Apparently the Netscape brand still has legs in terms of market presence
and value.  Sure makes sense to me.

AOL is probably getting a bit desparate given all the competition in the
access biz these days.  There have been some recent articles about
competition in the access arena and broadband penetration, notably the
SBC/Yahoo service.  A friend of mine in Palo Alto, CA just dropped his
AOL account in favor of the SBC/Yahoo DSL offering.

And it was kind of amusing to read another article about AOL/TW
officially changing its name back and dropping AOL.
