Using AOL

Category: Internet

Your Mailbox: "You've got another CD!" should be AOL's catch-phrase. There must be some marketing calculation that says if you bombard the populace with enough junk mail enough times you will somehow make a profit. That's possibly true, but I am proud to say none of my money has gone to support the effort. As Andrew Sinclair says: "to me AOL is a company that sends me lots of plastic and paper in an attempt to get me to spend $20 a month for slow internet access guarded by a minefield of advertising." There are plenty of alternatives. On the other hand, these guys are brilliant.
