Big news was announced yesterday from 5BARz International Inc. (OTCBB: BARZ): the Company is pleased to reveal that Mr. Finis Conner, one of the original founders of Seagate Technology (STX), has joined the Advisory Board of 5BARz International Inc., effective immediately. For his entire career, Finis Conner has correctly identified and executed winning trends in the lightning fast technology industry.

In 1979, Conner recognized the trend towards smaller computers and conceived the original 5 1/4", 5MB Winchester disc drive which led to co-founding Seagate Technology. Many computer manufactures at the time didn't see the need for that much memory but Conner sought out and later sold Steve Jobs at Apple Computer (AAPL), 95% of his first year's production. Today, Seagate is the largest drive company in the world with a $12 Billion market capitalization, 50,000 employees and shipping over 50,000,000 drives per quarter.

Conner also found an eager partner in Compaq Computer who invested $35,000,000 in the new Conner Peripherals and became the launch customer for the 3 1/2" Winchester Drive.

Conner Peripherals was an instant success and became the fastest-growing company in U.S. history with Conner leading the growth of the company to $1.4 billion in sales in only its 4th year and $2.7 billion in its 10th year, when he engineered the sale of the company to his former company and then rival, Seagate.

"I have been working for years to provide solutions to the very rapidly growing Mobile markets for communication, content, financial, ID and security. 5BARz has a global focus in bringing a unique and important solution to the mobile communication markets around the world and this will provide long term value to these markets. I am very pleased to have an opportunity to participate with the members of management and a distinguished Advisory Board," stated Mr. Conner
