This is what I never understood; AOL for Broadband... OK, so I'm supposed to go out and get DSL or Cable, THEN pay AOL $30/month ON TOP OF THAT just so I can keep my silly AOL Screenname and have @aol.com at the end of my emails, which by the way, is becoming increasingly passe.
Now they're pushing this AOL security thing; ok, so I can pay AOL 30 bucks a month for security and virus protection, or I can pay McAfee 30 bucks a year. Hmmm, that's a tough one.
People are so susceptable to advertising.
if the general public was just a little smarter AOL would be out of business by now
