crusted Sausage Bites – are available throughout the clubs and at SamsClub.com/meals.

Whichever occasion gathers friends and family to celebrate, the international cheeses, desserts and wine selection from Sam's Club will spruce up Oscars night and Grammy Awards gatherings, too.

Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?
