NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Playoffs may be heating up but tailgating is about to become a whole lot cooler thanks to a game-changing agreement between Arctix and the National Football League, to bring fans the ultimate tailgating pants.
The agreement between Arctix and the NFL gives football fans everywhere the chance to tailgate in style just in time for cold weather football fare. This evolutionary product brings an all-new line of pants that Arctix has transformed into "Arctix Tail-Gaiters—The Ultimate Tailgate Pants" featuring fans' favorite team colors and logos.
Arctix Tail-Gaiters are waterproof and windproof so fans can cheer for their favorite teams no matter the weather. The Ultimate Tailgate Pants come in black and feature a ribbon of team logos down the outer leg seam and zipper pull tags in team colors. There is also a team logo near the left front pocket area. All-important "tailgating features" include a built-in bottle opener, two beverage "holsters" located on the hip and the ankle, a tether for a key chain and multiple vents for cooling down.
Arctix Tail-Gaiters are the brainchild of Alpha 6 Distributions' (parent company of the Arctix brand) CEO Matthew J. Bruderman and former NFL great, Boomer Esiason, who is partnering with Arctix on the NFL version of the Tail-Gaiter.
"Tailgating is such a huge part of the overall football game-day experience, and we thought NFL fans everywhere would jump at the opportunity to prep, grill and feast in true team style and comfort," said Esiason. "Arctix makes very high-quality snow pants, and I'm thrilled to be working with the Alpha 6 team to bring fans The Ultimate Tailgate Pants of their favorite teams."
"As snow sports' leading supplier of snow pants, Arctix is the natural industry player to team up with Boomer Esiason and the NFL in bringing high-quality, great-looking tailgating pants to NFL fans," Bruderman said.
And while there will be no official tailgating during this year's Super Bowl at METLIFE Stadium, Arctix Tail-Gaiters will allow fans to tailgate on their own and show their spirit.
"There's a lot of 'style' associated with tailgating, from special 'secret' recipes to showing your rooting loyalties through colorful and team-oriented attire," Bruderman said. "In our opinion, Tail-Gaiters are such a natural purchase for that favorite fan in your life. In parking lots across the nation, everyone wants to look cool without feeling the cold. Tail-Gaiters enable you to do just that."

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.

The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
