COLUMBUS, OH -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- There's no need to be wary of the saying, "If you break it, you buy it" any longer. Rather, just fix it. Instant Krazy Glue®, America's No. 1 instant adhesive, has been repairing life's little emergencies since 1973. Inspired by the ingenious ways its products have been used to save the day, Krazy Glue launched The Krazy Big Fix Contest in 2013 and invited people to submit their "krazy big fixes" for a chance to win $40,000.
Between March through December of 2013, 199,350 unique fixes were submitted to KrazyBigFix.com, which equaled approximately one submission every two minutes. From furniture fixes, to holiday ornament rescues, to outdoor upkeep, to tech-savvy cell phone and tablet saves, to the truly "krazy," such as a pair of shorts made out of toasted bread, Americans demonstrated how this iconic brand saves the day from life's mishaps and emergencies instantly.
Household Fixes, Personal Care, such as eyewear and broken shoes, and Automotive Aesthetic Repairs were the top three categories submitted.
Clyde A. of Denmark, Wisconsin took home 2013's $40,000 grand prize. Clyde repaired the cracked frames on his eyeglasses, confirming yet again that Krazy Glue can be trusted for even the most delicate and important fixes in your life.
- April's winner saved a sunny day when she fixed a crack in her swimming pool with Krazy Glue.
- May's winner used Krazy Glue to glue her television stand before a big move and declared, "Krazy Glue was stronger than my electric drill!"
- Krazy Glue put July's winner back in business and showcased the unparalleled precision of Krazy Glue's applicators, "I am a professional tailor and often work long hours. One night while sewing fast, I broke a rare and imported double needle that was necessary for my project to be complete. Few drops of Krazy Glue and the many tiny pieces were back in place, and the mistake was no more!"
- December's winner, Ivan, proved that wherever life takes you, Krazy Glue is your handy, just-in-case weapon to tackle repairs even when you're on the go, by repairing his granddaughter's sunglasses while they were at the Miami Dolphins vs New England Patriots game.
2014's Krazy Big Fix contest is scheduled to kick off April 13th. Monthly prize winners are selected at random, and a grand cash prize of $40,000 will be awarded to one lucky participant. Participants can submit as many fixes as they want, as often as they want, to increase their chances of winning. Beginning April 13th, entries can be submitted through a variety of digital and social channels, including online at www.krazybigfix.com, uploading to Instagram or tweeting with the hashtag #KrazyBigFix, with a photo and brief details about the fix.
Krazy Glue's unique formulas and precision applicators are perfect for creating the strongest bond on even the most delicate jobs. Only a small amount is required for repairs, and it bonds instantly to any surface with a light touch -- no other chemicals, clamps, or heat sources are necessary.
Small and portable enough to store in your purse, glove compartment or junk drawer, Krazy Glue delivers a krazy strong, krazy fast bond for your toughest challenges. Available in seven sizes, six unique formulas and six applicators, including single-use and precision tip, Krazy Glue has an instant glue solution for any repair:

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number?

In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
