I recently was sent an email regarding a study being conducted by AOL, regarding AIM. I filled oit the survey, the second question being "Do you have a credit card?" I said "No" and the survey ended. I do hope that this is not a sign of things to come. What I see are: 1) It was for the hell of it. 2) They will soon charge for AIM 3) Premium services 4) Maybe this has something to do with the Apple Music service.... Could AOL and Apple be together on this, and be using the AIM network to deliver music to subscribers? Edit: I was able to retake it, and many of the questions focus on dating services. In fact, they all focused on dating services. So, it looks like chocices 1,2,4 are out.
