Soul and Vibe Signs Worldwide Licensing Agreement With John Deere

Gaming Company to Create Games and Apps Based on the John Deere Brand

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Soul and Vibe Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SOUL), "The Company," a video and computer games company, today announced the signing of a multi-year licensing agreement to develop and publish new video games, entertainment apps, and digitally-distributed content based on the John Deere brand.

Under the agreement, Soul and Vibe will develop and publish games and entertainment apps based on John Deere's extensive line of agricultural and construction equipment, and more, for consoles, mobile devices, personal computers, and social media platforms such as Facebook. The Company also has the rights to develop and publish John Deere-branded virtual apparel and digital items for Avatars, as well as other digitally-distributed content.

"We're pleased to announce Soul and Vibe's new relationship with Deere & Company," said Soul and Vibe's CEO and President Peter Anthony Chiodo. "I've previously had the pleasure of working directly with the John Deere brand on a variety of successful games and entertainment products, and I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to do so again. The popularity of farming themed games and simulations is constantly growing. Entering that genre of the gaming market with a powerhouse brand holds strategic significance for Soul and Vibe. The John Deere brand strongly appeals to every age group across the world. Whether it is for the instantly recognizable equipment, high play-value toys, engaging children's books, or popular apparel, John Deere is an ideal licensed-brand partner for a games company. I look forward to sharing details on Soul and Vibe's plans for a diverse line of games, entertainment apps, and digitally-distributed content with our gaming customers and shareholders."

According to the website InsideFacebook, Supercell's farm-themed game Hay Day maintains an estimated 6.8 million daily user base and projects daily revenues of over $400,000. Zynga's FarmVille 2 has approximately 4.1 million daily users and it is estimated that over 400 million people have played Zynga's line of FarmVille games. VentureBeat notes Zynga brought in 80 million monthly active players during the height of the original FarmVille's popularity.

In March 2014, Soul and Vibe published Timeless Gems, a "Free-To-Play" innovative "match-3" puzzle game for Facebook, Android devices, and Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. Since its worldwide multi-platform launch, Timeless Gems downloads have rapidly surpassed 370,000 and, as announced on April 24, 2014, monetized content sales have outperformed the industry standard for a "Free-To-Play" game.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files.
