VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- Digital Shelf Space Corp. (the "Company" or "DSS") (TSX VENTURE: DSS)(PINKSHEETS: DTSRF) announced today that the Company and Gaiam Americas, Inc. ("Gaiam") have mutually agreed to terminate the distribution agreement between the two parties for the Company's flagship product GSP RUSHFIT. Terms of this termination agreement remain private and confidential.
"We have worked very closely with the DRTV team at Gaiam over the past 8 months. However, Gaiam and DSS have agreed that now is the time for DSS to retake control over all aspects of distribution with respect to GSP RUSHFIT" said Jeffrey Sharpe President and CEO for DSS. "The collaboration with Gaiam has been successful so far. In fact, GSP RUSHFIT had its best single sales day in the history of the product on Amazon.com earlier this month. However, DSS believes that, by taking back control of the distribution, there is even greater potential, and we believe we can become one of the real leaders in the category."
As a result of this development, DSS (in cooperation with Gaiam) is in the process of transitioning the operations of the gsprushfit.com website back to the Company, re-establishing a direct selling relationship with Amazon.com, and taking on directly all vendors (including warehousing and fulfillment, call centers and media buyers). This transition should be completed by the end of February, 2014.
In addition to transitioning the distribution of GSP RUSHFIT and the day to day cash flows back to DSS, the Company is also in the process of completing the new infomercial for the PGA TOUR's TOURAcademy Home Edition, with final production having taken place the week of January 6, 2014, with an anticipated completion date of the end of the month. DSS will look to begin test marketing of the new infomercial leading into the spring and the beginning of the golf season. TOURAcademy Home Edition is the TourAcademy's comprehensive golf improvement program. Players at all skill levels take nine lessons at home then hit the range where they follow an 8-week, step-by-step practice plan to master their full swing and learn stroke-saving short game techniques. The program comes complete with two training aids, a contact bag and alignment sticks, and the TOURAcademy instruction manual and practice guide.
GSP RUSHFIT was designed to appeal to the massive global audience with an interest in MMA and MMA training methods as a complete home fitness workout program. GSP RUSHFIT combines three of the hottest fitness trends. The complete program uses various MMA conditioning exercises, intense circuit style training and body weight training for fitness consumers to build muscle, cut weight and get in shape. GSP RUSHFIT is unlike any fitness program available. This program was carefully designed to give the most efficient and effective workout possible at home with minimal equipment. When consumers see how hard internationally respected athlete Georges St-Pierre pushes himself, working out alongside him will motivate and inspire consumers to push themselves harder, and achieve more than they ever thought possible. Georges St-Pierre has dedicated his life to Mixed Martial Arts and is regarded as one of the top conditioned athletes not only in the sport, but also in the world. Fitness fans everywhere can benefit directly from the same commitment GSP has made to his own health and fitness.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
