Ms. Cattrall will appear in the new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! campaign as the star of a series of television commercials slated to air in March 2011. In a savvy style reminiscent of her famous television series role, Ms. Cattrall plays out some clever storylines that place her in the company of delicious-looking men and delectable food, brought to life by a series of clever double entendres and some fun wordplay.

"Enjoying I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! is kind of like finding a deliciously gorgeous man, and then discovering he's single," joked Ms. Cattrall. "That's the spirit that we're playing with in this campaign - we're showing women they can have it all - delicious taste, with fewer calories and less fat than butter."

Barry Sands, Senior Brand Manager for I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! added, "In fact, a new taste test found that four out of five butter lovers agree that I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original spread tastes just as good as fresh butter.(1) The 'You Can Have It All' campaign highlights the rich and delicious fresh butter taste of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, while reminding audiences that this taste comes with 70 percent less saturated fat and 30 percent fewer calories than butter and zero grams of trans fat per serving.(2)"

"I do love to eat, but I strive to eat well - so I love having a choice that I can feel good about using every day," said Ms. Cattrall. "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! tastes as great as fresh butter and I feel satisfied when I eat it, so I don't have to compromise."

To highlight the great taste and versatility of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!, Chef Alex Guarnaschelli of Butter Restaurant in New York City created six exclusive recipes inspired by the fresh butter taste for the campaign launch. From a Fresh Cranberry Spread for toast to I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Cookies, the recipes featuring I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! are highlighted on www.icantbelieveitsnotbutter.com.

"I grew up watching my mother make toast with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! It always was, and still is, in my family's refrigerator," said Chef Alex Guarnaschelli. "And as a chef, home cook and mother, I never want to compromise taste as I create recipes - and I don't have to when I use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! It tastes great and performs really well in a number of recipes, including sautéing and baking."

The new campaign also supports the launch of two new I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! varieties, making it easier than ever to infuse fresh butter taste into foods without compromise:

  • New I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spray made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a perfect topping for chicken and vegetables.
  • New I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Whipped & Creamy Taste has a creamy texture and tastes indulgent.

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.
Code Halos - aka "digital fingerprints" - are the key organizing principle to understand a) how dumb things become smart and b) how to monetize this dynamic. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Brown, AVP, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant Technology Solutions, outlined research, analysis and recommendations from his recently published book on this phenomena on the way leading edge organizations like GE and Disney are unlocking the Internet of Things opportunity and what steps your organization should be taking to position itself for the next platform of digital competition.
In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
