WITHIN 2 MINUTES, TRAFFIC BRINGS DOWN IGRILL SITE FOR 2 HOURS
SHOWING THE POWER OF FACEBOOK:
Mark Zuckerberg posted this comment on Sunday, August 19 7:00 PM PST via his Facebook account:
â€œI updated my grilling app, iGrill, today and it now has Facebook integration that lets you see what other people are grilling right now around the world. Awesome. Iâ€™m making a Fredâ€™s steak.â€Â Â After that comment, the iGrill site was inundated with visitors, causing the site to go down for 2 hours.
â€œWe were caught totally off guard by Mark Zuckerbergâ€™s post and the immediate influx of traffic,â€ Chris Allen, CEO, iDevices said.Â Â â€œWe had quietly released this update for our users earlier this month and were waiting for it to gain traction, but this obviously gives us a huge head start, thus a quick add on of servers and bandwidth was needed today!â€ said Allen, â€œWe are excited to see how this unfolds, but I would like to dispel the rumors that iGrill or iDevices received any investment from Mr. Zuckerberg to date, although we would welcome the opportunity to work with him, this is not something that has occurred yet.â€Â
iGrillâ€™s App update now lets users view maps of other people grilling around the world through Facebook,Â sharing information with all their friends and subscribers, as in Zuckerbergâ€™s case.Â Â TheÂ iGrill is theÂ worldâ€™s first wireless cooking thermometer for iPod touch, iPhone and iPad via a long-range BluetoothÂ® (up to 200 feet) andÂ App-enabled connection.Â Â iGrill turns your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into your own personal sous-chef, enabling you to multitask between your grill or oven and guests with the peace of mind that your food is perfectly cooked, at target temperature and safe for consumption.Â www.igrillinc.com.
