VIDEOCART ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH USA TODAY

 VIDEOCART ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH USA TODAY
 CHICAGO, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- VideOcart, Inc. (NASDAQ: VCRT)


announced that it has reached an agreement to begin providing shoppers with an electronic news service from USA TODAY. Following technical testing done over the past two months, this service will be available in all VideOcart stores within 45 days.
 This new service will offer shoppers a choice among electronic summaries of the day's top stories from four USA TODAY sections including News, Money, Sports and Life, directly on their shopping carts when in the checkout area.
 Headlines will be updated three times per day and scrolled across the bottom of the VideOcart screen. Following the USA TODAY practice, a weekend edition will be available Friday afternoon.
 The company stated that it expects this service to be quite well received among grocery shoppers, providing one further reason to use a VideOcart rather than a normal shopping cart. USA TODAY's agreement to provide this customized news service will allow the company to provide shoppers with more timely and relevant information, eliminate the purchase of various feeds from third parties, and eliminate internal costs.
 USA TODAY is the only national, daily, general interest newspaper in the USA. Printed at 32 locations across the country, USA TODAY is available nationwide. USA TODAY'S International Edition is printed in Europe and Asia and is available worldwide.
 VideOcart is a micro-marketing media company, in its development stage, installing a programmable and targetable digital communications network to video displays affixed to grocery shopping carts. This communications network, now installed in nearly 200 supermarkets across the country, allows consumer product manufacturers to reach consumers at the exact aisle location of the brand being advertised or promoted with a flexible video message.
