Remember back in 2001 when that 56k chorus of screeches meant you were connecting to the newfangled internet and you screamed at anyone who would pick up the phone? AOL felt pretty good about the stranglehold they had on the online market then. However, it was released yesterday morning (August 4th) that the service provider which helped herd us to the digital renaissance where dot-coms roam, in an ironic turn of events, is getting beat down by the same monster it helped create.

The web was awash with rumours yesterday and now there's confirmation - [URL="http://www.aol.com"]AOL[/URL] has sold [URL="http://www.bebo.com"]Bebo[/URL] to [URL="http://www.criterioncapital.co.uk"]Criterion Capital Partners[/URL]. The "why sell" question is too easy to answer to even bother with - it was dying on its backside. The early adopters of social media were fond of Bebo, and some creative types put a drama on it, [URL="http://www.bebo.com/Profile.jsp?MID=367137231&MemberId=4337221200"]Katemodern[/URL], which had a nomination for a Bafta award for innovative use of technology. That was a lifetime ago in the social web. By the time I wrote my book last year it was more of a footnote - the place …

I think that technology has made it easier for us to use and access social media all of the time. I remember back in the old days, I will only use my AOL email after work hours. Now I can check it anytime!!

Once upon a time, AOL was the king of online experience. Now, it might just be a tiny leftover kingdom. So I was not surprised when I read that membership is going down. [url]http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-aol-revenue-2009-11?utm_source=Triggermail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=SAI%20Chart%20Of%20The%20Day%2C%20Wednesday%2011%2F04%2F09[/url] I used to use AOL and I still do. I thank God I dont pay 8 cents a minute anymore to use their search engine. So do you use AOL? Why not or yes?

[url]http://mashable.com/2009/10/06/gmail-accounts-exposed/[/url] The link above this is to a report on Mashable that one day after 10,000+ hotmail accounts had their usernames and passwords posted on-line due to a phishing scheme, today the same problem has hit GMail, Yahoo, AOL, Earthlink and Comcast accounts bringing the total number of compromised accounts to over 30,000. Google has already taken steps to correct this by forcing password resets on all affected accounts. All are advised to check their accounts.

My colleague Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols waxed nostalgically on Monday in his [URL="http://blogs.computerworld.com/so_long_compuserve_nice_to_have_known_you"]Computerworld Cyber Cynic[/URL] blog about CompuServe, the long-time service that shut down recently, and which Vaughan-Nichols says he's going to miss. As much as I like [URL="http://twitter.com/sjvn"]SJVN[/URL], I have to say good riddance to old technology. It long outlived its time and I'm frankly surprised it lasted this long. [B]Back in the Day[/B] As Vaughan-Nichols pointed out, in the early 90s, before any of us became aware of a concept known as the World Wide Web, we used services like CompuServe and AOL to communicate with one another on …

I've written about the importance of knowing your investments before you buy them. You might remember the story about Fidelity Magellan mutual fund legend Peter Lynch, who would spend his Saturdays walking around Boston looking to see where shoppers were spending their money. Then he'd invest Magellan's money in the same company's stock. That's why retailers like The Gap, Target and Boston Chicken found their way into Lynch's high-flying fund. An article in today's Motley Fool has a similar theme. Writer Selena Maranjian tells the story of buying America Online back in 1995 after being impressed on how easy the …

Anyone remember all the fuss back at the end of 2005 when, in December of that year, it was revealed that Google had managed to beat off the attentions of Microsoft to ensure that its relationship with AOL remained good? The [URL="http://www.nytimes.com/2005/12/16/technology/16cnd-aol.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&adxnnlx=1218404764-tWD3Cl9qLyg5YnYCxoIULw&oref=slogin"]New York Times reported[/URL] at the time how Time Warner had agreed to sell a 5 percent stake in AOL to Google for $1 Billion. Of course, the deal was really all about online advertising share. Not only in helping keep Google right there at the top of the online ad brokerage tree, but perhaps just as importantly to …

That's what the [URL="http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121623279341859201.html?mod=hpp_us_whats_news"]Wall Street Journal[/URL] seems to think anyway. I can't help but be a little cynical about this, what with their would-be deal with Yahoo! hardly cold in its grave. The cold-hearted journalist in me tends to see conspiracy theories wherever it looks, so please forgive me if I indulge in one right now. But wouldn't it be odd, after Microsoft had been trying to pressurise Yahoo! into a snap decision last week, if they were actually using another company just to apply a little pressure. Surely that wouldn't happen. Not really..?

To everyone who thought the social networking revolution had started to falter, Bebo has 850 million reasons to disagree after AOL agreed to acquire them for $850 million in cash. Analyst eMarketer predicts that by 2011, $4.1 billion will be spent worldwide for social network advertising, and in 2008 alone the global ad spend for social networking is expected to increase 75% year over year, amounting to $2.1 billion. The Bebo community has something in the region of 40 million members worldwide, with a particular focus in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand. The deal comes just seven days after …

More turmoil at AOL today, as the technology giant fired the head of its Platform A ad-network business yesterday. Blodget, reporting on the ever-valuable Tech Ticker portal on Yahoo.com’s finance site, says that Curt Viebranz, was canned, but there was little love for AOL's senior management. One reason why Viebranz was let go was because he forwarded a budget estimate that AOL leaders concluded could not be made. Blodget says the firing is symptomatic of larger problems at the company, saying that AOL “is disintegrating” right now. “There is nothing positive to say about near term performance of AOL – …

AOL has announced its [URL="http://developers.aimphoneline.com/"]AIM Phoneline Developer Initiative[/URL] that will allow voice application developers and device manufacturers to create new tools to extend the functionality of the still relatively new AIM Phoneline service. Examples of the new APIs for call personalization (or ringtones as mere non-marketing mortals might say), untethered devices (that will be cordless handsets then) and incoming call management (caller ID and the like) will be on show at booth 449 at the Fall 2006 VON conference, running from September 11th - 14th at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. A move that makes good sense if AOL …

The growing acceptance of IM in the workplace has, eventually, made an impression on [URL="http://www.aol.com"]AOL [/URL]which has started a public test of AIM Pro PE (Professional Edition). Although not expected to actually launch until the autumn, one has to wonder how much weight the consumer oriented AOL brand carries in the corporate marketplace and whether it can successfully carve a profitable niche there. Designed to cover a broad corporate church, everything from the individual IT professional through to the medium sized businesses, AOL have invested heavily in doing just that. Developed in conjunction with web conferencing and online meeting specialist …

Telephone customers who use the relatively new Voice over Internet Protocol technology to power their phones need to understand how 911 dialing works. If they don’t, they’ll lose their phone service, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Here’s the reason: In the past, when emergency calls were received by 911 call centers from VoIP lines, the operators had no information as to the whereabouts of the caller. Unlike traditional landline phone service, which attaches detailed location information to all phone numbers, VoIP lines have no information. In the case of an emergency, when callers sometimes cannot give his or her …

Congress is debating an Energy bill, and one of the measures of that bill is to lengthen Daylight Savings Time about a month. For those who may be outside of the US, or places along the equator, there are some countries that change their time clocks to take advantage of more sunlight during the local summer months. In the United States, we change our clocks at the first Sunday in April, and again at the last Sunday in October. In April, we move our clocks ahead one hour (Spring Ahead), and in October, we move them back (Fall Back). By …
