TEMPE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- American Green (OTC Pink: ERBB) (PINKSHEETS: ERBB), the company behind The ZaZZZ marijuana vending machine has begun shipping the first of many machines nationwide last week, the first of which are going to medical marijuana dispensaries in Colorado.
Since unveiling ZaZZZ in April to a large and eager crowd of spectators, investors, and members of the press at a popular marijuana dispensary, Herbal Elements in Eagle-Vail, Colorado, the demand for the first-ever consumer-operated, automated, ID verifying, marijuana vending machine has has continued to grow.
ZaZZZ allows dispensary customers to easily come and go by purchasing the cannabis or edibles of choice without having to wait in lines or have any personal interaction with the staff. It saves time for both customers and staff, while it helps increase steady revenue for the dispensaries.
Once a customer's identification card is scanned, the ZaZZZ process uses real-time verification to match the person with their ID. If there is a positive match, the customer can make a purchase using cash, bitcoin, and soon credit or debit, once banking regulations have adjusted. If there is not a positive ID match, ZaZZZ's security will prevent operation and the prospective customer will then be directed to speak with a staff member.
Product quality is paramount for both the dispensaries and the end customer. ZaZZZ machines are climate controlled to ensure only the freshest products are dispensed.
Colorado is the first state to begin receiving the machines which will be placed at Herbal Elements in Eagle-Vail and Doctors Orders, one of Denver's premier dispensaries.
"I believe that American Green's ZaZZZ will fit perfectly in our environment and can be easily and securely operated by our customers," said Josh Bartch, Doctors Orders' president. "I'm very excited that we will be the first dispensary in Denver to use what we believe will be a revolutionary machine."
"It's an exciting time and we, of course, are very happy to be moving ZaZZZ across the country into dispensaries who understand all of the possibilities that this technology offers," says Stephan Shearin, president at American Green. "We are committed to building strong long-term partnerships with dispensaries that will continue to scale revenue and profits for years to come."
Anyone who visits the American Green Headquarters in Tempe, Az. will be able to see ZaZZZ in complete working order dispensing non-marijuana products.

ABOUT AMERICAN GREEN, INC.

Beginning in 2009, the company has developed retailing, branding, and commercial cultivating strategies in conjunction with its licensed medical marijuana retail dispensaries operating under the Altitude Organic Medicine brand name. While the Company is no longer associated with the Altitude Organic Medicine outlets in Colorado and has replaced the Altitude Organix brand with American Green, it has spent the past 18 months developing an "automated dispensary" that will offer the company's proprietary products to qualified adults in the US and around the world under its "ZaZZZ" brand.
Tranzbyte, now a wholly-owned subsidiary of American Green, will continue its plan to acquire, hold, or spin out successful divisions in what has been described in previous news releases as "dividend farming," Companies that qualify and decide to become public on their own will agree to carve out shares for Tranzbyte and dividends for ERBB shareholders.
Tranzbyte also houses the company's 10-year-old technology division which is actively engaged in the sale of its optical media enhancement products to potential customers in the US and Asia. Products in the Tranzbyte division include FLASHAlbum and FlixStix -- technologies that the company plans to be incorporated into the Company's ZaZZZ Machine while enabling distributors of optical media (CDs, DVDs, etc.) to consolidate the best features of each medium onto a single content-protected USB flash drive.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices.

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction. In order for IoT to reach its potential, smart devices must be able to work together. Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
