Wall Street News Alert: VSPC Is Wednesday's Stock to Watch! October 25, 2006

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL--(Marketwire - October 25, 2006) - Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: VIASPACE Inc. (OTCBB: VSPC), ActivIdentity Corp. (NASDAQ: ACTI), Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) and Atheros Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHR).

VIASPACE Inc. (OTCBB: VSPC) should continue to have the attention of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday the company, dedicated to commercializing proven technologies from NASA and the US Department of Defense, issued a press release announcing that Dr. Carl Kukkonen, CEO of VIASPACE and its subsidiary, Direct Methanol Fuel Cell Corporation (DMFCC), was interviewed by the Japanese newspaper Nikkei Business Daily during his recent trip to Japan where he visited OEMs that are working on direct methanol fuel cells and DMFCC's cartridge manufacturing partners.

News of the interview may raise the attention of investors! The interview resulted in an article published on October 17 in Japanese. The English translation of the headline is "Practical Applications of Micro Fuel Cells Is Close at Hand, But Royalty Issues Emerge." The article discusses the patents licensed from Caltech to DMFCC, and DMFCC's business strategy where DMFCC is willing to provide patent protection to OEMs in exchange for their use of DMFCC methanol fuel cartridges.

Wall Street News Alert is placing Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of VIASPACE! DMFCC focuses on producing methanol fuel cartridges that will provide the energy source for laptop computers, cell phones and other portable electronic devices to be powered by direct methanol fuel cells.

Fuel cells are expected to gain a substantial market share because they offer longer operating time as compared to current lithium ion batteries and may be instantaneously recharged by simply replacing the disposable fuel cartridge. It has been announced that direct methanol fuel cells are being developed for portable electronic applications by companies such as Samsung and LG in Korea, and by Toshiba, NEC, Hitachi and Sanyo in Japan.

Originally founded in 1998 with the objective of transforming proven space and defense technologies from NASA and the Department of Defense into hardware and software solutions that solve today's complex problems, VIASPACE benefits from important patent and software licenses from Caltech, which manages NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The stock closed yesterday at Seventy One cents a share.
