AOL going for free webmail

“AOL plans to offer a free webmail service to compete directly with Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail. Does this mean AOL is trying to become something which it is not?”


Personal note: AOL name is going to kill them. Just my thought.

  • im sure the webmail will suck just about as much as aohells current level of suckyness

  • Gmail will always be used by the geekier among us. We’d NEVER have @aol.com anywhere near our names.

    That’s what I’m saying. With AOL in the name anywhere, there’s no way anyone would want one of those e-mails. Now if they disassociated themselves from the name, maybe they’d have a shot, but then that subsidiary better be full of people from geekdom.
