    Like him or not, Steve Case is anything but stupid... He went from being the head of a ****ty online service that was #3 behind Prodigy and CompuServe back in the days before people had any idea what the internet was, when retrieving information via computer seemed like a novelty to the average person, to owning the largest media company in the world. (And CompuServe and Prodigy)

    AOL's appeal is that it is (crippled) Internet for Dummies.

    Woz is a geek.

    Jobs is a simplicity freak, not Woz.

    If woz took over AOL, it would work, and it would work well, however setup and configuration would be beyond your average Grannies and such.

    If Jobs were running AOL, it would get very pretty, much more relaible, but it would still be too 'simple' as a real ISP.

    Best advice, run away from AOL, stay away, and let them fade away.

    One thing most people either don't know, or don't remember, is that AOL was originally Mac-only.:eek::D :p :cool: Not that this has much relevance in this thread, but I just thought I'd mention it.

    Bad deal. If AOL fades away, then that leaves MSN to monopolize the market. We all know we don't want that. :eek:
