Subject: General Tech | November 2, 2006 - 12:43 PM |

Nov. 2, 2006 - Verizon and Intel Corporation have collaborated to
enable consumers to play popular PC games on their television sets
through Intel® Viiv
™ technology-based PCs, making the games more
enjoyable and accessible than ever before.

The companies will also market a version
of PlayLinc, a new game messenger that provides a faster and more
entertaining way to enjoy multiplayer games online. PlayLinc, which is
free, provides a variety of features, including free private servers,
VoIP integration and the ability for players to track when their
friends are online and ready to join a game.

"We're creating a graphics-rich,
'big-screen' game-playing experience for the entire family," said
Colson Hillier, director of new product development for Verizon. "The
games that families now enjoy on their PCs will become larger than
life, more fun to play and accessible in virtually every room of the
house, through linkages between a family's PC and their TV. This is an
extension of Verizon's commitment to provide customers with the content
and service they want, whenever they want it, and however they want to
receive it."
