We are pleased to announce the addition of THE VERGE to our Breaking 
News Online publications. The Verge was founded in 2011 in 
partnership with Vox Media, and covers the intersection of 
technology, science, art, and culture. Its mission is to offer 
in-depth reporting and long-form feature stories, breaking news 
coverage, product information, and community content in a unified and 
cohesive manner. The Verge won five Webby Awards for the year 2012 
including awards for Best Writing (Editorial), Best Podcast for The 
Vergecast, Best Visual Design, Best Consumer Electronics Site and the 
Best Mobile News App.

This publication is now available on the telephone, on WEB NEWS ON 
DEMAND, and on the iPhone app. For telephone users, The Verge is 
available as a BREAKING NEWS publication. To access this, you should 
select option number 5 from the main menu, labeled for NEWSPAPERS in 
a DIFFERENT STATE. Then select the option for BREAKING NEWS ONLINE, 
which is option number 1. From there select the option for THE VERGE.

For iPhone users, first navigate to the PUBLICATION OPTIONS. From 
there, select PUBLICATION GROUPS. Finally you can find THE VERGE as a 
newspaper under the BREAKING NEWS ONLINE group.

For those using WEB NEWS ON DEMAND, THE VERGE will be available 
either from an ALPHABETICAL listing or if you prefer, you can access 

We hope you enjoy this new addition to the service. Stay tuned for 
more additions over the next few weeks.

Happy Reading from the NFB-NEWSLINE Team!
