Spermy's Journey has generated $25,300 USD over the last 30 days via in-app purchases and advertising revenue.

Spermy's Journey is available for download free at the Google Play store at: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sperminator.game

Spermy's Journey is available on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spermys-journey-race-to-egg%21/id741293412?mt=8

Spermy's Journey is also available for Android users at: http://apps.goodereader.com/games/android-games-casual/?did=29746

The Company is also pleased to announce that the developer of Spermy's Journey, Mr. Brian Appell, will be joining the Company's board of advisors. Mr. Appell is a veteran tech entrepreneur and mobile app developer, and founder of Avalanche Mountain Apps, a mobile application company that focuses primarily on creating games for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

Brian Appell states: "I look forward to being a part of the Brisio team and working with them to maximize the value of their existing mobile app portfolio and to generate ideas to help grow their stable of apps".

Paul Andreola, CEO of the Company, states: "In the last 90 days, since changing our name to Brisio Innovations Inc. and launching our new business plan focused on mobile app acquisition and acceleration, the Company has successfully listed on the tech-friendly Canadian Securities Exchange, completed 43 mobile app acquisitions, increased its overall install base from 0 to almost 1.3 million and increased its combined daily downloads from 0 to over 100,000. We have also entered into a letter of intent to acquire an interest in the largest independent app store in Canada, which, if completed, will allow us to increase exposure to our growing portfolio of apps and help gain exposure for the thousands of software developers trying to gain attention for their apps in a very competitive marketplace. We feel these developments will put us in the remarkable position for a new junior tech company of being a cash flow positive business in the very near future".

"In all respects, we are ahead of our own aggressive schedule of developing new value for our shareholders. With industry statistics based on the recent acquisition of WhatsApp by Facebook and the IPO of King Digital valuing each at over $40(2) and over $60(3) per user respectively, the install base of over 1 Million users of Spermy's Journey adds substantial value to the Company. Many of the major app markets, such as North America and Asia, remain virtually untapped and should be very strong prospects for future growth of the Spermy's Journey game and franchise".

The additional value to the Company of being able to cross market the other apps in our portfolio to the over 1 million active users of Spermy's Journey make this latest acquisition invaluable to our future growth and success".

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
